"Yes, the gift thing always gets me. Why can't the human race be nice to each other everyday? Instead of that one day a year where you have to be nice to that uncle who is condescending to you and that great aunt who just whinges all the time!"

"I'm with you, Ben! Although I do put out a few candles and such, just to prove I'm not a total scrooge. And, I'm also hosting our family gathering--just to eat, no gifts allowed!"

"Wow sounds like im moving to Serbia! Its great that you keep religion separate. In Australia it does feel very fake, as an atheist its just too warm to think about santa and the three wise men!"

"I like to see my family, most of them anyways.  However, the 7 hr. drive sucks, and the number of kids means I can forget about watching tv, reading or even hearing myself think.  I don't need any more stuff, and neither do my…"

"As an atheist, shouldn't you be embracing the materialistic aspect? Personally, I don't care about either the religious or the commercial sides of the holiday. I just enjoy the break from work, getting together with family, and sharing…"

"I am Atheist, but I celebrate Christmas mostly for my kids. I don't preach the bible at all. I do put up lights and a tree, I think the visual displays and colors bring happiness to many people. I think of Christmas and any other holiday i.e.…"

Christmas(yawn)

walking around the supermarket I see people I know all the time, this is because I live in a very small town down on the coast in Victoria (Australia). Every second person I see asks me what I am doing to celebrate Christmas, I say that I am an Atheist and I do not believe in the story of nativity. I am greeted so many blank stares and negative comments that I feel like I am a party pooper, I then go on to explain that I have a deep love for the nature of the world we live in and that I believe…See More

"I like what everyone is saying here, but talking on the phone to my mother last night about this topic she raised a vital point. She thinks in the end that the Judao Theists will just say that most of the bible may not be true and they just use it…"

Ted Foureagles commented on Ben Anderson's blog post Logicaust
"Dogmatic pseudo-philosophies (right now, primarily the Abrahamic religions) necessarily evolve into a "god of the gaps" as knowledge increases.  In such a situation they are like a powerful animal cornered that naturally…"

Alan Perlman commented on Ben Anderson's blog post Logicaust
"Why does religion persist? - a question every atheist must struggle with.  Suggested answers: (1) parents get first shot at programming kids; (2) orthodox of all faiths have high birth rates; (3) MUCH more money is behind religion in the US…"

"With respect to Christianity, the various religion labels under it's umbrella are stifled from meaningful change because of the ridiculous claim of infallibility of the doctrine they all share. The religions whose basic doctrine is the Bible…"

As science has developed and evolved hand over fist in the last hundred or so years. We have gone from collecting firewood to pushing a button in order to cook our nightly meal. In fact there has been so many developments in technology and science that the face of this planet will never be the same. Many basic facts that have eluded the human race over many thousands of years have been proven and explained through experiments and research.

Now I ask you this.........Has religion evolved… Continue

Hi Ben
You are so exactly right. We can all agree with the way you put it. Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where pure common sense is enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers.
We invite you to join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3600+ members.

Welcome, Ben! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Atheists in the Biological Sciences.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. You're probably aware of the threat Climate Change poses to the world's forests.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me
