A Letter from Our Organizer
I had so much fun last night. It was a complete success. I’m still excited, and know that we MUST do this again. I got at least 20 comments from people who said the event was excellent, very good, illuminating, etc! At one point after most people had left, a small group of elderly ladies stood in the theatre watching the slide show and talking.” Where did you get those...
Wow...It was a smash success.
Full house and lots of spontaneous laughter and applause! So many people said they enjoyed the videos we made, that the energy was great and that we were funny. I did not expect compliments. It really was a lot of fun! Sent on the TELUS Mobility network with BlackBerry

Customer: “Huh. Is it any good?”
Me: “It’s pretty popular.”

We are all born atheists. As we grow, however, we are inundated by society with the mythology surrounding gods. Some gods, we are told, are just that—myth only. Others, for some reason, we are told are real. Any examination into these gods will show not only that there are no real differences between the “fake” and “real” gods, but that there is simply no reason to believe...
