Carolyn,

 

Have met Professor Shortell at Brooklyn College; he is in the Department of Sociology, I believe? I just read an article by him, and thought, perhaps, you were aware of his work and could comment on it from point of view.

 

Here is the article, by the way:http://www.anti-naturals.org/15cst/no19/p1.htm

Greetings, Carolyn! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Thank you, Carolyn! You're gorgeous! I wish I had locs like that, but I have A.D.D. when it comes to hairstyles. Too bad I can't just wake up one day and magically have locs down my back. LOL!  Stay in touch...

Ah so not a day's excursion on the train then? ;-)

 

Perhaps you a best advised to wait in that case: I'm certain the Hitch will come to NY eventually

Uk flats = Us apartments.

 

Two peoples divided by a common language!

Re: the conference, I'm going to be a pest

 

Will one day really make all the difference in flats?  Really?   :-P

At 1:19pm on February 2, 2011, Richard Healy said…

Yup.

 

http://www.facebook.com/Zacrates66/posts/1708756691679

 

It started early in the morning.  Zac posted a blog essentially about his plane being struck by lightning and how he'd clutched his copy of The God Delusion for comfort and offered up a prayer to Richard Dawkins. 

Obviously sarcastic, right?

 

Well this brought out one Theist - Erika who messaged Zac direct to his page saying how she was mightily offended that he would compare a man Dawkins to her god, and then we were joined in the fray by Eric Ziegler (apparently I learnt later a friend of Zac's whose recently been 'turned to the dark side of Fundie Catholicism.

 

So I make a quick comment somethgin about how Christians are so credullous they though Zac was serious and this initiates an unholy row - however where they were it was 1.30am where I was it was 7am and I was getting ready to leave the house so with much terse exchanges already said (involve amongst other things evolution, creationism, the devil and Hell) I said we'd reconvene that evening.

 

So I get back from college post a few posts dismantling (especially Eric's) posts and he appers offering up a 'watchmaker analogy' - and I school him on that as well.

 

And then thigns turn Nasty.  Already Erics said Atheists talk shit and been generally rude and unpleasent but now were back to insults threats of Hell (you will burn unbelievers!!!) , I don't play nice either now I've had enough of this - and that's when it comes: the 'if I ever see you I'll beat you up' (I'm paraphrasing) but he was livid.

 

So there you go.  Push a theists buttons and the mask slips - threats of torture and violence is all they have.

 

I'm 5' 9' too! :-)  I'd say it was his nose to my chin, not a great difference but just noticeable 'cos he's such a giant to me, it was just a startling moment to realise I was the taller between us.

The Skeptic Hour
Atheism on BBS Radio


The Skeptic Hour is a radio show dedicated to helping people begin to think critically about everything. From birth we are filled with the ideas of our households and surrounding communities. Most of us never make it to the point questioning, because we are taught not to; but a few of us at some point in our lives have either a crisis of faith or something dramatic that happens in our lives that shakes the very foundation our unquestionable ideas rest on, and we suddenly start to see cracks and gaps in our way of thinking. We look through those cracks and begin to see things that were once hidden. Fear causes us to deny what we are learning, but as we continue to peak through the cracks, the fear slowly leaves, and before we know it, we've become freethinkers.

We hope you enjoy the show!
