2004 Presentations (Communicative Events)
Of science and religion I have little to say today. I imagine there are those born and raised as atheists, those who convert to atheism, and those for whom, like me, atheism—I guess I would call mine atheistic paganism—came like a sort of salvation compared to the emphasis on Satan and hell that I was raised with. At the same time, anything that makes anyone's life more pleasurable, not to say bearable, without at the same time making someone else's less so, seems to me a gorgeous thing. Of love I have a little more to say. I'm definitely for it; in fact I believe that the cash reward for introducing me to an eligible gentleman just went up last week. This afternoon, however, I thought I'd look at love and obstacles in terms of family and of self.
