  • "Who Killed Neal Beagley?" -- Children die when their parents brainwash them into

    through the ages.

  • "Body Count" -- The latest ploy of defenders of religion like Dinesh D'Souza is to claim that
    atheism has killed more people than religion ever has.  It just isn't so.  This article from the

  • "Counterfeiting Tradition" -- The Turkish government is funding a group of Muslim
    theologians to produce a kinder, gentler version of the "sunna," or the "way" of Muhammad,
    to produce a more moderate version of Islam.  "Counterfeiting Tradition," to appear in the
    July-August 2009 issue of The Humanist explores the history of the traditions they are
    modifying, and explains why the effort is doomed to failure.

  • "Buddhism and the Bomb" -- Secularists are soft on Buddhism.  They shouldn't be.  This
    article to appear in the Summer, 2009 issue of Secular Nation explores the role of Japanese
    Buddhism in the deaths of millions of Asians during World War II.
