Jerry Wesner replied to Ceil's discussion Please help me maintain some sanity... It just isn't true!
"To me, that's a more dangerous question.  Jesus never owned a car -- or a camel or an ass.  But a freethinker has to decide when a purchase is for function and when it's for show.  Do I need a bigger house for the family, or…"

Hi to Jerry Mesner in Albuquerque. Welcome to this great meeting place with its rational people who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
