<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.

Apologies for the late reply Terry and thanks for your warm welcome.

So many topics to choose from there but I'll make my way around as many as I can. Fascinating stuff too. I've been searching for a community like this for a long time and stumbled upon the link a few weeks ago. A very happy accident indeed.

Thanks for the hello, Terry. I'll have a look at the Origins group.

Terry,

Thank you for the warm welcome!  I hope to enjoy conversations and community with fellow non-religionists, non-superstituous types of people.  I'm fairly new as a non-theist and yet have been open-minded for many years, searching, thinking, rationalizing of course, and then realizing, "Wow, those are just fairy tales old people made up.  Like Santa Claus, whom I never had a close personal relationship with.

I'm too busy for any official groups at this moment, but hanging out sounds easy enough.

Thanks Terence.  I don't really see me becoming an Atheist any more then me becoming a Christian :)  LOL...

If anything, I am more leaning towards Pagan/Wiccan, but there to lacks lots of proof.  The subject that mostly irritated me about the comments the other night was how several people were so quick to put down others.  I tried to explain myself and they just kept getting meaner.

As a child I was forced into the Mormon Cult.  My family bought this house and I had to sleep in the basement.  I would see these apparitions and explain them to my parents. They of course would say they were Satan messengers and were there to test my faith.  This was a one time thing either.  The one set that I would see appeared to be old pilgrims, and they would knee in the corner and pray.  Granted myself and my two sisters felt other presents down there and they were not peaceful.  But the prilgrims were not bad, they needed help.  As I grew and got older I had other things happen.  But I quickly learned that what religion was telling me and what I was finding were two totally different things.  I do strongly believe in earth bound trapped spirits and people having energy.  And this energy sometimes get left behind.  That there are both good and bad spirits.  Does this make any sense or am I rambling to the wrong person again?

At 6:56pm on April 14, 2015, Andrew Humphries said…

Sorry Terence, but I am thinking I joined the wrong group.  I was watching the chat on the main room and someone commented about believing in ghosts.  I commented that I believed in ghosts/aperitions/spirtits and several members got flat out ignorant about it.  My first thought was just to delete from this place, but then I thought I would wait to hear from people that have sent me messages.

At 7:14pm on April 13, 2015, Andrew Humphries said…

is there any way to find local agnostic/athiests?  or are we just strung all across the globe?
