Alice -- who is writing the book?

Come and like this Page:

This Facebook page has been set up in anticipation for the new book currently being written - The Free Will Illusion - a book about the Naturalistic Worldview - the implications of naturalism and ideas about how to integrate the naturalistic worldview into your life - please come and have a look - the links posted are all related to research done in writing the book.

An awesome quote from Giordano Bruno:

Perhaps you pronounce this sentence against me with greater fear than I receive it

Comment by David Philip Norris on February 17, 2012 at 6:57pm

I'm still angry about what happened to Bruno. If atheists had saints, he'd be one for sure, but he's definitely a martyr for freethought.

Comment by Terry Groff on February 17, 2012 at 6:24pm

Giordano Bruno is very famous amongst those interested in life on other planets. He was a rare breed that was willing to die for the truth, and did.

Comment by leveni on February 17, 2012 at 5:56pm

Just reading the front page of Wikipedia and came across Giordano Bruno, who I had never heard of before.

Sorry, John Dublinksy - I can never remember how to spell it, so just abreviate to John D.

D'oh! My bad! ;-)

Comment by Marc Draco on February 17, 2012 at 11:31am

and some good news (long overdue) from the  BBC that the Vatican is losing some of its tax-free status. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-17072211

Comment by Marc Draco on February 17, 2012 at 11:29am

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/17078818 - this is for John D. to update his running discussion of this interesting debate. John has the full thread but I can't find it, so over to him!
