Religions make truth claims and claims to moral authority. Northern Ireland sees this much more than some parts of the world, and giving these claims an easy ride is a sure-fire way to producing bad policy and creating social problems, as well as anti-scientific lunacy (such as creationism).

November 2016 - I and my pals cycled in The Galilee, Northern Israel, to raise money for Nazareth Hospital Paediatric Department. We raised over £50,000 but we could use more! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us in 2017..?
