Since watching Richard Dawkins’ The Root of All Evil? I’ve noticed myself becoming less tolerant of religious beliefs. I really think that it’s time for rational thinkers to stand up and be counted. I’ve been discussing this with a few friends, but within my circle of friends that’s largely… er.. preaching to the converted. On the tube last night I was wondering what my next steps might be if I wanted to get really involved in the fight againt medievalism.
And then as I was leaving the tube station someone thrust a leaflet into my hand. It said “Catholicism for the Curious”. It seems that my local catholic church is running a month of events trying to draw more people into its clutches. It starts tonight with a talk called “Is there God after Dawkins?” There’s a web site too.
If I was the kind of person who believed in such things, I’d be thinking that this was all a sign and that I’m meant to go along.
