9780692324813: GODLESS -- Living a Valuable Life Beyond Beliefs: Volume 6

Beliefs divide us, Values unite us. The contemporary history of religious and political ideologies is bloody. From the Nazi Holocaust to beheadings by Islamic Jihadist terrorists, fanatics have divided the world into believers and heretics. Their propaganda has persuaded followers to torture and slaughter unbelievers. The cure for the pathology of fanatical beliefs: Fight Violence with Values! Discard religious doctrines and political ideologies. Let shared values be the guides of personal and policy decisions. "Godless" illuminates a way forward into a more harmonious and peaceful future. It offers a remedy to revive religion and increase political participation. It advocates a pragmatic middle way to counter both fundamentalist extremism and secular apathy through communal activism. Godless -- Living a Valuable Life beyond Beliefs begins as a memoir reaching back into the author's Puritan family history and the Salem witch trials. Rasley's worldwide travels, spiritual quest, and intellectual journey took him far from his small town roots in the Presbyterian Church and Republican Party. Fascination with cultures very different from his Hoosier homeland developed during adventure travel breaks from studies in London and the University of Chicago. A successful law practice eventually allowed him the freedom to combine ethnographic research with mountaineering expeditions and philanthropy projects. A special bond with the Rai people of Basa village developed during Rasley's "philanthro-trekking" in the Nepal Himalayas. Indianapolis First Friends Quaker Meeting agreed to sponsor fundraising for a foundation Rasley developed in partnership with Basa village. These dissimilar people on opposite sides of the world share fundamental values in their tolerant, peaceful, and simple approach to life. "Godless" blends what Rasley has learned from the Basa Rai and Quakers with the classic American philosophy of Pragmatism to describe a values-based way of living. It encourages a spiritual response of awe and gratitude and advocates replacing divisive ideological politics with pragmatic decision-making. Godless -- Living a Valuable Life beyond Beliefs is a critique of fundamentalist religions and extremist political ideologies. It advocates guiding our lives by positive values and making pragmatic decisions. If we abandon superstitious beliefs, we can rally around the fundamental values of taking good care of ourselves, assisting those in need, and tending to the needs of our shared world. "Godless" recommends a modern pragmatic version of the Judeo-Christian ethic of loving self and neighbor. It does not encourage readers to abandon their religious communities, but suggests a way to worship focused on awe and gratitude. It doesn't demand leaving political parties, but proposes a pragmatic method of conflict resolution to replace the political gridlock of divisive ideological politics. "Living a valuable life beyond beliefs" is a way of living with mindful attention to caring for ourselves and others. It is derived from the cultural wisdom of the Rai people of Nepal, values advocated by the Quaker Society of Friends, and the classical philosophy of American Pragmatism. It is a way to find a golden mean of balance between selfishness and selflessness. Jeff Rasley's undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago combined concentrations in Philosophy, Religion, and Politics; he received a J.D. from Indiana University and M.Div from Christian Theological Seminary. He is a professor at Butler University teaching an Honors class on philanthropy and nonprofit organizations.

Jeff was lead plaintiff in a class action requiring the clean-up of the White River after it was polluted by an industrial chemical spill. Jeff is the founder and president of the Basa Village Foundation USA, which raises money for culturally sensitive development work in Nepal. He currently serves as an officer or director for five nonprofit corporations. He is U.S. liaison for the Himalayan expedition company Adventure GeoTreks Ltd.

He was given a Key to the City of Indianapolis for serving as an intern to Mayor Hudnut and preparing a report on the safety conditions of all Indy Parks. He received the Man of the Year award from the Arthur Jordan YMCA and the Alumni Service Award from the University of Chicago. Jeff describes reading Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past as great an adventure as climbing Himalayan peaks.
