Atheist News Podcast Project




Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Love,

--Joe

Just sharing...

 

http://www.chron.com/news/world/article/Boy-s-miracle-cure-makes-Na...

 

"Jake's 2006 cure from the infection was deemed medically inexplicable by the Vatican, the "miracle" needed to propel a 17th century Native American, Kateri Tekakwitha, on to sainthood...." (emphasis mine)

"...gracious and grateful to the doctors who performed 29 surgeries to save his life and reconstruct his face."

 

"Jake is fully convinced, as is the Catholic Church, that the prayers his family and community offered to God through Kateri's intercession, including the placement of a Kateri relic on Jake's leg, were responsible for his survival."

 

"But rather than bad news, the doctors said the infection had stopped. "It was like a volcano that was erupting, and they opened him up and it was gone. It had stopped. It was a pretty amazing day..."

 

Obviously, miracles sometimes need a little help and the perfect opportunity before they will occur.

Former Ambassador and First African-American Woman Elected to the United States Senate Commits to Fight for the Constitutional Rights of U.S. Armed Servicemembers

Ambassador & 
Fmr. Senator Carol
Moseley Braun

"It is my pleasure to join the Advisory Board of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. By working to protect the essential liberty of belief within the uniformed services, this organization makes a patriotic contribution to our country's military. By advocating for the preservation of the separation of church and state on behalf of military men and women, the MRFF can be a voice for the most fundamental of American values. Patriotism is more than just flag-waving. It can mean fighting for the principles that make America great. It can call for sacrifice to insure that those principles are neither lost nor forgotten in the midst of conflict or chaos. It requires that we remain dedicated to the principles articulated in our Constitution and for which so many generations of Americans have given the last full measure of devotion. I look forward to assisting the
important mission of the MRFF. "

I don't understand why some people are so terrified by the fact that humans (and all other lifeforms on this planet) evolved from something simpler.  Well, I guess they feel that being created by a supernatural impossibility makes them "special." 

Go to full-size image

Just as "special" as Charles Manson, Hitler, Vlad the Impaler....or Bozo the Clown.
