 Obviously, you are not a happy person if you are an atheist and have to write about it on a cardboard box stuck in the back of your car. For the sake of anything you love, why don't you buy a Darwin…Continue

"The word "spiritual" can, and often does, denote some form of deity but it also means "something that affects the human spirit", i.e., sans a deity. So, it's a term that is fair to use in both contexts. "

FM2030, the guy who made transhumanism popular for his 15 minutes of fame. He was Persian, and made lots of predictions about the future. But his predictions were not based on magic. His predictions were made by looking at how the past had changed up until the present and then thinking about the next logical change that will occur in regards to a specific human experience. 

 

I just read an interesting book written by him called 'Identity card', written in 1965. After reading it, I felt that Iran hasn't changed at all, even with the revolution.

 

Sorry, I'm not Persian, but Australian. I lived in Iran for a year, 2009. Went to Tehran university to study Farsi.

سلام ساسان ، حال شما چطور است؟
من در ایران برای 1 سال زندگی کردم
برای من ، خیلی خوب بود .
It's hard to write Persian here, one mistake and the words go all over the place.

Have you ever heard of FM2030?

Hi Sassan!  How's school going?

I like the new photos you posted and the Darwin quote you have on your website.

Sassan K. I've enjoyed your posts regarding Atheism Harm vs. Religion's Harm. I agree with you that the Nazi party were Christians.  Hope you are enjoying your day!  Good luck with school.  : )

'The pop singer tweeted a photo of theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, along with the word “beautiful.” On the photo is one of his quotes that reads, “You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all things that matter for evolution) weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars…
