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.

I wish a Merry IsaacNewtonMas to everyone, everywhere.

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.

There have been 175 discussion… Continue

I appreciate your greeting. My response is late but better than never which is exactly when god will bring me back from death. I think that finding a way to thwart or bypass death would be at least one of the most important things that could ever happen next to keeping archives of history and knowledge intact even after the universe itself had faded into oblivion. I hope to learn whatever I can and somehow contribute along these lines if it would or could ever be possible. I have hope and silly ideas that keep me entertained. Perhaps a part of the answer lies in being able to merge consciousness with inorganic matter. You're welcome to message me, I've spoken extensively with "different" sorts of theists but I'm fairly new at not believing in theism and conversing with others who do not believe either.

Hello Dr Meaden and thank you for welcoming me into this quite diverse group. I have already visited The Godless Gardener and have much in common with many there. I see I am in good academia company and this is very helpful for my inquisitive nature. I was never afforded a formal secondary education, but that has not hindered my hunger for answers.

There have now been three Supreme Court cases dealing with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) as it pertains to federal laws. A review of the opinions show that RFRA was strongly supported by 8 of 8 justices in Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita (2005), by 9 of 9 justices in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (2014) and by 9 of 9 justices in Holt v Hobbs (2015). Thus, the time is ripe for Atheists to challenge being essentially forced to bear the message, "In God We Trust" – in violation of their religious beliefs - as the price to pay for simply choosing to carry the nation's currency in their pockets.


In fact, in the seven federal circuits where "In God We Trust" has yet to be litigated, challenges are now being organized to do just that. Accordingly, I am searching for individuals and organizations who wish to serve as plaintiffs and who are from those seven circuits (i.e., who are from Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia or Wisconsin). If you or anyone you know would like to participate, please email contact information – including city and state of residence - to as soon as possible.


Because the Supreme Court has indicated that it is more concerned about constitutional guarantees when children are involved, those who wish to protect their children from the government’s religious transgressions are especially encouraged to write. Please be assured that we will move for a court orders to keep the names of families with children under seal. (To date, those motions have always been granted, and – as far as I know – the families’ names have always remained undisclosed.)


Thank you.


- Mike 


PS - Please pass this on to any others who you think might have an interest. Thanks, again.

Hey thanks! It's nice to be welcomed. I was getting to feel kind of lonely out here in the atheist sphere. The Origins discussion sounds great. I'll look at it.
