Boy Scout of America: Evil in more ways than one

Posted on February 2, 2009 at 4:59pm 1 Comment

"Boy Scouts councils across the country have widely logged or sold prime woodlands to turn quick profits, sometimes on lands that were bequeathed to the Boy Scouts by donors intent on preserving the lands for outdoor recreation, according to an investigation by Hearst Newspapers."

He said "and non-believers". He said "restore science". And he listed "curiosity" among the core values. A good start.

Fraternizing with the Enemy

In the movie Serenity, the preacher Shepherd Book asks the doubter Captain Reynolds:



"Why when I talk about faith, do you always assume I'm talking about God? "



I met a pair of singers recently who pulled a bait-and-switch on me, with the result that for the first time in my life, I have some sense of the positive value of faith.

That's interesting. In fact, any archeological digging is interesting. It's all detective work really. i.e. evaluating what you can from the clues available. Tell me how you got on when you return from digging in Mexico this year. And thanks too for joining ORIGINS.

Hi Mr. "Shoe"
In archeology I have come to specialise in the Neolithic and Bronze Ages of 'anywhere in the world', but I know most about the megalithic period in Europe. In England this means the great sites of Avebury and Stonehenge which are both quite near where I live. I have a web site about these monuments
www.stonehenge-avebury.net/megaframes. html.

If you put the one word 'Stonehenge' into google, the site appears on the first page. I am also doing Neolithic cave research in Sardinia in the summer (ditto if you google for Avebury). As for excavations, I have done a lot of Roman and Iron Age work in Oxfordshire and some Roman work in Wiltshire which means much tough and patient digging. Hands-on digging is always very exciting as you would well know. Tell me about your digging.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus. Be sure to check out the Groups page to find like-minded people. And don't be shy about the "About Me" section. That's how we'll get to know you.

BTW, I've started three groups here: Ars Poetica, Lovers of Shakespeare, and All Things Chthonic. Please check them out and join if you are interested.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus, join groups, and help and profit from the discussions.
No doctrines here, no dogma. Just good rational debate. e.g. try visiting the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humankind, Darwin..." for sociable discussion and good writing. Terry Meaden (Oxford)
