Happy 1st Birthday American Creation!!!

Happy 1st Birthday, American Creation!!! It was only a year ago that the four original contributors to this blog started emailing each other in a brainstorming effort to create an effective forum on the topic of religion and the founding. One year later here we are, having survived through the ups and downs that only the "blogosphere" provides.

Yes, after 620 posts, over 10,000 comments, and a wide assortment of contributors, commentators and readers, American Creation is still standing!!! Thank you to EVERYONE who has made American Creation so much fun. A special thanks to our readership, whose comments, interest and participation are what keep this blog going. Thank you to the various contributors (past and present). Your material is the "lifeblood" of the blog. Thank you for taking the time to produce quality material that is both enjoyable and intellectually stimulating. Hopefully we can raise the bar even higher in year #2 and produce even better postings!

Again, thank you to EVERYONE for your continued support of American Creation! We hope to be around for many years to come!

From my end, it's been great. We are what true diversity, intellectual diversity, should look like.

Thank you one and all! It's my sincere hope that we can keep this thing going until our tickers decide to give out...then maybe we can continue the debate in the Hereafter/Nirvana/heaven/whatever. Hopefully by then we can have the likes of Jefferson himself to shed light on the issue...assuming that he isn't buring in hell for not accepting a particular brand of faith...oh well. In that case we'd all be screwed!

But yes, thanks are in order. This really is worth celebrating!

Thanks for the praise, Pinky. You and other faithful commentators have meant a great deal to this blog, so thanks to you and the others as well!

Personally, it seems like a lot longer than a year!

I've learned a lot more here than I'd expected, and am looking forward to learning more.
