"I don't think there's enough evidence to consider Jesus an historical figure. At the time expectation was in the air with many claiming to be the Christ. The situation was ripe for the picking."

Jesus H Christ, according to the Church of the Latter Day Dudes

Bearded prophet of the meek and early archetype of the 1960s hippie.Jesus was born Jewish, but then converted to Dudeism after he realized that the Romans and the Pharisees were fucking fascists. Today lots of people think he’s the son of the guy who created the universe and that our life is in his hands. But probably he was just a dude who thought people should mellow out and stop getting so worked up about stuff. Sadly, few of his followers seem to actually realize that. Remember: There’s not…See More

An Epicurean Answers Habakkuk's Questions

Rarer still to find one who acknowledges the evils that religion brings upon humanity. Habakkuk is one of the lesser, little-known prophets from the Old Testament, and one who bore witness against his own god and questioned him about the existence of evil, injustice, and suffering in the world. His disappointment is typical of those who …See More

We're trying to increase the 3 of displayed discussions, consolidate the gay groups, and keep the group timely. The Social Networking platform is a bit slow to get us there, but I hope that we eventually get there.

Once again, welcome!

I haven't read that, but Octavia was a wonderful lady and we all miss her. Hopefully our group can help you navigate all the wonderfully strange experiences science fiction and fantasy have to offer.
