And Then, There's the Bible

Homosexuality has been condemned by religious leaders for centuries. For many, homophobia is a prejudice largely created and sustained by the scriptures of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Citing the Bible as the ultimate proof-source, many may find that it is not as clear as one might think on the subject.

Essentially, there are seven biblical passages cited by Christians to…

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!

Maybe you would be interested in my review of the Manual for Creating Atheists.

New group, in case you are interested.  I always read your thoughtful posts with great enthusiasm and interest:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

Glad to hear you are doing better. My thoughts are with you.
