Wondering if anyone has read a bit of John Burroughs (Accepting the Universe; Light of Day; Leaf and Tendril, etc.)? I'm teaching a course in environmental ethics and find Burroughs a useful bridge for theists to (cautiously) cross over to non-theism. His scientific/naturalistic/philosophical influence on Muir, Roosevelt and classrooms full of schoolchildren warrants his "resurrection!"

@Sydni: Another good book to add to my list. Thanks.

@Dallas: TSD is pretty economic, but they way Klein writes she makes it easy to follow. It definitely is giving me a different perspective on America's involvement in the world. Especially about things that are not covered in the news or that are just so filtered that the original content is virtually lost.

Dorothy Fontana, story editor for Star Trek, once told me that screenwriters envy prose writers for that. I can write 3 words: "The world ended." To do that on screen costs millions of dollars.

@IMAOZI: SF and fantasy readers are also welcome at the Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists group.

Hehe, well your imagination doesn't have a budget! If money was no object, I bet movies would be a ton better. I know a lot of movies spend millions of dollars on production, but if they could spend more, I'm sure they would. And these days, a million bucks doesn't go far.

I usually read Sci-Fi but I did read The DaVinci Code and saw the movie. I was disappointed with the movie though. My imagination is always better that the directors.

Ewww, sorry there, IMAOZI, but I tried Dan Brown and didn't care for his writing style at all. Too academic, I thought. I didn't like the movie, The DaVinci Code either.

I am reading "Angels & Demons"
