What Use is Religion?

What Use is Religion?

In addition to giving New Atheists something to pummel, religion has provided a stabilising and organising force in society.  The guest this week In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Face Television is Winton Higgins, a secular Buddhist from Australia who applauds the effects that the Anglican Book of Common Prayer had on British Society (and its heirs) from the 16th to the 20th century.    Like his counterparts in Christianity, he sees value in keeping his feet on the ground and steering away from notions of supernaturalism, while acknowledging positive aspects of religion.

"In Conversation with Noel Cheer", Face Television, Monday October 28th at 7:00pm, repeated on Tuesday October 29th at 12 noon.
