Congrats

I wanted to congratulate the entire RRS. I saw you guys on youtube then nightline. You guys are good for the atheist and skeptic movements. I'm also from philadelphia and it's good to know that people from my area are doing such great things.

I've been skepical of religious claims for a long time and I never thought i'd really see religion being questioned out in the open like it is today and I'm 28. I pretty much thought that religion would just be around and pretty much unquestioned except maybe at small forums. So again I think you guys are doin a great job.

Thanks so much, dr3! I hope

Thanks so much, dr3!

I hope this doesn't sound too um... Jim Bakker-ish... but so much of what we do depends on contributors, I just have to do it.  If you aren't aware, Sapient just spent several thousand dollars from his ever dwindling savings account for a new server to handle our ever-growing bandwidth.  He's also been putting $25 a day into advertising.  We've got some money coming in from clicks, but it's not nearly enough to sustain us.

If you love what we're doing, please consider becoming a subscriber.  Even the bronze level ($3/month) helps.  When we get the whole site moved over to the new version of drupal, we'll have some pretty spiffy perks for bronze, and some really good ones for silver and gold.  (And you'll get the badge!)

If you want to contribute specifically to ADVERTISING or SERVER FEES, you can earmark a donation for either of those as well. 

Again, thank you for your post and your support.

Thanks so much.  Isn't

Thanks so much.  Isn't even cooler to think how we're ending religion out of our homebase: the city of brotherly love.  Definetly hang around, we need you as part of the movement.  We're winning and we will continue to.  Don't give up hope even if it looks like you should.

   Careful with that 

   Careful with that  "champagne" Brian , not a good choice. Bad headache hang overs. Wine too. All the sweet alcohol stuff is a NO. Go with the beer, or whatever Hitchens' drinks! Google knows about booze ....  I KNOW a little !

Don't forget to take our B vitamins , really Smile

I love this RRS man , all should learn to PARTY ! Work for FUN only !  Bob Black !  http://www.zpub.com/notes/black-work.html

LOUDER !  I must get rich
