Islamic beliefs

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 6:55pm 0 Comments

I have just received unsolicited, and politely and correctly addressed, a booket from some

Islamic academics at the university of Alexandria in Egypt, which is called "a brief illustrated guide to understanding Islam". As they tell me they got my details off the internet I suppose that any of us with a few hundred Google pages, is likely to get one.

Hi Robert, thank you for your interest in our Human Rights submission. I would love to include your concerns in our paper.

Basically, we are following the format of the Commission's Discussion Paper, but, as it is quite heavily biased towards religious respondents, we are interpreting the questions rather liberally to fit with our agenda.

There doesn't seem to be an 'obvious' place to discuss your concerns in the pro-forma, but, as we've approached that fairly liberally, perhaps your concerns might fit best in Question 1.1 where we discuss various aspects of discrimination against atheists.

You might like to peruse the Discussion Paper and see where you think your contribution should fit.

There are two ways in which you can add your contribution. You can start a discussion in our Freedom of Religion Working Group or email me at avalonbythelake at yahoo dot com dot au .

Great to meet you and to have you 'on board'.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus, Professor Gregson. I'm Kristy from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

I'd like to invite you to join our Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheists Group.

You may also be interested in taking a look at the progress of our draft paper on "Freedom of Religion and Belief in the 21st Century", to be completed and submitted to the Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission at the end of this month.

I hope you enjoy the site!

Welcome to Atheist Nexus.
You are just what we need. Check out My Own Page too.
Join good groups and their discussions and rational debate, like the busy science group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humankind, Darwin..." which has fine discussion and good writing. Terry Meaden (Oxford)
