Title: great [#1389]
Post by: DL on May 16, 2009, 04:32:10 PM
Hello:

Kudos to you and for an excellent web site. Great material and very well
organized! It is as good as any I have seen.

I have been a closet atheist since about nine years old when the
Vacation Bible School teacher had my mom come get me for "disrupting the
class."

She was telling us about the Garden of Eden, and I asked "What about the
dinosaurs, where/when were they?"

I know who Harris and Hitchens and Dawkins are, but who are you?
Individual? Organization? Info Please!

I can only imagine the "flack" you get and understand if you wish to
stay anonymous. It can be a dangerous world for free thinkers!
Please continue your endeavors.

The site's creator doesn't post here, but he is HowStuffWorks creator Marshall Brain.

For future reference, you should ask:

"Why are there two creation stories in the Bible?"

Genesis 1 to 2:3

Genesis 2:4 to 2:25

Next, ask him/her:

"Wasn't the serpent the hero of the story?"

He gave humans knowledge and freed them from the oppression of the largely ignorant demiurge/creator god.[1]

Excellent - I was thrown out of Bible School for heresy at age 5 or 6 - the sudden appearance of People of the Land of Nod did it for me.

Good for both of you!  I remember thinking... really?  No kidding, you can get all those animals on the Ark?  A person can survive in a fish for 3 days?  But, I thought maybe it was just me because everyone else seemed to be swallowing it hook, line and sinker.

Join the forum OP.

Hello  :D [wave]

It's always nice when we get the polite and well structured thank-you type emails.

You should join our forum.  If you want a place to hang out and talk with fellow minded people this is the place.

That is hilarious  :D

If you happen to come back then just roam through the mailbag for about 5 minutes.  "Flack" is an understatement.
