“Religion is a bulwark against globalisation for a lot of people, particularly in the Islamic world. You see people seeing globalisation as something that has to be warded off, and religion is a form of comfort you retreat to.”

    I missed it on Thanksgiving, but its never to late.

    What does an Atheist have to be thankful for?

    I’m thankful for life! Thank you those who cherish freedom, equality, and justice. Thank you science, progress, and education. Thank you friends and family.

    Thank you Chris, Terrence, Oxy, Hypatia, Peb, dragonknight, Joe, Holysmokes, Brian, Heretic, John, sjburnt, GoodWithoutGod, BornAgainAtheist, diane, and Mr Syme for spirited, thought provoking, and many times enlightening debate. *Not all inclusive, sorry if you’re missed.

    How lucky I am to be on this planet. Sorry I might be just a bit annoying during my stay.

    Sorry I left you out.
    Must be some remnants of an ‘attitude towards authority’ I may still harbor.

    thx for all you do 🙂
