"Yeah, you really have to wonder if it's just pure ignorance or they really are pushing lies to their followers. I'd like to believe the former because it means there's room to educate and change their minds...if it's the…"
http://rockbeyondbelief.com/I just checked the site and it looks like there MAY be a small stumbling block, but barring that issue the Rock Beyond Belief is stated to be taking place April 2nd and I was wondering if there would be people interested in carpooling/convoying down there that Saturday... Plenty of time to think about it, but I just didn't want to drive down there alone! My wife has a prior engagement that is preventing her from attending…See More

"I'm with you buddy. I've emailed PZ Meyers, trying to get the survey pharyngulated. This is the third mention of this on Atheist Nexus that I've seen. I'm hoping we can shut this down before it becomes necessary…"

Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8000 good friends.
A useful science-based group to join, with its 125 discussions and numerous video films, is “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion....).
One discussion (over 70 posts) is "Proud to be Atheist".
