1. Daniel Honan: Are Science and Religion Compatible?
“George Church, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School argues that science relies on a certain kind of faith. “It’s kind of an act of faith that science is a good thing,” he says. And yet, the moral underpinning of science is something we may not be able to rely upon millions of years from now.”

2. Michael True: Is Religion on its Way Out?
“Once we agree that one can be “spiritual” without being “religious,” the conversation deepens. Their reflections are often rich in texture and detail. Even when we differ on specific issues, I found their experience surprisingly complementary to my own… Although surveys indicate that 99 percent of Americans believe in God, seldom do they indicate which One they subscribe to.”

3. Irish Times:
Our 256,000 (and Counting) Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and Non-Religious

“There are more agnostics, humanists, atheists and non-religious in Ireland than there are Church of Ireland members, Presbyterians, Orthodox Christians and Methodists combined. A further 70,000 opted not to answer the religion question. Coming in the wake of the Murphy and Ryan reports, the 2011 census results are expected to record a further increase in this disparate but essentially non-religious group.”
