Freedom of Religion and the Secular State

I just realised that I should announce my new book in this forum. Details are Freedom of Religion and the Secular State (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012). If you can't afford it, maybe your local or university library can! :) See: …See More

Clive Hamilton

Opinions please. I am disconcerted to see this man - whom I consider to be an authoritarian, puritanical moralist - standing for the Greens as their candidate in the Higgins by-election.Perhaps I'm being unfair to him: I have only read his opinion pieces, not his books. Still, those should convey his views. In particular he supports censorship of the internet. He advocates a post-secular morality. Anyone more familiar with his work than I am? Should we do more (I've been doing a small amount)…See More

Hi there Russell,
I have just read 50 Voices - an excellent book! Worthy contributions. I was wondering if you knew of any literary agents that would be interested in atheistic writing. I have completed a book on free will aimed at the intelligent layman, explaining the playing field, how it interacts with religion and foreknowledge, and where society goes within a potentially deterministic framework. Would you have any hints for agents or publishers?

Hi Russell,
Wanted to tell you I really love 50 Voices of Disbelief. I am consuming it slowly. I like to read one when I'm feeling outnumbered if you know what I mean. I also saw you at the AAI convention in Burbank last October. Thank you for your contributions to this cause and community.

Hi Russell, great speech at the AAI Convention. I'm glad you made the trip. I wish I could go to the convention in Melbourne next March but unfortunately I don't think it's going to happen.

Hey Russell....Debbie here...back in San Diego. Please travel safely back home, and good luck with your book! I look forward to having a copy of my very own.

Book pimped.

Congratulations. Warren and I are discovering that editing is not the 'breeze' we thought it might have been. ;-)

Perhaps you can speak directly to the U.N. (Just a wishful thought.)

I've been informed, a couple of days ago, that I have a slot to speak at the Atheist Alliance International convention in early October - about the issue of "defamation of religion", etc.

Looking forward to it.
