I've been away for a bit. Helping some friends put together a new talk forum. We think that the forum has been spotted by, none other than, Glenn Beck. He seems a bit freaked out about the new ARIS religion poll, and... something else. Why the heck would Glenn Beck refer to God as "natures god" in this article. Have you folks been talking about "Nature's God" over here as WWGHA, sinse I've been gone?
The reality? Our site, isn't even off the ground, and it's in the Dittohead, Wingnut crosshairs. Yikes! I hope if they go nuts on us, you Atheists and Agnostics over here, will come over there, and give us a hand. Come on, relax, the people behind the InGodWeTrust forum are actually Agnostic, so you'll be perfectly safe over there.
Check it out. Is Beck freaked out about sites like WWGHA? Or, is he freaked out about sites like WWGHA, being quoted and promoted by sites like the In Nature's God We Trust Forum
God Is Under Attack in America
Wednesday, March 11, 2009

ADVERTISEMENTHere's the one thing: We are no longer "one nation under God" because God is under attack in America.
Even if you're not a religious person, I need you to understand why this is so important and it all goes back to our country's founding.
Before that, most people only believed in the divine right of kings; the idea that God only gave power to kings and those kings were accountable to no one.
But what made America unique was that it was founded on divine providence.
Remember the term "endowed by their creator" in the Declaration of Independence? That was a revolutionary concept at the time and it means that God actually had a hand in the world's greatest experiment in democracy.Whether our founders believed in organized religion or not, each of them abided by the laws of morality and nature's God, which is why they put that term in the very first line of the declaration.
If you still doubt the founders' views on religion, then just listen to how Ben Franklin described the religion of America... [Yada, yada..spin, spin, spin.]
Beck's right. There's a War of Reason brewing. You folks at WWGHA, might want to start thinking about whose side you're going to come down on. I can't imagine that you're on the side of the "Cons of the Myth
". We'll need all the brilliant minds we can get.
