Neil de Grasse Tyson presentation about intelligent design

I have been rereading Fitzroy Maclean's Eastern Approaches as well as watching several documentaries on Josef Broz (Tito). Though flawed like all people Tito seems like he was a genuinely good man who used the Yugoslav communist state to prevent the kind of violent ethnic division that marked the Balkans before and after his time in power. A leader of a small country that stood up to Hitler and Stalin as well. I think the likes of him are probably too rare in world history. Any excesses he was guilty of in the early years after the war should be put in the context of the region and from about 1950 until his death in 1980 the area probably enjoyed the best years it has ever had un terms of standard of living (both economic and in terms of peace.)

I do not speak for all liberal Christians. Only myself

I believe in evolution

I do not believe the Bible is a science book or without error

If I say God bless you or your are doing the lords work to an atheist I mean it as a recognition of common values (if a person of a an animist faith told me they were praying for me in their own way, I would be honored)

I do not prosletize

I apparantly insulted some atheists by thanking my God for them as they share my values on social justice. Please accept my apologies.

I had a great exchange with Trotsy tonight and I hope to build on that.

I am a member of the LGBT community and for me Christ is important because he lets me know I am his child and accepted as such.

Anyone who has been offended by anything I have done, please forgive me.

Love you all,

Thst is all.

luke10: 25- 28

25 Then an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. He said, “Teacher, what must I do to get eternal life?”26 Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you understand from it?”27 The man answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’[a] Also, ‘Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.’”28 Jesus said, “Your answer is right. Do this and you will have eternal life.”

pornography and erotica

What is the difference?

Lets have a real academic discussion. While anti porn folks and hard core free speech folks will certainly contribute. I am more interested in the opinions art scholars.
