What is atheism? Speaking yesterday at Maynooth University Diversity Week, I dispelled five myths about atheism: atheism is not a religion, atheism does not require faith, atheists don’t have to disprove gods, we don’t need religion for morality, and we don’t want to ban religion.
I also covered our campaigns for separation of church and state in Ireland and internationally. And Ashling O’Brien explained what Atheist Ireland does and how you can help us to build an ethical secular State. The talk was introduced by Chris Gueret, Maynooth University Pastoral Care Co-Ordinator.
