You are a very brave person, and I am proud to have you as a friend!

I'm curious; is Botswana a safe place for you and your friends?  I have heard good things about that nation, but it may just be propaganda. 

Be careful, and please stay in touch with all of us at A/N when you can.

Michael, thank you for the friendship. I see you live in Uganda. I read about what happens there, frequently. My heart goes out to you. Be strong. Be safe. I hope we offer some peace and friendship to you, even if it is only via the internet.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus,
where the good, rational people of this world strive to make the world a better place. We challenge, criticise, redicule, question and debunk dogma and promote science and reason.
By the way, what happened to the great university in Uganda called Makerere University?
Is it still the great African seat of learning that it used to be?

Secular Nation can be accessed at www.AtheistAlliance.org. The website was recently updated and has some bugs/glitches, so I'd like to think they're all worked out.

do you mean you need a DVD player or just access to atheist DVD material?

Thanks for the email through GLBTQ Atheists, but the article is in French, which I cannot read. But good for you anyhow! Thanks for your support. You should put the things you talked about in your blog.

At 2:08am on 6 April 2009, Micheal said… Doctor, Is there a possibility of working together to develop the Atheistic Values in Africa? Do you have some ideas? What would you like to see happening in Africa? I hope we can discuss.

Dear Micheal
Of course, I would like to have everyone in the world, Africa included, cleared of irrational god-belief.
Unfortunately at the moment, indoctrinated believers (some of them dangerous) greatly outnumber non-believers (all of them harmless).
It may be centuries, perhaps never, before the world is cleared of such stupid beliefs.
Hopes of success need to start with children, protecting these innocents from the dogmas of parents, schools and churches/mosques etc. Schools should opened and run by atheists, not by missionaries.
Children must be taught by the right teachers.

I wish you well, but I can do nothing to help because I am beyond retirement age---just too elderly.
It will be up to a new generation--a younger generation of atheist enthusiasts-- to start trying to save the world from this mass religious nonsense.

Good luck to you and all,

Terence Meaden

Got your message re: veganism. I would say that it's more important that the animals are treated ethically, than what you put on your plate. If there isn't an alternative, you could just try to make the best decisions about food available to you.

In most western nations, there is a lot of choice and the intensive factory farms are a real problem. Without making too many assumptions, I would guess that the animal products in your food are generally produced in small, fairly ethical farms, and that it would be really expensive if at all possible to find alternatives like soy products.

I am vegan for ethical reasons, but you have to be realistic. For example, if I was sick and the medicine was based on animal products, i would take it, because health is more important than ethics.

I would say that it's a case-by-case situation, and in your case, animal products are probably nowhere near as terribly produced.

Ethics is about the production of food, morals is about the consumption of food. Just make the best decisions you can and all will be fine.
