"Keep your ears open about this instructor. My take on the whole thing is that the instructor knows very well that atheists are likely to know more about the Bibble than the christians do. With that much said, it follows that Jewish and Islamic…"

QUOTE

"The religious factions growing throughout our land are trying to force government leaders into following their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups they threaten you with a loss of money or votes or both. From where do they presume to dictate their moral beliefs to me? I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of Conservatism."

So my girlfriend is studying to become a lay minister within her Church. I even helped her pay for a class.  She knows I’m an atheist and is fine with that. And I’m fine with the fact she is a Christian.

Well, during the class someone mentioned, yes..you know how…ATHESISTS….

Ya know what the instructor told the class.

Atheists tend to have and behave more “Christian” then the Christians.

That took a lot of people aback.

Kinds throws a different like on…

Realization

REALIZATION

 

One day I realized just why religious people, or that fraction of “Believers” hate atheists, is that they are literally scared of us.

They are simply afraid that their beliefs will be shown to be false.

And with that, the made up afterlife will not be there for them.

There is no great beyond.

There isn’t a “higher order” or that they are the “Chosen” of the all mighty.

Their lives are, at least in their eyes, limited, or…

I've not been on Facebook for some time as an atheist.  I've used several user names and at a certain point I get kicked off.

Now originally I was kicked off because of complaints field against me by "religious" nut jobs.

Now these nut jobs seem to have nothing else better to do then hunt down people who declare themselves as non-believers in some invisible guy in the sky.

I went on as an atheist, but was not looking for trouble just trying to hook up with others like…

The Holy Land

Looking at the History Channel program on the Bible I'm bothered by a simple issue.

What is the attraction of the place?

Honestly, if you take a step back and look at it, the place is, well, a dump.

Rocky land, poor sand, limited water, natural resources are what?

I wouldn't want to live there.

And to be honest, don't think I'd ever want to visit it.

Maybe it is just me, but has anyone ever sat these people who live there down and point this out to…

Hi, Rick. I see that you're an active member of Military Atheists. I've run across an article relevant to folks in service, but am not a member so I can't post it. I've previously left information on military related science articles with the moderator, but he doesn't seem to pass on anything.

People with PTSD should not be taking Ambien for sleep, it enhances negative emotional memories.

Sleep Mechanism Identified That Plays Role in Emotional Memory

Please use your judgment about the relevance, or future relevance, of this article and consider posting a discussion in Military Atheists.

Thanks for your attention.
