Mayan archaeological find in North Georgia?

I stumbled across this story on Yahoo and found some more about it online. Has an 1100 year old Mayan site been discovered in the Georgia mountains? I haven't bothered checking the Mormon blogosphere to see if this is reigniting hopes of finding real evidence allegedly supporting the historicity of the Book of Mormon. Does anyone else know about…See More

Jim Mo. replied to Edward Teach's discussion In a universe devoid of meaning... Why give a shit about the future of humanity? in the group Existential Atheists
"I am all for understanding human evolution. I do wonder, however, if understanding that our brain/genes package has evolved to support the continuation of our genes is sufficiently a "meaning" to our life in the goal-less Universe. Yet,…"

"Porn Is Ruining The Sex Lives Of An Entire Generation Brain science? No distinction between vividly imagined and actual physical experience? Can overexposure make sex boring? Good for population control? Where is the simple answer?"

Colorado Non-theist Groups

I am involved with more than one Colorado-based non-theist group. I have noticed several comments from people looking for groups in Colorado. One good starting place to look is the Colorado Coalition of Reason website. It includes links to over a dozen groups in the state. It is not exhaustive yet but it come close. COCORE also has a…See More

Atheistic Liberalism vs. Non-theistic Community

This post is prompted by some discussions among members of a local atheist group about building an atheist community.  My ideas orignate from several months of thought on the subject of community.  A recent discussion thread in the groups online forum included descriptions of an Oregon-based community youth church, comments about the Flatirons Community Church (currently the second largest church in Colorado, based on weekly attendance), and another member's advocacy for recreating and…See More

"Several stark examples of missing empathy here. (ugh) I can think of so many others. As to the absence of empathy, I assume there are theories on how that can happen. I have an developmentally disabled son who does not show empathy very often. In…"

Worldwide conspiracy to hide the evil of religion?

Posted on June 21, 2011 at 1:46pm 11 Comments

I continue to run up against this in my conversations with local atheists: "yes, but I still think there is a lot of bad that religions cause and we need to make them stop". This, of course is a paraphrase. I find it is always in response to any suggestion of setting aside the ranting and complaining about religions and moving on to creating community and doing service to address social and human problems.

So I am wondering to myself (since I can't seem to get anyone to engage in the…
