Hello again everyone,

For those of you that were interested or recently started The Greatest Show on Earth, by Richard Dawkins, I figured we would start a discussion on it. Any one that wants to join in and start the read is more than welcome, as well as those who have already read it. (I'm sure Nelson will have some insight for us!)

 

Let me know what you think! Thanks everyone!

 

-Jason!

"Irrationality usually trumps reason." This is a very sad reality. I'm fresh out of Christianity (literally about three weeks), and that's exactly where I was, trumping reason with my 'irrationality in the hole.' I must say that I was somewhat skeptical of religion most of my life. But I was quick to believe what a pastor told me was true because they were articulate and scholarly and must know what they're talking about.  Right?  NO!  I'm so glad to have finally woken from my 'jesus zombie' state and think for myself.  After researching evolution and approaching it with a real open mind (previous times I've approached evolution with an 'open mind,' but my mind was not truly 'open,' I simply was not thinking rationally.  I was in the brainwashed mode of only looking for information that 'proved' god exists.  Which I found.  On sites like firstbaptistchurch.org, or seethelight.com.  The information is all a lie and is not credible.  Period.

 

I must read this book though, it will be on my list to read, and will be read very soon.

 

Thanks guys!

Hi guys! Hello and sorry to have disappeared before the discussion started. My schedule was overwhelming. Looking forward to catching up on reading both the book and the discussion here.
