My boy tells me that he is not joining...

Re: Communion advice

The choice is made, we have had the chat and tomorrow I will see the teacher. I expect no problems from the school, they are good people and I am sure it will all be OK, this should not be a problem. It may be a surprise as we will as far as we can tell be the 1st to request this level of removal an...

Communion advice

I know this topic has been worked over a few times, but I would really like some advice. My wife and I (Both Atheists) have rather been at loggerheads over this, but we have finally decided that the season is now upon us and its time to get off the fence.

Re: Protest March and Rally by Secular Europe 15th sep

Hopefully it will be fun as well as effective, have been trying to round up a few people from different places to meet up, being out in the wilds I don't meet many people who feel these issues (Around secularism) are important or in many cases even real. Anyway, I am looking foreward to my visset to...

Re: Dying atheist and healing masses

Re: Dawkins and the bible plan

I think an actual fair and impartial study of the Bible along with other historical works and ancient writings would be a great way for young people to study the history of human culture, obviously along with knowledge of actual historical facts.

Re: The Irish Democratic party, Good for secularists?

I am thinking of joining them, does anyone here know any more about them as far as Education policy and a secular society are concerned? I have never considered joining a political party. What does that involve? Do you contribute in anyway as a member or is it just so they have a number of people s...
