"I consider myself a pantheistic atheist. I feel the woo and the awe, but I accept that it is a feeling and not evidence that there is anything supernatural. I don't see how a deity and what we know about the universe can co-exist. That said,…"

Greetings, Tammie! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Nov. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, .Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Ships will fall off the Earth flat! Of course, if it was really like that, I think we humans would've already overpopulated this planet to the point of shoving each other off the edge for fun. You know, not like we haven't done that already. But "Death by shoved into the cosmos" would be far more prominent.
Thanks for your support and welcome to Atheist Nexus,
where the good people of this world strive to make the world a better place for all,
a world which we have to share whether we like it or not (...unless you physicists can colonise Mars sometime soon :-)....)
