"Hello Andrew Welcome to this friendly Internet community of rationality and peace, common sense and freethinking evidence-based wisdom.
We invite you to visit and join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy,…"
"I thought you were going to say that the person cut you off and wouldn't let you get a word in edgewise, because that was my most recent experience. I was verbally run over with my "associate's" strident, dogmatic nonsense,…"
"But the dysfunctionality of the GOP, while amusing, is not particularly a deterrent to its rank and file supporters, high profile though it may be. It may be the equivalent of the Jerry Springer show, but it's not enough to chase people to the…"
"I really doubt there's a direct connection between this act of violence and Islam, as seems to be implied. This could easily have happened in any other place in the world. This was an experiment waiting for failure, including assertions that…"
"Like private schools, some of the motivation for homeschooling comes from those opposed to public schools based on their religious and moral beliefs. I'm not saying that kids from home schools invariably or necessarily end up more poorly…"
"Like so many of religion's extraordinary claims, extraordinary evidence is required, to quote a famous guy. Excessive reliance on anecdotal information without any means of proof is, I believe, one of the fundamental reasons we're all here."
"William Jennings Bryan? You mean the "great orator" that was a passionate opponent of "Darwinism" as they called it in his day? The guy who was instrumental in the Scopes Trial? I'll bet most of the Trump crowd doesn't…"
"I'm a public high school teacher at age 60, and there is not enough room here to list the differences between my students today and my classmates in the '70s. Further, this is my second career, so I was disconnected from youth for almost…"
"I'm certainly no anthropologist and have no background in the subject, but this assertion gives me pause. While it seems intuitive to me that communal rituals and activities among members of tribes or within cultural groups create a sense of…"
"John, I personally have never been so disappointed and disillusioned with America as I am now. The people have spoken and the results are alarming. I'm less concerned with the person of Trump than with the phenomenon of Trump. That our…"
Hello Andrew Welcome to this friendly Internet community of rationality and peace, common sense and freethinking evidence-based wisdom.
We invite you to visit and join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 1100 discussion topics and 4180 members. http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/originsuniverselifehumankindanddarwin There are over 1100 groups in Atheist Nexus. Do go visiting and try "Hang with Friends". Terry
There are LOTS of groups and forums to explore here. I particularly recommend the active, relaxed, freewheeling Hang With Friends. Texas Heathens is worth a look too; and Writing to Congress offers inspiration on ways to respond to our "unpresidented" political landscape.
Groups don't clutter up a "timeline" or "news feed" page; some of us are members of many dozens.
And I keep discovering things through the "Latest Activity" in the lower right of each page. (Mobile view: menu, Activity.)
