Links to Threads Discussing and Compiling Links on Various Topics
#1
A couple of members have pointed out that there is a need for an organized collection of links to various resources/discussions/guidelines. A good first step in organizing such a database of links by topic would be to list the threads on these forums where these links are being compiled. Here they are, in no particular order:

Secular philanthropy: List of charities: http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Secular-phila...-charities

Links on Pseudoscience and Superstition: http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Links-on-Pseu...perstition

Sathya Sai Baba Hall of Shame: http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Sathya-Sai-Ba...l-of-Shame

Carvaka - Research - References: http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Carvaka-Research-References

Other threads worthwhile to resume and revisit regularly are:

Podcast recommendations : http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Podcast-recommendations

Image quote suggestions from Indian freethinkers: http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Image-Quotes-...eethinkers

'Dump threads':

Freethought news (current affairs issues concerning freethought promotion) : http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Freethought-NEWS-Dump-Thread (It maybe a good idea to have a more readily retrievable archive here besides the readily bumped down Fb threads.)

Javed Akhtar : http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Dump-Thread-J...ar-s-stuff
Amartya Sen : http://nirmukta.net/Thread-Dump-Thread-A...en-s-stuff

Here are some more recent threads/post which compile links functioning as 101's for their respective topics. This thread originally intended as a landing page of sorts for such links can serve as a readily retrievable location to point to for resources to bring up to speed those who maybe unfamiliar with these commonly encountered topics.

Gender bias and intersectional marginalization : http://nirmukta.net/Thread-split-moderat...32#pid6632

Caste discrimination and its origins in the varna system : http://nirmukta.net/Thread-split-Nationa...30#pid6430
