"Makes quite a bit of sense, yes. :)
I think it's self evidently not true that religion poisons absolutely everything. I think it does poison most things to a greater or lesser extent at some level. But the important point to make is that even…"
"Absolutely! In fact, one of the first things I wanted us to discuss before we jumped into the book was whether or not we really think that religion poisons EVERYTHING (in response to the subtitle of the book). So far, it seems [to me]…"

"I like fiction, but I LOVE non-fiction...just always have! But I'm definitely open to fiction recommendations too :) Yep, no surprise that people are unreliable. I'm a high school English teacher (a detail I don't…"
"That is just so cool of you to give me all of these suggestions! I must say, I am especially drawn to How to Become A Really Good Pain in the Ass. The way you describe it reminds me of Sophie's World (one of my all time…"
