Mark, if you're really going to the rally, let's hook up. I'm going to be staying at the Marriott so I can attend the AA convention afterwards. There are already a few committed SWiFT members going. I want to have a meeting at the Jefferson Memorial the Friday before the rally and say the "real" Pledge and video tape it. Hopefully you can make that. Congratulations to you and Margie.
That is so great to know!! My best friend was supposed to go to the show with me, but she had to cancel due to the time change. She was so mad that she misses it, so this would be the perfect gift for her for christmas! (plus I'll have to buy one for myself! That was seriously a good show!!)
Hello Mark, and welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism---a haven from the superstitions and fictional god of the masses.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 480 discussion topics and 2700 members.
Thanks for the information...I'll be seeking out your book to fill in the many gaps I have about the secular humanist movement. (I'd certainly rather fill the gaps with rational explanations that the ALTERNATIVE.) I'm familiar with the writings of Dawkins, Sagan, and Dennett. I've also become a fan of Susan Jacoby's books.
Tell us about your book, Mark...I'm interested in your choice of title: Redundant in the fact that we humans think or feel we need god but don't or have we replaced god with some other new, improved belief system? Like rationalism? Like Reason?
