  1. What meeting room in The Absolute Hotel is used ? I went in one Wednesday and could not find the meeting.

  2. 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 !

  3. Agamirza, you may attend the next meeting, with our welcome.

  4. I am 17 years old, can I come?

  5. 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.

  6. I’m afraid we’re a local group but both the HAI (http://www.humanism.ie/) and Atheist Ireland (http://www.atheist.ie/) are national groups and may organise meetings nearer to you.

    In particular the HAI website lists a meeting in the Galway Bay Hotel, Galway at 12.00 on the last Sunday of each month. http://www.humanism.ie/monthly-meetings

  7. 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.
