The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.

Michael Nugent and my friend John Hamill deserve much of the credit as do other members of Atheist Ireland. As you know I have often mentioned Blasphemy here. Here is a video that Michael gave in Paris recently, outlining the raison d’etre for Atheist Ireland.

Alabama does school a lot of engineering students and build great rocket engines. I find the folks to be very friendly. May wanna underplay the atheist thing however….October 1, 2017 at 10:23 pm #5714
True. I hung out with an ex-marine from Alabama for a few weeks in Malta of all places. Turned out he lived 2 miles from me back in Ireland. Many beers later…..
Last time I was driving there we stopped for a coffee in McDonalds in Albertville. When an elderly couple in the queue heard my accent they assumed I was Scottish and wanted to know if I was there for the revival. I managed to “zip it” when they said their friends would be going over to Scotland for a Bible study seminar. I had a very civil and polite conversation with them. As I left to sit down about 6 guys in camouflage came in to join them. “Hey pops” said one of them. I was thinking to myself “This is weird”. My brother explained that they were hunters!! I said I hoped nobody started playing a banjo! (My bad).October 5, 2017 at 7:25 am #5755
I think the Cognitive Science of Religion is very interesting and worthwhile. However, they’re aaaaallll missing the main point, which could be described as the self-maintaining and self-regenerating properties of all living things. Any living thing, biologically, takes full advantage of whatever circumstances are available.
There is this TV programme which has just been broadcast in the UK (I haven’t watched it yet):
“The Human Body: Secrets of Your Life Revealed – S1E2 “Survive”
In this programme, Drs Chris and Xand van Tulleken discover the everyday miracles that keep you alive. They explore the extraordinary lengths our bodies go to in order to keep our organs working at every moment of every day. They see how powerful reflexes keep us safe from danger and uncover the amazing mechanisms our bodies call on to repair damage. And for the first time ever, they see exactly how our immune system’s killer cells go into battle against deadly infection.”
Really, almost everything about the human body and mind acts in this same direction.
