In case you hadn't tried it, DemocraticUnderground.com (DU) is a popular liberal blog, with an occasionally good Religion forum for believers and Nones to try and discuss issues reasonably.
After I was banned from DU, I asked here at A/N, in this discussion, "Are Democrats locking atheists…Continue

Hi all---My new post is up. You can read it here: Are Science and Religion Compatible?
First off, I'd like to say that if anyone could give me hard evidence of the existence of
a goD and this evidence could be tested by Scientists and proven to be true then I
would crawl through 100 miles of razor sharp glass just to kiss goDs feet. Simply
put, I am open minded to a certain point. The bIBLE can not be used as hard
evidence because it is a book of stories written 2000+ years ago, by humans that
were very ignorant of the reality around them. Plus, many of the…
First let me say that, when I refer to fossils I mean all species of animal, reptile, bird,
insect and arachnid fossilized remains found.
I have read that, as of 2010, the number of species living today are;
Mammals ..... = 5,490 .......X 2......... = 10,980
Birds............. = 9,998 .......X 2......... = 19,996
Reptiles........ = 9,084 ........X 2......... = 18,168
Insects... = 1,000,000 ........X 2.... = 2,000,000
Arachnids.. = 102,248 .......X…
I like to compare the Earth and its Environment to a Fish Bowl and its Environment.
Both are contained Environments, Both Environments are affected by the number of
Life Forms in them and Both Environments are affected by the amount of pollution in
You may say that the Earth is much bigger and, in being so, allows it to handle the
detrimental effects thrust upon it. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Earth
can not get rid of the life that is living…

I would really like to know how the Astronomers use "Red Shift", in the light spectrum,
to determine the distance to a very distant objects (see title).
The way I understand what the astronomers are doing is:
1. gather the light from a very distant object.
2. Pass the gathered light through a prism
3. Measure how far the red light has shifted. The more it shifts the farther away it is.
If this is where they stop their calculation of distance, to the very…Continue
I really like to just think. Let your mind go and let the thoughts flow through your mind.
I also do this to help me go to sleep. It's hard to explain what happens, it's like I release
control of my thinking process and my mind starts going "What if this", "What if this",
"What if this", "What if this", "What if this", "What if this", then maybe a good thought
comes through and I say whoa, lets think about that for awhile. This may sound crazy
but its worked for me…

without proof or evidence.

ago and by people that thought the light from the Moon was…

Astronomers and the like say that the Background Microwave Radiation, that is present no matter where a Radio Telescope is pointed, is the residue of the light from the "Big Bang" that created our Universe. I'm pretty sure they say that over time (10 - 20 billion of our years) the frequency of the light, from the "Big Bang", has slowed down to the frequencies in the MicroWave band.
Ok......That is both acceptable and unacceptable to me.
Acceptable> Light traveling for…Continue

I know I'm behind the times but, I just saw the Debate(?) between Matt Slick and
Matt Dillahunty. I have to admit that Matt is Slick. I don't know about other people but,
their debate, to me, was weird. Slick appeared to try, exceptionally hard, to win the
debate through confusion and get Dillahunty to admit something. See I'm confused.
But, true to form, Dillahunty slammed Slick at every point. But Slick seemed unable
to absorb the Logical, Rational and Common Sense…

“I object to having to attend chapel 40 times before I graduate in order to earn a degree, sir. I don’t see where the college has the right to force me to listen to a clergyman of whatever faith even once, or to listen to a Christian hymn invoking the Christian deity even once, given that I’m an atheist who is, to be truthful, deeply offended by the practices and beliefs of organized religion…I do not need the sermons of professional moralists to tell me how I should act. I certainly…Continue
Ignorance Of The Law Is No Excuse.........This statement has bothered me for many
years. I could not quite understand this statement. Then I realized I was looking at this
statement all wrong. You must look at this statement from the side of the judicial system,
cops and other law enforcement agencies. If this statement did not exist then that would
make the judicial system, cops and other law enforcement agencies so tied up that it
could take years to a try one…

I have heard it said that the Human Race is living at the bottom of an ocean of germs,
bacteria and virus's. The only thing that has allowed us to survive to today is because
our ancient ancestors had evolved an immune system that has the ability to fight off the
majority of these diseases.
But, if the Human Race does not allow the immune system to do its job, we will slowly
lose it and become dependant upon medicine. That is not good.
To retain a good…

Until recently, I could not understand the attraction that Females had for Bad Boys.
I once knew a man that was a liar, cheat and thief. He had been in and out of
Jail and Prison MANY times, used very hard drugs and treated Females like they
were subhuman. Whatever you can think of that's rotten to do to a Female, he did.
I was visiting the state where he lived and it just so happened that he was being
released from Prison the next day. So....I…
