Dear Cynical-C

I get email:

Hi Chris,

I’ve been reading your blog for some time now and I love it. I want to thank you for being such an outspoken voice on atheism. I want to ask you if you ever go to any atheism meetings or if you can recommend any in the Boston area.


Thanks Mike. To answer your question I had to think long and hard to find out how bored I would have to be before I went to an atheist meeting. I think perhaps if my wife was out of town, my friends all died, my cat had really bad diarrhea while all the electricity went out leaving my tv and computer useless and if Amazon had come into my house and removed all the books in my personal library because of some copyright problem (leaving a refund in my Amazon account of course) and if all my musical instruments were broken along with the disappearance of every writing instrument and paper product and the closing of all music clubs, comedy clubs, cafes and if my telescope was useless due to all the stars in the sky suddenly going black I may be bored enough to go to an atheist meeting. Provided that it was close to my house. Although, after all that it may be wiser to go to a Seventh Day Adventist meeting.
