Does the park have Dinosaurs? I'd love to see Jesus riding a raptor.

In fact, is there any historicity to this? Perhaps the Gospels got the triumphal entry incorrect? I mean, riding in on a velociraptor is a major improvement over common livestock.

Music to my ears. No compromise, reality based. Some magnificent quotes in there.

On the one hand, I think it is vital that we as skeptics are subject to robust critisism. I don't mind being on the receiving end of a good critique and perhaps we can be a bit jingoistic at times.

But, and its a big but, the majority of former believers I know left the faith because they ceased to believe it was an accurate reflection of reality. I'd love it if my adversary's could respond to this. Yes we can be vocal, and yes we do make fun sometimes. Yet beneath this we've valid objections deserving of a cogent response. That's what I'm waiting for, and I won't extend false respect where I feel none is merited.

That's how I found my way out. I decided to put my beliefs to the test. They crumbled.
