Genesis is done!

Sorry for the self serving post, but I just feel the need to commemorate this milestone and I don't know who else to tell.   On my blog, The Blessed Atheist Bible Study, I have just finished my Skeptical take on Genesis.  I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's been 48 separate posts, about 60000 words of writing and nearly two months of time.  Whew!  I feel great.  One book down, 65 left.  I have years of work ahead of me.  On to exodus!Thanks for listening.The Blessed Atheist…See More

Waylon Hedegaard replied to Gerald Scott's discussion You can't be an atheist if you haven't read the bible
"I agree, but most of these do not pose the same threat Yahweh of young earth creationism fame, does. There is only one God in America who seems to be solidly in the way of scientific progress and education, for now anyway. What ever honorable weapon…"

Well I'm not too sure right now ... I only personally know two other atheists - one of which is like a second dad to me and he don't tell people he is an atheist (pretty sure I'm one of the few who know) and the other is complicated...

I'd love to hang with like minded people, but truthfully I'm a little nervous about that kind of thing at the moment i would like to try though.

Was excited when I saw teh convention, but the date is bad for me. We farm and harvest is going very slowly this year so I'm sure we will be in the field. Maybe next time.

Thanks for the comment. I was actually thinking about doing a local atheist Bible study as well. They really hate it when you know their BS better than they do! Gotcha bookmarked.

Hi and a friendly welcome to Waylon Hedegaard from Bismarck, ND.
We are pleased to see you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

This is the greatest atheist meeting place with its 14,000 bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy lively discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
