imageMen become civilised , not in proportion to their willingness to believe, but in proportion to their readiness to doubt – H L Mencken

Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature – Carl Sagan

There was a time when religion ruled the world. It is known as the Dark Ages – Ruth Hurmence Green


Over the past week three things I now know for sure:-

  • A Secular Society is the way forward…. the only real route to a tolerant society
  • Religious fanaticism is  the enemy ,only an idiot would deny faith is the seedbed that creates fanaticism
  • We have the right to ridicule the ridiculous


  • LEBANON – A suicide attack in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli has kills at least seven people, in the latest violence linked to Syria. A so called ‘revenge attack’
  • NIGERIAN SUICIDE BOMBER – At least 19 people killed and several injured by a bomb strapped to a 10 year old girl in Maiduguri, Borno State,  Nigeria
  • BAGA, NIGERIA – Boko Haram’s deadliest massacre- 2,000 feared dead. Hundreds of bodies – too many to count. Fighting dated 3rd January
  • RAIF BADAWI – Saudi blogger sentenced to 10 years and 1000 lashes – for blasphemy
  • PAKISTAN – Asia Bibi, Christian given death penalty for insulting the muslim prophet
  • PAKISTAN – 22nd December, Taliban attacked the school killing 141 of which 132 were children.
  • CHARLIE HEBDO – 12 people murdered including 4 cartoonists bringing the total to 70 International journalists killed in the last 12 months
  • BOKO HARAM – now control 20,000 square miles of territory – an area the size of Belgium

I could go on but this list I believe makes the point.

The media seem to want to try and make sense of it all….. don’t, it’s nonsensical!


Just a few points I wish to make:-

  • A Secular Society would stop faith turning towards fanaticism.  We were not saying all theists are terrorists – we are saying it will lead some theists towards it. A single terrorist is one too many!
  • If religion enables fanaticism then there is something wrong with your religion
  • How insane is it to have a mythological ideology that causes you to wreak vengeance on behalf of an imaginary friend.  Theists are the infants of society, they just simply haven’t grown up yet.  the fanatics are the children in the playground that like to pull legs of spiders – thats the only difference.
  • The moderate theists are just as dangerous as they cherry pick their beliefs and stand by and let the fundamentalists thrive whilst they keep silent.
  • Cause and effect- who/what corrupted that ten year old Nigerian girl, indoctrination and brainwashing a deadly corruption by religion.  Anyone telling me that they believe in a ‘loving god’ haven’t read the small print.  Or more to the point when they say ‘oh but that’s not my god!’ I answer, of course not, everyones idea of god depends on their own imagination, you made him up to be how you wish him to be … simples, huh?
  • If you want to say god and nothing to do with it?  They were just insane individuals – you are doing them a disservice.  they believed they were doing this in the name of their prophet – without their religion they wouldn’t have had the reason or want to do such a heinous thing.  God did have something to do with it in their eyes.  God is man made, do you get it yet?  You need to realise your imaginary friend is a cancer eating away at the minds of men.  Destructive and hateful, dogma and bigotry that you condone.
  • Such a waste of life for a myth – ludicrous.  Can you imagine how insane we find theism, the whole principle and so called moral code you live by was invented by goat herders – your primitive religious texts are a nonsense – even more so when it makes ‘religious terrorist’ kill in the name of a man made ideology.
  • Let me make this clear a secular society is a tolerant society. None of the hundreds of religions teach tolerance outside of their own religion.  You can deny it…. or you can get a grip!
  • Religion is the Grand Delusion – if you wish to stay deluded despite all evidence to the contrary – you are a victim of your own imagination.


  • Religion needs stricter controls – for the safety of humanists and all religions
  • Islamic terrorists – are the responsibility of the Muslim community.  You need to solve the problem from within. These idiots are taught and recruited for Al Qaeda, ISIS etc from Mosques and faith schools. The core fault lies within your religion.
  • Schools need to become places of intellectual safety – a religion free zone.
  • Religion is an evil that man can do without – the sooner the better
  • In the meantime, to co-exist within a normal civilised society – Islam needs major reform. You need to wake up and sort your house out!


  • Charlie Hebdo, will be printing this week, said columnist Patrick Pelloux. ‘Stupidity will not win’ Their usual run is 60,000 this week they will be printing 1 million copies! JeSuisCharlie
  • The agenda is set – say goodbye to religion and you get rid of religious extremism.
  • As I have said before, if in 1,000 years religion still exists, man will not!
