Jillian Dhyana Oliver replied to Robert Lawton's discussion atheism/Vegetarianism: What is the link? Are you Vegetarian? Help with online ethnography for a postgrad..

Jillian Dhyana Oliver replied to king's discussion why are you atheist
"I'm an atheist because I believe that social science shows us enough evidence that gods were invented by humans. Some consider that a philosophical claim, but I think it's a stretch to look at religions in society and history and say that…"

Jillian Dhyana Oliver replied to Athianarchist's discussion So What Made You First Start To Doubt?
"As a child, I used the word god to answer questions I didn't know the real answers to, but I had no understanding of what god was supposed to be, and I didn't really care. I was never brainwashed into believing Christianity or any other…"

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to Jillian Dhyana Oliver's discussion Will religion and belief in the supernatural be around until humans become extinct?
"We don't have to stretch our imagination too much for an answer to this question. All the trends suggest that belief in religion is declining. Christianity gives an appearance of growth because its proselytizing among the poor and the less…"
