"“Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.”"
~Richard Dawkins

"Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truth is a most terrible thing. The mind of a child accepts them, and only through great pain, perhaps even tragedy, can the child be relieved of them." - Hypatia


"To talk of immaterial existences is to talk of nothings. To say the the human souls, angels, god, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no god, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise...without plunging into the fathomless abyss of dreams and phantasms. I am satisfied, and sufficiently occupied with things which are, without tormenting or troubling myself about those which may indeed be, but of which I have no evidence. " ~ Thomas Jefferson

"I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it." - Mark Twain

“Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?” ~Douglas Adams

"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is, than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." - Carl Sagan.

Hi. Welcome to Atheist Nexus from one ardent atheist to another (check out My Profile and you will see).
I have been running a busy discussion group here since September 2008. It is called "Origins: Universe, Life, Earth, religion....etc".
Do try visiting and joining in. Terry (Oxford).

Zachariah, welcome to Atheist Nexus. Be sure to check out the GROUPS page to find like-minded people.

I've started eight groups here, so please join any you think you might be interested in.

HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.

THE KNIFE & FORK is a group for anyone who has a strong interest or mild curiosity in food, cooking, eating, drinking, and nutrition.

HUMANE ATHEISTS is a group for people who are interested in trying to live a humane life by understanding the issues surrounding animal welfare.

CONSUMER ETHICS was created to help us understand how our purchasing power can help or harm the world around us.

LINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANS, a group for people who love languages, words, and grammar.

ARS POETICA is a group for those who love poetry, anyone who is just curious, and everyone in between.

LOVERS OF SHAKESPEARE is a group for fans of the Bard. Topics are open to just about anything Shakespeare.

ODDITORIUM is a group dedicated to the all that which is bizarre and unusual in the world.
