Nonbelieving Literati, Lack of Writing, Nullifidian and Planet Humanism
I haven’t finished my homework, and I don’t even have a dog. I am thoroughly enjoying Julian, but a few things have come up in my personal life which have prevented me from finishing it in time. I have sent my apologies to the Exterminator (who posted his article on Julian today) personally, and offered to cover his kitten burning shifts for the next month. I apologise to my readers and the other members of the Literati, and I promise you this: no matter how long it takes me, I will finish it and post my article.
The same personal issues that have hindered my reading, have also obstructed my writing. I am aware that the blog is lacking its usual drive and energy, but, as I promised, things will be back to normal by October.
On another note, regular readers of my fellow British blogger Nullifidian – who has been AWOL for some time – will be pleased to hear that he’s back and raring to go again.
As Nullifidian is also the founder of Planet Humanism, I’d like to take this opportunity to give another plug to that project. At present, there are 24 blogs listed. I believe that there are many, many more blogs out there that would qualify as having humanist themes. I know people expressed concern about there being a large overlap with Planet Atheism, but as I said at the time, I don’t see it as a problem. Most atheists are humanists too. We tend to think of ourselves as atheists first, which is why we tend to think of our blogs as atheist themed, but in truth, they could just as easily be thought of as humanist. Why shouldn’t we have another place on the internet where our writings can be aggregated? I see PH as a complement to PA, not a threat. So come on, if you haven’t already, please sign up, and urge others too as well.
