I am a strong advocate of knowing one's historical, cultural and genetic background. History matters in spite of all the efforts to leave traditions behind. For me, understanding my ancestor's Irish background helps me understand our familial hatred of anything government. Our family descended from Irish immigrants who left Ireland in the 1840s because of the Irish famine. It was a political famine, caused by British landowners not allowing the Irish farmers access to the grains they grew… Continue

Skeprechauns just put up my Dublin talk on The God Virus. Kind of interesting to listen to with the Kansas connection. I was there to talk at Science City at the invitation of the Skeptics in the Pub. http://skepticireland.com/skeprechauns-special-dr-darrel-ray-talks-to-irish-skeptics

I will be speaking at the Community of Reason this weekend on "Ireland the Powder Keg." Reflecting on my recent trip to Ireland and what I
learned about the secular community, Atheist Ireland, Michael Nugent (leader of AI) and the Catholic Paedophile Church. http://communityofreason.net/

After three weeks, I am back from an wonderful trip to Ireland where I met so many fun and interesting people. Most of all, I learned first hand the challenges and creativity of the people of Atheist Ireland. From Michael Nugent to Paul Gill to others like Rebecca O'Neill, John Buckley and Senator Ivana Bacik
. Ireland has special challenges but also some amazing… Continue

Had a great crowd at Science Gallery (in Dublin Ireland) last night to
talk about The God
Virus. It was well organized with a beautiful facility. We "shared a
pint or two" at a local pub after wards. It seemed a proper Irish thing
to do. I talk to Atheist Ireland tomorrow (Saturday).

I need some help. I will be traveling to Ireland this summer and would like to contact freethinker or atheist groups to talk about The God Virus. So far I have reached out to a couple of groups with no response. They don't know me or the book, so may be reluctant to respond. If anyone knows someone or has contact with groups in Ireland, I would appreciate a good word or a contact name.
Thanks for any help.

If I lived in Ireland right now, I couldn't legally say St. Patrick was responsible for a horrible crime: inflicting Christianity on the Emerald Isle. Image from Wikipedia.

Today's story on the Irish children's work schools is great confirmation of my contention that God Viruses always protect their vectors. See this link:
Those of you who have read my book will clearly see the virus at work in this article. This went on from the 1930's till at least the 1990's and Catholic authorities knew it in detail, but continued to protect the vectors. These people will really… Continue
