Alvin Koh replied to Vest's discussion Is it wrong in Singapore if we voice out openly on forums/blogs that god is not real and that religion can cause delusions? in the group Singapore Atheists
"Personally, I see atheistic arguments as a 'lesser evil' than a religious person preaching sedatiously against other religions. The latter is certainly chargable in Singapore from the recent case where a Christian couple was persecuted for…"

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

My parents are Buddhists (involving chinese deities) which is very common in multi-religious Singapore. Fortunately, they have never imposed religion on us (the children). At a rather young age of 10 or thereabouts, I questioned the types of religions and wanted to know how people confirm their belief is the truth (versus the others). I was told by my mother that she does not know either. I am thankful that she was so honest. It was rational to deduce that with such uncertainty, it serves no reason for me to follow suit.

Two of my younger siblings are members of a one of the largest churches in Singapore apparently preaching the prosperity gospel. When I first found out that my younger brother was attending church more than 10 years ago, I recalled debating him on the absurdity of 6-day creationism, the lack of dinosaurs, the likelyhood that religion is a man-made creation. He could not give convincing answers and told me to approach his church cell leader who's versed in theology. He said he will stand steadfast because he 'felt' God had answered his prayers. I asked him for evidence and he did/would not produce any plausible explanation. He is still a christian today and both him and wife have already baptised my niece when she was a year old. Recently, I took an opportunity to have a discussion with my christian siblings about religion. Sadly, my younger brother thinks it's absolutely absurd that humans are of common descent with Chimpanzees.

Me too. Atheist since birth.
Welcome to this superb site and its bright people like you who recognise religion for what it is---a giant fraud, and gods mere fictions inside the heads of unknowing believers.
