The Northwest Indiana meeting was pretty cool. And on the drive back i was trying to figure out why found it so enjoyable. Because they didn't do anything beyond other other groups I've visited. And then I figured it out, there were two married couples in the group. I think thats been the first time I've seen married people at a group.
Anyway, you can find this group at. http://www.meetup.com/Atheist-Community-of-Northwest-Indiana/calend...
Its a bit of a hike, but its worth it.

Oh I just finished.
40 Days and 40 Nights: Darwin, Intelligent Design, God, Oxycontin®, and Other Oddities on Trial in Pennsylvania
Its about the dover trial. It has some absolutely historical court transcripts. The book was apparently written by Darwin's great grandson. I didn't know much about the trial, out side of news articles before this.

And for the non-reader types there is supposed to be a documentary made by the same guy out there also.

Yeah, I donno about that one. I'm not sure I trust anyone writing with a pen name. My only issue with the "god hates you book" besides most of the stories already being kinda boring, is that the guy seems to have published it with out an editor. Which is pretty shady. There's not really any grammatical mistakes, just problems with how clunky the flow of words are once in a while. But it functions very well in order to get all the stories down. Oddly enough, I was talking to a friend about this, I was familiar with all the bible stories, except one, and this book was the first time I heard them in chronological order all at once.

I've been looking to read that one. It seemed interesting enough. I was directed to that one from Amazon from the book "Does God Get Diahrrea?".

Hey, if anybody is looking to read the bible, but doesn't want to drill through 1000s of pages I recommend "God Hates you Hate him back"
The book is terribly over priced on amazon. But the kindle version is around 7 bucks. Its kinda like bible cliff notes for non-believers. I Just finished it today.
