Hi Steve, I enjoyed the discussion you had the other day on The Place. You're always a pleasure to listen to, not only because I like your perspectives, but you also speak so well and are easy to understand. Of course, Michael Dowd was the primary guest this time and this was the first time I've heard of him or anything about him. His ideas are refeshing in my opinion, but I feel he seems to be in too much of rush to express his views. I wish he was as good a speaker as you, or at least if he'd slow down a bit, and inserted more pauses, people in his audience like me could follow along better and absorb more. The first time I ever heard anyone express ideas remotely similar to Dowd's was a brief contribution by Loyal Rue during the 2006 Beyond Belief Conference. I was riveted to Loyal Rue's talk, but was dismayed that no one seemed interested in his ideas and there was no discussion of them later on. I love what you and others do to debate the issues about religion and atheism, and I believe it's important, not because it's likely that you will persuade entrenched theists, but because you might reach those who are undecided or harbor doubts. It's important that the theistic preachings that they are bombarded with are countered with opposing voices. On the other hand, actually solving the world's problems and building bridges among the various faiths and cultures including the secularists needs action. Dowd and possibly others like Dowd are beginning to sow seeds that could sprout into effective action, but lots of work needs to be done in organizing people and prioritizing targets upon which to focus such action. Can you follow up on any of this with any ideas of your own? Thanks for what you do Steve. chasburf
