What's the stupidest religious idea you've ever heard?

Three ideas. God exists. God (if existed) is good. Prayer makes any sense whatsover.

Who's your favorite freethought 'hero'?

Roger Williams (Puritan founder of Rhode Island). Even though he was a religious (Calvinist) nut, his instincts were good, so I forgive him. Met Dan Barker once; he's excellent as well.

When did you admit to being an atheist?

Age of 10. I have drifted into agnosticism in weak moments, but now that I am old enough to die at any moment (though still healthy at the moment, though perhaps demented--bad genetics), I have decided I am a religious fanatic of the atheist variety. Even atheists often find my sense of humor and heresy difficult to take.

Introduction

Grew up in LA/Orange County. Jewish ancestors. Atheist since age of 10. Now 70 years old and live on Whidbey Island, WA. going to visit LA in Feb 2015 with 11 year old granddaughter (maybe) in Feb 2015.
