    Enjoying your time? Where is this? Still San Fran? Are you still thinking of settling there? That would be a big loss for us here. So when are you coming back?

    Too many questions I know but it’s just coz you’re missed hon :*

    Thanks sweetie, this is Mountain View CA, about 40 miles south of SF. The last two pictures are in foothill college campus Los Altos. And yes, I would definitely like to settle here, it all depends on how much I could afford. But regardless of my final destination, the world is becoming so small, so I’ll always be around :*

    Welcome dear, and thanks for the compliment, although many wouldn’t think of my posts as being decent :p
    As for books; I think DA may be a better help in this area. But let me give you some of the ones I read and think would help. If you are looking for religious books about the true history of Islam and it’s scriptures then“why I am not a Moslem” by Ibn Warraq would be a great help, Christianity;“Why I Am Not a Christian” by Bertrand Russel. I loved “The Masks of God”; by Joseph Campbell as well.
    But if you were looking for a deeper read, then I would recommend“The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins and “Why Darwin Matters” by Michale Sheremer. Carl Sagan’s book “ Cosmos” as well as his DVD’s were also enlightening. But you have to have an open mind to be able to accept the ideas presented in those books.
    Right now I’m reading “Holy Madness” by Georg Feuerstein, I’m half way through and the book is very interesting where it touches rituals of most religions including the Far Eastern ones.
    I hope that was of some help 😀

    Thanks for your well wishes Lady J :*

    Sweet Luloo
    I’m having a great time, although very busy, thanks sweetie :*

    I’m supposed to be back on the 9th of Jan, but may extend depending on my mission here. So when is the meeting scheduled? Love you girl :*

    The first picture was taken last Sunday in front of a church as a tribute to the natives in downtown Mountain View. I came to learn that this ceremony takes place every Sunday after the services. What a way to attract people to religion, ha?

    AyyA: Thank you for the information, and surely the myth-mongers – regardless of what they preach – will let no stone unturned in order to attract new subjects (including of all things: gambling cough – “bingo”! 🙂
    On the subjects of books that trace the origins of the different belief systems, I think the list you proposed is perfect. In our society and culture and for obvious reasons, references that trace the historical origins of beliefs simply do not exist. But one can build upon the junctions between the different faiths and find books on the historical origins of the scriptures in other faiths.
    Works by Richard Dawkins, Paul Kurtz, Michael Shermer and Martin Gardner are highly recommended, and many of them tackle skepticism in general. Quickly, Kurtz’ “Science and Religion” and Shermers “How We Believe” come to mind, as well as the Joseph Campbell / Bill Moyers book and series: “The Power of Myth”.
