Scott Bidstrup replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Why Does Prince George Have Brown Eyes? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"So...Where did those brown-eye genes come from to begin with?  That's the sixty-four dollar question implied but not stated by this thread. I have this suspicion that somewhere in the deep dark past, someone from southern climes…"

Scott Bidstrup commented on Kevin Morgan's group Amateur Radio Atheists
"There's more at play than just right or wrong or smug presumptions of some metaphysical way of knowing. There is a sense of moral superiority that leads the believer to feel morally superior to non-believers, and the desire to have another…"

Scott Bidstrup commented on Kevin Morgan's group Amateur Radio Atheists
"Emmett, write to me off-list for a cure for your dipole coax problem. As for the damned Christians pushing the prejudices and superstitions of the cult priests of ancient, tribal sky-gods, there's not much to be said there.  Though I have…"

Scott Bidstrup replied to Galen Thurber's discussion Which band is less religious 20m or 17m ? in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"I don't much care for 20, simply because it is a lot more cliquish, and there are no contests on 17m.  As for the religiosity component, it's bad everywhere.  I don't think there's much difference in that regard, but…"

"On PSK, the "God Bless" signoff is ubiquitous.  I liked one response I saw the other day - "May the Flying Spaghetti Monster touch you with His Noodly Appendage" - I told the guy that, as a pastafarian, I greatly appreciated…"

Jezri Krinsky replied to Scott Bidstrup's discussion Religious Belief Found Associated With Higher Rates Of Developing Depression in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Might these statistics be slightly skewed. People less likely to suffer from suffer from depression are more likely to become atheists. Because admitting that your life is finite and relatively insignificant might worsen the conditions of those…"

"And that I will agree with. There are times when it is easy to be an atheist, but tough times will always come along. Too many can't resist that siren song of magical healing and eternal life, which of course does not exist. Yes Rose,…"

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to Scott Bidstrup's discussion Religious Belief Found Associated With Higher Rates Of Developing Depression in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"That a sin may be carried forward to generations and generations of and to billions of people is religious brainwashing to sustain the falsehood of faith."

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to Scott Bidstrup's discussion Religious Belief Found Associated With Higher Rates Of Developing Depression in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Rose, I do not mean that atheists do not suffer from depression but that they are strong willed enough to overcome it without any heavenly aid."

Drew Carpenter replied to Scott Bidstrup's discussion Religious Belief Found Associated With Higher Rates Of Developing Depression in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

"Yes, religion or in fact belief in god is an antidepressant for those who are susceptible to depression. Atheist do not suffer depression because they are strong willed and capable of standing on their own feet."

I'm not sure how it happened but the discussion posted twice. Your answer is very interesting but as you can see from Dr. Meaden's answer in the other post he disagrees with you. (My position is that science does not know enough about the nature of life energy to say whether it can exist in the absence of a physical realm and that Atheism means only a lack of belief in gods.) I was wondering if you would post your answer to the latest discussion to see what other opinions it might generate.

Hello Scott, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that gods are phoney and religion is nothing but a great fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including especially defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Maybe the village accepts your atheism because you are an outsider, and an American one at that?
