Chris Worfolk - A History of Atheist Charity

  • 13 years ago
People have often claimed that religious people are more generous when it comes to giving to charity. The stats don't hold up though - Sweden give the biggest percentage of their GDP to charity in the world; they're also one of the most irreligious nations.

In this talk, Chris Worfolk discusses how the atheist movement already has a long and proud history of charitable organisations and activities, most notably with the rise of the ethical societies in the nineteenth century, up to present day organisations.
