For fans of Carl Sagan's writings and productions like Cosmos and The Demon Haunted World. No one else in recent memory did more to bring science to the masses than Sagan. Join a group of others who enjoy his work!
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.
Welcome to this super site with bright people like yourself who recognise that religion is a fraud and gods nothing but fictions inside the heads of the credulous.
Terry Meaden (English; archaeologist, Oxford) founder of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 200 discussion topics.
We examine and review the world’s great questions including how life and humans, religion and faith, and everything else began.
We invite you to come and enjoy the discussions. http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/originsuniverselifehumankindanddarwin
