"I never heard of these Epicurus sayings, but they certainly do seem worth mulling over, arguably as much as or more any rolled-up scroll wisdom that I've encountered."

jlaz replied to jlaz's discussion Atheist variant on Jewish Mezuzah?
"Thanks for the further ideas.  The Humanorah seems kind of cool (not a mezuzah, not a menorah, and makes you think) and it seems logical to consider a Sherwin Wine quote.  There are all manner of good quotes out there if one just wants to…"

books: (fiction) "About The Rapture"

Hi - is there already a thread where this book was or is being discussed?  I think I saw an advertisement for this novel on Atheist Nexus a year or two ago (or perhaps it was at another website?) and I recently read the book.  So, I guess as a follow-up I wanted to see if others had read it and what their thoughts are.  …See More
