What religion, if any did you ever practice?

I wanted to take an informal poll.  My question is the result of a discussion I had with a high octane Christian friend of mine.  In a rare occurrence we broached the topic of religion.  At one point…Continue

Well, this sucks. Citing a crisis of national identity and mass confusion among Americans about their nation’s motto, the House on Tuesday voted on a resolution “reaffirming ‘In God We Trust’ as the…Continue

I'm guessing this has been discussed before but i got into a debate with a religious (christian) friend of mine.  It started with "Well, atheists don't believe in anything" and ended with him saying…Continue

Texas Gun Store add

This is an actually radio add by a gun store in Mason Texas for a concealed handgun license course.  It's the end that funny or sad or something.  The reason I've posted this to Atheist Nexus is at the end of the add he says he won't teach the gun class to Non-christian Arab or Muslims.  I was just wonder if he'd teach the class to non-Christian Atheists.  Not that any of us would be caught dead in a redneck, hillbilly crap hole like his store.…See More

Karl replied to DarkBlack's discussion The compatibility of religion and science.
"Science is based on rational thought and testable principles.  Religion is based on irrational belief in magical people or creatures, mythology and superstition.  The two will never be compatible.     "

I appreciate your logic in approaching topics here in the nexus.

I liked your response to the ghost topic. Ghosts, horoscopes, psychic healing, religion, etc. are all the same thing to me. It is about people thinking that fantasy is real. Nonsense is embraced and people end up making decisions that are based on nonsense.

Greetings, Karl! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Lol  I look forward to pouring a glass of wine for you, just to see those reactions across the bar! 


I was recently talking about atheism with a friend in public when a stranger, an older woman, interrupted me to say that she is a paid subscriber of the Freedom From Religion Foundation magazine!  She was so happy to hear another atheist speaking openly and wants to start attending local meetups. 


I'm still excited about that random public connection!

Welcome Karl!  I agree with what you wrote and sometimes I feel like we atheists have yet to achieve full rights in this religious society. 



How's life for an atheist in Leesburg?
