A right-brain basis for atheism?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael E Davis May 11, 2013. 15 Replies

It's considered correct for atheists to insist we have values. But the values I see us testifying to come mostly from past movements and ages. Atheism doesn't seem to  generate any new values…Continue

Why natural selection doesn't work

Posted on January 27, 2015 at 5:17pm 45 Comments

Natural selection is no mere idle fancy. Every so the logic behind it stirs a call for eugenics.
