Greetings, Billy! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home. BTW, I'm form Philly too.

I was just reciting to myself a list of people I haven't seen around the Nexus in a while, and you were one of them. Glad to see you back!

Billyist, please consider joining my new group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.

I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.

This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to males only. Please check it out.

Thanks for the welcome, I really needed it. I was so thrilled to find this site. ^^ I'm trying to figure out the background right now, and it's not really going my way, haha.

Well, I still have to read the Jefferson Bible, as I said, but I just liked the concept, from what I gathered. Jesus as more of a mortal Buddha or Gandhi type guru than the 'son of God'. Give you the shirt off his back even if he would freeze himself to death. Regardless of whether or not he was an actual person, 'Jesus' was an extremely influential figure.

The LaVey book is awfully antagonistic towards religion, but I think it's more because LaVey's philosophies were so opposite of what is shoved down our throats by Christianity. He wrote the book to unite people with similar views, which were very .....I dunno......nihilistic or Nietschean in some ways. (http://dasatanists.deviantart.com/art/Lavey-Satanism-in-a-nutshell-35360723)

Compared to the pacifism of the Jefferson book. Sort of yin and yang.

I reject parts and accept parts of everything I read. I don't get why many of what I got from either book should be rejected, as many are common values, anyway, among humanity, as it is.

Hell, though I understand it to be a great work, and something religious people should be encouraged to read, a number of the arguments I hear people quote from the God Delusion is stuff I already have thought, without having yet read it anyway. So, certain parts of that would be redundant like hearing myself speak. But, I would still want to read the book, even if not every word was of interest to me.

yeah, crowded house is special to me. I really felt the music, and i'm glad they're back together. I guess you're new here, just glanced at your profile. Welcome. This place is steadily growing; haven't been on it too much lately, and forgot what was on my page.
