FLASH NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! & LESSON OF THE DAY!
Today, Wed 8 a.m. we had our FreeThinking Breakfast at Olathe IHOP and met the Muslim owner of the restaurant and talked with him for 2 hours! the conversation was great, funny, lively, informative and kind of bizarre at the end - he asked me why would we not go around and kill and rape people as atheists? So, there is a lot of things to work on in this world - Christians and Muslims
One interesting thing came out of it... HE SAID HE WILL DENOUNCE ISLAM IF WE CAN SHOW HIM AT LEAST ONE SCIENTIST'S RESEARCH THAT RIVER WATER AND SEA WATER WHEN THEY MEET DO NOT FORM A NEW KIND OF WATER THAT IS NOT A SORT OF A WALL WHERE SOME FISH CAN LIVE. Sounds bizarre? - well, he says this is in the Koran and some researcher in France proved it! I have his commitment to conversion recorded on my cell phone, so if someone wants to do some research on it and e-mail me some links, let me know. He was dead serious about it, so we have a chance of our first reconversion :o) - and a Muslim of all faiths :o)
So, lesson of the day - ATTEND OUR BREAKFAST IN TWO WEEKS! - it is going to be interesting as we will attempt a public exorcism of Islam in IHOP and we'll let the Flying Spaghetti Monster do his magic!
