Dylan Michael McFarland commented on Diana Bett's blog post ... And I'm back!
"Hi Diana, I've also wondered why, especially a college of all places, would religiosity be so abundant? It's probably not because of the student body, but instead because of a tradition of trying to convert people; these religious…"

Dylan Michael McFarland commented on Andrew's group Atheists in the Biological Sciences
"Hi all.   I read an article in Scientific American on speciation and it provides a web-link to evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/home.php which provides a fun college freshman-level overview of evolution, if anyone is interested."

Anti-Theists

What's wrong with there being theists in the world? As long as they're not forcing you to join them, it's ok, right? ..Wrong.. This group is to share thoughts about the dangers of theism -- and through the discussion, to be armed to enlighten others.

Vegetarian/Vegan Atheists

This once-active group is now unmoderated, and discussions / interest have declined to almost nothing. The original group founder is long gone.Active moderation is needed, therefore comments and membership are now closed.For re-birth of a vegetarian atheist group, if you are willing to moderate the group, I invite you to submit a new group.  There have been some great discussions and I am grateful to have been involved.  I am vegetarian and atheist, among other things, and would love to be in…See More

Dylan Michael McFarland commented on Eric R.'s blog post The evil of Pope Benedict XVI
"Well we all are feeling the same thing. How do you argue with one who denies reason? It's very difficult and frustrating. (I always say that science exists for a reason - there ARE facts. Undeniable facts.) You can't ignore these kinds of…"

Dylan Michael McFarland replied to Nathan Hevenstone's discussion Pseudoscience... Why I Hate the Term
"pseudo means false. When you call something pseudo-science, you're saying it's false science. ie not true. Stephen Moore is right (below) - it's an insult, and most certainly not a polite way of saying something is wrong."

Dylan Michael McFarland replied to Howard S. Dunn's discussion The Bible as literature
"Oh what a hilarious post. I couldn't agree with you more. Often the defense for the terrible quality of the bible is that it was written so long ago. So what? You're completely right, the Iliad is frickin' sweet - and old. A genuinely…"

Dylan Michael McFarland replied to Howard S. Dunn's discussion The Bible as literature
"What a nice post. Speaking of wolves (I know how pertinently relevant this is) you can see the evolutionary behavior through dogs - leave 10 pounds of food out, and they will eat every single bite. Wolves are opportunist eaters who never know when…"

Dylan Michael McFarland replied to Howard S. Dunn's discussion The Bible as literature
"Well if the bible didn't exist until now, no one would read it. It's terribly written and frankly, full of so many atrocities that I find myself needing a relaxing walk of solitude every time I read it. It's not a path to asceticism…"

hey Dylan! Glad you moved from CSU to UCB! I grew up in Boulder, did high school and college there and my parents still live there. So I am quite partial to UCB :)

Oh I loved the EEB department, too. So many cool people there! I worked in Yan Linhart's lab doing 3 yrs of undergrad research, but now he's retired and in California. His lab used to be right next to Dr. Jeff Mitton's lab on the 200 level of Ramaley.

After UCB I also got my master's at CU's Medical School in Aurora CO, int he biomedical sciences. I lived in Denver for 4 years during that time and while working and loved it.

My current grad degree is microbial ecology of polar oceans. I am at the University of Delaware. It's a tiny campus and a big change from what I am used to but I love my advisor and research and that is what matters! Sorry to ramble on though, so nice to see an EEB person :) Still consider myself a Boulderite in many ways. When are you planning to graduate?

WOAH, UCB and EEB! Just like me. Nice :)

Welcome to A/N! I like your quote, it cracks me up when theists assume atheists are liars- it is us that refuse to lie! I feel the same way you do!

Hi, and a friendly welcome to Dylan Michael McFarland

Welcome to this great Nexus meeting place and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden (physicist; a strong atheist)
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.
