I just set up an event thingy on Facebook! Seems like a better way to keep track of who is planning on attending and who isn't.

So I'm in my first college science class that hasn't bored the hell out of me! Astronomy. So apparently ramadon and passover is a way to add days into their calenders to make them in sync. Kinda like leap year but less fun.

Heres the thing. I just finished a class on logic last week. Most of what its taught in a logic class is formal logic which is predominately Aristotelian logic and symbolic logic. Which isn't particularly useful outside of writing a long textual argument or countering on. We spent one week on informal logic dealing with fallacies which is a significant chunk of informal logic. I personally wouldn't recommend taking a class unless it was a required. I took it cause i was interested and it was required. The book I recommended covers the most useful aspects of logic that you could use in a verbal debates.

Oh, I'm getting close to finishing After God, by Mark C Taylor. Hes a professor of religion at Columbia in Chicago. Its essential A/theology, a word i think he coined. Which is an attempt to dissect or understand religion by any means necessary; theology, psychology, philosophy, biology ect. I feel its on of the most important atheist books i've ran across. I'm hesitant of recommending it though because if you don't have a pretty good understanding of various philosophers and their ideas the book seems like it would be almost impossible to understand.
