    A question was raised in another thread in the Atheist Study Group as to whether Dr. Jackson was an atheist. I thought that question was worthy of more discussion since its answer leads to an important distinction. Unfortunately, I am currently hospitalized with only access to a Windows 7 smartphone whose copy paste between windows feature I have yet to master. But, there is a video on YouTube of Dr. Jackson speaking on Afrikan Atheism.

    Jackson is the author of "Christianity Before Christ". In the video, he makes a distinction between theistic supernatural religion and Afrikan religion. He then makes a distinction between Atheism and Afrikan Atheism. Perhaps someone with a 'real' computer could post a link to the video? It goes a long way towards explaining what an Atheist is.
