Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case. The world is full of injustices and atrocities that governments and the voice of faith expect us to accept, though with each passing year they grow fewer and fewer, at least one would hope. I have created this blog as a space for me to rant about all things science, politics, philosophy and religion, before it’s too late and the vessel of new atheism propelled by a growing surge in secularism solves all of the world’s problems for good.

First same-sex marriage in New York!
The first same-sex marriage too place today between two women Connie, 85, and Phyllis, 77, in New York (there's a video of the ceremony via that link). They had been together for 23 years and after recent same-sex marriage laws were enacted in the state they were finally allowed by law to be wed! Congratulation to them and I hope Australia follows suit soon with such a basic human right all same-sex couples deserve.
