Anybody heard from some of our older members ?

 I noticed that I have not seen people like Bob Spence, Answers in Gene Simmons, CJ, Mellestad and a few of the other regulars that used to be on here lately ? 

I miss their posts and insights. 

I was wondering how they might be doing ?

  HisWillness and Kevin R

  HisWillness and Kevin R Brown ( both Canadians ) used to post here a lot and Eloise ( a panentheist from Australia ) hasn't been heard from in a long time.  SandyCane and robj ( ? ) are missing, too.  That's the only other AWOL members that I can think of at the moment.

I cant speak for CJ, But do

I cant speak for CJ, But do not worry guys, Bob is doing fine as far as I know. He calls me just about every day via phone or Skype.

Bob is more of a reader than a poster. I think he has covered the theists issues so much now it takes something really heated to erk him to the point of responding. But he just called me yesterday, I was too tired to talk to him. But he is doing fine guys.

Thanks for the update. I always enjoy Bob's posts.

          Yes, I agree.  And the other notable fact about her is that even though she espoused her panentheistic view surrounded by atheist dissenters she was sort of like one of the family ( kind of like how I view our very own Luminon  ..the honorable opposition, so to speak...)

I agree. The same could not be said for our most recent addition. The one  that fills the bandwidth with circular arguments and then pulls the "I will no longer debate you any more" when cornered. I'll be glad when that one is gone.

I guess she didn't find some us to be very divine.

or she has more of a life

or she has more of a life than most of us, which is not terribly hard.
