[QUOTE=costrel;99900]Godman,

I invite you to read one of my favorite 20th century U.S. authors, Meridel Le Sueur, who happens to be a Communist. Her books are simply wonderful, especially Salute to Spring and Rites of Ancient Ripening.[/QUOTE]

I know you weren't talking to me, Costrel, but I have added those books to my "must read" list!  :D
Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

I don't remember one.  The one I keep is a personal one.  However, I am quite sure a must read list would be a welcome addition.  To the Entertainment board if no where else!  :D

Since I'm a dedicated "Free Thinker,"
I appreciate SUGGESTED Readings,
but NOT "MUST Reads" ...

No difference on the atheist boards.  Atheists always read MUST as LOL.

I am in favor of must reads.  What I object to, over all, is must not reads.  There is something to be gleaned from everything, even things that, overall, are utter garbage.  :)

Interestingly, I think you'll find that MOST athesists here already have a significant exposure to various religious writings. I, for one, don't need any more.
Reverend Spith
Savior of Humanity
Secular Messiah

Do not assume that which you seek to discover.
