The Banned Atheist Network (The B.A.N.) going live.

In case you hadn't tried it, DemocraticUnderground.com (DU) is a popular liberal blog, with an occasionally good Religion forum for believers and Nones to try and discuss issues reasonably.

After I was banned from DU, I asked here at A/N, in this discussion, "Are Democrats locking atheists…

Some Reasons Why I Am An Atheist

First off, I'd like to say that if anyone could give me hard evidence of the existence of

a goD and this evidence could be tested by Scientists and proven to be true then I

would crawl through 100 miles of razor sharp glass just to kiss goDs feet. Simply

put, I am open minded to a certain point. The bIBLE can not be used as hard

evidence because it is a book of stories written 2000+ years ago, by humans that

were very ignorant of the reality around them. Plus, many of the…

Noah's Ark or Noah's Farce

First let me say that, when I refer to fossils I mean all species of animal, reptile, bird,

insect and arachnid fossilized remains found.

I have read that, as of 2010, the number of species living today are;

Mammals ..... = 5,490 .......X 2......... = 10,980

Birds............. = 9,998 .......X 2......... = 19,996

Reptiles........ = 9,084 ........X 2......... = 18,168

Insects... = 1,000,000 ........X 2.... = 2,000,000

Arachnids.. = 102,248 .......X…

My Thoughts On The Environment

I like to compare the Earth and its Environment to a Fish Bowl and its Environment.

Both are contained Environments, Both Environments are affected by the number of

Life Forms in them and Both  Environments are affected by the amount of pollution in

them.

You may say that the Earth is much bigger and, in being so, allows it to handle the

detrimental effects thrust upon it. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Earth

can not get rid of the life that is living…

Measuring The Distance To Very Distant Objects

I would really like to know how the Astronomers use "Red Shift", in the light spectrum,

to determine the distance to a very distant objects (see title).

The way I understand what the astronomers are doing is:

1. gather the light from a very distant object.

2. Pass the gathered light through a prism

3. Measure how far the red light has shifted. The more it shifts the farther away it is.

If this is where they stop their calculation of distance, to the very…

Life After Death an Atheists New Point of View

I really like to just think. Let your mind go and let the thoughts flow through your mind.

I also do this to help me go to sleep. It's hard to explain what happens, it's like I release

control of my thinking process and my mind starts going "What if this", "What if this",

"What if this", "What if this", "What if this", "What if this", then maybe a good thought

comes through and I say whoa, lets think about that for awhile. This may sound crazy

but its worked for me…

Chicken or the Egg

In my life I've heard and been asked the question "What Came First, The Chicken Or

The Egg?". Now, with a question like this, you have only 2 answers and 1 MUST be

wrong.

Definition of  "Faith"....strong or unshakeable belief in something, especially

                                        without proof or evidence.

To answer this question a theist must rely on their Faith and a book written 2000 years

ago and by people that thought the light from the Moon was…

Background Microwave Radiation

Astronomers and the like say that the Background Microwave Radiation, that is present no matter where a Radio Telescope is pointed, is the residue of the light from the "Big Bang" that created our Universe. I'm pretty sure they say that over time (10 - 20 billion of our years) the frequency of the light, from the "Big Bang", has slowed down to the frequencies in the MicroWave band.

Ok......That is both acceptable and unacceptable to me.

Acceptable>  Light traveling for…

Believers and Nonbelivers

I know I'm behind the times but, I just saw the Debate(?) between Matt Slick and

Matt Dillahunty. I have to admit that Matt is Slick. I don't know about other people but,

their debate, to me, was weird. Slick appeared to try, exceptionally hard, to win the

debate through confusion and get Dillahunty to admit something. See I'm confused.

But, true to form, Dillahunty slammed Slick at every point.  But Slick seemed unable

to absorb the Logical, Rational and Common Sense…

On Religious Repression

“I object to having to attend chapel 40 times before I graduate in order to earn a degree, sir.  I don’t see where the college has the right to force me to listen to a clergyman of whatever faith even once, or to listen to a Christian hymn invoking the Christian deity even once, given that I’m an atheist who is, to be truthful, deeply offended by the practices and beliefs of organized religion…I do not need the sermons of professional moralists to tell me how I should act.  I certainly…

Ignorance Of The Law Is No Excuse

Ignorance Of The Law Is No Excuse.........This statement has bothered me for many

years. I could not quite understand this statement. Then I realized I was looking at this

statement all wrong. You must look at this statement from the side of the judicial system,

cops and other law enforcement agencies. If this statement did not exist then that would

make the judicial system, cops and other law enforcement agencies so tied up that it

could take years to a try one…

People.....You Are Killing Your Children

I have heard it said that the Human Race is living at the bottom of an ocean of germs,

bacteria and virus's. The only thing that has allowed us to survive to today is because

our ancient ancestors had evolved an immune system that has the ability to fight off the

majority of these diseases.



But, if the Human Race does not allow the immune system to do its job, we will slowly

lose it and become dependant upon medicine. That is not good.



To retain a good…

gODS PLAN

When talking to theists, the theist will eventually say something to the effect like "It's part of

gODs plan".



Hmmmm......To me, when I make a plan I'm not sure of the outcome though I hope for a

positive outcome.



Example;



Lets say I want to go from Florida to Arizona. So...I get out my maps, calculator, pencil

and paper and make a list of what I need to do. THIS IS MY PLAN



Will my plan have a positive outcome? It's unknown till I reach…

Females and Bad Boys

Until recently, I could not understand the attraction that Females had for Bad Boys.



Example;

     I once knew a man that was a liar, cheat and thief. He had been in and out of

Jail and Prison MANY times, used very hard drugs and treated Females like they

were subhuman. Whatever you can think of that's rotten to do to a Female, he did.

 I was visiting the state where he lived and it just so happened that he was being

released from Prison the next day. So....I…
