"The Definitive Edition (to the best of my memory) incorporates everything from the previous editions.

"Speaking of which, have you ever read any of the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series?
Now, wow! Thank you for the pointer!
Do you know Martin Gardner's amazing Annotated Alice book/books? The Definitive Edition is best."
"Take out the bloodsucking and the entire Twilight series is an overdramatized abstinence-only campaign.
Precisely. Because my bet would have been "no" -- especially while her books are still making money. Which, in retrospect, kinda means…"
"if you have them it would be awesome if you could send them to me, or show me where to get it.
I would theoretically be happy to, but I lost all my concert FLACs in a catastrophic double-hard-drive failure, and I'm still trying to find all my…"
"Oh, I totally agree that AIC wasn't "All Layne". Indeed, it was mostly Jerry as far as composition is concerned. I believe Cantrell actually wrote 2/3 of the lyrics, and essentially everything pre-Dirt (Including Jar of Flies, which…"
"Black Gives Way to Blue was a good record, but it's still weird to think about attending an "Alice in Chains" concert without Layne there. I'm torn -- I'm glad Jerry is respectful to his memory, but I sometimes wish the guys…"
"Some California stores give bags away for free, but discount one's groceries by 5 cents per bag they save through customer reuse. Another gives a raffle ticket, for a weekly drawing, per reused/reusable bag. Almost all sell reusable bags (with…"

In a Relationship
Why are you here?
Dealing with people is worthwhile, but sometimes it's comfortable just to be around people who share the same thoughts and principles one does. Here I don't have to explain why atheism is not a religion, why I'm not an atheist because of trauma, how atheists can be moral, that I don't worship Satan, and why I can be so strident about intrusion of religion into general society. Thanks for being my peeps, peeps. :-)
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
The concept of deities is illogical, unnecessary, and contrary to all observed fact. Specifically regarding Christianity, any degree of study of the Bible shows that it is a heterogeneous, internally inconsistent, and demonstrably wrong antique book.
Think Atheist Travel Network Couch Availability - Are you able to host anyone now?
I too find most social networking boring and ultimately intolerable. The only other ones I visit with some regularity are beard-related--a beard community forum and The Society of Bearded Gentlemen, using the same platform as TA. This one, unlike the others, however, allows for some stimulating discussion and the sharing, critiquing, etc. of creative work.
Hey Joshua. Welcome to TA.
If you need anything, don't hesitate to drop me an email.
I hope you find what you are looking for here....if you are looking for anything at all.
It's really a great community. Glad to have you aboard.
