Atheism-don't be a

"This is one lesson the atheist community needs to work on the most. There is anger and contempt and frustration which is reasonable and understandable and can be expressed in constructive ways. But it is also expressed in arrogant, mean,…"

evolution

"I don't think this cartoon is helpful since it advances the false premise that we have not observed evolution directly. We have observed it repeatedly in viruses and bacteria and even in larger species such as lizards on a Croatian island.…"

evolution

"Indeed...This is very true. Richard Dawkins interviews a creationist in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFjoEgYOgRo She just repeats the same things over and again like a smug parrot."

"I find it incredible that the people refuting evolution don't seem to understand what a scientific theory is. It's not just a guess that's pretty damn close to being right, but it's a verifiable, workable model. Also, the…"

Favorite Quotes:

"I cannot conceive of a God who rewards and punishes his creatures, or has a will of the kind that we experience in ourselves. Neither can I nor would I want to conceive of an individual that survives his physical death; let feeble souls, from fear or absurd egoism, cherish such thoughts. I am satisfied with the mystery of the eternity of life and with the awareness and a glimpse of the marvelous structure of the existing world, together with the devoted striving to comprehend a portion, be it ever so tiny, of the Reason that manifests itself in nature." (Albert Einstein, The World as I See It)

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." (Richard Dawkins, "The God Delusion")

The highest as the lowest form of criticism is a mode of autobiography. Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all. ~Oscar Wilde

"There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always—do not forget this, Winston—always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face … for ever." 1984 by: George Orwell

"Faith is a device of self-delusion, a sleight of hand done with words and emotions founded on any irrational notion that can be dreamed up. Faith is the attempt to coerce truth to surrender to whim. In simple terms, beauty of wishes. Faith is the refuge of fools, the ignorant, and the deluded, not of thinking, rational men."

"Religious faith represents so uncompromising a miss use of the power of our minds that it forms a kind of perverse, cultural singularity-a vanishing point beyond which rational discourse proves impossible."

Torture: No they don't get it. Quite apart from it not working, they ignore the poisonous and corrosive effect it has on any society that condones it. This is an excellent treatise on the subject -
