Astrology.

Carl Sagan once said: 'The desire to be connected with the cosmos, reflects a profound reality. But we are connected; not in the trivial ways that Astrology promises, but in the deepest ways.' I have…Continue

The medium of Morality.

Why oh why, might I ask, am I, a humble atheist who maintains a constant, yet distant respect for Christians, constantly criticized and barrages with comments on my morality?  Christians seem to…Continue

"To understand what Sagan is saying, you need to have watched Cosmos, as this video is taken from that 13 hour long documentary.    When he says 'connected' and 'deep', he is talking about the very fact that we are made…"

"really? how so? i can't even define what he's saying, much less validate it. what does it mean to be "connected" (or what does he mean) and what constitutes a "deep way"? this kind of language just doesn't mean…"

Ganapati P replied to Ethan Mitchell's discussion 'Astrology.'
"From a materialist-determinist, which is what most atheists claim to be, point of view, all the lives must, at least theoretically, be predictable. So why should it suprise anyone that there are indicators for predicting the course of…"

"There is not much believing involved in what Sagan said and meant by that. It is a matter of fact."

Kir Komrik replied to Ethan Mitchell's discussion 'Astrology.'
"i would disagree with the above statement only because i do not believe that "... we are connected ... in the deepest ways". other than that, just hearing the word "astrology" makes me laugh and cry at the same time.   - kk"

"One good thing about astrology, from the development of this, genuine science began. People began questioning what the church told them. Some folks wanted to find answers and began experimenting. But, it was just the beginning. The church pushed…"

"If anyone wants to send me large diamonds, I will be quite happy to test their properties. The ability to be converted into large amounts of cash would probably be one of the first experiments, though I can always use more earrings :-)"

"I really appreciate all the comments and links you've all posted :DGood show folks.And what about people who believe in the 'properties' of 'special' stones?  Some people wear stones, like topaz for example, in order to…"

"I suppose Tarot cards and palm readers should be placed on the chopping block next. People's willingness to believe absolute bullshit is troubling."

"It's nonsense! It's just a substitute for religion since some people don't go to church anymore because they disagree with it. However, they don't want to give up believing in some supernatural stuff. It really is nonsense!"
