Let us think the unthinkable, let us do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.

Welcome to Effing the Ineffable: a site for the much-needed promotion of a rationalist, religion-free viewpoint. I hope to present herein a positive alternative to religion – suggestions as to how we can live without religious belief while still living good, moral lives and having a damn good time.
However, I recognise that this won’t always be possible – there are some (well, many) religious excesses that simply can’t go unremarked, and the more remarked they are, the better people will know why we need to stop them. So forgive me if I sometimes marvel at the misguidedness (and malice) with which some poor, benighted souls regard the world.
Anyway, whatever your worldview, welcome to Effing The Ineffable, and I hope you find it a useful contribution to the rationalist blogosphere.
