The monthly meeting of the Brighton & Hove Humanist Society last night enjoyed a talk by a Politics & Philosophy student of Sussex University. The title was "The Future of Belief". Like many of us he believed that the Church of England was in irreversible decline but that the intolerant, primitive aspects of Islam was a threat that couldn't be ignored. One of the more encouraging points he made was that on university campus the proportion of students who took any interest in religion was probably under 1%.
