Update 9th April 2017: The ‘on camera’ interview with Ahlulbayt TV lasted 90 minutes. I spoke about many of the points raised by the twenty supporters/members of Atheism UK who emailed me or left comments on this post. Thanks all, for your comments. If any ex-Muslims would like to give their views about the failures of organised religion, let me know and I’ll put you in contact with Ahlulbayt. The documentary will be aired on Sky 831 channel during Ramadan (27th May – 25th June 2017) – I’ll add the precise date when known.
Atheism UK will be interviewed by the Islamic channel Ahlulbayt TV (Sky 831 channel) this Wednesday morning (22nd March 2017).
I’d be interested in any comments (today or tomorrow, 20-21st March) from Atheism UK members and supporters about “What are the failures of organised religion?”
I will discuss their documentary looking at rising rates of Atheism in the UK. The aim of this documentary is to explore the growing areligious trend in the UK. Ahlulbayt TV wishes to look at the reasons why more and more people are disassociating with religion in general, be it from a theological/philosophical point of view or as a result of organised religion and its various flaws.
Ahlulbayt TV say:
“They want to look at some of the more prominent atheistic ideals or tenets (for want of a better word), for example the scientific method, the theory of evolution, Multiverse theory, the problem of evil etc. They wish to highlight how and why such understandings have overtaken what were once accepted understandings of the world around us.”
They want to look at how changing demographics are shaping or affecting relations between communities with a look at how best we can cooperate and work together.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or (preferably) leave a reply (today or tomorrow) at the bottom of this post about what you think are the failings of organised religion. But keep your comments short! Thanks.
President, Atheism UK
