Atheist Bible Study #3

"I always ask why Noah didn't land on Mt. Everest, instead of the relatively low Mt. Ararat. Still haven't gotten an answer. Oh, BTW, someone did the math, and Methuselah probably would have drowned in the flood."

"I wish I could have seen Simon Magus in his prime; from what I read, it sounds like he put on a good show. Plus, he rescued a woman from a brothel, something Jesus never did. By the time Jesus supposedly lived, cities and states viewed religious…"

Just a couple of weeks ago, my Dad went to pick up his eye drops for glaucoma, and instead of the $4. he expected, he was told the tiny bottle would cost $72. Almost 20 years ago he retired from Caterpillar Tractor Co, and thought he had health coverage for life. Nope. He's reached his lifetime max, so now all he has is Medicare, which will cover 80% of allowable cost. So, 20+ % of the next hospitalization bill will undoubtedly cost thousands of dollars.

Greetings, Juliet! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus and its thousands of good friends.

Do join groups like the busy discussion group “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ).
