Science....it works

This is a huge topic, I know. But it concerns us all to be armed with knowledge and converging arguments that will aid in our ability to defend science.Science, as a progressive body of knowledge, reworks its findings, and distributes its discoveries to our society through its innovations and fundamental understanding. There is a reason inventions such as internal combustion engines, the telephone, satellite imaging and electricity were not assembled until just these last few hundred years. It…See More

My Beliefs As A Non-believer

I believe science has taught us more than we ever imagined it would.

I believe the evidence indicated that the universe began expanding rapidly 14.5 to 15 billion years ago at a point in time and space where all matter existed simultaneously.

I believe matter and space have restricted abilities and that these can be understood objectively as laws.

I believe there is no god that created the universe or actively listens to beings in the universe.

I believe the atomic theory accurately describes how matter behaves, but our understanding of subatomic particles is constantly progressing forcing us to refine our understanding of the universe further.

I believe superstition and religion are primitive ways of attempting to explain nature and that they are innadequate in our modern somewhat technologically advanced society.

I believe that Homo sapiens, chimpanzees, and apes all share a common ancestor.

I believe life exists on millions and millions of other planets across the universe.

I believe in sharing experiences with people of all cultures and philosophies is important to our social way of life as a species.

I believe that religion has prosthylized itself upon the human race with its power and money only to stymy our progress and enslave the free minds and lives of millions of people throughout history.

I believe our species will survive even though our present wars, famine, energy crisis, and diseases make the outlook so bleak.

I believe in being honest and being good to people in this world, but not because I think it will get me into some sweet penthouse in the afterlife.

I believe science has given us the gift of refining our understanding about the universe and that this will lead our civilization to a better place.

I believe in education that questions complacency and forces new perspectives upon the student.

I believe I could add to this list for the rest of my life.
