Tara replied to Christine's discussion What to do with religious story books?
"I agree with you, Joan: showing children all the alternative views of life is the best way to encourage them to think for themselves. I am definitely going remember The Magic of Reality, thanks for that : ) The problem in this case is that the…"

Tara replied to Christine's discussion What to do with religious story books?
"As for enabling the doctrination process, I honestly doubt a children's book could do anything to your niece that her parents and/or pastor haven't already done to her. If her family is Born Again, I'm sure they're much milder…"

Tara replied to Michael Penn's discussion ARE YOU A TRUE ATHEIST?
"Well as you pointed out, the definitive word "atheist" simply means without god/gods. Period. In this strict sense, it does not specify the various conjectural cultural beliefs (auras, reincarnation, zombies) at all. I would say that,…"

Tara replied to javaknowledge's discussion No religious person will answer the question so can anyone tell me?
"If he was indeed a real person, Jesus would have lived and died as a Jew. The movement that he started--those that believed he was the son of Yahweh and not just another anti-establishment rebel--eventually came to be known as Christianity. The word…"

Tara commented on Meredith Tarkington's blog post Trying to explain my atheism to my grandparents...
"I was raised by my grandparents and a very religious aunt, so I definitely empathize with your relationships.  In my family, I also had some arguments with my grandmother and aunt; looking back one of the reasons I never made any headway with…"

Tara replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion Darwin's proposal that life may have started 'in some warm little pond' may yet be right in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Interesting article, thanks for posting. It makes a lot of sense...I still remember my high school science book stating that anaerobic bacteria are our planet's oldest known inhabitants and that today they are limited to the few highly acidic…"

Tara replied to Steph S.'s discussion Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking in the group INTJ
"Haha, thanks. I do like some clubs, but they are the more laid back ones. A friend of mine plays in a local band and I go to their gigs whenever I have the chance. But, yeah, I usually don't stay that long...the longer I stay the drunker people…"

Tara replied to Steph S.'s discussion Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking in the group INTJ
"I'm reading this book right now and it seriously feels like Susan Cain wrote this book especially for me. Some of the stories she describes are taken almost verbatim from my own life. Like Tiffany Liao, I loved to read all the time and…"

"Thanks! : )"

Tara commented on Ian's group INTJ
"Hi there, I'm a new member. I've taken a few versions of the Myers-Briggs test (including the version offered here) and I always end up as INTJ."

Tara replied to Richard Haynes's discussion NEED YOUR INPUT: Social Networking Buttons
"I have to agree here. Even though X is associated with many different things, when I read "X us" I get the impression of "X us out" (as in rub us out).   Brother Richard, I know you pointed out several positive uses of the…"

Tara replied to J. A.'s discussion The Morality of My Children at Risk in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"That is a very difficult situation. : ( I myself have some near-fanatical Catholic relatives, so I feel your pain. I think you are going to have to take the reins on the subject of religion with your kids, because if their grandparents are…"

Tara replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion ORIGIN OF ATHEIST PRIDE in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I agree with Jeff's and D. E. Hall's point very much. We should be proud of our atheism and proud to have thrown off the fallacy of religion. And I am not only proud of, but often awed by, the sheer tenacity of scientifc thought to…"

Tara commented on Sarah Elle's blog post Kick a Ginger- Do we Blame Television or Bad Parenting?
"Hmmm...why don't the gingers retaliate tomorrow with Punch a Ginger-Hater Day? Seriously though, I remember a similar spate of incidents when Bevis and Butthead first aired. Part of it is lack of ability to comprehend the consequences of their…"

Tara replied to Sarah Elle's discussion Atheists - What do you believe? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"My simple answer is that I don't know, but it's fun to think about. I do believe the Big Bang happened because I think the microwave detection experiment by Penzias and Wilson demonstrated it beyond a doubt. The fact that their detector…"
