Leave it to religion to have so many devils: the dog who found christmas by Linda Jennings, illustrated by Catherine Walters; (In the garbage, before the kids read it, never thought I'd ban books!) appalling!

Glad to see my suggestion finally implemented after a year and a half.

Lol. All the "bad" parts of anything gotta go and it's defiantly due to 2\3rds lacking EDU.

Nonsense! If it wasn't for "ancient wisdoms" we would still live in caves.. Why is it so hard to believe we have spiritual evolution given by creation? Soon scientists will finally and hopefully proove Atlantis existed(maybe still does - depends on myth) and then we will see..so brainwash joke is on you actually!

Dear Ann Launders,

Looking at wikipedia I've determined I'm an agnostic atheist. However, I also discovered there's something called a Christian Atheist, i.e. someone who appreciates the teachings of Jesus but figures he lied about being the Son of God. That seems a reasonable stance to me too. Maybe I should convert and become a Christian Agnostic Atheist, perhaps join the Universalist Unitarian Church. However, I remember at youth group at my brother's church (they had an indoor gym and basketball games I liked to play in) they talked about people who make deals with belief, say to make friends, please their girlfriend, get their parents off their back or whatever, and they felt that was kind of disrespectful or at least bad form. So for me the motive, if I really thought about it, for conversion to Christian Agnostic Atheism would probably, deep down, be the wish to become a citizen so I can vote and stuff. If I join the UUC I could get a letter explaining my conscientious objection to war (I'm not strictly a pacifist, but you have to show me the war before I support it -- I'm not swearing to support any and whatever war you want to put on -- that's just crazy) and not end up in Margaret Doughty's position. What should I do?

Sincerely,
Tentative.

"joke"?
Teaching is the same as brainwashing, is it not? Or, is that too off topic?

p.s: not all ancient wisdoms just the warmongering\satanic++ ones...

I'm cool with religions evolving. Let's get rid of the devil, hell and raining frogs or anything leading to thoughts of "armageddon" you can keep the "good" fairytale stuff like the mothership and whatnot? 4now.

P.s: what's the matter with living in caves?

@jamison20000e: It is not about "religions evolving" but truth inside those religions! As mentioned in Logic vs "logic" thread - just because it is written in book doesn't mean it is true BUT it also works other way so just because it is written in book doesn't mean it is false either.. I reccommend finding truth by exploring on your own like this video teaches:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfVg6Bif8PY

Well if you have no problem living in cave(s) then sure go ahead and live in them but don't take others with you in this BS lifestyle..

Like the video but the fact is everything is circular: life, death, positive, negative, good, evil; we simply posture like monkeys, scientists, preachers and et cetera till we die(.)

There are infinite ways to look at anything, we can only comprehend "our" own...Get over it!

May we all live long and prosper...
