Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
You may or may not know, but I like to preach to atheists on twitter. When I read their posts, I find a common theme
We're just as 'good' as people who are Christians
We have morals
We have standards
We live fulfilling lives.
So, I thought it might be interesting to have some discussions on this.
I am arranging for 3 Christians and 3 atheists to meet once a week to talk about our lives - with or whithout God as the case may be. These will be non-confrontational talks.. To compare. To talk. To encounter each other.
If you want to keep posted on the schedule, simple post on this discussion. I will be posting the time and dates of the discussion. It will be web-cast so you can listen either live or a recorded version.
Thanks for your interest!

Well it looks like this wasn't quite as professionally arranged as I assumed it was. This is the first I've heard about using a toll free number rather Skype, which was the method I originally agreed to use with Juanita and the method that would make it easier to record the conversation. The conference call option on there works very well.
It's 8PM GMT as I write this. If you can get everyone together to use Skype in between now and, let's say, 10PM GMT then I'm still happy to be involved, but otherwise I think we're looking at a reschedule for another time—at least as far as my being involved goes.
Good questions, Angie.
Can we get one more atheist to propose questions and then get the three Christian's questions in before it's too late, so we have a chance to dispute / approve of any late changes?
It's the implication that you seem to equate bestiality (between a person and a non-person) with homosexuality (between two consenting persons) that offends me, Juanita. I can't speak for Jim, but from what I know of him, I'd guess this is why he was offended as well.
Juanita said:Jim and Angie,
I am surprised at your response regarding the question about bestiality.
How do I know what you think about this? Some people think it is OK. Could launch into a story to illustrate, but I will spare you that.
And, if I don't know - wouldn't you be happy to have an opportunity to help the rest on the panel and the audience understand that that this is not something that you would think was a good thing? If it offends you to ask the question, I don't have a problem with dropping it.
