I imagine the pilgrims suffering from enlarged prostates were "inspired" by the running Jesus feet water on their way into the urinal. Miracle pee?

In an effort to cure a sick tree, my Catholic neighbor hung a Ball canning jar with a picture of a saint from a branch and thought the water droplets on the inside were the saint's tears. Could a short seminar on secular condensation land me in jail?

I also wish that Mr Krauss would try to be more historically acurate, it could lead to the misconception that Arizona State University is just an inconsequential party school.

It is always great to see someone, despite the odds. throw off the chains of generational brainwashing.

I would love to come back in 2,000 years and watch a breaking news story that the last 3 Jesus believers in the world were found in an isolated cave in the South Pacific.

" but I no longer enjoy the company of my congregation, and the sound of the choir makes my skin crawl." (Schleppenheimer 33) ....Wow! I wasn't even close! Reminds me of growing up in the Evangelical United Breatheren Lutheran church and being disgusted by the phonies trying to sell each other life insurance. The organ made my ears ring. I was confirmed for my mother, but never believed any of it from day 1, and drove the instructors nuts with George Carlinesque questions.

Good luck, keep on questioning stuff!

Comment 24 by schleppenheimer :

I had the privilege of seeing Richard Dawkins on Chris Hayes Show "Up" this morning -- and yes, I was getting ready for church. The MORMON church. I was pleased to see Dawkins say what he said, out loud and for all to see, about "our" supposed candidate for the Republican nomination for President. I still attend the Mormon church for reasons few atheists could comprehend, but I don't agree with most of what I hear at my meetings. I do, however, know that what Dawkins said about our church and its first prophet is absolutely true, and the fact that Mormons believe this is seriously shocking. I'm not saying there aren't good things about churches in general, but I am thrilled that somebody like Dawkins will be prepared to press things about the specifics of our supposed beliefs, and push the envelope to test those beliefs. If we are not prepared to answer the hard questions with something better than blind faith, then we are not using our God-given brains to worship the very Lord we claim to love. Thank you, Richard Dawkins.

" I still attend the Mormon church for reasons few atheists could comprehend, " .....Let me try. You sound like a deist that enjoys the company of your congregation and the sound of their great choir, but draw the line at trashing Cal prop 8. Am I close? Regardless, you sound like a nice person.

No mention of separation?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

  -- The First Amendment

In order to guarantee an atmosphere of absolute religious liberty, this country's founders also mandated the strict separation of church and state.

Reality check from a non-godbot in Tempe, Az, USA. The Catholic neighbor on the corner placed a picture of a saint in a Ball canning jar and hung it from a sick tree in hopes of a blessed cure. (Aren't there better Voo Doo cures?) Corner 2 is a Mormon who watches Fox News exclusively. Corner 3 has a picture of Jesus in the window with the caption "Abortion is murder. Have a nice day." Jury is out on the renter on corner 4 who lives with his girlfriend and brother and wakes me into a near stroke with a full set of drums. Could this be the secular hope of which you speak?

The government sure stepped on the religious freedom of the Mormons when they banned polygamy and caused Mitt Romney's grandpappy to move to Mexico to keep his wives.

I will gladly donate to the 'Catholics to Mexico' movement.

I find that godbots are more familiar with a scale of 0 to 10, so I state that I am a 9.9s to infinity non-believer, or that I am 99.9s to infinity % sure that there is no god.

I can't totally disprove gods existance in a courtroom or laboratory.
