I’m new here, thx for having me.
I live in Belgium, a really secular country. I don’t experience the same problems many Americans do. In my country there’s no debate about whether evolution is true or not or whether church and state should be separated. There’s no museums here that claim humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time.
That doesn’t mean it’s perfect, there’re still issues with religious organisations such as not having to pay taxes and some groups isolating themselves from the rest of society. But that doesn’t seem to be enough incentive for the activist version of atheism in which one might categorize me. There are no debates here about the subject, no projects or events. ( I also happen to like to debate people, especially if their views differ from mine, but i don’t find any theists open to debate, if i find one at all)
Still I take the matter at heart and i personally find it imperative for the human race (regardless of borders&flags;) to transcendent superstitions, misconceptions and ignorance.
So my question to Sam Harris & friends and all you fellow freethinkers is:
What can one do to contribute to this pursuit of reason? What can I do?
