Theist Propaganda – Creation – the movie about Charles Darwin

OK.

 

Who’s seen this movie?

 

And who knows the history?

 

I got the movie out, knowing nothing about it.  I watched the whole thing, surprised that it had some supernatural type scenes in it – in the form of dream sequence, but going along with the creativity of the movie all the same.

 

Then I get to the extra bits.  The making of the movie type thing on the DVD.  And I get a whole lot of Christian propaganda. 

 

What…

Sextus Empiricus

OK now we're getting somewhere. I like what this guy is on about. A bit from Wik below - but there is lots more on the wik page. I like this stuff, and wouldn't mind having a discussion about this further from those interested or who can express their own understanding of this philosophical perspective - and it's implications for life generally and personally.



This from Wik:



Sextus Empiricus raised concerns which applied to all types of knowledge. He doubted the validity… Continue

Pyrrho

Hi,



I've been told I might be a Pyrrhoist. I'm not so sure! LOL



Perhaps I am. But then again, perhaps I'm not. I do have some quite strong views on life, and I do believe that we can know some stuff. But really what I've read below, is all that I know about Pyrrho. So if you know more and can enlighten me further - please do! :)



This from Wik:



The main principle of Pyrrho's thought is expressed by the word acatalepsia, which connotes the ability to… Continue

Help needed to support social justice for atheists in Australia

Hi,

 

An Atheist contact of mine has recently written an article for Online Opinion.

 

It is about the battle of the right of religious employers to discriminate on religious grounds when employing people in Victoria, Australia.

 

“In 2010 the Labor government of Victoria instigated legislation to prevent religious institutions from discriminating against employees on religious grounds where those employees were not employed to perform religious…

Help! Quantum Mechanics, Randomness and Causality

I really want to know what I can rely on. I want to know if my brain is fully caused - or has a possibility of QM caused randomness. I'm told that I can feel safe that it is fully caused - but I'm suspicious that QM may play a role and therefore randomness may be a possibility.



I suppose just like the notion of free will.... what we believe to be true, doesn't actually change anything in reality... which is comforting....



But what are the implications of either being fully… Continue

What the!!???

Learn Biblical Hebrew online with the Holy Land’s best teacher…???

How come we're getting these sorts of ad's on an atheist network ?

Did I miss something... who takes care of the advertising on here?

I wonder if they know they are wasting their money, or if they are aware, and are trying to save us all!

Share the LoVe

Come and join in the discussion at the Nonviolent / Compassionate Communication group!



After reading the book Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B Rosenberg, I’m very taken with his ideas about Nonviolent or Compassionate Communication. I can see that they can give us useful skills in dealing with our every day lives and improve the quality of our lives and the lives of those around us, when we have a go at applying his techniques.



He basically provides tools and… Continue

Right/wrong/good/bad - what are your values? Please share for brain reformat!

What's been really troubling me recently is this right/wrong/good/bad/evil/other stuff. After reading a couple of posts here today, which is just so refreshing - having been desperate for this sort of naturally based world view for such a long time now - being surrounded by Theists friends and family!!!



Anyhow, it was a relief today reading that there is no good/bad etc. Because really when we look at it, we just are here... and it's a simple as that. Then I go into my 'real' life… Continue

Wow My First Blog Spot...

Hi Guys,

 

I'm happy that my first blog spot is in the midst of a group of like-minded atheists!

 

But now, I'm stunned as to what I want to say.

 

I was talking with a friend yesterday about wanting a Blog spot, and here now I find that I have one... Well what to do now!

 

OK, perhaps I need to go an have a look at some other blogs and find out what is out there in Blog world.  Is it a place to spew out our hatred on the world, or a…
