By the way, is anyone else coming? (to Dublin, I mean, for the World Atheism Convention)ha ha! Cos I'm going there on my own, but I'd be glad to spend the week end with some like minded fellows who would, like me, not have any experience of Dublin and would be as lost as I'll probably be.Lost with a stranger is always better than lost alone ha
Bonjour Gilles. Welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism---a haven from the superstitions and fictional god of the masses.
"Well-founded common sense inevitably leads to atheism."
We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 450 discussion topics and 2600 members.
Welcome, Gilles! I never heard of Sociolinguistics. But, I was just reading about norms of conversation in chapter 4 of Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions, and Everyday Life by Kari Marie Norgaard.
It's awesome of you to volunteer to be a translator for the Richard Dawkins Foundation! As a supporter of the foundation, I thank you.
Now that I think about it, you're probably the perfect guy to help with projects in support of atheists in former French colonies, like in Africa, etc. They have it even harder than us American atheists.
As for anarchism, I can't quite wrap my brain around the idea of abolishing currency.
