Speeches from the international atheist conference 2006

Here you can find most of the speeches and Power Point presentations from the international conference „A Positive Voice for Atheism in Iceland“ which was held in Reykjavik in June 2006. The conference was a huge success and received good coverage by the media. There were 106 participants. Some of the speakers did not have any written material and we are still waiting to receive the written speeches from others. We will post them as we receive them.

For humanists morality is not a divine gift! We're more likely to think it's something like "an intrinsic part of human nature based on understanding and a concern for others", as stated in the Amsterdam Declaration (goo.gl/bj4DdM).

David Pineda, President of Humanistas Guatemala, reaffirms this idea in his entry for the #HumanistPrism series. Help us by sharing his quote!
