This bill that they're trying to pass in Arizona has many people on both sides of the issue, but I'm not here to talk about one side of the issue or the other. My arguement is simply this...the…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by joseph f logston Feb 11, 2010. 5 Replies

Noah Petersen replied to Tom Sarbeck's discussion Men have sex and women make love. Or do they? in the group Secular Sexuality
"To me the two terms invoke very different imagery.  A person can have sex without an emotional attachment, or any feelings other than attraction.  However, typically making love involves something beyond two people joining genitals. …"

New Joss Whedon films

Sorry I haven't been posting on this group for a while.  I was curious what you all thought of the more recent projects by Joss Whedon, especially The Avengers movie.  Also, I was wondering if anyone else was excited about the prospect of the Much Ado about Nothing movie.  Am I the only group member that is both a Whedonite and a Shakespeare nerd?  Your thoughts?  See More

"There are things about male driven culture that need to be modified for women to stop suffering, the biggest of which is the obsession that so many people have with "purity".  The idea that women somehow decrease in value once their…"

Noah Petersen replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion On sexual objectification and subjectivication in the group Secular Sexuality

Hi e Benvenuto
Welcome to this great international site and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is,
and that gods are merely fictions inside brains cluttered with the stupidity of 'faith'.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
