RE: What Are You Currently Reading?
I cheat and listen to books on tape. I don't have time to sit and read, so I hope this counts. Blush

I just finished up Frank Schaffer's "Sex, Mom and God," which was both very enlightening with respect to the early right wing crazy movement, and frustrating as he is still involved with church for some reason.

I'm listening to Tiny Fey's "Bossypants" and Catherine Valente's "Deathless."

Next up will be David Eagleman's "Incognito."

We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers.

The Bible. <= Fail and hell no.

Just watching some history channel documentaries, useless for now but useful for later. Smile

I'm currently reading "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. Anyone else read it? It's pretty long, like I have been reading long novels all year this year, but this is longer still... So far it's okay.

Currently reading Catch-22. That book will drive you crazy and then make you sane again in a single chapter. It's good stuff.

Honestly
I'm reading the Bible, all of the way through.

I'm agnostic, but I want to know the facts that I am against so that I can back them up, without looking like I don't have a clue of what I'm talking about.

I'm also reading

"Crank"-Ellen Hopkins

"Zombie Blondes"-Brian James

"I Have a Wicked Stepmother, So Where's My Prince"-Mellissa Kantor

Chariots of the Gods - Erich Von Daniken

While most of the stuff in his book is considered bogus, I find it interesting to entertain the thought of E.T. having contact with humans.

About the Holy Bible by Robert G. Ingersoll

A wonderfully written in-depth critique of the Holey Babble.

Available free as an e-book form Gutenberg.org :

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/37703

For those who don't know the Christian holy book, it's a great chance to learn a few truths about it.

I'd never seen/opened a bible until 2 years ago, when I decided to do some research and I have to say I was pretty disgusted to think that there are are 25% of the people on the planet(Christians) who are potential followers of the bible nonsense!. Hope you are enjoying your read! You might want to see my post about Robert Ingersoll. He makes some good observations that can be used against bible lovers.

"To think of what the world has suffered from superstition, from religion, from the worship of beast and stone and god, is
almost enough to make one insane."

I got this far: Ecclesiastes is the most thoughtful book in the Bible. It was written by an unbeliever—a philosopher—an agnostic. Take out the interpolations, and it is in accordance with the thought of the Nineteenth Century. In this book are found the most philosophic and poetic passages in the Bible.

Yeah, he knows what he's talking about. A good link for those whose minds are not closed. Believers, however, would just give it a "bah humbug."
