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.

Hi Terry, Thanks for the welcome! As to origins, since retiring, I've taken up an interest in the origin of the nearly universal human belief in invisible, intelligent agents. This seems to be one of a few things, like complex languages, that sharply distinguishes us from other apes. Of course. these peculiar beliefs also underlie most religions. Maybe you folks have a related discussion group.       Charlie

Appreciate the welcome. Is there a particular forum that shows upcoming meetings and events. I definitely want to get involved with open-minded people for intelligent discussion.

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. 

Ryan
