Blaise replied to Alice's discussion Sam Harris Neuroscientist & Vipassana Meditation in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"No, I'm not confusing the two, I was just giving an example.    I was trying to point out that panic attacks, obsessive thought trains, emotional melt-downs, general anxiety, etc, are all things that can be ameliorated with a regular…"

Blaise replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Researchers Say More than 20% of Atheist Scientists are Spiritual in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Strictly speaking, this statement, "True atheists make no allowance for any kind of supernatural nonsense" is false.    Atheism refers to a lack of belief in gods, not a lack of belief in any supernatural concepts.  Many…"

Hi all, I've been popping in to lurk for a couple of years, and finally decided to register! I hope I'll be a positive addition to the community. I'm afraid I don't have a great "how I became an atheist" story.  I was born not believing, and Italian mother and catholic school efforts notwithstanding, I never really saw any reason to start.  I never really thought of myself as an atheist until college, when I was first exposed to evangelists, fundamentalists, witnesses, and other wing-nuts…See More
