Some of my favorite quotes

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.

Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.

Is he both able, and willing? Then whence cometh evil?

Is he neither willing, nor able? Then why call him God"



Epicurus (341-270BC)



Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.



Epicurus (341-270BC)



It is folly for a man to pray to the gods… Continue

The 14th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Creation is evident”

By:Aron Ra



In May of 2007, former child actor, Kirk Cameron and fellow advocate of idiocy, Ray Comfort, promised to scientifically prove the existence of God on national television,

The 12th falsehood of Creationism: “Creation science”

By: Aron Ra



Paleontology in its early days was a difficult discipline. We had to devise a way to test and confirm the claims that were made because 19th Century pioneers were often confused by their own preconceptions, and often made simple mistakes that went undiscovered for decades. Unwary professors were sometimes made the victims of pranks, and not every respected scientist was entirely… Continue

The 11th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Macroevolution has never been observed.”

By: Aron Ra



You share more traits in common with your siblings than you do with your cousins due to the recent ancestors you share with them, your parents. Deeper down, you share more in common with those in your extended family than you do with neighbors and classmates, etc., people you don’t recognize as part of your biological family. But you must realize that on some level… Continue

Hey John, you wrote:
"The universe is a majestic weave of fantasy and wonder held together by the simplest of forces. Elusive simplicity is that which makes man strive harder to understand that which seems impossible.

One who thinks of these things is who I am."
