OK Don't know who else could give me a ride and if no one, maybe next time. The economy needs to let up so people can get on their feet again and when that happens, I'm going to get me a car again. lol

Hey Jonathan: This is Barbara. Just wanted to let you know that Corey Garrison is one of my students. He'll probably come to one of our meetups. He's a really good guy, you'll like him :)

Hello sir. I scarcely ever use this thing (I know, I should). Your group sounds pretty swell and I'd definitely be in. Just toss me an e-mail at and hit me with the details.

I know what you mean! I have MySpace (2 separate accounts), Facebook, Meetup, Nexus, an INFP group, and 5 email accounts. Sometimes it's like I live several different lives, some of which I don't dare get mixed up. It gets confusing!

Hi Jonathan. I am planning on being in Joplin and Springfield this weekend to meet up with as many Atheists as I can. I am meeting with a group in Joplin at 11:00 AM on Sunday and am trying to get a meetup scheduled for 3:00 PM Sunday in Springfield. There is a Springfield meetup group at which you may want to check out.

I have been tracking House Bill 656. At this time the bill has not made it to a committee, is not scheduled for a hearing, and isn't on a calendar. But we do need to tell as many people as we can about it and keep an eye on it. If it does go to committee we will want to make some noise. I will post a bit about the Bill on the MO Atheists group forum this evening.

I would love to meet you this weekend and I will keep you updated on what's happening in Springfield.

That's sad. (cool about Africa!) but I mean the limits placed on what you could learn.

I never had any of that kind of pressure in my house growing up. I was always being taken to science museums to play with fossils or learning about space and stars. Mum may be a quasi creationist (she thinks the antrhopic principle of how "perfect" the world is for life is a reason for thinking there's a god. She's despairing of the Answers in Genesis brigade and young earth creationists. When I tell her about them she rolls her eyes and says they've missed the point. Genesis isnt supposed to be taken literally. She doesn't seem to spot the contradiction in how can one decide that a big boat full of animals is a metaphor, but bloke walking out of his tomb after threes days REALLY HAPPENED.

I'm presently unemployed and my career is going nowhere and oh joy were in a recession. I'm tempted to and retrain in science. I wish I could but at touching 30 going back to school - again... tempting but no.

Thanks for sharing that. It's funny dawkins et al never really contributed to my atheism developing. I kind of got there by myself , but now they are tremendous fun for me to read as a way of intellectualising and getting to grips with what I had already realised.

Of all the books I think of Dawkins that have helped me the most have been The Ancestor's Tale, followed shortly by The Selfish Gene. I have yet to read Blind Watchmaker, extended Phenotype or Unweaving the Rainbow, but they are on my list....

My mum is a Protestant Christian but dad is a lapsed catholic, since my extended family is Irish you can only imagine the kind of ructions THAT caused...

I look forward to seeing what you write.
