There is an increasing amount of public discussion of atheism but there is still an awful lot of confusion both inside and outside of the secular humanist movement. There are so many issues and ideas that need the time for IN_DEPTH discussion when the pressure is to skip from one idea to another with flashes of insight and anecdote.
We are facing an increasingly desperate struggle by the religions to maintain their domination of culture and society as they see the threat of reason and science to their religions, not to mention the exposure of the evil effects of their distorted thinking and attitudes.
This leads to so much superficial discussion, always dealing with the immediate topic then on to the next without taking time to explore them and draw any conclusions - not joining up the dots so that we can build up a coherent picture of what a world devoid of organised religion offers.
How can we ensure that our views and organisation will not just dissipate in the explosion as they disintegrate leaving the ground open for them to carry on as before with the relics of their surviving infrastructure.
My only answer so far is to trust in the bottom-up approach and for us to try to ensure that there are enough people who understand the issues to make them strong enough to sustain the revolution and ensure it delivers the promise of a rational, progressive humanitarian future for humanity as it hurtles on its current way towards overpopulation poverty and conflict and all that will bring.
