Oprah Tells An Atheist She Believes In God. The Atheist Responds Like A Christian. Or Any Human.

Confession time: I'm an atheist. PLEASE DON'T CLOSE THIS WINDOW YET! By being an atheist, I am in no way judging others' beliefs. I just lack them. Same with Diana Nyad, the world class swimmer and all-around awesome human being. We still have moral codes, just like everyone else. We just are slightly different. Which Oprah didn't think was possible. However, Oprah recovered nicely toward the end and really listened, which was a pleasant surprise. Yay for civilized conversation!

I would really love it if you could find it in your heart to share this. Everyone thinks we're all dead inside and can't appreciate the beauty of the universe. But we really do. And we have real morals and everything. So please share this. And if you liked what Diana had to say, you could Like her on Facebook. I'll owe you one.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
