I've tried not to be hostile towards theism, not that I think it is something to be tolerated or protected, but bc I once was a theist.  I know that if an anti-theist like Hitchens would get going I…Continue

What I hate about theists is that they invade your space and ask if you are saved by the blood of Bubbles (aka Jesus Christ)?

I have been reading through the posts. Very good graphics and I like the 8 premises Joan. Prayer is futile. I agree.

Hell, yeah, I'll call a doctor ... and when you've got the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals within shooting distance, that actually MEANS SOMETHING!

That was an excellent alternative, and I'm glad there was family consensus.  Death is prime-time for religious folks.  Lots of fear and obedience.

When I lost my in-laws, there was no funeral....just a celebration of life with lots of photos & video of the great times we all had during their lives. It affirmed how happy they were as a couple, & how well we were all treated by them both.

It's regrettable that atheists have to develop strategies for dealing with believers.  But their strategies for dealing with us - torture, murder, condemnation, ostracism -- have been well-practiced for millennia.  We're newcomers to the argument and have to play catch-up.  I'm thinking of George Carlin's challenge to God to smite him and his audience.  God decided to do neither, surprise, surprise. 

And how do I deal with my Judaism-lite family (I keep thinking ahead to Mom's funeral), whose beliefs are shaky and practices superficial?  I love these people, but I have just as much contempt for this as for hard-core believers.

The first bit of evidence that astronomy, as defined by ancients, was based on old myths and stories and religious dogma. Over centuries, even more than a millennium, the church opposed any thought other than the Earth is  the center of the universe and it was created for the benefit of human beings.  

When I realized astronomy had been able to break the code of movement of the stars and even of the size of the universe I realized the notions about human beings could be wrong as well. Am I really created to serve and love god? is my purpose to be a sacrificial lamb to others? is my meaning bound up in submitting to some high power/husband? 

The astronomy question has been around since at least 500 B.C. and we are still learning of the size and scope of the universe. Hubble  discovered the expanding universe in 1927 and we still learn new things each day. 

"In 2000, Pope John Paul II issued a formal apology for all the mistakes committed by some Catholics in the last 2,000 years of the Catholic Church's history, including the trial of Galileo among others.

Pope says sorry for sins of church

There are a few more churches and religious who need to offer their sorrow for sins committed in the name of their gods.
