Reason VS Survival of the Fittest

Oft times we nontheists focus on the dangers of religious ideologies. However, there exists within atheism a potential for hate that rivals the bloodiest of religious fanatics. I am talking of 'survival of the fittest.'  Evolution itself is predicated on the idea that we have evolved to our current biology as a means to make us superior to other species in the world. This is a fact of nature but need it be a fact of human interaction? Richard Dawkins believes it a terrible idea to base…

Ten Reasons Not To Believe

There’re many more reasons not to believe in the doctrines of organized religion.  These are ten of my favorites, not necessarily in the order listed.  You can probably think of many more. 

 

1.  If God is all-knowing, he knows the future before an event happens.  So before a baby is born, God knows if it’s going to hell or not.  If the baby is predestined to go “there” and God allows it to happen, we have to question if the Divine One is all-good.  I wonder if anyone ever…

Have you read about Rational Optimism from Matt Ridley?

My summer reading began with yard sale book by Matt Ridley called, "Genome"...and it was excellent! That lead me to do some intenet searching and I found him talking on several sites about Rational Optimism.  He is well worth looking into and fun to listen to...Life is not as bad as Fox makes it sound!

Have you seen the movie, "Atlas Shrugged: Part 1" yet?

I finally got the Netflix movie, "Atlas Shrugged: Part 1" and watched it this weekend. Both hubby and I got tears in our eyes from the subject matter and the ideas of Ayn Rand's Objectivism.  It stayed very close to the book, but it will come out in 3 parts with the next one due out in October.  A pain full wait is ahead of us and anyone else who loves this story.  Well worth seeing for all ages and mind sets. We loved it!…

Marriage and the Culture Wars

We read a lot in the culture wars about marriage, like it is a concept that has been around forever and everyone knows what it is. That isn't quite true. Marriage as we know it today, is a fairly recent invention. As recently as 500 years ago, few people in Europe bothered to get married. Only the landed classes tended to formalize marriage. There are many cultures that have or had no concept of marriage. Others practiced very different forms of marriage (think Muslim and Original Mormons).…

An Evolution debate on Youtube (The ending is worth the read!)

The fossil record is not proof for evolution. Where I can go see the geologic column? There is no such place, it can only be found in the textbooks. Darwinists will concoct elaborate scenarios and fabricated diagrams of all the layers perfectly aligned to fit the theory, but it's all make-believe, nothing real that can be tested or observed, just drawings. If you find some bones, there's no proof that it had ANY children before it…
