Andy thanks for the heads up on the bookThe Stars" by H. A. Rey you've made it sound fascinating. The sky over London, even on the best of nights isn't great, so a good book about the cosmos is always welcome. Thanks mate Stephen.
I'm not a political cartoonist. As a hobby, I just like to create art poking fun at religion on my website.
You were very fortunate to have escaped the full force of religious indoctrination, to which my mother subjected me as a child. While I appreciate that she thought it was in my best interest, I will never forgive her for it.
I will never forget the time she invited a Catholic Jesuit (they are elite branch of the RC church trained in philosophy and theology: aka "defender of the faith") to her home so he would "educate" me. I too was working on my degree in philosophy at the time and welcomed the dual.
What an asshole this priest was. Gulping my mother's scotch, he simply quoted verses from the Bible and proceeded to admonish my wonderful mother for "failing" to bring me up properly! She cried her eyes out. My poor mother. If only she could have appreciated the person she had as her son. Ah, religion. I just hate it.
One of the origins I heard about Easter is that the Bunny was chosen to represent the holiday is Arabs thought Rabits could see the before life because they were born with their eyes open.
Mythology is interesting to me. It's sickening that some see it as reality and others blindly follow the nonsense while dropping dollars in the collection plate as zeallots collect it to start religious wars, or promote anti-rational thought.
A while ago someone suggested changing the image on the Occupy Together discussion from the U.S. to something depicting occupy as a global movement. I briefly searched using google image and didn't see one I thought would work within the frame. Seeing you're a graphic designer. I thought you may know of one already available.
I didn't expect you to become involved with the Occupy movement. That would be a major undertaking. I wasn't asking you to design one yorself. As far as I can tell the creator of the discussion Ava Wilson hasn't contributed for a long time (2012). I sent her an email after our exchanges to see if she if she's still active. Sometimes people drop out of forums for a long time - if not forever.
I read and follow the information presented by the occupy movement, but am not involved other than posting information I come across to Occupy Together.
I'm a new volunteer moderator and am still learning, but am sure I can change the Occupy Together Logo. Everything else would be kept the same including the creator. Doing so may keep the discussion up to date without starting a new one. No changes would be made without collaberation with the other moderators.
One of the originators of A/U is a graphic designer. He and others who started A/U may have burn out which is why I became a moderator. One of best advantages, along with the great people here is that it's commercial free. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding and enjoy reading your posts.
