"Wow. Cultural competence, eh? Maybe they should go to a mosque or something. It's nice to think of Christianity as folklore. Your son sounds like an outstanding human. Of course, as a black and white, I could be biased :)"

"At any given moment the world is getting both better and worse.  It always has.  But it seems to me the overall trending is upward.  A friend said to me a few years back that he'd not want to bring a child into the world as it is…"

"Yes, there is hope. There is also cause for great concern and it is easy to despair of any meaningful change. The list of really serious problems that the human species is facing is quite long, and the amount of stupidity that many if not most…"

Anthony Becker replied to Anthony Becker's discussion My Rantroduction in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism
"Yes, exactly. One day I know I'll be ashamed of ever being called Baptist. But for now I'm just mad.   I'm glad I'm on a journey now and no longer on a treadmill of indoctrination."

Hi Anthony and welcome to this wonderful world of atheist truth and peace.


Common sense and science lead to atheist wisdom as you may well know; if only the religious would listen to reason, there would be no religious.
