My son works in the electronic/internet advertising business. He said this is still much too expensive and the next big thing will be a no or low cost Kindle type device. To get it at…"
"Welcome to the neighbourhood. Can't imagine that you will need to explain your atheism here. Like the rest of humanity I was also born an atheist, but just didn't find make believe friends needed to be necessary.

"It chills me to read about bullying by christian children, even more so if their parents didn't constrain them.
I in no way had a typical upbringing for an atheist kid.
I lived in 90%+ Jewish neighborhood. Since many Jews are atheists and…"
"I agree Alex. I have raised my children to be freethinkers. They know that their Mother and I are both Atheists but that they are free to explore their own thoughts on the subject. As fate would have it they are all at least agnostic on the subject.…"

And besides I also went to a Catholic…"

I am Gandhi! A least I think I dress better than he did.
The economic is the real surprise to me. I bet it would be higher (closer to zero) if it had been taken before the economic…"
