“Welcome to the 182nd Post of Zingcreed, the totally unique Christian/Atheist blog where I think aloud about religion and life. No holds are barred in this personal polemic, and I hope you get something out of it!” Peter Turner, M.A., M.Sc.

I want to thank you for reading and commenting on what I have written in Zingcreed since I started it one year ago. The response has been positive and encouraging, and I shall probably carry on with it for another year or more. I still have about a hundred topics listed in a notebook. I think some of them will surprise you!

Here are some readers’ comments:-
“This is an extraordinary document. Would you mind if I shared it with other members of the ….team?”
“I thought yours was very close to our vision of truth.”
“I must say this is a lively attempt to fill in the gaps in the traditional Christian creeds. The Zingcreed Manifesto is just the sort of re-working and re-imagining of the old, old story that we should all be doing in our spare time!”
“You write clearly and persuasively. I came across your blog by chance, it’s simply fresh and clear!”

Cheers, guys!

Here is a list of the top ten most popular Zingcreed Posts. The one at the top had twice as many viewers as the second on the list.

Some Posts lie unfinished. I aim to rectify that, especially those dealing with Tolstoy, Gandhi and non-violence. I’m planning to check out a few ancient ‘sages’ too, to see how they compare with Jesus. Hope to see you there!
