Eternal Life: A New Vision (Bishop John Shelby Spong
I'm as Atheist as they come (okay, maybe more like Sam Harris, not quite like Dawkins) but I was listening to CBC radio and author John Shelby Spong was talking about God/religion/afterlife and his book "Eternal Life". I found his views fascinating and from the way he talked he sounded like he had seen the truth and would be an Atheist, if not for his "love of the Church". One thing he said was (along the lines of) "I see THROUGH religion, not past it". So I downloaded chapter one of the ebook (free) and think I will hit up the library to get the book and read some more. Anyone else read it?

What is that supposed to mean??? To me it sounds just like another one of those "I can see something that you can't see cons".

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.
