"Anne,   Thanks for the comments!  One thing I will be chasing up - they claim that the universe is NOT expanding and this is proved because some galaxies, with greatly differeing red-shifts are actually close to each other and, in some…"

"I'm not a cosmologist, the closest I get is being an physicist with a master in astrophysics, who prefered to collect data rather than do the heavy theoretical work.   The electrical Universe seems to be something along the line of a book…"

The Electric Universe

People, I just became aware of this theory: http://www.electricuniverse.info/Introduction a few weeks ago and I am getting one of the people to speak at a our Sydney Futurists meeting in October: http://www.meetup.com/SydneyFuturists/events/32133092/ Are there any cosmologists here that would like to comment? - it seems fairly consistent to me, although some of…See More

" CaptainCook, I'm with you brother - public funding of private brainwashing is bloody outrageous!  I understand why the Whitlam government introduced the change that opened the floodgates later to private schools rorting the system but it…"

philip_rhoades replied to Carol Putnam's discussion Any single men (50-60ish) in Southern Oregon area? in the group Atheist Singles
"Carol, Not in Oregon (not even in the same country!) but I have an interest in Oregon (long story) although I live in Sydney (Oz) and have some similar interests. Regards, Phil."

philip_rhoades replied to Heather Geraghty's discussion How do you cope with the criticism of religious people? in the group Atheist Singles
"Heather, I don't know why you are assuming a defensive position - my view is that believers are genetically defective (they a possess a "God" gene) or are basically simple minded or deluded . . in all cases deserving of our pity .…"

"I just posted a stroppy note on the ABC's Compass page about tonight's show - I didn't use bad language but was factual - it is a moderated comments page so it will be interesting to see if they print it . ."

"This media frenzy about the impending raising of Ms MacKillop to the status of diety is driving me insane! I haven't seen a single journalist ask a hard question of anyone involved - like "Why do you believe in a fairy story?",…"

philip_rhoades replied to A Former Member's discussion Loneliness and Self-Pity in the group Atheist Singles
"Dallas, Good, important post. I think part of the problem is modern society - although I love the science and technology that the Western tradition has produced, a lot of us seem lost, to some extent, as individuals. I have been thinking a lot…"

"reading some of the posts makes me angry at how much superstitious nonsense is still around" me too. I hope that you'll find some reason and logical discourse here.

Hi
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8900+ good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, try visiting perhaps the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its 130 commonsense discussions to repel religious nonsense. You will be welcome.
One discussion is "Proud to be Atheist" (74 posts) seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground compared with the pathetic superstitions of the god followers.
Terry Meaden (English physicist; archaeologist; Oxford; 60+; another rabid atheist; founder of “Origins”)
