"If faith healing and other woo medicine worked so well, why did anyone come up with actual medicine in the first place? Denying a kid medicine b/c of religion is just child abuse. If adults decide to use prayer instead of illness, well...Darwin…"

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

Welcome brother! I see you've already been pulled into Atheist News so I won't pimp that to you again =)

I think you'll quite enjoy it here, feel free to speak your mind on whatever.

Welcome! You are now at a place where you will be comfortable with others who share the same world view point as yours when it comes to the fundamental value of TRUTH.

Please feel free to join my group Pat Condell who pulls no punches when it comes to voicing his opinion about religion. I post regular You Tube videos which are brilliantly apt regards current affairs put across with wry humor.

Hi Shawn Short, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists recognise that religion is nothing less than a huge fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, 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.

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.
