Karl Marx

Karl Marx played a big role for Atheism which few know about. His ideas are often distorted in schools. This group is for people who want to get to know him better.See More

"Thanks for the welcome.
I am very interested in Darwinism, I think that its a very fascinating science. I have realised that it is not the only intellectually satisfactory explaination of the origin of life on earth but also that it is itself a supreme consciousness raiser.
The understanding of the organic connection and similar origin of all living organisms implied in Darwinism gives me a form of spiritual contentment that far surpasses the illusory connection with a mythical being propagated by the backward religious dogma.
Those Homo sapiens who haven't embraced evolution by natural selection are missing out on one of the greatest discoveries by modern science.
The theory of evolution is a manifestation of the triumph of reason over stupidity!
I will be very glad to join your discussion group, I'm sure it will be a very good learning experience for me since there are still a lot of evolutionary 'peculiarities' i don't yet understand e.g. Why men have nipples?, Why did homosexuality evolve?, Is Eugenics in sync with evolution?,etc.
Kind regards, Zeb"


Dear Zeb
That's a neat piece you have just written by way of introductory comment (reproduced above). May I encourage you to raise some of these as topics on the "Origins" site because of a general likely interest by other members? Yours and best regards, Terry

Hello Zeblon and a big welcome to the site of the sensible, rational people of the world who are gathering here.

This great place has thousands of bright people like yourself who recognise religion for the superstitious force and farce that it is---and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with over 2100 members and 350 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
