Started this discussion. Last reply by Roger Wehage Apr 23, 2013. 32 Replies

With Paul Ryan's selection as the vice-presidential candidate with Mitt Romney, much is being made of Ayn Rand and her philosophy of "greed is good, charity is evil."  Since Rand was an atheist, I…Continue

Atheism requires religion to prosper.

Posted on January 1, 2017 at 11:44am 8 Comments

The atheist movement seems to be losing ground as its adherents grow in number.  I propose that this will continue until everybody who counts has no supernatural beliefs, and atheism as a movement is dead.

Hi to Jerry Mesner in Albuquerque. Welcome to this great meeting place with its rational people who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
