<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.

I wish a Merry IsaacNewtonMas to everyone, everywhere.

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 told my Catholic brother that the Catholic church had objected and protested the discovery of the Higgs Boson because of the claim that the Higgs gave mass to the universe, clearly an intrusion on the Church's magisteria and theological bailiwick.

I was not invited to Easter dinner.

Thanks, Terence, much appreciated.

I'm new to groups, but would like to know how to share some of my articles and excerpts from my book that people enjoy and get a kick out of.

For example, when Zach found Jesus late in life (Zach's life), I told him not to sweat if because gods are like auto parts - all fail in time. We went back and forth until I asked him how much Jesus had charged him for his frontal lobotomy, and it went downhill from there.

How do I submit articles?

Hello Terry,

Thank you for the welcome. I see you are at Oxford. I want you to promise next time you walk the halls of Magdalen that you'll remember me, silently, to Oscar Wilde. He is my all time hero. But you might also put in a warm thought for Antony Flew.

I'm in the US, but have been to the UK three times thus far. I have visited "that other university," but am ashamed to have never seen Oxford. Having devoured Brideshead Revisited repeatedly over the past thirty years, that is a real regret.

I am a retired mathematician (actually, I just quit when a Dean wished me to lower expectations), with a passion for language and poetry. And of course, wishing that humans would assign praise to something other than a deity.

Best wishes,

Thank you very much for the amazing welcome. :) 

I will definitely take a look at the Origins group. Right now my goal is to learn as much as possible via books, informative meetup groups, and now Athiest Nexus. Thanks again.

Thank you Dr. Meaden for the welcome! I'm stoked to be here with open minded people. I see that your a Dr., may I ask what you have gotten your doctorate? Also I noticed your from the UK, I would like to ask you about what is happening with the Muslim community in your area. No hate I assure you, just wondering what someone from the UK has to say.

Greetings to you too Dr. Meaden. I'll say its such a great pleasure meeting you. Thank you very much for the warm welcome, I'm indeed proud to be apart of this and I hope that as time goes on, I'll have the opportunity to know you more and also learn from you at the same time.

Thanks for the words of wisdom, which I have tried to comply with. Further, I have created a new group 'Save India, Purge Out Gods and Religions' (under approval) to help Indian to understand the reality. Your support through joining is requested.

Dr. Meaden, thank you for your warm welcoming to this group.  I am a very busy contractor and will only have time to check in during my slow times.  But I am already impressed with what I see and I know I'm going to be inspired by fellow heathens here.
