I first read about the Brights MemeÃ‚® on Dean’s World a few weeks back and thought it a rather dumb name for an old idea. It is apparently catching fire. Kevin mentioned it last night, inspiring Steven to post on it this afternoon, and Kieran to comment earlier this evening.
I now feel compelled to set forth my take, so here goes:
Like Dean, I at least loosely fit the description. Like Steven, I think this is just a new (and I add, dumb) word for “secular humanist.” Like Kieran, I think Brights should keep quiet about all this when talking to other people.
