Good work Lala!! Keep spreading the word.

I just heard an interview with Adam Savage on The Skeptic Society podcast (New England Skeptic Society...). I liked his positive attitude about the spreading of critical thinking...even if I'm not 100% convinced, it's nice to hear good news. Just seems like the looney bin is getting louder, but hopefully reason will prevail!

Hmmmm... might get a little rocky - those little buggers are mighty sensitive about their invisible friend.

Come back for hugs and support when you need it!

My heart is thumping hard and it's a wee difficult for me to breath at this moment...

Please know I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but I want his seen/heard without drawing unwanted attention.

I took this low carb team over two weeks ago, I have single-handedly brought in nearly 100 new members in this time, I've worked very hard for this team...

And now this:

Wow! Thanks, ya'll...

SUSAN - My dad was an Adventist when I was young, when my parents were still together. That church didn't do the scary stuff with the little kids, though. But, some weekends I was at church all weekend long, whenever mom would decide that I was learning "weird" things from the Adventists and ought to go to Baptist service too...

I liked your articles, especially that last Baptist fire and brimstone one. It reminded me of the Adventists scaring me to death about everyone else (including other religions) coming after us to kill us in the end of time! It was really traumatic and I was exposed to it at a much younger age, like between 7 and 9 years old!

I love my internet name! I have been the dalai_lala for nearly 15 years now. Most of my real world friends call me Lala too, even my sisters - only my husband never calls me Lala... odd...

One article is called Theoretically Speaking and the other is called Critical Thinking for Everyday Use.

Clicking on 'author' doesn't get me to a blog- so, what's the name of your article?
Thanks.

Oops... sorry... I thought that link would go directly to my author page, but apparently it goes straight to the homepage. If you scroll down about halfway down the page you'll see the author section. I'm Lori Blough.

Sorry for the confusion...

Umm- is it "A Spiritual Journey to Atheism"?
Well written.

I'm going to pimp myself here for a moment, if no one strenuously objects!

I've written a couple of articles for a new atheist/skeptic/secular blog that just launched today and I'm trying to spread the Good Word... :)

This will "out" me in a couple of ways, I guess (as in my name and public atheism)... and you may see this note again if you also belong to the Liberal Atheist Hippies...sorry.
