    Yes, the freedom of speech has two sides. On the one, you can hear something you’d never want to hear (for me, it’s sexist remarks, and here where I live they are much more welcomed than anti-religious […]

    Arranged marriages, rape and blocking of birth control and abortion are all matters that Christianity and Islam have much to say about and none of it in our favor

    And there are still many women poisoned with all […]

    Yes, there is a huge pressure in the patriarchal culture (but many women here will say that there’s not and they have choices – just like I used to say). But for me the most important was the will of […]

    I have Why I Am Not A Muslim by Ibn Warraq on my phone and have just read the chapter Women And Islam. Honestly I feel saddened after the reading and also ashamed of myself in the past, when I supported the i […]

    Wow. I’ll search it later ’cause the link really doesn’t work.

    But if it’s simple it would be fun to do.

    I’m in the process of reading The Selfish Gene, and I can surely say that it’s very interesting. But the point is that I have to read it only at morning, otherwise I find it difficult to understand. I remember o […]

    Wow, so tempting, really. I can agree to Marco!

    I didn’t read The Selfish Gene yet but I planned to do it.

    And of course I’m very interested in all that involves women. My disappointment in […]

    Thank you, I meant that I don’t understand at once but I do it later. It’s like solving a problem 🙂

    But the question I have: what would you advice to read next? I have common knowledge about evolution […]

  • Milva commented on the post, BOOK CLUB 11 months ago

    Sometimes I read books on evolutionary biology. This time it was “The Blind Watchmaker” by Richard Dawkins, and I have to say, there are still some things I don’t understand at once. But it’s very interesting. I […]

    Thank you.

    I hope there will be more and more people rejecting their religions and choosing atheism together with humanism. And they all find support.

    I’m glad for you. I myself was blinded by Islamic religion being 20 years old, and I’ve spent 12 years of my life sitting at home and refusing from even those rights I could have.

    So I’m very glad […]

    I am depressed, but I don’t give up. You’ll never make me do it.

    Sometimes I feel bitterness. I remember everything good that religion meant to me, and I even think that I’d better stay on that way. But then I every time realize that it’s weakness to wish to be blinded. It’s like wishing to be an alcoholic.
    There’s still something good. Somewhere. It’s not related to any gods. And once I’ll find it.

    Thanks to the book “God Delusion” I found my way to atheism. You know when you try to recover from religion somebody or something must help at some moments. So Richard Dawkins and his book helped me.
