Best wishes and a Happy New Year / Happy Monkey to all of my atheist friends :-).


My wish for this year is that all of our atheist communities around the world continue their steady consolidation and growth.


This is a huge achievement for a community which holds no beliefs in common and is simply getting together on the grounds that we lack a belief in gods.


We're not sheep and so our biggest challenge will be to learn to not only accept and tolerate our differences but embrace them and respect each other for them, where we can and for the most part.


Dogmatism is our biggest enemy whether it be the dogmatism of authoritarianism, religiosity or political correctness. Extremism and terrorism are partners in crime with dogmatism.


An awareness and understanding of dogmatism and how it works will hopefully enlighten us so that we can overcome the challenges we face in uniting disparity and can work together to shine the light of reason on the world.


Wishing everyone a wonderful and successful new year!
