There have been plenty of discussions trying to show how religion is right or wrong, true or false, good or bad etc. I think most of these have missed an important point. Religion has actually played…Continue

Atheism is For Adults!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bill Dec 24, 2010. 47 Replies

Atheism is a more adult world view than theism. Adults, we would hope, would talk to each other with reason and respect; of course in the real world it rarely works like that. However, in the real…Continue

Agreed! I absolutely love this astronomy class. Next time that I live somewhere with less light pollution, I am definitely getting a telescope!

I don't think you will find it at your local library. It is only available on Amazon and as a download on Smashwords for now.

It's good to hear from you again Bill. Yup, I'm the same person you remember from Sam Harris's board. I haven't been there in forever -- kinda got tired of debating people who would neither use nor listen to logic. It's just tiresome to engage in a debate using logic vs. a person whose arguments attempt to sound logical, but which in reality are based on something else entirely. That and I did another tour in Iraq. (Or maybe two more tours-- I can't remember specifically when I was on Harris's board -- '07? ' 08?)

In any event, thanks for your note. As should be apparent, I'm new to this forum. But hopefully it will prove to be a more enriching experience than some of my past fruitless debates.

Keep in touch and write whenever you care to.

Best,
Spence
