  • To conservativeatheist, pencil, Frank Cress, and Matt –

    Sorry, pencil, that I failed to reply to you when you posted your question. I agree with conservativeatheist. Religions should be taught in schools in History classes. The King James Bible should be taught as Literature (it's terrific stuff – poetry and stories.) But of course no kid should be told that any religious belief is true.

    Frank Cress, I shall read your book.

    Matt, we posted a review of Ravi Zacharias's book, 'Beyond Opinion: Living the Faith We Defend' , (You can find it if you put Reviews into the search slot). We do not agree with the author at all.

    I’m curious what your take is on what you mean by religious dogma. As in government should
    keep it from being taught? Or as in it is nonsense? For sure from an atheist perspective churches
    also teach dogma. I’m curious though, what your view is on the freedom to teach such things in school.
    Ill be it its complicated in some repects. If you want my opinion . . . any teaching that is not coercive in nature
    is perfectly constitutional. That is, if the students are not being required to take the class .. .
    then people like say creationists are welcome to teach what they may as long as that class
    or that teaching is not . . . “required” learning. I’m speaking to the one putting up these posts.
    I would like to know what you think about this.

    PS; I hope Obama fails

      Schools should only teach generally accepted truths and history. Religion as an historical topic is quite acceptable and reasonable. Religion has had tremendous world impact, both negative and postive, and this should be recognized in schools. On the other hand, teaching any religion as the truth spoken by a god is unacceptable for obvious reasons.

    I must suggest Christians and Atheist to read this book “The End of Reason” by Dr. Ravi Zacharias. This book forces the reader’s mind to do the critical thinking that is so lacking in Christianity today. It should also be considered required reading for the atheist who has never really looked at a logical argument for the existence of God, or the Christian who has never really critically analyzed his own faith.

  • I’m proud to say that I’ve just published my second book of commentary from the conservative atheist perspective. This book, Reason For Life, is much less autobiographical than my first book and much more topical. The United States is being torn in two right under our noses. The religious right continues to wage a campaign to replace science in our schools with religious dogma. The liberal leftists have taken their political correctness agenda to new heights. The upcoming presidential election is probably more important than any in my lifetime. We’re at war with religious terrorist abroad and cultural relativists at home. This new book examines a wide spectrum of timely topics from the hopefully reasonable and rational perspective of a conservative atheist. If you are interested in purchasing Reason For Life, please check out my publisher’s web site below or visit BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com or any of your favorite bookstores.

    Thanks for your past interest.
