The moderated facebook group Atheism is an active community of some 10.000 members with lots of intense debate, but we are always trying to proselytize ;)
Read the rules, join and say hi!

I think it's amusing that Facebook and Family Bullshit can both use the initials "FB". That's all I seem to be getting lately. Here's the latest exchange I've had with my family.
My initial status read:
"The Bible sure is full of some crazy shit. Do believers really read this shit? If so, do they really understand this shit? Am I tripping? Am I feeling myself?"
It wasn't a very random thought. I was reading the Bible at the… Continue

And I can't be the only one!
Is anyone else just the least bit disturbed by how integrated everything is getting on the internet? Maybe I'm just old and fussy, or maybe I just value both my time and my privacy enough that I don't want to squander one to control the other, but I really don't like this trend of running every little thing that is done on the internet through facebook or twitter. I don't "tweet" at all, but I started an account when it was first getting popular, made a… Continue

Over on Facebook, a Christian, named Shawn, attempted to challenge my atheism. He said: “The way I look at it you have a 50/50 chance of being right. So what happens if you are wrong? I will even ask you this: what happens if you are right?”
The following is my reply . . .
You’re paraphrasing Pascal’s wager, Shawn. According to Wikipedia . . .
Pascal’s Wager (or Pascal’s Gambit) is a suggestion posed by the French philosopher,…

So I was just on facebook and I saw that someone I knew posted "2011 IS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT WORSHIP", and about 11 people commented and "liked" it. I wish Facebook had a "dislike" button or a "This is fucking idiotic" button. The status just made me instantly angry. So to understand this person correctly, they plan to spend 2011 on their knees worshiping an invisible non-interfering god from iron age Palestine. Sorry...let me go over it again...I can't quite grasp the stupidity of it… Continue

Just a quick note to say that Atheist Nexus is now my online social networking site because I quit facebook. I just couldn't stand to be a part of them after they caved to islam. My family and friends are mad at me, but I think I'll be ok. I might go through a few withdrawals when I can't read what my sisters horoscope says or how much luck my niece has on her luck meter today. Oh well, I suppose I'll just have to take it one day at a time.… Continue

In the past year, Facebook has transformed itself from a 'social networking' site to a 'we'll now use ALL your info to sell to third parties' website.
I like the idea of social networking, but this is no longer Facebook's mainstay. Social networking is now strictly a subterfuge to garner all your private information.http://www.quitfacebookday.com
I invite all my friends to seriously consider the true nature of the "New"… Continue

One thing that I continually come across is the stigma that if you accept the Theory of Evolution as fact, that you MUST be an Atheist. To be blunt, it pisses me off that this persists - Not only do they think they are synonymous, but they associate it with evil. I've come across Atheists who do not fully accept Evolution as the correct theory to describe the diversity of life. Conversely, I know MANY religious folk (including my Catholic girlfriend and her family) who do accept… Continue

Lately, the active atheist community on Facebook has found their Facebook pages being disabled for abuse when theists, offended by our point of view, report us as being abusive. Numerous atheists on Facebook have been disabled or have had warnings that they will be disabled. Many emails and messages have been exchanged between non-theists about this issue. Many, if not most atheists are reinstated. Some have even been issued apologies.
I am only the latest in a long line of atheists… Continue

Its been a while sense I posted anything so why not start by defending blogging.
I read an article in Weird called "Kill Your Blog". (You can read it here
(it has a different name which made it hard to find)) His arguments are that that blogging has been flooded by "Cut-rate" journalists, underground marketing campaigns that are "drowning out the authentic voices of amateur wordsmiths" its hard to get readers,… Continue

Here in Springfield, Illinois the culture is predominantly religious based, so activities in the community that don't cost any money are awash with religious-based programs and activities that require exposure to "scripture."
I am aware of local Freethinker Meetups that gather once a month, but the last few I missed because of my work schedule. There is one Unitarian Universalist Congregation here, but I totally reject all religion and organizations that tolerate all… Continue

The following is a note I wrote on facebook for my friends there (posted yesterday, 7/27/08), but I thought I'd cross-post it here... Maybe you all have some good feedback.
Why is Robby an Atheist / Bright / Humanist? And what does it all mean?
I know many of my friends and acquaintances may have noticed my "religious views" here on facebook and may or may not be surprised/shocked/horrified. If you haven't yet noticed, let me put it all out there: I don't believe in any sort… Continue

Well, I'm new to Atheist Nexus, and I already like it a lot. It's neat to be on a social networking site with people who have share many of the same interests beliefs and experiences as myself, but there's still a lot of controversy and difference to keep things interesting. (I've already met a few people that I'm pissed at!) It's nice to not have to type in "religious beliefs" and worry about what people might think when they read it. It's nice to search for groups without feeling compelled to… Continue
