"Re: the discussion between Bwambale Robert and thomas smith:   I believe that have seen the website about the school, but it would be helpful if Bwambale Robert could provide background and information about it.    I think it's…"

Graham Knight replied to Alan Millar's discussion How do we do it? in the group African Atheists
"This is the million dollar question! I think it is about trying to open up the debate, encouraging a broader discussion about religion (to move it away from fundamentalism), to expose religious fraud, to provide alternative explanations for the…"

thomas smith replied to Alan Millar's discussion How do we do it? in the group African Atheists
"I think that breaking the tie between material wealth and god is one thing to do. In my studys of peoples around the world who ever has the most stuff and or military power is assumed to have gotten their position of power because of a more…"

Mumba C Mumbi replied to Alan Millar's discussion How do we do it? in the group African Atheists
"Among many others, I think chief among the reasons for Africans backwardness in this area are poverty, ignorance, superstitious traditions and politics.   As stated above, an impoverished person, comparatively, is a disillusioned person. There…"

Alan Millar replied to Alan Millar's discussion How do we do it? in the group African Atheists

How do we do it?

How do we convince Africa - a region more dominated by religion and belief in the supernatural than perhaps any other outside the Arabian Peninsula - to embrace evidence?What can we do to sow a seed of skepticism in our spirit-poisoned soil?How do we get people to take the first step and assume there's a natural explanation, or trickery in apparent miracles?See More

Alan Millar replied to Richard's discussion Where are you from? in the group African Atheists
"Cape Town, SA. I have to say, it drives me mad how South African life revolves around religion but when I think of atheists living in other African countries it puts things in perspective. I remember visiting Ghana and seeing the endless churches,…"

Alan Millar replied to Hitman's discussion New group in Ghana in the group African Atheists
"Sounds like a really tough situation. Even tougher than here in South Africa. I think the way for us in Africa to handle the intense superstition and belief is not to go for them directly. They're too strong at the moment. I reckon that the…"
