Just finished a biography on Norman Rockwell, not that I was ever a big fan. Curious about the man. Despite being married 3 times with 3 children, he was depicted as a repressed homosexual. Also, despite some of his "religious" (pious) illustrations, he was a non-believer. Rockwell turned liberal as he got older. A very fastidious and detailed man, it took him a long time to complete a drawing. And he couldn't do it off the top of his head. He needed photographs or models. Good insight into a complex person.

For those who read ebooks, a couple of my "Atheist Musings" are available free this week at Smashwords as part of Read an Ebook Week (3/2-3/8): "Creationism vs. the Lightbulb" and "The Fix Is In." People might also be interested in some of my science fiction and fantasy on sale; check out my blog for more details.

“Simply delicious fun from start to finish” is how Kirkus Reviews described the second novel by Laury A. Egan, "The Outcast Oracle," in its starred review. Being released today by Humanist Press, "The Outcast Oracle" is about a teenage girl, but it’s a book for any adult who remembers the traumas of adolescence and the shock of discovering that religion is not all it’s cracked up to be.

An original multimedia collection of lauded humanist poetry is the latest offering from Humanist Press, the expanding publishing arm of the American Humanist Association. "Questions About God" from humanist poet Stephen Perry, being released today, is being called “. . . an excitingly different read” by the New York Journal of Books, as well as “challenging and thought-provoking,” by Midwest Book Review, concluding that “Questions About God delves into fundamental mysteries with a unique and insightful flair.” The ebook contains 25 of the author’s creative photos and photo montages, as well as his dramatic reading of a number of poems, including the 121-line title poem.

Hello all. Don't know why I hadn't seen this group before. Some of you already know me, I give all the necessary points in my profile.
So my dislike of anglo-atheist horsemen has long pushed me to read atheist ideas from other languages like Spanish and French. But I've recently been tuning in to "the end of multiculturalism" regarding the happenings in Dutch society. Contrary to North America, it seems the avid secularists are on the right-hand side of politics, and the Netherlands have decided to scrap multiculturalism, in large part due to their distaste for invading religions from the developing. One of the journalists/authors which is well known on this debate in the Netherlands is Paul Cliteur, author of The Secular Outlook: In Defense of Moral and Political Secularism.
Has anyone here heard of him or read him? I'm no fan of morality, but this author seems to keep things farther away than Humanist and Christian moral obsessions with "goodness". I've added it to my reading list... but there are several in line before this one.
I'd love to hear someone's take on it...
Or if there's anyone around here from the Netherlands who's been in tune with the secular and multiculturalism issues over there. In Canada, multiculturalism is pretty much all about religious plurality, or an "interfaith" view of society, not my cup of tea.

When in doubt, chronologically. Happy reading.
