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.

Jedi joke is over! Mark 'no religion' on this year's census!

With the upcoming census on the 9th, just one more reminder to all those non-religious, agnostic, atheist people out there to be sure to mark 'no religion' on this year's census. Over 70 000 people marked Jedi as their religion on the last census.

"If you put down Jedi, you are marked no response and all you are doing is handing religion your power over yourself," says David Nicholls of Atheist Foundation of Australia.

The same goes for 'Pastafarians'. So let's stop giving more tax payer's dollars to religious organisations than they deserve!
