Nearly half of all Americans expect Jesus to return by 2050.

The poll by the Pew Research Centre questioned 1,546 adults aged 21-26 and asked them about a range of things they expected to happen by 2050.

They found 71 per cent expect cancer will be cured, 66 per cent expect artificial limbs to be working better than real ones and 53 per cent say ordinary people will travel in space.

But it was the high number who confidently predict a Second Coming that raised eyebrows.

David Silverman, spokesman for American Atheists, blamed poor…

Does organised humanism have a demographic problem?

The BHA's Voltaire Lecture

I have always been a humanist, really. But it’s only recently that I've made the effort to ‘get involved’ with humanism more actively.

At my secondary school I now run an ‘Asking Questions Club’ – “a space to discuss, with rationality, empiricism, and all-round critical thinking in mind”, reads the poster, “absolutely everyone welcome” – which has been going well.

More and more, I am also making the effort to attend lectures, talks,…

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN RELIGION IN TEN EASY STEPS!

All Hail The Great God Lardicus

 

What's the point of living if you can't create your own God? Aside from my delusions of grandeur (and how much grander can they get than God-creation?) the main reason I'm doing this is so that I can have a God I can use without offending anyone while I'm writing here on www.aPath.org. And it's fun.

While I originally wrote this for the above reason, it turned out to be a bit more…

Religious Friends

The other day, I got a question from a friend...

"Did you really say that you 'respect people too much to respect their beliefs', or something?"

So here's how that went (more or less):

"I did, yes. Kind of." I replied, grinning. "It's a quote from a guy called Johann Hari actually; 'I respect you as a person too much to respect your ridiculous beliefs' is what he said, I…

Wonder





Wonder,

a garden among the flames!

My heart can take on

any form:

a meadow for gazelles,

a cloister for monks,

For the idols, sacred ground,

Ka'ba for the circling pilgrim,

the tables of the Torah,

the scrolls of the Qur'an.

My creed is love;

wherever its caravan turns along the way,

that is my…

Disclaimer: all quotes from the AHS Convention are para-phrasings, not direct.

I've just been, yesterday, to the National Federation for Atheist, Humanist, and Secular Student Societies' conference in Conway Hall, London. The AHS are a group wholly facilitated and supported by the - perhaps more familiar - British Humanist Association, and the day involved many high-profile…
