"I think that even though they probably learned it from the slavers, once brainwashed, it became something to look to for hope when they had nothing else. I mean, just consider the song "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." It could be…"
"Yeah, I think a lot more people "go through the motions" than actually are willing to admit it. I sort of understand, looking back at history, why black churches would be so fervent about the Jesus stuff. But wasn't…"
"First of all, I wouldn't be having the discussion so late that the kids would already be of school-going age. Seeing as how she and I have just started dating, I think I've got some time before I have to have that discussion. …"
"I'm pretty sure the guy and his wife have been together for a number of years. On acceptance, I think getting them to accept us is probably the first step, though I certainly do enjoy getting believers riled up on a regular basis. I…"
"I've been "out" as an atheist for my entire adult life, and for the most part I've been left alone about it. Certain people I've come across (such as one who's a 7th Day Adventist and always thinks he's…"

"I don't like the phrase "far from." Condoms' effectiveness at preventing disease, as a percentage, is somewhere in the high 80s to mid 90s. Preventing pregnancy, it's about 98 or 99% effective when combined with…"
"I say, don't be afraid to be who you are. Who cares if it causes controversy? If you're an atheist, you're an atheist. You don't have to be some outspoken firebrand (like me =P) to be open about your beliefs, but you should be…"
""Interesting" is a relative term. On the rare occasions that I've been able to find a date, it's been interesting. I just have trouble finding atheist women in my area who are single and have enough in common with me to make…"
"There is always another choice. "The only thing in life you have to do, is that you have to be born, and at some point, you have to die." - Lou Tice. Everything else is a consequence of the choices you make, and nothing more. If you really…"
