One of our contributors, Angus Ritchie, recently debated atheist philosopher Stephen Law on whether “atheistic humanism can account for the human dignity, morality and reason it espouses.” Ritchie, along with co-author Nick Spencer, wrote an essay defending the idea ” that Christians ought to be more aware – and more proud – of their humanist credentials, rather than allowing humanism to become a cipher for atheism. Were it not for Christianity, they argue, the core ideas of humanism would simply not have developed in Europe.” You can listen to
