Yes. I have been lamenting about the lack of intellectual depth in HK (though I don't speak or read Cantonese, so have only very limited insight and as such no business judging this, really), so was very pleased when I stumbled across this group. Thanks for organising!
None. I read blogs, including Dwindling in Unbelief, Language Log, xkcd, Pharyngula, Jesus and Mo, Stephen Law, and Rationally Speaking. I subscribe to Skeptic and Skeptical Inquirer (on and off), and the equivalents in Germany (Skeptiker), as well as atheist and humanist publications, plus of course The Economist.
What blogs/magazines do you read? Do you have a great book recommendation? (Mine: The Better Angels of our Nature, by Pinker - and in fact, all of his books) Do you think that religion will continue to decline and ultimately become irrelevant, or do you think it will bounce back and gain more importance? What can we do to promote rational/secular thought? How come that insights from the Enlightenment that are over two centuries old and fairly evident are still controversial and not universally adopted?
