My wife (who is a theist for the time being), has made a ccomment that although she likes my passion, she feels I might be offending people or becoming to militant. I asked her, what about the Latter Day Saints and the Jehovah Witnesses. Aren't they more "militant" than I am. She smiled and stated. "Maybe you should do that. Go door to door and spread the word of a non returning Jehovah". Wow! Has anyone done this? I am willing to dedicate Saturdays or whenever to go from house to house and spread the non word. Lol. As free thinkers do we not have a duty to "wake" people up? "Wake up Neo, the theists have got you". Anyway, that's my idea. Anyone else?

My friend just sent me a bumper sticker "Militant Agnostic - I don't know and you don't either."  This is about as militant as I want to get.  I don't want to have the same reputation as the Jehovah Witnesses- even for the "right" reason.  As to the non-coming, how do we prove a negative?  I think aggressive tactics will only alienate the believers.  I think we should stand up for what we believe in: SCIENCE.  I have two granddaughters, ages 4 and 2.  It deeply concerns me that the other set of grandparents are fundamentalists and will be "teaching" my grandkids.  However, alienation will only cause a rift in the family. I plan to teach my grandkids about science as they grow older, and let them observe who sounds more rational.
This sounds very appealing...but I don't think it will get legs for a long-term "evangelizing" effort.  I could see it being an awareness-raising one-time effort where the local news organizations are clued in and get some news coverage.  Good luck with trying to pull it together.
