"there is no archeological evidence except for the bible that he has ever existed. However, I do think it is quite impossible to make up a story just like that. I do believe that Jesus probably did existed during his time, but if I said in "I am…"
"I remember that Life Education Van coming to my school when I was in primary school. I don't recall having anything religious in any of these programs. Teaching kids to eating healthy and living healthy seems nothing wrong with me. There's…"
"Imagining sleeping with Richard Dawkins? A bit too much information don't you think Kristy lol? Yeah I read that small article in The Age about the Atheist Convention. Its great to see the media has taken an interest in the event, well only one…"
"OK I admit, I knew nothing about the criticism of Mother Teresa. To be honest, when I put her name as one of 'good people who are religious', I knew little about Teresa. I've only heard about the 'good work' she has done. I…"
"Hi Eddie - Dick Gross is from Melbourne. He's a former Mayor of Port Phillip, now an author. He has also founded a secular 'Saturday School' for non-theistic Jews in Melbourne so that they can learn and keep Jewish traditions and…"
This a very good article from The National Times, an online social commentary and opinion website run by Fairfax Media, owner of the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and The Australian Financial Review. To view the website, go to the National Times website, go down to 'The Bloggers', and find 'Godless Gross' amongst the blogs. Can someone tell me who is Dick Gross? Probably wants to remain anonymous. Funny name, if that is his real name.Why I do not believe in a GodBy Dick GrossThe National…See More

Thank you for joining HERCULANEUM. I look forward to your contributions. Be sure to select “follow” on the right hand side of the group page so that you are automatically notified of new posts. Also, please review the archive of posts and comments if you have the time.
Please note, because this is a private group, the group icon will not show up in your GROUPS section on your homepage, for some odd reason.
Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.
I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.
This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only. Please check it out.
"Melinda that's so nice of your mom to support your daughter in her decision to focus on her classes. Did she already start summer school?
Joan we are here to support you and you are in our thoughts.
Happy hump day to you too Melinda!"

I've asked them how they would go about showing evidence for the non-existence of the dragon in Carl Sagan's garage or Russell's celestial teapot. They assert that the analogy is false, but don't explain how. They use words like 'logic' or 'inference' as if they were magic charms without fully understanding what these words mean. It's not unlike superstitious primitives from a cargo cult…See More
