BAM/HH

From: Jason
Sent on: Monday, April 23, 2007 11:24 PM
We can still make that trip to Brookline if you like, but I've been to  
Israel and lived under a synagogue for 2 weeks, so I know there is  
certainly some religion left.  Still...  I think there are some  
opportunities.

I think one other good thing from the conference (from what I hear),  
is that the humanists saw that the atheists are the core of the  
nontheist movement.  I'm a big supporter of humanism, but humanism  
itself arises from nontheism, so even though they are in a good  
position to interface between nontheism and theism, I think they still  
need to 'keep it real'...  I sometimes tell people that the Christians  
will try to save your soul, and I'm trying to save your humanity.  At  
least you actually have humanity to save.
