If Aesop Were an Atheist… February 14, 2014

If Aesop Were an Atheist…

A lot of kids are taught morals at Sunday School or through watered-down biblical stories, but Matthew Brackney thinks there’s a way to elucidate a lot of those values without religion. It’s kind of like Aesop’s stories, but with a non-religious theme. He’s calling it “The Freethinker’s Book of Fables“:

What are the lessons he’d like to convey? They include: the danger of groupthink, the problem with traditions that go unexamined, and why we shouldn’t fear reason.

Very cool idea and one that needs some funding before it can become a reality. If you like the concept, considering chipping in to Matthew’s Kickstarter!
