I should probably translate some Greek to stay in shape but I don't know what to translate.

What about... Euthyphro?

I really enjoyed some bits of St. John of Damascus' Sacra Parallela. There's plenty of topics in there to choose from. Also, it's quite straightforward Greek.

Penn Gillette is my favorite atheist by far.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I strongly dislike Ayn Rand and disagree with Penn Jillette (sorry 'bout the mispelling) on just about anything, but I like how he thinks through what he says before he says it and isn't afraid to disagree with others who he may have much in common with.  He says what he thinks and lets the chips fall where they may.
