(Washington, DC—Feb. 12, 2014)—Today’s launch of TheHumanist.com by the American Humanist Association is giving humanists and other nontheists a fresh place to get daily original reporting and commentary on issues important to a growing godless worldview. The new media hub will also be seen as a vital resource for others who recognize the increasing cultural need for discourse free from the constraints of theology.

“TheHumanist.com will provide fresh news and lively commentary from a humanist perspective on a wide range of political and cultural issues,” said Jennifer Bardi, editor of the Humanist magazine and senior editor for TheHumanist.com. “It’s a new opportunity for humanists to reach the general public with original reporting and high-quality articles.”

TheHumanist.com will have new material posted from a wide range of well-respected names in the secular community, including Janet Asimov, Greta Christina, Rob Boston, and Marty Klein. The site will also be the new home for the American Humanist Association’s Humanist magazine, The Humanist Hour podcast, and is absorbing the Humanist Network News e-zine. The site is also mobile-friendly, with plans to expand its offerings through videos and other multimedia.

“Millions of humanists and atheists are absorbing information about the secular movement through the Internet, and TheHumanist.com will serve as an online hub for this growing community,” added Maggie Ardiente, senior editor for TheHumanist.com and communications director for the American Humanist Association.

The launch of TheHumanist.com purposely coincides with International Darwin Day, a project of the American Humanist Association that looks to mark the anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth on Feb. 12 each year as a global celebration of science and reason, a way to also describe the new media hub’s purpose.

Founded in 1941 and headquartered in Washington, DC, the American Humanist Association (AHA) works to protect the rights of humanists, atheists, and other non-religious Americans. The AHA advances the ethical and life-affirming philosophy of humanism, which—without beliefs in any gods or other supernatural forces—encourages individuals to live informed and meaningful lives that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
