Hey Morgan...

What do you think of this idea? I really like the idea of the name Brights that's been floating around. I'm thinking of making a t-shirt that has a light bulb on it and below it says something like, "I doubt it."

There's some t-shirts that say "The Future is Brights," but they're ugly.

I'm trying to think up a better phrase, though...

Gee I've been called bright all my life, now I can join a club, lol.

"I doubt it"- I like it, but you'd probably be questioned constantly about it.

Tonight I wore out my "don't pray, it doesn't work" shirt and I got so many more compliments than people trying to preach at me.

I don't think the right wing Xtians want to accept how large a community the non believers are.

You know what I'd design if I was all design-savvy like you....bumper stickers that have traffic laws on them. Because I think 75 percent of the drivers in Knoxville know things like "right on red" or "if a traffic light is out, pretend its a four way stop sign" type things, lol.

Yay I just found a website that makes me happy.

http://www.skepchick.org



At first glance when the page popped up I caught "various stages of undress" and then "James Randi" and I couldn't help but thinking, I love the guy, but do I think THAT freely? :lol:

Calendar sounds cool, but I think I like Asher's.

"NO one expects the Spanish Inquisition!"

I saw an awesome shirt on the way to Baltimore that read across the chest,
"I wish these were brains"

I laughed my ass off.

I'd hate to have brains growing out of MY chest...

It is morally as bad not to care whether a thing is true or not, so long as it makes you feel good, as it is not to care how you got your money as long as you have got it.
-Edmund Way Teale

True, but...
"A person is never happy except at the price of some ignorance."
Anatole France (1844 - 1924)

I don't know who said this but I heard it from a friend the other day -

Ignorance is not bliss but unconscious slavery.



I think questioning things will only help you discover the truth or strengthen one's faith. Both are postivie outcomes.

Me, I'm happier knowing there is no god. Otherwise I'd be miserable thinking of getting punishments for my sins and I'd be constantly angry that a loving all powerful god would let the things happen that he does.

Yeah, it IS just as bad not questioning anything and going about life in a constant state of unawareness... I just added that quote because I happened to see it the other day, and it contradicted that quote appropriately... I do think that SOME ignorance (but only to a certain extent) is what it takes to be happy though...

HPG: Wait... I think I'm misunderstanding you.

Are you saying the Anatole France quote contradicts the Edmund Way Teale quote?

Anatole France was revered as a skeptic. His work was even banned by the Catholic church as being dangerous to faith.

Yeah... I'm not sure how Anatole France's background and lifestyle are all that pertinent to the quote though... it's pretty direct, doesn't seem to be cryptic or anything...

I dunno. I actually read it as saying that in order to be happy you have to give up ignorance...
