Yes, I guess I missed ...

... the heroic atheists in Burma: Religion as a force for good. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

But I have heard that Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett and Christopher Hitchens are on their way there to lead some more demonstrations. I have heard that, haven't I?

  1. Hi Frank,

    Thanks for posting this, and to Dave Lull for finding the article. Point made.

    I am affected by the struggle in Burma/Myanmar. Daily, I look to Luisetta Mudie's blog posts at Radio Free Asia Unplugged.

    Scrolling leads to startling video, and following some of her links, leads to blogposts from there such as here: The Dark Hours (as you know), an excerpt:

    I'll let you know when I've been shot. (I'll ask someone before I die to blog about it. If it was an instant death, I'll come to my sister in my dream and tell her to blog about it, or I won't rest in peace)

    E. Ethelbert Miller has been blogging, poetically at his E-Notes here: And we once called it BURMA . . .

    and here: What would the Buddha do?

    On the Dawkins/Dennett/Hitchens train of thought, it seems so small at this time to ask what would Darwin do?
