Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.
Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk
Our mate Natalie Haynes has a piece in today's Times which name checks the flag-wavers for a new fun and upbeat kind of rationalism - Ariane Sherine, Robin Ince and... me. Crikey, I must have been letting my fundamental cynical misanthropy slip. Of course she is right that what we are trying to do - Ariane with her new book (for which incidentally, Paul the news editor and I have written a very silly kind of Dickens parody thingy), Robin with his brilliant 9 Lessons Shows (conflict of interest alert, they are benefits for the Rationalist Association, ie us) and we at New Humanist - is inject some wit and (shudder...) fun into our sceptical enquiries into the meaning of life, Christmas, belief and other mysteries of this nature we call human. Exhibit A.
Nice one, Nat.
