We talked today about the implications of the recent UN Human Rights Council’s resolution against “religious defamation” (link), his interview with Douglas Adams (link), the “Treaty Of Tripoli” (link), how he and his Jewish wife raise their ten-year old atheist daughter, why he likes the term “atheist” versus terms like “secular humanist”, the amazing story of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, aka “The Most Hated Woman In America” who was the founder of American Atheists, and how lucky I am living in a country like Australia where you can say “the A-word” and not get shunned from polite society.
