On the morning of Thursday, 7 July 2005, four Islamist home-grown terrorists detonated four bombs, three in quick succession aboard London Underground trains across the city and, later, a fourth on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. Fifty-two civilians and the four bombers were killed in the attacks, and over 700 more were injured.

Linda, one of the victims, is crippled. Her husband died because of the bombing. Her grief and trauma made her rethink "revealed" religion -- causing her to reject both religion and atheism.

Now the Scotland contact for the World Union of Deists, Linda shares her tragic story and insights in this pre-recorded segment of God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion. Although the show is pre-recorded, representatives of the World Union of Deists will be available to chat with listeners in the web-based chat room that will be open during the show.
