The Appalachian Women’s Museum has kicked off its first fundraiser since reaching an agreement with the Town of Dillsboro to restore and preserve the 1908 Farmhouse at the Monteith Farmstead.
Supporters can purchase “Coal for the Holidays” from Nancy Tut’s, HopBerry, and Bradley’s in Dillsboro, or It’s By Nature, the Chamber of Commerce, and Signature Brew in Sylva. Contributions can also be made at www.appwm.org.
In recent years, we have seen a stream of books and authors promoting atheism. Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy; comedic columnist Dave Barry; J.G. Ballard author of numerous works of science fiction; the Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci; John Fowles, author of The French Lieutenant’s Woman; Christopher Hitchens, renowned columnist and author of God Is Not Great: these are only a few of the late 20th century writers who have spoken or written of their disbelief in a god. These writers, and many millions of others, including your reviewer, assumed that societies around the globe were becoming more secular and less religious.
