Documentation of black atheism, freethought, & humanism on the web can be found in my atheist web guide.

I also have a general interest blog, Reason & Society.

Some of you may also be interested in some of my other projects, e.g. The Autodidact Project, my Studies in a Dying Culture (blog), and my Emergence blog. You can also listen to my podcasts: my Internet radio show is called "Studies in a Dying Culture," hosted by Think Twice Radio.

The slave mother had to guide the slave child because the slave father could not be a real father. It then seemed safer for her to teach her children anything that would keep them alive. This to me is the reason why the black woman is so religious. She had the responsibility to transcend masters oppressive beliefs to her offsprings.

Tell me about it. I have a family of "scrong Black women" that eat at my ASS NERVE (lol) with this mess. It turns my stomach when they praise Jesus and 'claim' their 'God-given' right to prosperity while they struggle in life due to just plain 'ole IGNORANCE.

It is disgusting at times, when people refuse to look beyond the end of their nose. They are all unknowing athiests, they just reject one less god.

Man I'm truly disgusted by the people (of all races) who cannot see through religion.

Welcome, Blind Dog. You look mighty familiar, but then, I guess you wouldn't know that.

Great to see this group. Black free thought needs to be spread a lot more.

I am talking about conspiracies that exist. Astrotheology and the mason craft.. I am not a fascist, I think all people should be treated equally. People immediately run to "oh look, more CT paranoia BS" thanks to the media. Just remember that if they made a movie about it, its probably just make believe guys :) You want to talk about fascism, your going to pop another forum discouraging people from this sort of information?
Im done debating this with you. I will continue to show this to other people, and I will continue to hear discouragement from people(s) like you, but its not going to stop or discourage me in anyway. The Zeitgeist movement and the Venus Project are very important for people to atleast know about. Let them dispute it themselves.

I see I'm going to have to start a new thread on this subject. Too many coincidences, occult conspiracy theories--this is the very stuff of superstitious thinking, which in the modern world is the royal road to fascism. I've dealt with this in a couple of my discussion threads in this group. We need to learn to distinguish rational investigation into the conspiracies that have actually existed from crypto-fascist occultist paranoia. This is not; we should demand a higher standard.

well all in all, they all have the same "function" my friend. Control. When you say nonsense about masons, they are the ones that carry out the will of the elitists. They dont off their own for talking about where their "secret tree house" is... I understand if you think im bats**t crazy, and for awhile I disregarded it also. I'm just saying there are waaay too many coincidences for this to be assumed "paranoia".

So if you wanna leave it be that's fine with me sir. This discussion board isnt about that anyway, and that is fair.

I wonder whether here in the US or in other countries where people struggle with poverty and being under-educated, we cant assume this just happens because the people do not have the means. Keeping people under-educated and brainwashed with religion will always be the suppressing "opiate for the masses". Do you agree?
