    Words cannot express just what a moron, but a dangerous moron, Bush is. They can’t but we’ll all have a good go anyway. History will look back on his time in office and question why oh why he wasn’t unceremoniously ejected from the nearest door with a boot up his arse a long time ago.

    I think the Norwegian Humanist Association are merely articulating what most Humanists worldwide are thinking. The world in the 21st century needs clear headed, rational and compassionate leadership, something the gentleman in question clearly fails to provide in every respect. However that isn’t really what this post is all about. Humanists are fairly confident that a large minority perhaps even a majority of people in Britain share their basic philosophy. So why does membership of the BHA keep bumping along at a few thousand. I looked on the Norwegian Humanists Web Site (naturally there is a parallel site in English) and was intrigued to see a graph of their membership levels from 1956 to 2005. It shows that for the first 20 years membership stayed fairly constant at two or three thousand. Since the late 70s though it has rocketed to almost 70000 in a population of 4.6 million. Shouldn’t we be asking how and why? By the way I got the population figure from the CIA factbook web site
    We might not like the boss but they do have some brilliant web sites!

    Thanks David, but your CIA URL leads nowhere, though it’s correct. Try this link to the CIA instead.
