Thank you Sam!

Letter to a Christian Nation was released yesterday on my 25th birthday.

Sam has done it. He has armed the collective, the rational minds out there in the world with a barrage of conversational missles to launch at those that preach love and practice exclusion, etc.

So while the fragile minds of religion have "faith" to fall back on, those in the real, rational world can now lay claim to Sam's book anytime religious noise-makers choose to end a conversation for making them feel "uncomfortable".

I really think its time to take your message to some sort of documentary-style movie.

THANKS AGAIN!

Sounds like an excellent idea. Something like The Root of All Evil but aimed at a US audience.

Agreed.

If you haven’t seen “The God Who Wasn’t There” you need to. Brian Flemming did an excellent job and Sam’s actually in it quite a bit. It’s very well done.

I’d like to see Sam do something very similar…

I finally got my “The God Who Wasn’t There” dvd from Amazon this week and watched it last night. It was so well done and taught me another handful of things I didn’t know.

I’d love to see them do a Part II. There are so many speakers that could offer perspective. I’d like to hear Bart Ehrman, Richard Dawkins, maybe a couple of the billionaire philanthropists who’ve recently been stepping up to donate vast sums towards global endeavors that will benefit all mankind.


And a belated Happy B-Day to you, JL!

Thank you very much!  :D

I’m glad you’ve seen “The God Who Wasn’t There”. I was blown away by how well done it was. Kinda surprised me and came outta nowhere.

Next up: Sam Harris
