Any meetings in Tralee or Killarney? Both Limerick and Cork groups quite a distance to travel! Indeed, any Humanists here at all?!
I shall be at your next meeting, looking forward to it. I did not even know there was a local group until I saw a fine article in the Limerick Post about it this week. Well done !
Agamirza, you may attend the next meeting, with our welcome.
I am 17 years old, can I come?
I hardly write comments, but i did some searching and wound up here Next Meeting Mid-west Humanists – An Irish Atheist Community. And I actually do have some questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of the comments look like left by brain dead people? And, if you are writing on additional sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
The June meeting looked at features of the Constitution of Ireland that have religious content and are incompatible with a secular state. These articles discriminate against people who have no religion.
The meeting voted that many parts of articles would be best removed.
At the next meeting on 18 July 2012, the meeting is to examine further articles.
When the list of articles that should be changed in order to make the Constitution fully secular is complete, some of the Mid West Humanists will visit the TDs in the region to put the case for these amendments to the Constitution.
Atheists and Gnostics are right in most of their thinking
It has been common among religious believers to look with misgiving to atheists and Gnostics, and to think that they are mistaken; however, in many instances the opposite is the truth; some religious beliefs are not just irrelevant, but baseless. The “God” of main line traditions simply does not exist. I accepted the challenge of finding the One who may be recognized even by Gnostics and atheists: the Existence itself, “All-That-Is.” If something is there, that is God. Look at the book “Christianity Reformed From ist Roots – A life centered in God” (Amazon.com). I am confident that some of your friends will be relieved of the illusion, as I did myself.
