To our many readers who have rejected religion in favor of “science and reason”

I’m sure you saw something on the History Channel or in Time Magazine or somewhere that has you deep in thought about how the tolerant, enlightened Mayans ended their calendar in 2012.  And you wonder if you will ever get gay marriage and universal funding for mandatory abortions passed into law (or executive fiat) before the world ends. 

Well, good news:

Go here.  Click “Tables for Finding Holy Days” in the left column. Scroll down to p. 883.

You see it?  The world doesn’t end until 2089.  Enjoy.

I am so glad to have discovered this.  Sioux Falls will soon rival Mecca, Rome, Salt Lake City and other religious epicenters.  Will post a link for contributions shortly.  Oh, uh, yeah I’m all about tolerance, social justice and stuff, too.  So believe in me.  Science and reason have freed me from Christianity’s shackles.

Tim, for your listening pleasure (once you get past the ad)

Actually Tim+, The table goes thru the year 2099.

The following Table provides ready reference to the Sunday Letter of any year between A.D. 1900 and A.D. 2099.

So you have another decade !! Woo Hoo! Thanks for pointing this out in the midst of all the grim news, it sure makes me feel better that TEC will be around in 2099. Surely they will be there as the table goes thru 2099 so it must be true. If we had money to send, we would be happy to send you some.

Thanks for the smile this morning. Have a great Sunday. Now that you have been released from the shackles of Christianity, you should have plenty of time to make plans for your new “religion” and to not have to do all that worship with Christ stuff- so time consuming.

Thank you, true believers.  I appreciated the video, Michael+.  SC blu cat lady, you have seen the light of science and reason - “all that worship with Christ stuff - so time consuming.”

LOL! Of course, Timothy.  Can’t those graduate degrees in science go to waste. Now off to get ready to waste some time this morning worshiping Christ.

Walk away from the communion wine.  That’s right.  Put it down.

LOL !  Jackie. Timothy+ Hope you *wasted* some time this morning worshiping our Lord!  Hope you are feeling better. I know I am. I heard an extremely powerful sermon on the Gospel lesson for today from Mark 5.

I was disappointed the world was not ending until 2089 and now that the world will not end until 2099 - how much is one expected to endure?

A brilliant column from Walter Russell Mead.  A must-read:

Wow, Jeffersonian, that is fantastic… I hardly know what to excerpt.  Would love to share more of it on FB, etc.  So much rich stuff there… but most rewarding is his serious effort to engage as a Christian.

[9] Jeffersonian, the Mead column is truly fantastic. Thanks for posting the link!
