I.                    IntroductionI have a hypothesis that may possibly contribute to the growing study of the psychology of religion. That is, I may have determined how the “God concept” or “God…Continue

Kara Smith replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"I agree. I'm no psychologist, but I believe I have figured out how the "god concept" is formed in an individual's mind. Without getting into it too deeply, what it comes down to is that every person has in their mind a…"

"Sheesh. I just go with Dawkins' definition."

Kara Smith replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"One can certainly prove a negative; proving a universal negative is much more difficult and in some cases impossible. It's easy to show there is no cat in this box; impossible under normal circumstances to demonstrate that there are no cats in…"

"I agree. I didn't learn much science growing up, but I was fortunate enough to go to a Waldorf-style school where we learned about a huge number of polytheistic myths. I think that one needs to hear them all in order to have a well-balanced…"

"You're right. I should have said "the universe as we know it.""

Kara Smith replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"An excellent BS call. :-P It reminds me of Ingersoll's lectures where he put forth that matter is eternal, and all we've ever seen is either matter or force, which is a property of matter. Of course back then the cosmic microwave…"

Kara Smith replied to Janine Alderete's discussion Christopher Hitchens has cancer
"Ha! I can summarize that blog post in a few sentences, I think. "Christopher Hitchens has cancer, but I'm praying for him. I know it will drive him nuts, but I'm doing it because I'm such a good person." I understand that…"

"That. Is. AWESOME! ^.^"

Kara Smith commented on Fabio's blog post Christopher Hitchens et alia.
"I felt the same way when I heard about Hitchens--I was both cheering for him to beat this and hearing Theist buzzards beginning to circle. It's the ultimate transfer of emotions, really, whether they're talking about Hitchens or something…"

Kara Smith replied to Janine Alderete's discussion Christopher Hitchens has Cancer
"*FACEPALM* No, actually I didn't see that particular response coming. Still, you gotta love how no matter what happens, some believer of some sort will find a way to take credit for it. He smoked, he got cancer, and hopefully he'll be…"

Kara Smith replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"Well, I think it's a habit like anything else, from biting your nails to bullemia. It will probably take some time to break the habit and direct your attention towards something more productive. On the other hand I know that when you are going…"

Kara Smith replied to La Gaya Sienza's discussion The wrongness of homosexuality and other such diverse(perverse)ities
"In a word, no. I don't see how anyone, in the majority or not, has the right to not be made to feel sick. And it does no other harm--no danger, no financial cost, etc. Democracy isn't two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for…"

Kara Smith replied to Dave Rogers's discussion In The Beginning... in the group Atheist Writers
"*laughs* You wouldn't be the first person to make a story explaining religion. Douglas Adams did it really well too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kK1YgR7J0g That is a great idea though; an "Atheist story." I've always told…"

Medford... Medford... why does that sound familiar? Oh yes! It was the savior after driving through Myrtle Creek at 2am. Myrtle Creek was one creepy place, so Medford seemed like actual civilization.

Hi Kara Smith, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinking nontheists who recognise that religion is a grand deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and you know
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 280 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1680 others.
