“We have millennia of secular wisdom about right and wrong. Aristotle's Ethics explains why it is important to live a good life without having to rely on a divine ruler or rewards in the afterlife. The writings of David Hume, Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill also offer insight and wisdom. And Buddhism, while having more traditionally religious strands, has a body of teaching that does not require any belief in the soul.”
