I just want to live, laugh and to tell a story or two. But as my late mum said to me, 'Mark' she said (!), 'you might be bright but you have no common sense.' And as a man who bought into 8-track cassettes and beta-max videos - I have to agree.
I do not believe that God exists. He is just too evil.
Their arrogant assumption that they are correct. Evidence for their convictions is so poor that one can even justify the assumption that Satan killed God and we've been praising Him ever since. It would explain a lot - e.g. the deaths of native S. Americans, the constant wars / crusades, the three ambiguous books, etc. But seriously - they're blind to the absurdity of their beliefs.
I didn't. I suggested we start it!
Yes - but I feel that direct confrontation is not the answer. They've had direct confrontation for millenia. Education is the answer.
I'm not a quick enough thinker, nor am I practised, to enter into serious debate. I like to write sarcastic/flippant material that extends religious 'logic' in the hope that it may cause a religious person to stop and think about what it is they're actually doing.
Wonderful people, nice atmosphere

Hi Martyn, I just sent an email reply via Storyturbo.com email, did you get it OK? That is easier for mails.
We would like to invite you to GlobalNet21 at http://www.meetup.com/GlobalNet21/ where we debate and discuss some of the great issues of the 21st century.
GlobalNet21 was established to discuss some of the great issues of our millennium and bring back the hope that we can do something about it. We hold many meetings from meetings in the House of Commons to online webinars and from larger meetings and presentations to smaller study circles.
Hi Martyn, thanks for the interest. I'll let you know the plan next week, after a few more people have joined. Geoff
Thanks Martyn, look forward to interacting. Also happy to send copies of the eBook to people for free if they'd like to send me their email address
Hi Martyn, I need to emphasise your statement... education is the ONLY way; but exactly how or what education.
(It sounds silly maybe, but I have a tiny problem with the use of words, names; so I might think: Goodalming, Abrahamic god, Jehovah,or spell out words; s-o-u-l,or sool. I may even employ backslang - dog!) ... Thanks for listening.
Hi Martyn and a warm welcome to London Songwriters! Look forward to seeing you at a future meetup. Kind Regards. Murray.

Hi Martyn and welcome to High Wycombe Skeptics in the pub. We're a lively group with plenty to discuss, and we have the odd speaker too. Godalming to High Wycombe is quite a drive, and I know there is a similar Skeptics meetup in Reading, but you are more than welcome to join us!
