John J Kelly replied to Lord Ainsworth's discussion What happens if science proves god's existence
"If there were such a being we wouldn't recognize it.  It would have to have the power it takes to create a universe 13.7 billion light years across. Now how would we relate to that?  We exist on a rather small planet with a thin…"

John J Kelly replied to booklover's discussion Did anyone see the guest on Colbert a few nights ago?

John J Kelly replied to V1ktor's discussion What do you expect from an atheist organization?
"Excellent answer, Kelly.  The atheist designation is a very big umbrella and I hope that open minds and being non-judgmental is an essential part of that umbrella."

John J Kelly replied to V1ktor's discussion What do you expect from an atheist organization?
"This is a forum.  You've stated your point of view, as hoped for.  Many of us are asea (crossword answer) about what to do.  Imitating religious activities won't work for everything but since we are supposed to be somewhat…"

John J Kelly replied to V1ktor's discussion What do you expect from an atheist organization?
"A church near me has a "living" manger scene at Christmas.  Since we have a semblance of Winter they use a doll for the Infant, all other characters are human or statuary.  They have a loud narration of the "story"…"

"Is this what happens when a bunch of people who should know better don't go to the polls because they're miffed at something the Democrats did?  There are other fish to fry."

John J Kelly replied to matthew greenberg's discussion Monkey Bill (TN) passes without Governor signature
