I remember a nun's long ago telling of a man who'd carried Jesus across a river and saying the name "Christopher" means Christ bearer.

We who do not believe -- all of us, whatever our names -- bear a lot.

Thanks Andrew. Like Mr Hitchens prefer Christopher. Amuses me when xtian types call me Chris and just point that if they want to shorten my name I prefer Christ! Brings them into line pretty quickly!

Sure thing Christopher. I almost called you 'Chris,' then I thought of Christopher Hitchens who insisted on being called Christopher.

At almost 3 hours total, it still seems worth making the time to watch.

Google/Bing/Whatever "six kinds of atheists" and you might still find the alternet.org article about the study done at the Univ. of Tennessee.

I'm out [of the closet] to the members of my Toastmasters club and about a month ago I used the article for a speech. They all looked like they were listening and one member who's an xian told me it was one of the best speeches I've given.

Two weeks ago they elected me the club's president.

Yes. A PBS station near San Francisco ran it several years ago. Happily, I recorded it.

It was the first time I'd seen atheism on TV. I wrote to the station, thanked them and sent a donation.

On the term atheism: "We don't have a special word for people who don't believe in ghosts or witches." ~ Jonathon Miller
