At long last, the very first secular book has come out from the printing press in Manila, Philippines. Soft launching is today, Good Friday for the Roman Catholics all over the world, a symbol of death for them, while it is a symbol of love and education for us in HAPI (Humanist Alliance Philippines, International).
This book took about 6 years to make, with bittersweet memories, headaches and sleepless nights. We are lucky to have found a better personnel this time in HAPI, who made this book a reality. A long and grueling collaborative effort, with down to earth leadership, we finally did it.
With over 70 different journeys, from tearjerker to something serious and noble : from being religious to agnosticism and finally atheism, and to make it better, we call it humanism, as an act of love to our fellowmen in the Philippines.
It is only available via HAPI based in the Philippines for now, at PHP 300 equivalent to $ 6 USD.
The profits, if any, will be utilized to buy more prints of this book to be donated to local libraries of schools and universities.
Education is our route in combating religiosity in the Philippines and for exponential growth.
My legacy will continue, I can die anytime.
I am not afraid.
