"I think there does need to be a balance. Just think of all the evengelistic (fundies in general) types running around out there spouting damnation, creationism/ID, pushing their religion into every aspect they can. While I…"
"I haven't found any specific atheist literature BUT I did find a young children's book on evolution at the Ft Benning PX. To be honest, the book section is not a frequent stop for me at the PX becaues you also find an extreme conservative…"
"What the heck. I'd be willing to be adopted by a 30 year old Christian millionaire sex starved model, who owns a bar on a golf course, insists that I hunt and fish all the time, is a gourmet chef, and lets me dominate the TV's remote…"
"Not likely. You would probably end up with a religious pamplet, bible, or WWJD bracelet. I do wonder if the adoption process backfires any on them. You know, some poor Christian adopts an Atheist, but after repeated back and…"
"I'd hatched up the notion of asking for The Magic of Reality Richard Dawkins science book for kids. Kind of innocuous sounding until you read it. . . just to see if they'll agree to get it? I'll let you know…"

"I spoke with Mr. Torpy on the phone the yesterday and had a small discussion about seeing what's on the shelves at the various exchanges and asking the workers work there if they had any Atheist/Humanist literature. It basically comes…"
"You know, I noticed the same thing. . .I haven't stopped by the book section in the Ft Wood exchange since I got my kindle, but before that I had the same experience.

"11:00 PM had my first bout of nausea; Rx took care of it. I feel wonderful. Absolutely no pain, I can't finish a sentence or remember words so Cary, Laura and Laurie did their best to understand what I am trying to convey. I usually get enough…"

"The medical profession seems to have improved in some areas at least. Personally I think some of that is due to the higher level of education of society as a whole. We know too much to put up with bad treatment now. I saw a documentary last year…"
"Thanks. Now I have "Glory of Love" stuck in my head. ^^;
I'm not sure if I could get used to eating bugs. It's like... if they're mudbugs or sea-bugs, that's one thing, but it's hard to imagine them tasting good…"
