The blog covers issues related to humanist parenting, as well as social, political and cultural issues from the perspective of a Humanist Dad.

The author

I’m a humanist community builder and activist with over a decades experience in humanist ans organisations, stretching back to student secular societies at university.

As of June 2022, I have been quoted in over 300 articles predominantly on secularist education issues, published over 100 opinion pieces on a range of AHS+ issues, produced dozens of podcast episodes, spoken at dozens of humanist groups, and appeared on dozens of media interviews and debates, including television and radio.

In June 2022 I moved to Humanists UK to work to focus on building inclusive and effective local humanist communities.

Between March 2014 and June 2022, I was employed by the National Secular Society in various capacities, leaving as head of education and the UK’s leading secularist education activist.

The views expressed on this website and associated media are my own personal opinions, and should not be taken to represent those of any current or former employers of the author.


This blog was previously known as AHS+ blog and covered topics related to:

Atheism: The lack of belief in gods.

Humanism: A philosophy which holds that human reason and empathy, rather than supernatural concerns should lead our approach to life. Most humanism is nontheistic, however, many people manifest their humanism through a religious tradition.

Secularism: A political philosophy which challenges religious privilege and promotes both freedom of and from religion. There are many approaches to secularism and this blog is situated very much within the liberal humanist tradition.

Plus: Philosophies and worldviews closely related to those above, including scientific scepticism, freethought and rationalism.

Anything else?: Football, politics, science fiction, feminism, family, sex, love, social enterprise and anything else I feel like writing about.
