I've been living in my hilltown home for about 32 years. In that time, Jehovah's Witnesses have been coming to my door at least once every three years, usually in the spring. I suppose the reason for…Continue

"The earlier series went into the politics in more detail and dealt with the facts more dispassionately. Also, Will Lyman is a better narrator. From what I saw, Burns is pretty much using all of the same news footage as the older documentary."

"I watched a couple of episodes of Ken Burn's documentary and wasn't that impressed. I thought the earlier series, "Vietnam: A Television History" was better."

"What's the latest news on Ken Ham's Ark Museum? Is it still in business or has it gone bankrupt? I haven't seen any new videos about it on YouTube? How many of you have gone there?"

"Well, considering the fact that The Book of Mormon incorporates some passages from the KJV, and is just as ponderous a read, Twain's remarks are applicable to that book as well---in my opinion, anyway."

Lord of the Rings Atheists

As the group name implies, a place for atheists who love Middle Earth and things Tolkien to congregate, make friends and have discussions. I will have more to add here later.

Hello Sir Gwaith!  How are you, my friend?  Hope you've been well..... What's been going on with me. Well, I divorced a year ago, my daughter is with me. One son still lives with the ex, the older one with his girlfriend; they both work at GM here in Mi. I lost Oreo to kidney disease; put him down the day after xmas last year. I still miss him  :(    Summer is here (almost) and I miss the moths. Where I'm at now would not be at all a good environment for them outside anyway. Anyway, hope you're well. Maybe I'll check in to see if you're around  :)

These are about the sunken city.  It'll take me a bit to locate the Chinese scroll story.

 I had it backwards, the scrolls are a few years found and the city a few months.
