Coincidence and musing

Recommended Posts

There was an interesting article on the front page of the LA Times today outlining the shrinking numbers of Americans claiming to be Christians, or even having any religious affirmations. And here we were just bemoaning the lack of good news in the newspapers! I've stated before that organized religion seems to foster more strife and grief than any other man-made institution.

Here's a link to the article if anyone is interested:


Coincidentally, I found this while skimming through Wikipedia today:

The Old Testament is responsible for more atheism, agnosticism, disbelief—call it what you will—than any book ever written; it has emptied more churches than all the counter-attractions of cinema, motor bicycle and golf course.

Elizabeth Ann
Said to her Nan:
"Please will you tell me how God began?
Somebody must have made Him. So
Who could it be, 'cos I want to know?"

Both these thoughts were penned by AA Milne, a favorite author of mine.

I'm an admirer of the late Christopher Hitchens. His many videos of his debates and interviews are an entertainment in themselves,

but I have to mention the title of his book, God is Not Great -(How religion poisons everything.)

The fundies hate that title.
