Go to: Dawkins Foundation: Innovating for a Secular World. A Call to Action by Sean Faircloth, Madison, WI

This is Sean. This video offers specific action steps -- for you. Here's my question: Will you take action? Will you look at the list of action steps and help? Right now. Make suggestions. Be creative. We can achieve´╗┐ these goals if we organize now and collaborate. Anonymous people who make illogical or false statements may get a response. I quite publicly identify myself. I find the intellectual level of internet discourse is degraded by the temptation to engage in anonymous screeching that people would hesitate to offer if they identified themselves. I say come out come out -- as I have. I stand by my words by name, and take all comers. When, and if, I have time, I will confront anonymous illogical people.

So back to my question: Will people help with specific action steps, like those I describe in the video? I stand ready to debate and discuss HOW we move forward, but the discussion should be about action. Action now. Those who take action are the people who will create a secular society.

adiroth. I suggest that we reject dirty tactics and engage in clean tactics which, in the long run, will be more effective. We should organize, and we should tell the truth -- persuasively.

ANTIcarrot. Your comment was filled with vitriol and devoid of substance. You accused me of lying. Would you say that to my face? Let me know your name and address. I'd be happy to discuss it with you in person. I never asserted any second coming so don't put those words in my mouth. I asserted that a powerful Kentucky politician would not gather such a crowd as did Richard Dawkins. That's true. Of course there is public notice of Dawkins coming to a community but, as I correctly asserted, we do not have an advance team like a major politician would, nor do we do paid advertising. All true. Your comment about some hypothetical politician going to a built-in crowd at a mega-church is utterly unrelated to what crowd the person can draw on their own. So another non sequitur. And were we supposed to be impressed by your calculation of the population of Kentucky? Another non sequitur. My assertion is that Richard Dawkins, a man with class and strong reasoning, draws a big crowd, and an enthusiastic crowd. This ability is highly unusual. Such crowds can be encouraged to organize for change to overcome strong religious forces. Or, on the other hand, people can sit at their computers and make illogical and snide comments that contribute nothing whatsoever to moving us toward a more rational society. I hope most people will choose the former not the latter.

I very much appreciate the review. Chapter Nine and Ten of my book offer a specific plan regarding a Secular America with a specific Vision. Here is a video summary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTCGx6M4K-Y
