ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

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.

<b>The Towering Strength of Science versus the debility of dogmatic religion</b>

The Towering Strength of Science
.
Millions of atheist scientists and other rational freethinkers know full well, through the application of unbiased commonsense and the results of millions of complex experiments and the calculations of astute experimental and theoretical physicists, that we humans inhabit a tiny part of what is a vast godless universe of immense age; and that we have good reason to infer that gods exist nowhere but in the imaginations, stories and lies of faith-driven men.

So how can bible-believers seriously defend their ever-shrinking part of the world against the supreme logic produced by elite scientists when there is no case to answer? Why are there faith-believers at all?

A principal reason is that once the fictions of faith get into people’s heads it is difficult to be rid of them. Indoctrinated when young, they indoctrinate the young of their own and of others, and the cycle of merciless irrationality continues.

These dogmatic bigots never let go—and that is because they never listen, their minds are already made up, and they are incapable of understanding and absorbing new knowledge no matter how thoroughly well-tested and proven the latter may be.

If freethinkers could only reason with the religious, there would be no religious. 
.
Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves”.
.

Only freethinkers and scientists see the universe clearly and correctly for its materiality and man’s place in it as an evolutionary accident but a marvel nonetheless.

Religionists sink inside the mental quagmire and nightmare of their own making for it is philosophically incontestable, when the evidence is well presented and the listener has a high enough level of intelligence and freedom of thought, that gods exist nowhere but inside people’s heads—and that is that.

Burnt Toast: Atheist Sees Image of the 'Birth of Earth' in a Piece of Toast

Atheist Sees Image of the 'Birth of Earth' in Burnt Toast



Yes it’s true.

This genuine picture was photographed in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, England by science atheist Dr. Terence Meaden earlier this month.

He could barely withhold his excitement.

“I was having breakfast when this piece of ciabatta toast got burnt,” he said. “Suddenly I was aware that the pattern of light and darkness across the toast resembled what could have been…

Today is the first anniversary of founding the "Origins" group

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 4:30pm 11 Comments

Today 15th September 2009 is the first anniversary of founding “Origins”.



I had joined Atheist Nexus in August 2008 and soon thought that a group discussing the ideas and problems of “origins” of any kind, whether real (through responsible scientific research, discovery and rational contemplation) or fallacious (as with unproven beliefs including the fraudulent religions and other swindles, impostures, deceits and hoaxes) would be helpful.

Thanks for the kind welcome.  I got here via a search for amateur radio atheists.  Listening to Christians on 14 MHz is a dispiriting experience!  I look forward to many years of community.

     having just read your line that "gods exist nowhere but inside peoples' heads", a belief i have come to share, i find myself wondering if you don't  know what "a meme in the noosphere" means, certainly your skepticism that i am an atheist is off-putting and confusing….

     isn't "inside peoples' heads" somewhere in existence? i believe that it is and delight in the irony that now that i've gone from youthful anglican deist, to longtime fence sitting agnostic, to out and out atheist, i can in truth prove that god exists, if only as a meme in the noosphere….

      like light being both a wave and a particle, or an electron appearing to be everywhere at once, common sense must sometimes bow to the truth of paradox????

Thank you Dr. Terence for your support ... its really difficult here but knowing the truth while you alone is better than living as an ignorance with the religious herd .

Thanx Doc for the warm welcome.

One particular interest I have is in a kind of "all-in-one" one-page refutation of theism in general and of each of its main sects/religions in particular. I've looked elsewhere and have not found such.

Do we have such a thing somewhere on this site?

At 6:19pm on April 2, 2014, Sven Andersson said…

Thanks for the invitation, Dr. Meaden. I have a frustrating subject I'm just itching to discuss. I'll see if I find the time to do that when I finally get home from work.
