My idea of why so many people believe in invisible supernatural entities is fear of the unknown; death being the major factor. This has been inherited in the mind since mankind existed, in fact, even…Continue

"We love death..."

Hamas warned Israel: “We Love Death More Than You Love Life.” Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah said “We are going to win, because they love life and we love death,” Two years before he killed thirteen people and wounded twenty-nine at Fort Hood, Texas, Nidal Malik Hasan prepared a slide show for his fellow Army doctors on the subject of Islam. One of his last points read: “We love death more than you love life!” The idea originated with a 7th-century Muslim commander who threatened his enemies…See More

Theo Van Gogh

Quote from Theo Van Gogh publicizing his book one year before his assassination by a Muslim extremist.“This book is called 'Allah Knows Best' because it is my dark suspicion that the new Middle Ages of Mecca are on the verge of outbreak; and because I feel, as a professional atheist, very unsafe in a climate that is dominated by ambitious mayors who are happily busy “keeping things together” and sit round the table with the wrong mosque board, while Moroccan youngsters play soccer with funeral…See More

FROM THE WORD OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

Ezekiel 37:1-10 “The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?' I said, 'O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.' Then he said to me, 'Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign…See More

Stephen, glad to have you as a friend. Growing in strength as a proud atheist, and enjoying the company of others who have not found adequate evidence to convince them there is a god, is not only fun, it is enriching. Welcome to the group.
