I posted this on another forum here, but I thought I would improve my exposure:

If you were to give ONE book to a belier in an attempt to get them to think (not convert or change in any way...but to THINK), what book would it be?

I thought of the following as good candidates:
The Demon Haunted World
Godless
The God Delusion

...but ANY book that you feel might be helpful...what would it be?

Looking forward to the replies.

Steve

so far, nobody has stated what they are bringing. FLASH supplies the basics. I like homemade baked mac and cheese. but it is entirely up to you. Thanks and I'll see you Sat.

RE: Food to bring for 19 Dec Solstice Party?

Just curious - what is the most needed in terms of extra food? I'm most likely planning on baking, but will do something different if we have a lot of sweet snacks planned already.

Robert Ingersoll’s Christmas



If I had the power to produce exactly what I want for Christmas,

-I would have all the nobility crop their titles and give their lands back to the people

I would have the Pope throw away his tiara, take off his sacred vestments, and admit that he is NOT acting for God - is NOT infallible - but is just an ordinary Italian.
I would have all the cardinals, archbishops, bishops, priests and clergymen admit that they know Nothing about theology, Nothing about hell or heaven, Nothing about the destiny of the human race, Nothing about devils or ghosts, gods or angels-I would have all the professors in colleges, all the teachers in schools of every kind, including those in Sunday schools, agree that they would teach only what they know, that they would NOT palm off guesses as demonstrated truths.
I would have them tell all their "flocks" to THINK for themselves, to be manly Men and womanly Women, and to do all in their power to Increase the sum of Human Happiness.
-I would like to see all the politicians changed to statesmen, - to men who long to make their country Great and Free, - to men who care more for public good than private gain - men who long to be of use.
-I would like to see all the editors of papers and magazines agree to print the truth and nothing but the truth, to avoid all slander and misrepresentation, and let the private affairs of the people alone.
-I would like to see drunkenness and prohibition both abolished.
-I would like to see corporal punishment done away with in every home, in every school, in every asylum, reformatory, and prison. Cruelty hardens and degrades, Kindness reforms and ennobles.
-I would like to see the millionaires unite and form a trust for the public good.
-I would like to see a fair division of profits between capital and labor, so that the toiler could save enough to mingle a little June with the December of his life.
-I would like to see an international court established in which to settle disputes between nations, so that armies could be disbanded and the great navies allowed to rust and rot in perfect peace.
-I would like to see the whole world Free - Free from injustice - Free from Superstition.


This will do for this Christmas; next Christmas I MAY Want More!

Folks,

I'm going to try and run for Congress again. This time, I'm hoping to
get on the ballot. We need to collect a minimum of 4,600 signatures,
probably closer to 6,900 in order to withstand challenges from the
Democrats. That means we need money to print brochures, petition
forms, pay for gasoline to get around, pay for the domains for the
websites (coming due again in March). We need have those petitions
signed and turned in by the end of March if we hope to get an atheist
on the ballot.

Go to http://www.luzietti.com/ and select donate to help the campaign
get off the ground.

Sincerely,

Marc Luzietti

P.S. Spread the word!
