The Universe equals everything which exists.
The Universe consists of matter (dark and visible) and energy.
None of the aforementioned things are supernatural.
Nothing which exists is supernatural.
In the endless and tiresome bickering/debating over god's existence why is it that theists are not attempting to substantiate their claims by finding heaven and hell?
Am wondering whether any of you have known a theist to do so? Ever hear of a theist becoming a physicist/astronomer so that she can find out about heaven? Does heaven emit something that we can detect? Black holes do. Why not heaven? Do souls travel at the speed of light? How long does it take to reach heaven once a…Continue
Greeting, all. The following is a short vignette about life as an atheist in Muslim countries. Enjoy!
A few months ago, I decided, against my better judgement, to date a girl whose mentality was my polar opposite. I was a secular, westernized, freedom-loving hedonist, and she a pious Lebanese Muslim who, like many of her peers, was being torn at the seams by the clash between the forces of modernity and her religion.
To a certain extent,…Continue
I am getting terribly frustrated lately with a certain experience, and the more I think on it, the more I believe it to be a common one among Americans and maybe the world in general. The experience I refer to is in trying to express myself to a religious person and having that person cut off the conversation because my facts or opinions make them uncomfortable.…Continue
Let me start off by saying this simply an idea I have from time to time, I consider it a fun existential mental game. It's likely reasons like this most of my friends think I'm macabre and dark lol. This is not reflective of reality nor is it the sum total of my position or outlook on life or the world. I consider myself a reasonably happy person and not particularly depressed so any who get that vibe please understand that its totally ok to embrace the darker emotions (sadness, loss,…Continue
Ok so click bate title I know, and no there's not a water bottle that fills itself. Why? Well that inconvenient thing called math, and observable, measurable science.
And here in lies the problem. So many people fund idiotic ideas like this because they think you "don't need math" to deny cosmology, physics, science, instead you need to just sit there and think, and if it makes sense to you then you must be right! Totally laughable. Yet many fall for it. Millions of dollars…Continue
One reason I don't believe in God is intellectual. I am not at all convinced by the arguments given for God's existence by the Theistic philosophers, neither the cosmological argument & the design argument nor the 32 other specious arguments favouring God’s existence, which to a person not science-savvy might be plausible.
A second reason I don't believe in God is emotional. I am comfortable with not having answers to everything. By temperament, I have a high tolerance for…Continue
Sadly, most people are Sheeple. Even some of those who claim to be freethinkers are being manipulated without their awareness thereof.
Blindly following programmed lives, conditioned from birth, just as their parents were, for generations, to be worker-consumers.
Nothing more, nothing less, just producing & consuming.
Conditioned to be distracted by NFL, the latest episode of FRIEND's, & Lady Gaga, to see, much less care…
I was teased as a kid. Some days were better than others and some others weren’t so great, but the fact is that from the time I entered first grade through high school graduation, there was something in me which drew the jibes, catcalls and slanders from my fellow students. Somehow I was different, though exactly how I had no idea back then. This whole business was made worse by the fact that for a great deal of that time, I was hyper-sensitive to that kind of abuse and could not…Continue
