New Atheist replied to Sol Gartner's discussion Is there a figurative 'critical period' for rational thought? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I concur that Breaking the Spell is a great read. In chapter 4, page 109, Dennett describes a concept created by Justin Barrett, called a hyperactive agent detection device (HADD). He describes it as a dog leaping up and howling when a pile of snow…"

Sol Gartner replied to Myke Sorrel's discussion Why believe in God? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"The notion that God came from religion is a very mistaken one. The organized religions that we pay attention to these days were seldom widespread until they were institutionalized into governments (e.g., egyptians, hinduism). The overwhelming…"

"Well if you'd like to read further on the subject, there's actually a great line of research out there that receives little (relatively) attention. The truth is, considering evolution, religion has two options, just like everything else:…"

Jim DePaulo replied to Sol Gartner's discussion Is there a figurative 'critical period' for rational thought? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Agreed, the "uniquely mine" was a rather stupid thing to state. I was trying to simply make the point that the illusion doesn't bother me. No one else has the exact same brain structure as you That's probably a positive thing for…"

"Scott, I totally understand, I have a mother, a sister and some nephews and nieces and their kids and grandkids left in the states. We no longer correspond, Everyone in the family knew that I had left home due to the religious gulf that separated…"

Scott Bidstrup replied to Sol Gartner's discussion 'Atheist Guilt' in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Ken, I understand what you are saying about the religious families. I grew up as a fourth-generation Mormon in a family with a very strong pioneer heritage; my mother was raised in a farming town founded by her father under orders from Brigham…"

"I was actually thinking about running a few studies on this line of thought. It's interesting how we make external attributions to things inside our brains. If it's not conscious, we think it wasn't us (for instance, the subconscious…"

Sol Gartner replied to Sol Gartner's discussion 'Atheist Guilt' in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I've noticed a lot of people interpreting this as my disclosure of a kind of neurotic guilt for being an atheist that I wish to reconcile. I would just like to emphasize to everyone that we are an evolved coalitionary species, that is, we are…"

Sol Gartner replied to Sol Gartner's discussion 'Atheist Guilt' in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Well one thing I think people mistake my first post for was that I was venting about some kind of atheist neuroticism that torments my soul. I feel the same guilt that you do, but I assure you, it's not because of some subconscious 'want…"

Hi Ryan, and welcome to the site of the sensible, rational people of the world gathered here.

Atheist Nexus comprises thousands of bright freethinkers who recognise religion for the superstitious farce and human tragedy that it is---and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.

"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with over 2100 members and 350 discussion topics.
