    POD & J,

    Did you think it was great and liked it because “blue” is the clear winner?

    I wasn’t really looking at it as a race. I’m not convinced that the number of adherents to any ideology makes it a clear “winner.” It is interesting that you focused on xianity. I thought it was great because it showed in a simple, visual form the expansion of some world religions over history. Although it excluded the so called animistic and indigenous faith traditions I though it made a clear portrait of the other world religions . It also showed quickly patterns of growth and that over the past three hundred years there has been an incredible expansion and contraction of faiths.

    I’m sure that my experience informs my viewing of this simple film on multiplication. I was trained to be a Christian missionary, and when I rejected the necessity of “bringing others to Jesus” I quit being interested in xianity’s multiplication. The more that I studied the Bible, other people’s faith traditions and friends who had no faith tradition at all I found it difficult to believe that Jesus followers own the corner on truth.

    Thanks for the challenging question.

    Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!

    Right now it sounds like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
