"Zut alors, maybe yes, Loren. But the vision that came to me at that powerfully climactic moment all those years ago was that it was an image of the creation of planet Earth in a way particularly well manifest. "

"[Loren squints at the image above and wonders...] Is that supposed to be the Big Bang or a map of the Cosmic Background Microwave Radiation?  {grin!}"

<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.

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.

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!

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!

Thanks for the hello!  Not from a hardcore religious background, but it has always just seemed the way.  THE GOD DELUSION made me see the light.

Thanks for the warm welcome. It's a nice environment I am finding myself in.

At 11:53pm on May 29, 2015, Naomi Beebe said…

Thank you so much for the warm welcome.  I had to take a break from Facebook for a while, and some of the religious nuts on there.  I hate to say it, but I came from a family of missionaries and Moody Bible Institute grads and despite knowing my beliefs (or rather disbeliefs), they continue to post what "Jesus has done" for them today, etc.  It gets really taxing and I needed a place to get away from all of that nonsense.

Glad to be here. Gawd is Good. LOL

Thanks for the greeting. I feel quite welcome.
