Dd started at her senior college today . Her Classical  Studies teacher said in his introduction to the course that he was a practicing Atheist, thank god but even so it was important for him to let go of his belief system when studying the classics….good for him! (and I do thank God!)

 On a different slant(or is it) in our reading of “The Last Battle” this morning:

 “You see,” said Aslan.”They will not let us help them. …Their prison is only in their minds, yet they are in that prison; and so afraid of being taken in that they cannot be taken out.”

I think a lot of atheists are in that position.

I hope she's happy at the college. What year is she doing?

I have always found the phrase "practicing Atheist" to be an oxymoron. Kind of like organizing anarchists. :o)

I thought I would check in on all of my friends Down Under. I'm not sure where you are in relation to the fires, but I hope you are safe.

Peace and Laughter,
Cristina
