A New Planet in the Atheist Solar System
Planet Atheism has become part of the furniture in the atheosphere (if you’ll allow me to mix my metaphors!). It was a wonderful project that Pedro of Way of the Mind took on, and it’s been hugely successful, and rightly so. We are all very grateful to him.
Having said that, we all tend to put the emphasis on atheism, and forget to stress the importance of humanism. Rather than simply deconstructing religion, we need to also make the case to those who have not made up their minds, or whose minds can be changed, that there is something to put in its place. Ebonmuse of Daylight Atheism hit upon this point when he founded the Humanist Symposium to complement the Carnival of the Godless. Now Nullifidian has given us a new blog aggregator, Planet Humanism, to accompany Planet Atheism.
I have already submitted A Load of Bright to be included, and I encourage all my fellow humanist bloggers to do likewise. I hope my readers will join me in wishing Nullifidian all the best for this project, and on top of offering my own blog as a contribution, I will support it in any way I can.
