  • Atheist Quotes

    I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake.

    Richard Dawkins

While we mostly kept talking to a minimum I did overhear the three temps talking about Church and how all three knew one another. Since I was technically in charge of them I figured it wasn’t wise for me to get into a discussion about religion so I did the unusual, I bit my tongue and kept silent figuring to keep the peace and realizing that I probably would never see these guys again.

The Dark Ages


Most people have heard of the dark ages and a few even know what they were. Even fewer know of the Church’s role in the dark ages but it is something I think everyone should be aware of. Continue reading
