David Diskin

We have an ethical obligation to our planet, and all the life it supports, to aspire to the greater good. Without a belief in the supernatural, a deity, or an afterlife, this task falls on us and our one opportunity to improve the well-being of others. This can be accomplished through reason and respect, using empathy as our moral compass. As Darwin said, “There is grandeur in this view of life.”
