Apparently some Christians believe Jesus said, "Prepare not your foods with the fire of death...," therefore they don't want any cooked food in their diet.

Influential Illinois Republicans wanted Ingersoll to run for Governor, but on the condition that he conceal his agnosticism. Ingersoll refused, and he never held elected office.

While yesterday was the official Buy Nothing Day, sponsored by Adbusters. It's not a bad idea for more than a day. Adbusters proposed, "For 24 hours, millions of people around the world did not participate -- in the doomsday economy, the marketing mind-games, and the frantic consumer-binge that's become our culture. We paused. We made a small choice not to shop. We shrank our footprint and gained some calm. Together we said to Exxon, Nike, Coke and the rest: enough is enough. And we helped build this movement to rethink our unsustainable course."
