FRSA etc.


Apologies for there being fewer posts. I am totally snowed under, what with beginning of term, plus getting some rather labour-intensive, but rather exciting, things sorted for Centre for Inquiry. News on that shortly.

I will, eventually, be getting back to a number of issues left hanging, such as Jesus' historicity.

God Delusion Chpt. 6 will be tomorrow.

One bit of news is that I have been elected a fellow by the Royal Society of Arts, which means I'm an FRSA. I initially threw their invitation to become a fellow in the bin, as I had little idea what the RSA was, and you have to pay £120 p.a. to belong. Then they contacted me again and I realized it was, actually, something of an honour to be invited. Their building on the Strand is rather impressive, and has wifi, a cheap bar and decent restaurant. It seems, primarily, to be a club. Karl Marx, Adam Smith and Dickens were all members.

Woo hoo! Kudos, glory, all that stuff.

Bin thing very funny. Yes it is a bit of an honour - even I know that!

Marx and Dickens members of the same club? What a fascinating thought! Maybe they swapped ideas. And could the low-life scenes in "Oliver Twist" have originated from Engels' "Condition of the Working Classes"?
