Greg replied to Samantha's discussion 'Atheist characters in fiction'
"Yeah, I was disappointed and dismayed to learn Card is Mormon given how well he conveys the atheist experience and point of view. I considered boycotting the rest of the series, but was unable to stick to that, as I enjoy the books too much."

Helping young kids through loss of a close grandparent

I do not believe in God -- any god. I strive to be a good atheist and person by setting an example of decency to all and service to my community. The whole "good without god" thing. In raising my 6 and 7 year old sons, I've always responded to the rare god/heaven/religion questions with as "That's what some people believe, but lots of people including me don't." That's been easy in the abstract, and I pride myself on not lying to or indoctrinating them with bogus beliefs I don't share. But my…See More

"I do respect your right to express your opinions about whatever you want to -- I was just questioning why you'd share your opinion about raising children on a site called "Think Atheist" without connecting that opinion even…"

Greg replied to Skycomet the Fallen Angel's discussion 'Corporal Punishment - Parenting? or Child Abuse? Opinions Please'
