<b>The Towering Strength of Science versus the debility of dogmatic religion</b>

The Towering Strength of Science
Millions of atheist scientists and other rational freethinkers know full well, through the application of unbiased commonsense and the results of millions of complex experiments and the calculations of astute experimental and theoretical physicists, that we humans inhabit a tiny part of what is a vast godless universe of immense age; and that we have good reason to infer that gods exist nowhere but in the imaginations, stories and lies of faith-driven men.

So how can bible-believers seriously defend their ever-shrinking part of the world against the supreme logic produced by elite scientists when there is no case to answer? Why are there faith-believers at all?

A principal reason is that once the fictions of faith get into people’s heads it is difficult to be rid of them. Indoctrinated when young, they indoctrinate the young of their own and of others, and the cycle of merciless irrationality continues.

These dogmatic bigots never let go—and that is because they never listen, their minds are already made up, and they are incapable of understanding and absorbing new knowledge no matter how thoroughly well-tested and proven the latter may be.

If freethinkers could only reason with the religious, there would be no religious. 
Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves”.

Only freethinkers and scientists see the universe clearly and correctly for its materiality and man’s place in it as an evolutionary accident but a marvel nonetheless.

Religionists sink inside the mental quagmire and nightmare of their own making for it is philosophically incontestable, when the evidence is well presented and the listener has a high enough level of intelligence and freedom of thought, that gods exist nowhere but inside people’s heads—and that is that.

Burnt Toast: Atheist Sees Image of the 'Birth of Earth' in a Piece of Toast

Atheist Sees Image of the 'Birth of Earth' in Burnt Toast

Yes it’s true.

This genuine picture was photographed in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, England by science atheist Dr. Terence Meaden earlier this month.

He could barely withhold his excitement.

“I was having breakfast when this piece of ciabatta toast got burnt,” he said. “Suddenly I was aware that the pattern of light and darkness across the toast resembled what could have been…

Today is the first anniversary of founding the "Origins" group

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 4:30pm 11 Comments

Today 15th September 2009 is the first anniversary of founding “Origins”.

I had joined Atheist Nexus in August 2008 and soon thought that a group discussing the ideas and problems of “origins” of any kind, whether real (through responsible scientific research, discovery and rational contemplation) or fallacious (as with unproven beliefs including the fraudulent religions and other swindles, impostures, deceits and hoaxes) would be helpful.

There have been 175 discussion… Continue

I am new to A/N -- haven't even been here a week yet -- and the groups that I have joined so far do not have a great deal of activity, but this one is different, and I am happy to become a member. Thanks for bringing the group to my attention.

Thank you Dr.Terence,
For such a warm welcome.
I just wish I could find critical rational thinking people in real life!
But I thank you again, so good to be free of relgion and the nonsensical ridiculousness of it all - free at last

Thank you so much, Dr. Meaden! It's nice to actually talk with someone who understands "living with cancer!" I must admit thatI've not been as open with it as I know I should be.

Funny. I went to Catholic school thru 8th grade. The nuns were good teachers. One fine day in choir practice, I realized I didn't /couldn't believe it. Both sides of my family are fervent, instinctive, untroubled Believers.

I found my stance in junior year HS, w/the help of a terrific English & French teacher.

Everybody feared Mrs. Rigsby but me. The sternly attractive Southern lady took a shine to me. Loaned me books. Assigned me college-level term papers. Introduced me to Camus.

I developed my own ontology. From which I've never wavered, even in the worst of VN and the worst to come.

I'm an Agnostic Existentialist, Camus-Kafka Division. The Absurd. Sisyphus. The Void. The Frightful Mystery.

I know nothing, believe nothing (except the US Founders and their bequests to us). Science keeps finding new horripilating mysteries. Yet I go on.

One night my company was deep in the jungle. Surrounded by an elite NVA Regiment. We were surely going to die.

We, mostly boys 18 to 22, solemnly shook hands and said Farewells to each other. Went to our emplacements to die.

Obviously didn't happen. My best guess is the NVA thought it was a ruse, a trap. Maybe it was, with us as bait.

Never thought about God or the afterlife, just Camus.

That's my little story. Best -- Rich

Goodness, thank you so much for your warm welcome! This place looks fantastic, and I'm very glad to be part of this community :-)

I'll definitely be checking out the groups you mentioned. There's so much to see! It'll probably take me a little while to become more familiar with Atheist Nexus.

Again, thank you so much for helping me settle in!

Thank you for the warm welcome. Sorry it took me so long to respond, it's been a busy summer!

Thank you. It's good to meet you. Until I started watching the, "Atheist Experience", show, I felt quite alone lol. I even disabled my facebook account because I was offending too many people with silly anti religion posters I made up. I will be posting them here when I have more time. They are comical, but they do poke fun at the absurdity of all religions, I will become more active when I am not so busy.. Thanks for the welcome Doctor!

At 7:37pm on June 30, 2015, Michael Davis said…

Thanks Terry.  It looks like there is a lot to see here.  I don't know why it took me 2 and a half years to find it.  Thanks for the heads up on that group.  I will check it out!
