Future of the planet

Consider this.The majority of people in this country are religious and most of them are fundamentalist Christians. That means that those of us who hold a rational view of the world around us and who choose to think for ourselves are vastly outnumbered. The resulting lopsided electorate means the majority of the people in our government not only believe that global nuclear conflict is inevitable, they actually welcome it. That’s right.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus where you are among good friends and everyone is sensible and rational. This is the world as it should be--- instead of a world run by irrational bible thinkers.
Join some of the Nexus groups and feel at home.
Terry (of the group "ORIGINS")
