To Be Confirmed

Ayaan Hirsi Ali at AAI 07

Posted on: July 4, 2009

OK so this happened a couple of years ago now but Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s talk at Atheists Alliance International in 2007 truly is an inspiration to anyone trying to cross the divide from faith to reason and is as relevant now as it was then.

Here is a quote from the speech below, I hope it attracts your interest to take the time to listen to it all.

“No God, no religious text, no organised system of faith is better at dictating right and wrong than that compass we are born with in our heads, the instincts that are coded in our genes. I’ve seen much good come from man but very little from God. If I must place my faith somewhere then I choose to place it in reason and thank God (!) I have the freedom to choose.”
