With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More

Doug Bates replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion Fighting creationism with public scorn and mockery--which is what it deserves, no less in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I also love pointing out the atrocities as well like the Canaanites' slaughter and the disagreement between all the Genesis stories. They can't really fix those. I also mention that the burden of proof is on them and that I will be happy…"

Doug Bates replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion Fighting creationism with public scorn and mockery--which is what it deserves, no less in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Interesting point. I agree that the leaders are certainly an easier target for ridicule since their words are public record. However, I still like to make my little digs at my friends. I love breaking their religion down to "God sacrificed…"

Doug Bates replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion Fighting creationism with public scorn and mockery--which is what it deserves, no less in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I mock them more and more. If I see one of my friends saying grace, I'll casually ask them to tell their imaginary friend I said hi. I am currently involved in a debate with our Battalion Chaplain about evolution. I told him they could start…"

Doug Bates replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion RELIGION IS A GIANT FRAUD: Origins of Religion, Part 19. in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"What gets me the most is how hated atheists are by the religious. I saw a poll that suggests that most people would not vote for an atheist regardless of his or her views. I guess it's because we challenge their beliefs. We could destroy their…"

That's a wonderful family scene--and rather similar to mine.
Welcome to this great site and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is,
and that gods are merely fictions filling up valuable space inside the brains of the credulous.

Terry Meaden originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
