    Ha! I love that you’re going through with Spirits for Spirits. Such a great idea.

  2. Ron says:

    I wonder why you are asked people to deny the presence of Holy Spirit -God if He does not exist. Mental satisfaction, public stunt, anger towards a God who does not exist or if He does then people should at least make an honest attempt to find it.

  3. Mary says:

    I don’t think skeptics have “anger towards” some entity that many do not believe exists. Rational discourse is not necessarily anger. On many of the debates that I’ve sat through on this subject, the skeptics were intellectual, playful and quite funny; whereas, the religionists became emotional (and angry) and sometimes stomped away, like children. That kind of emotionalism is a turn off–one of the reasons why I got out of religion and stayed out.

    Any chance someone could come to Buffalo and do this? I could use a free beer…
