I really wish I wasn’t an atheist.  It would be totally necessary if we lived in a culture like the Piraha.

Tell me again why misionary work is good!

    relegions are simply faith abd devotion. it does not help survival or freedom from suffering.

Now my brother, an alcoholic and living with my parents, and me married, are both underemployed partially due to current economy in Michigan. Sometimes I wonder if the money my parents spent on ensuring we would get to heaven, wouldn’t have been better spent on a college education.
