Some quick notes from Borders

I’m hanging out at Borders this morning while waiting to pick up my daughter after a class she’s taking. I grabbed a copy of The Annotated Origin and Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species – A Graphic Adaptation (like a graphic novel version of OTOOS) and am sipping on some coffee while hooked up to free wifi. It’s a good morning.

This isn’t my “home” Borders, so I went to the religion section to check out what they had to offer and to see how different it was from the Borders I normally frequent. This religion section is smaller, but had a nicer selection of atheist books. I did crack myself up when I noticed a section that was labeled “Christian Fiction” and thought to myself, Doesn’t that apply to this entire section?

I also saw a copy of Evolution for Dummies and considered (briefly) buying it and mailing it to Ray Comfort, but I figured that even a dumbed down version wouldn’t really help Ray… or Kirk, for that matter.

On another note, a friend of mine picked up a copy of Comfort and Cameron’s version of On the Origin of Species and is dropping it off at my house today.

It’ll be like the proverbial red-headed stepchild.

    That would seem to depend upon whether or not Christ ever existed. After reading the Jesus Puzzle (http://jesuspuzzle.humanists.net/home.htm) I concluded that there is a very high probability that Christ is entirely mythical.

      I’m pretty sure the whole “coming back from the dead” part is mythical either way. ;-P
