"I agree with B-Girl. There is indeed a correlation between level of education, religiosity, and number of children/no children.
In addition, I'd like to bring up psycho-social connotations. Without the belief of an afterlife, all matters…"
"What a fantastic article. It's almost funny the amount of negative comments she receives stem from pure jealousy. It almost seems as if those with children impose their views on the childless in a selfish and sad attempt to justify their own…"
"Cat Proximity: http://xkcd.com/231/
(I think it's actually primitive-brain social intelligence, taking joy in being near the kitty, and overriding some of the usual self-censorship.)
Looking at the other xkcd's people…"
"the major religions of today are epically interesting; just the same as any other mythology. it has implications in all sciences and social sciences: psychology, biology, anthropology, physiology, sociology, etc. since they all are nonsense, what…"
"Well... I'm not sure which type of BB (forums posting software) that's used here, but in most cases, it's easy enough to change the coding. This could mean reconfiguring the skin or placement of buttons so that whatever feature you…"
"Agreed. Although atheism does not cause peace, parcontre, religion is cited as a reason for war. Therefore, by default, there is a greater chance of wars occurring in/from religious nations and a decreased chance from the majority of non-religious…"
"Extremely interesting correlation. Thank you for posting this. Perhaps the link is as follows (speculation only): There is a massively high incidence of warring on a civil, global and interpersonal level in the name of religion. People who believe…"
"Thanks for posting this. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it's already been said here; not the best made film (the acting can be stronger and script quite a bit tighter to feel like a courtroom drama) but definitely a gripping concept. Could…"
"Yeah! I was excited by the fact that I could see a real movie done in the fashion of what my friends and I would discuss on a regular basis. It was a relief to know there exist creative minds like that. Not to mention, creative minds who were…"
"I love that movie!
It's in my top 5.
I guess my appreciation is partially based on the idea of something other than a standard movie extraviganza, it was so cheaply done and takes place in a single room but holds your attention."
"I agree that if this were the case, we'd have to assume a lot things true. I think one of the most interesting points of this film is that, having seen all religion and folklore from all 4 corners of the earth, that the main character came to…"
Greetings, Boo! I see you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since April. We have a new group where you might feel more at home. Please consider joining Hang With Friends , where we can share our stories and laugh, and discuss anything on our minds.
Yeah, I hear ya! Don't think they get the point, you can believe what you want, just don't force it on others...especially by putting it in law. Tempted to tell them that they have changed my perspective on the issue...only in the wrong direction they'd like. I really did used to stand up for them here in AB (people here really do have a horrid opinion on Quebec). Not so sure anymore. Oh well, I guess I can still point out there are some sane ones like yourself there, at the very least (^_-).
That's a good introduction to yourself, Boo. Welcome to this friendly meeting place with its thousands of freethinkers who recognise how religions deceive and control vulnerable people beginning with innocent children.
