fwd: FAMILY GUY THE 2,000-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN

Started Dec 26, 2014 0 Replies

enjoyable, sacrilegious TV, for my money.  At some point they commented in the show about how many Christians it would piss off.  Up to that point I hadn't really thought about it, .... was just…Continue

Atheist variant on Jewish Mezuzah?

Started this discussion. Last reply by jlaz Dec 24, 2014. 9 Replies

Hi -  We do have a discussion area for Jewish Atheists, and I may pose this question there also, but I thought I'd ask a broader audience for their views on a few community-related matters.  In…Continue

Pretty good song with atheist theme from 2011

I had never heard this before and searching the forums for the musician's name and a couple of other things, I didn't see evidence of discussion of it, though I'm guessing it's been discussed here or…Continue

"sk8eycat:Thanks for spelling this out from your point of view.  Since I didn't have the experience of having been invested (or pushed to invest) in the Jesus myth, it didn't fully process with me that in a sense, there's at least…"

"A pet peeve of mine has long been that following too closely is generally not prosecuted.  There is very little lower, in my view, in the area of driving, then someone who disrespects others and follows too closely.  If following too…"

"Freethinker31Thanks for the thoughts.  I can't really remember if we had a Mezuzah.  It strikes me as kind of a classy under-stated thing in some ways, but I guess at this point I'm not sure and the scrolls inside are not quoting…"

jlaz replied to jlaz's discussion Atheist variant on Jewish Mezuzah?
"Ok thanks, I'm not sure, I'll have to think it over, as to whether I want to do something like that.  A mezuzah I'm accustomed to (it's not breaking from the mainstream that much) but these would go a bit beyond that."

Pat replied to jlaz's discussion Atheist variant on Jewish Mezuzah?
"Never been one for symbols. To be honest, this strikes me as wearing an atheist pendant on a necklace to replace a Star of David, a crucifix, or something similar. Not trying to be critical, or an asshole, but what's the point? Why engage in an…"
