Jerry Wesner replied to Deidre's discussion What do you think about Deism?
"Perhaps on the road to my current beliefs I passed through deism, though I didn't call it that.  I was both clinging to and letting go of my life-long beliefs, and god as creator but not manipulator or savior was more tenable than anything…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Irving Larson's discussion Where did morals come from?
"Here's your problem: "Because, if there is no moral law giver, there is no moral law."  This is the same as saying "If somebody does a good thing on purpose, there must be a god."  It's false.  Each…"

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.
