"Martin, if I tried to answer all your questions I would need to write a book. But I don't need to answer.  Or perhaps it's that I can remove your need for answers in one sentence. There is not god.  There never has been one, and…"

"There are more questions than answers, and almost every answer uncovers more questions. Despite the opinions of people seeped in religion, I don't think god as we know it has any answers."

"Well, maybe so... I would like to think so. I also think that simplicity is always the best place to start when facing a difficult, or any problem. The greatest complexity has simple roots."

"Those are very good questions, Martin. I've always wondered why god gave us wisdom teeth that we cannot use and have to have pulled out, but he gave us very little wisdom. It's like this marvelous god made our mouths too small."

Questions from a religiously confused little man

Questions from a religiously confused little manI’m a simple man, I think common sense and reason, to the best of my ability, is the only way to understand how things work and what makes them work. The idea of a god and the explanations by religions of who god is, how many gods and other supernatural beings there are, and what they do is very confusing. So some of my questions are...If there is only one god, why are there so many religions?Which religion is the one that god started, and how do…See More

The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens

The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens

 

1/ Oxygen (air). The element oxygen is imperative for almost all life on Earth. Our atmosphere is 21% oxygen with the rest made up almost entirely of nitrogen along with other gases at pretty much trace levels. Oxygen is the element in air that allows animals, including humans, to conduct the chemistry of life. The 21% is critical because below 17% not enough oxygen is present to allow for comfortable…

Does God control who wins the lottery?

Does God control who wins the lottery?

 

The answer is, OF COURSE, providing that He/She/It actually exists in form and function as described and defined by any of the current religions that are based on the belief that a God with the supernatural powers, human behavioral orientation, and intense interest in the conduct and outcome of individual and collective human affairs actually exists. After all, god is reputed to know and care about every sparrow that falls to the…

So, you want to defeat ISIS...

In order to defeat ISIS, it is necessary, very necessary, to destroy the foundation of extremist, fundamentalist Islamic religious belief. It is possible to do this by attacking the ISIS stronghold of the city of Dabiq in northern Syria, decisively defeating protecting ISIS forces, and…

Perception and Religion

Posted on November 20, 2015 at 9:43am 3 Comments

Something we seldom realize or consider when we take a position on, well, pretty much everything, but especially on matters of politics, culture, and religion is that, to use an old and hackneyed phrase, ‘Perception is Reality”. And human perception depends on many things, including the culture that formed the human mind, the environment we occupy, the current state of human knowledge (that changes over…

Quit claiming to be a man of science and an atheist if you're going to post about how you had a vivid dream about gawd. Why would you do that? There are better sites to troll, and really you guys are seriously annoying, and you give a bad name to theists everywhere.

Hi Martin. I hear you--both on learning to navigate this site and on your dismissal of religion and leanings toward science. About the same time (actually 1954), when I was 11, I saw Saturn through a telescope and it blew me away. Leonardo da Vinci became my idol. Eventually, I became a science teacher which gave me a grand opportunity to impress the subject on young minds and indirectly diminish religion. I had to walk a fine line there!

Anyway, continue to explore the site and jump in any time.
