Your character was never called into question; just your behavior.

Don’t forget to point out that the earth is more than a few thousand years old.


And round....

Life in Lubbock, Texas taught me two things. One is that God loves
you and you're going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the
most awful, dirty thing on the face of the earth and you should save
it for someone you love.

See?  I told you so!

There is proof if ever you needed it.  And yeah, I DID say it out loud.  I'm getting more confident by the minute!

Okay, I suppose I should clarify my thinking on what exactly my point of putting together these projects.

I intended this to be a project in which many people can contribute to.  The project was to increase knowledge on particular subjects, such as Court suggested about evolutionary theory possibly.  It is not meant to be a creation of some organization to serve some atheist agenda.  I only want to bring many minds together and add to a knowledge base of sorts.

As for the charitable projects - I would not be opposed to that idea.  It wasn't the intent of my idea for these projects but I would not be opposed if someone were to put together an idea on how to go about doing that.  However, as has been pointed out, there already exist many charitable organizations.  The campus atheist and agnostic group here has an ongoing fund-raising project for the American Cancer Society.  Last year I was the VP of the local Psi Chi chapter which did a food drive for local soup kitchens, put together care packages for local military members (they were all aware their VP was an atheist if anyone wanted to know), worked with a local organization to remodel local shelters, and I worked in a domestic violence shelter for nearly four years as well.  So I am no stranger to doing charity work.

Forming an organization was never my idea.  It was to simply bring minds together to work on intellectual projects and piece together some scholarly work in the sense that it will be evidenced-based information.

Does that provide a better understanding?

I totally agree, Squid, and I think this is a great idea. You just need to nail down a topic.
Once you do, I'd just post it on a bunch of forums and start a mass email chain, informing people of the project. The more participants, the better.

I'd help, but I'm too apathetic and I'm just a bit misanthropic.

Gee, your life must be pretty bleak if you don't think there's a purpose.


Enjoy that lunch, anyway.

Man does not live by bread alone, though.

I was thinking, surely, he won't make a joke because I used the word "coming." Clearly, I was wrong :lol:
