The Palo Alto seventh day adventist church oftenasks me to teach
a doctrine class, even tho I have stated very publicly there my
atheism. The atheist provides a very educational perspective
for believers. Im a very popular teacher there. As we have
pointed out before, the fundamentalist and the atheist are more
or less adjacent to each other on the ideological scale. spike
