  - "This is a question mainly for atheists..."  omega minimo   Apr-06-10 12:35 AM   #21 
  - Perhaps because the word contains "theist" and because  MineralMan   Apr-06-10 02:47 PM   #26 
  - So, in summary so far, zero secular candidate organizations nominated.  ironbark   Apr-06-10 05:05 AM   #23

           - It very much exists on a local basis.  HuckleB   Apr-06-10 10:43 PM   #38 
           - Oh, but don't you see,  darkstar3   Apr-06-10 10:45 PM   #39 
              - Alas, I am starting to see that.  HuckleB   Apr-06-10 11:00 PM   #40 
           - I dont believe anyone should be surprised or alarmed  ironbark   Apr-07-10 12:25 AM   #41 
              - More BS.  HuckleB   Apr-07-10 09:46 AM   #49 
                 - When you misrepresent what I said you do indeed provide "More BS"  ironbark   Apr-08-10 01:55 AM   #55
