I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

Oh of course!

Here's a good one! The dream of all the godbots on here!

Darth Vader: Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
Admiral Motti: Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the rebels' hidden fortress...
[Vader makes a pinching motion and Motti starts choking]
Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Still ashamed of your religion yes? I must say I enjoy that we have so much power over you that you refuse to say what your religious beliefs are around us.

Go to Coral Castle.
A frail, sickly man the size of a petite woman, in his 50's, quarried and moved 1000 of that 1100 tons of rock pretty much within 2 years, all by himself. He only moved about 100 tons from the original location. That is where they get the 28 years. It was much, much less. He had a 10 ton winch. It weighed more than him.
Interesting ;)

"A mans home is his castle"
In Loveland, Ohio

http://www.lovelandcastle.com/about.html

Did You Know Harry Andrews:

Graduated from Colgate University.

Enlisted in the Army during WWI even though he was a conscientious objector.
He didn't object to war itself, he didn't like the weapons of modern warfare. So, Harry enlisted as a nurse.

Was the oldest living Notary Public in Ohio...and he never charged more than a quarter for his service.

Was a well published author, including a guide book he wrote at the bequest of the U.S. Immigration Department to aid those seeking citizenship. A copy of which is on display at the castle.

Also made the road you take down to the castle. Buses cannot make it down this road still today!
Grew vegetables year round in hotbeds of his own design. They were heated by railroad lanterns!

Hid his secret room in the garden. The entrance was one of the arches in the arch wall. it was only discovered after it collapsed from years of neglect...Even the knights didn't know it was there!

Had an amazing 187 I.Q.

Atheists seem unhappy with their influence in 21st century America.
It may have peaked in the mid 20th century.
