Scriptural Criticism

This group will do more than just pick apart biblical errors and contradictions. Let's closely examine the Bible and Qur'an. Nothing is sacred; every prophecy, proverb, and parable deserves examination and critique.

Newest Addition to the pantheon: Mary Mackillop

  Since the news came out about her canonization thrilled fans of Mary Mackillop are rejoicing with much passion. Mary Mackillop is allegedly responsible of a couple of miracles one posthumously, she is also the first australian saint hence the thrill among the devout.  WTF!....(breathing heavily) did anyone among the fans ever ask lets say two miracles in a span of lets give it a century multiply it with the thousands of believers who pray everyday now subtract it by two...Yes i know WTF.

Welcome to this excellent site and its bright atheists like you who recognise that religion is a fraud and gods are nothing but superstitions of the credulous.

Terry Meaden (English; physicist and archaeologist; 60+) founder of the busy group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 200 discussion topics.
We examine the world’s great questions including how life and humans, religion and faith, and everything else began.
We invite you to come and enjoy the entertaining discussions.

Joel, I’m not the official welcome wagon, but I do spend a lot of time on A|N, so I’ll take the liberty to welcome you and tell you a little about the site.

There are three ways to join in the conversations here. You can use the CHAT ROOM, or you can post a discussion in either the FORUM or in one of the GROUPS. The FORUM has different categories for posting discussions, and it is open to everyone here. To post a discussion or comment in a GROUP, you must first join that group.

There are over 500 groups so far, so just about any area of interest you can have will be represented. There are regional groups, groups for ex-Christians or ex-Muslims, and groups for pot smokers, bikers, singles, gamers, the LGBT community, parents, and pet lovers. Groups of common interest include: music, science, writing, politics, philosophy, morality, ethics, cinema, feminism, human rights, memetics, sexuality, history, race & culture, gardening, vegetarianism, books, propaganda, Cynicism, Objectivism, news, Doctor Who, free speech, the NFL, psychology, science fiction, horror films, Star Trek, and much more.

You are welcome to start your own group, but I might suggest that you first check to make sure that no such group for that particular interest already exists (for example, we already have four LGBT groups).


When commenting in a group, be sure to select FOLLOW at the bottom of the screen so that you’ll be informed of follow up comments to either the discussion, or to your comments. Also, the unspoken preference on A|N for responding to the comments of another member tend to be that you copy the text to which you are referring, paste it in your comment, italicize it, and then write your response below that. That way everyone knows to whom or what you are referring. You should also activate all links or URLs you post.

The best way to see what’s going on elsewhere on the site is to monitor the LATEST ACTIVITY feed on the right side of the screen. You’ll see new members announced and the conversations that are attracting the most attention.

Again, welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here, as I do.

Hi Joel! Welcome to Atheist Nexus. I'd like to invite you to join our Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheists group.

I notice from your profile that you're quadriplegic, so I understand that travel might be difficult. Nevertheless, I do want to let you know about the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne next March - just in case there's a chance you can make it. It's going to be huge, and speakers will include Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers, Peter Singer, Phillip Adams and many more.

Unfortunately, if you want to access the convention website, you will have to be a little patient. It, and the Atheist Foundation of Australia website were the subject of a cyber-attack yesterday which has continued (and increased) throughout the day. The convention website is safe, but has been taken offline for safety. I'll let everyone know when it's back up.

In the meantime, enjoy Atheist Nexus - I hope you'll join us in our group.
