Good grief. Is this still going on? Seems to lend credence to the experiment after all.

Ka Ching!

The best $29.95 Doug ever earned. LOL

Blah blah blah

Such fear of the waters from which we all came.

How can we truly be whole till we embrace the oceans?

...Some people even thought the trees had been a bad move, and no one should ever have left the oceans!" - Douglas Adams "The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy"

Seriously, what does Chuthulu have to do with fear of the oceans from which we came?

Hmmm, I don't know if I did something wrong or what. I got the opening page and clicked where I was told to click. I got what I assume was the end page telling me to stop crying, those were bad people and nothing really bad happened.

Yeah ... it's a link to a page hidden deep in the inner secret workings of my website - now that you have activated the curse, Cthulhu is now aware of you, personally and individually, and ... excuse me while I check that scratching and rattling at my window ... it's such a stormy night, wouldn't want the windows to blow open ... maybe the cat wants in ... sounds bigger than the cat, though ... No - OMIGOD NO! NOOOOOOOO!

Why is it that atheists can never seem to spell their 'faith' correctly? Every atheist I've known with whom I've had written correspondence (regarding religion) has spelled it "athiesm."

Annoys the bejesus out of me too. However, to characterize atheism as a "faith" is misleading. Atheism is the ABSENCE of faith in gods. Period. Many theists can't seem to wrap their brains around this. Atheism is as much a faith as "bald" is a hair color, or "not collecting stamps" is a hobby. As a bald atheist who doesn't collect stamps, I oughtta know.

Margaret Atwood, interviewed on BILL MOYERS ON FAITH AND REASON, said
Quote:
MARGARET ATWOOD: No, atheism is a religion.

BILL MOYERS: You mean it's dogmatic?

MARGARET ATWOOD: Absolutely dogmatic.

BILL MOYERS: How so?

MARGARET ATWOOD: Well it makes an absolute stand about something that cannot be proven.

BILL MOYERS: There is no God.

MARGARET ATWOOD: You can't prove that.

BILL MOYERS: So you become-- what' a strict agnostic?

MARGARET ATWOOD: A strict agnostic says, you cannot pronounce, as knowledge, anything you cannot demonstrate. In other words if you're going to call it knowledge you have to be able to run an experiment on it that's repeatable. You can't run an experiment on whether God exists or not, therefore you can't say anything about it as knowledge. You can have a belief if you want to, or if that is what grabs you, if you were called in that direction, if you have a subjective experience of that kind, that would be your belief system. You just can't call it knowledge.


Struck me as very astute.

Atheism is not a religion. Simply sharing a characteristic (being dogmatic) doesn't put them in the same category. Atwood should know better.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".
