Edward Tabash

Center for Inquiry — Los Angeles, CA

Edward Tabash is a Constitutional Lawyer in Los Angeles and Chair of the Board of Directors of the Center for Inquiry. He has filed amicus briefs arguing for the preservation of the separation of church and state with the United States Supreme Court and the California Supreme Court.

Mr. Tabash graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. from UCLA in 1973 and earned his Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School of Los Angeles in 1976.

Mr. Tabash has represented the atheistic position in formal debates against many prominent religious philosophers, including Richard Swinburne, William Lane Craig and Peter Van Inwaagen. The son of an Auschwitz survivor and an Orthodox Rabbi, Tabash has concluded after decades of study and a personal spiritual odyssey that the universe is natural with no supernatural agencies or beings. Edward Tabash believes that the general public must be exposed to arguments against the existence of any supernatural being, any God or gods. Mr. Tabash maintains that an intellectually mature society must be able to handle arguments against even the most treasured and revered belief systems.
