The Secular Web is owned and operated by Internet Infidels Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting and defending a naturalistic worldview on the Internet.

As defined by Paul Draper, naturalism is "the hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system, which means that nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it." Thus, "naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities"—including God.

Quotation of the Minute
"[I]f someone under hypnosis claims to remember doing things he or she did in some previous life, it might be a trick--fraud. Or the person might be apparently remembering information learned in some ordinary--but forgotten--way. Or the person might have ESP; that is, he or she might be... picking up the information in some other extraordinary (but eventually explicable) way. Or the person might actually be remembering a previous life. These four possibilities have to be weighed against each other. For the evidence to show that people survive their bodily deaths, the evidence must favor the survival hypothesis--the fourth possible explanation--more than the other three." Daniel Kolak and Raymond Martin, Wisdom Without Answers, (Belmont, CA: Wadsworth, 1998), p. 79
