Poll: Do You Believe in Socialism?

Started this discussion. Last reply by JC Hamner May 30, 2011. 42 Replies

Lately, I've been realizing I'm a rare specimen among the atheist community... I'm against socialism. There, I said it. And no, I will not meet you at the swing set after school. I've spoken with a…Continue

I Just Need to Know, Why are YOU here?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mo Trauen Jan 5, 2011. 49 Replies

     For the better part of my life, I've realized I was an atheist. I didn't know the term, but I always knew I didn't believe in god, or the idiocy I read in the bible. Now, I don't know about the…Continue

'Crossing yourself'

Started this discussion. Last reply by Christopher McGuire Jun 27, 2010. 6 Replies

I just noticed something, and it kind of makes me wonder... I know I have a long neck and whatnot, but it still seems that this idea of 'crossing yourself' ends up forming an upside-down cross on…Continue

Is School Out for Most Atheists?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Belle Rose Jan 21. 61 Replies

I know what led me here, and I also know that my original premise was faulty. I came here (atheism) straight out of Christianity. I hadn't, at that point, read any other religious texts. I just went…Continue

"That looks like a pretty good article, thank you. It starts out with the paragraph, below. Perhaps altruism is a realistic goal that can be encultured, even if it's not genetically instantiated... as long as it doesn't get too Borgy! "

Dennis Augustine replied to Christopher McGuire's discussion 'Is School Out for Most Atheists?'
"Religion is one of the most powerful forces in our world and may well contribute a world war if left unchecked. To stay ignorant of it is... ignorant. No, you don't have to be an expert but to say it doesn't matter is stupid."

Why you left your religion.
I left religion because it's all horseshit. I never really did believe the stories I was told as a child, I was always waiting for the Santa-esque punchline to come. When it didn't, I realized I had rational superiority over all those idiots at the church. And all the free fucking Sunday Morning doughnuts in the world weren't gonna change MY mind.

Good... I'm a fallen angel because I think I like the accusation from fundies that I am a satanist. lmao! If I'm going to be from the devil I am going to be as damned as I can be! [Hence the fallen angel thing] lol. Anyhow... how have you been?

OK - I am a dumbass!  I just realized what your last name is...some days, I just don't know about me!

Hi Maggie!  What and why Maggie?  You are right about being careful...I drive with adrenaline pumping through my body a lot of the time.  I am really considering taking the anti religious stickers off because I am getting too old to kick someone's ass anymore...but I would probably find a way to fuck them up!

Peace,

Becky
