Over the last few years I have become involved in the secular movement.
I feel quite impassioned by the fact that some laws are in place solely to appease the religious lobby. (eg: Marriage Inequality, Euthanasia, Abortion)
I feel as though many ethical discussions that our community needs to have are held back because of irrational and unscientific ideas.
I think that generally people are not taught how to think critically and logically, which is becoming an increasingly important skill in the increasingly dynamic society in which we live, where the decisions we make today can have deep consequences for our future.
The debate between religious and secular world-views is nothing new. I have written this album firstly as an expression of my honest response to these issues.
Also, I hope to bring this essential and interesting discussion into the public discourse. This is a topic which is not so readily delved into.
I don’t claim to have all the answers or that my world view is without flaws. I just want to encourage genuine skepticism, inquiry and discussion when it comes to important issues.
I believe that no opinions or beliefs are beyond criticism, no matter how sacred they may be.
I can handle having my views scrutinised and challenged. In fact, I welcome it.
