    Grew up in New England in a fundamentalist background. Followed fundamentalism for a few years after I became an adult, but found it just didn't work. Now have interest in science, the environment and social justice.

  1. I guess this is the best category to put this under. I just wanted to let you know that I have just published a free book, Unholy Bible: The Unholy and Unreal Parts of the Bible, that contains lots of information that may be useful if you find yourself arguing with Christians about the Bible (or even if you are having trouble arguing with yourself). It can be downloaded for free at www.WardsBooks.com. Hope it is helpful to some of you.
  2. When I was able to do so I used to dance, kayak, hike and play tennis. (I forever regret that I never tried hang gliding.) My physical disabilities pretty much preclude these things now, but those would be my other suggestions from my own experience. But you, of course, would have to go with what you like. One could create a list of a hundred or so different hobbies or activities to choose from, but I assume you could do that yourself. It's just a matter of finding what appeals to you. There are lots of groups out there that are involved in various "causes" or "efforts": environmental, s
  3. For the X-mas carolers out there: OH, LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM Oh, little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by. Yet in thy dark streets starteth the everlasting hoax That through the years delights the ears of simple-minded folks. For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all around, While mortals sleep, the angels peek at that which does astound. For people will proclaim that this is a holy birth, Do anything their hoax to spring on folks thr
  4. I don't know if I have an answer. I'm actually rather like you. I find it hard to take interest in lots of things. I never watch TV. When I turn the thing on I just scan down through what's showing and then turn the blasted thing off again. And I've never understood why anyone was interested in watching sports. Are they just ..... well, no sense offending the sports fans at this site. Can't remember the last time I went out to a movie. For almost the last two years I have more or less "sequestered myself" to write some books (one of which I have published). That is what is keeping me go
  5. Did someone actually write that? If so, I don't think it is worth responding to except perhaps to just say "Grow up!"
  6. Because they like to think that you will be "convicted" of your "sin" by reading it, and thereby greatly disturbed.
  7. I suppose it is all subject to interpretation, especially given that the Psalms are poetry. I like your interpretation. It seems reasonable. The Christians, of course, will apply their own interpretation, but I will include it in my "Unholy Bible".
  8. There doesn't seem to be a good category for this question. This seems to be as close as any. Please forgive me if I chose poorly. I am writing an "Unholy Bible", basically a collection of quotes from the Bible that Christians would rather weren't in there (i.e. "ammo" to use if you should feel like wasting your time arguing with a Christian over the Bible). I am trying to find a specific passage that I recall seeing in the past but can't seem to find. It is a passage, I think somewhere in the Psalms, that talks about god interacting with other gods, kind of like a meeting of t
  9. The interesting thing is that I believe both the atheists and the fundamentalists would like to see the Bible at the top of the list.
  10. "No man should be in politics unless he would honestly rather not be there." - Henry Adams
  11. Oh, thank you. But is there not a page that explains how it all works?
  12. "Got questions about ... how to use the features on this site? Just ask!" Yes, that's what I have. I made a post yesterday with a mistake in it and wanted to go back and correct it, but I can't see any way to go back in a make a correction to a post if necessary. Also, I would like to be to "like" or "react" to posts like other people do, but I do not see any way to do so. Is there a page somewhere the site that explains the mechanics of how to use the site? (I hunted around but couldn't find one if it's here.)
  13. Sorry, " I always remember this when it gets misaligned (from disk pain I whine). " The parenthetical "from disk pain I whine" doesn't belong there. I copied from my original unedited version. If anyone knows how to go back in and edit a posting after submitting it please let me know.
  14. I just posted this song/poem at another site. Thought I would share it here also: INTELLIGENT DESIGN Some people say we got here by intelligent design. That is why I have an appendix that just works so fine. My windpipe and esophagus in my throat are combined, So I choke if I'm not careful, so great was the design. My backbone is so wondrous and perfectly designed. I always remember this when it gets misaligned (from disk pain I whine). My legs which are so nimble could not have come
