I’m not the only atheist who’s tamed wild rodents! This video by Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, was on his Facebook page this morning, but I persuaded him to put it on YouTube so I could embed it. On his FB page was this caption:
I have a little friend. The past 2 years, while reading and writing in the back yard, my 17 millionth cousin has been keeping me company.
He added in an email:
Darwin dug up worms in his backyard; I’m observing chipmunks. There are three other chipmunks out there who are not as brave. Yet.
We have a challenge here for reader Diana MacPherson, who feeds chipmunks, but not by hand. . .
Look at him pack those peanuts into his cheeks!
