PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



If I had high-speed, I'd definately listen to it -- I love Ingersoll.

I don't get that last part.

 

It has been a while since I've read any of his works, but I would have sworn that he was an agnostic. :shrug:

He was an agnostic -- I've read enough biographical articles about him to have known that.

 

In fact, below is a link to something he wrote, titled "Why I Am an Agnostic".

The difficulty comes from the evolving meanings of atheist and agnostic. In Ingersoll's writings, there isn't much difference between the two positions.

I love this man so much. I'd never heard of him till I found him here mentioned in a post and just discovered these podcasts this morning. He brings tears to my eyes and makes my heart skip beats and I feel like jumping out of my seat shouting a hearty 'Yes'! I thank you so much for putting these on line. Im making my way thru them.

 

I am going to try and download them and if I hit a snag will ask here what to do.

Hate to revive such an old thread, but the link appears to be broken.
