Catherder, Thanks for helping us all out with this thread. Much appreciated. I didn't realise there were so many people asking you variations of the same questions. And there I was thinking I was being a freethinker! ;) How long has the site been going now? I don't think Ireland is a relatively athe...

I don't think I'm making presumptions.. Just running possibilities by you all. After all, I'm still in the research stage. The forum here has really helped me out, and has clarified my focus, and has sharpened the reality of what's going on in our country. I've been mostly going on my own experience...

I haven't seen much evidence of atheism rurally. I'm from the middle of nowhere too, and the vast majority of the people I know have a rather unquestioning faith.Although, yet again, I know I'm generalising. It may be a symptom of my age group too and the homogenisation of beliefs and interests that...

I hereby abandon the term popular atheism, as it doesn't really properly portray what I meant. What I had hoped to put across wasn't that atheism was a statement. Simply that there seems to be an influx in people speaking about it and people feeling comfortable saying that they are atheists. Pardon ...

Well, I think that's part of my quest here. What I'm hoping to do is to dispel misconceptions, or if nothing else identify them. I realise that atheism isn't a fad by any means, but it just seems to be a topic which is very current and is the subject of much debate at the moment. In what has always ...

Well, truth be told, I'm not sure yet. It's something that's been playing on my mind for a while now, so much of the reason for my undertaking this project is to clarify that. Obviously, that's not the sole reason, but it's definitely part of it. I've been called catholic my whole life; so call it a...

Atheism dissertation

Hey folks, I come here in search of a little help. I'm a final year journalism student, and as such, I have to write my final dissertation. I've chosen to do a project on what I've termed "popular atheism" especially in an Irish context. I want to look at atheism, not just as an expression of disbel...
