Go to: Atheist wins "The American Bible Challenge"

Barbara Necker's Avatar Jump to comment 25 by Barbara Necker

Have you ever seen "The Atheist Experience" on You Tube? It's broadcast from bible-thumpin' country -- Austin Tx & the head honcho is Matt Dillahunty, an ex-preacher. Matt regularly wipes up the floor with callers who challenge his atheism. This show is on every Sunday afternoon around 4 or 5 p.m.

Go to: living in the watchtower

Barbara Necker's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by Barbara Necker

There probably isn't much you can do short of moving out. Believers are usually utterly convinced they and their religion are right. I once worked for a very nice JW woman, who was usually very good about controlling her impulses to evangelize, but one day we did get into a slight discussion about religion. I'm an agnostic, & when I called her religion a "philosophy," she got all huffy & proclaimed it was NOT a philosophy, but "the word of god."

Go to: Why Jehovah's Witnesses won't mourn the Aurora victims

Barbara Necker's Avatar Jump to comment 23 by Barbara Necker

I'm willing to live & let live as far as believers are concerned, but when they try to insert themselves into my life or make ridiculous public pronouncements like the JW elder did re the Aurora shootings,, then I say they should mind their own business.

Go to: A New Way of Thinking -- Faircloth Interview

By the way, Sean, I read your book & learned a lot -- namely that religion is even more pernicious than I thought.

Go to: A New Way of Thinking -- Faircloth Interview

Barbara Necker's Avatar Jump to comment 20 by Barbara Necker

If there is a god, and if it actually pays attention to its creation, it must be laughing its head off at the inanity of us all. Perhaps creation is actually a play or movie some celestial Speilberg put together for the entertainment of his fellow Olympians. We won't know we've been in a play until the lights dim & final curtain comes down.
