So...in the AIT Platoon Sergeant Course, we were being educated on soldier wellness and resilience and Comprehensive Soldier Fitness was on the list of "tools" for soldiers on the PPT and it was completely ignored. I was curious, but to keep the class moving I decided it would be better to wait until I attend the Master Resilience Trainer course to dig further. I will also say that the "Prohibited Practices" and EO classes showed how damned ignorant senior NCOs really are and why I actually don't get along with many of my peers. Out of 30, about half couldn't understand the issue with making non-churchgoers clean while the rest were worshipping and the "gay dilemma" was brought up by the homophobes who apparently think they're attractive. The shower problem.

Hi,

Anyone in Leatherneck, Helmand right now? Drop me a line if you are, especially if you're able to download podcasts, 'cos I'm really pining for Atheist Experience, Atheist News, Chariots of Iron and The Non Prophets....

@Mayse - Hey brother, I am with Jason on this one.  No expressing of our pyromaniacal desires, no matter how frustrated. I THINK you were just making conversation but just saying, you (or anyone else) goes doing stuff like that and they have GREAT talking points about "what happens when you leave the teachings of the Church - arson!"

No burning things down.  That's not ok.  Although I do understand the frustration.  Hopefully having a community like MAAF will help those who are still in find some better solutions and protections.

The site looks interesting. I have bookmarked it to go over when I have more time to utilize it wisely. Thanks for the site.

Jason,

 

I don't know if I mentioned it when we met in DC last week, but I had an unpleasant interaction with a chaplain in Iraq that may (or may not) be of some interest to you.  I have a (admittedly very sloppy) write up of it on my website (www.tonyd.us) under Christian Karate.  If this is something that you can use in any way let me know and I can clean it up a bit.

 

VR,

Tony

Yeah... This has come up more lately. Very odd.

A billion Hindus can't be wrong...

I actually thought that the "what if you are wrong" challenge from theists had just about gone the way of the dodo, but having been challenged with it twice this week I thought I'd post an article on Pascal's Wager.
