Human soul

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

Tim, I wouldn't call the Atkins diet a "quack". I used to think that, but no more, once I investigated and used it. But, that's not the point of my original comment.

Chris, I'll check out your book. Thanks.

Chris Brockman , I just downloaded your book and look forward to reading it. A quick glance through it seems to contain the kinds of questions some young people ponder. Thanks for writing this.

Some atheists have other beliefs that need to be challenged, esp health-related delusions.  I have met atheists who are anti-vaxxers, believe that AIDS was created by the CIA, and the stories of promoters of quack diets like Sears, Atkins etc.

I don't enjoy destroying anyone's sensibilities, per se. I do very much enjoy giving people, and especially young people, better ways to think because, if you think about it, religion doesn't make good sense.

Offending religious sensibilities is one of my favorite activities.

What to Think About:  Philosophy for a Thoughtful Younger Generation, by Chris Brockman is up on Amazon. Brockman uses his own definition of “philosophy” as a “systematic study of who I am, what’s out there, and what should I do about it,“to arrive at suggestions for things to think about.  Each chapter ends with scenarios and questions challenging the reader to think. This book is “written from a humanist perspective,” and may offend some religious sensibilities.  It is recommended for young adults.  Chris Brockman is the author of the classic of religious skepticism for children What about gods?

The most ridiculous one of all:

We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America.

They ruined themselves and lost one of the bloodiest wars in history (up to that time), all for nothing.  Obviously, their god isn't so mighty after all.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 22, 2015 at 8:10am

In the most recent FFRF's newsletter, there was an article that absolutely astounded me (and my godless senses). Quote, "Did you know that nearly all 50 states have religious preambles affixed to their state constitutions, in braze violation of the First Amendment's decree that government cannot dictate supernatural faith?"

The writer (of article) listed the relevant clauses for each state. Nearly all used the phrase "grateful to Almighty God", as if they didn't want to be left out in looking pious.

Don't bother trying to overturn these worship clauses. Court rulings have already upheld them with flimsy reasonings.

Please welcome our newest A/N member, Mike Newdow. He's a prominant figure in the cause for atheism. He's often featured in FFRF's newsletter.

Is the Smithsonian taxpayer-supported gov't property?  If it is, the USAF is out of line.  Again.

USAF band & choir 
"Let Earth receive her KING?"  Oh, really? 
There's another video of the group playing the "Greensleeves" melody, but the choir is singing, "What Child is This?"  (Same tune)"What future human sacrifice is this," is more like it.
Sk8ey cat is haired up and hissing.
