Started Reading "Lost Christianities" by Bart Ehrman...

I didn't expect it to be so funny!!

I've had (literal) laugh out loud moments (in public too!) 

Very very interesting.  And I can see now how it builds on works like "Jesus interrupted" - the revelation about the last 12 verses of Mark / Jesus being Angry / The Woman Caught in Adultery  - is just scratching the surface of the complexity in the world of beliefs prior to the New Testament actually being written.

This book is utterly fascinating.

Recovering Religionists

In the next few days I will be sending out a press release for a new group I wish to develop. It has occurred to me that there are many people out there who would not call themselves Atheists or even Agnostics, yet they have a real sense of how religion has infected them and hurt them in many ways. The name of the group will be Recovering Religionists, and will have principles similar to the old AA twelve steps without any god references. My vision is to create meetups that will be directed by… Continue

Letters From Earth, by Mark Twain

I learned as much as humanly possible about the eastern religions such as Hindi and Buddhism. The company I work for outsources to India and I work with a barrage… Continue
