Updates

1. I now live in Salisbury, UK.

2. I've rewritten "The Commercialist Mass Media: The Bane of Human Cultural Evolution" by Vexen Crabtree (2009), and it now includes a list of the most popular newspapers along with notes on their quality and worth. I've written a large new section on democracy & the mass media. In short: Very few facts that appear in the news are checked, and much of the input in most news sources results from public-relations commercial material and industry lobby groups that often pretend to be grassroots citizen (or science) groups. It's worth reading for a general heads-up on the potential, hidden, sources of bias in the news. Its worse than you think!

3. I've written an introduction to "Anti-Religious Forces: Specific Factors Fuelling Secularisation" by Vexen Crabtree (2003), introducing secularism, modernism, science, multiculturalism, and individuals such as Prof. Paul Kurts and Prof. Richard Dawkins.

4. I'm off to Amphifest in Germany tomorrow.

Actually it is quite nice. Sometimes there are quite a lot of teenage students malingering and (worse) filling up Starbucks, but it is nice. It only just gets away with being called a "city" though.

Every year or so there is a alternative ball on here, I'm sure we can accomodate a few peeps when the time comes so you can see the area for yourself!
