I'd like to know if anyone has ever challenged believers as to why their god has never bought in to e-mail. Followers are so steeped in their personal relationship with god. But is only as personal…Continue
"And like I said, they don't really look all that fast just standing there. Gazelles have more of that "built for speed" look, and of course cheetahs with their flexible spines and aerodynamic shape (small head, low profile) look…"
"I looked it up. You're right about the American cheetah not being a direct ancestor of the African cheetah. Pronghorns are remarkable critters. And the funny thing is, they don't really look as fast as thompson gazelles, though that matter…"
"I don't get the impression from Wikipedia that the (extant) African cheetah is a descendant from the extinct North American one.
You're right about the pronghorn not being a true antelope (I see them here all the time, by the way). …"
"I think evidence is one thing, proof is another. Evolution is true through the preponderance of the evidence. I don't think there's any sort of "There you have it: That proves that evolution is true" sort of fact.
Anyway, why is…"
"My wife and I take an entirely different approach. Religions pretend to have answers about the world and they disregard evidence or even its importance. This is by itself a failed method of understanding the Universe. We know it, so they must know…"
"Kevin is a superb vehicle for illustrating to new deconverts that the evidence abounds that the bible is utter myth. And there are so many examples of their replicated (and physically impossible) parallels, like virgin birthing. To…"
"Kevin, you have some key wisdom here!
I've been an atheist for ever. I'm 46. But I've had to politely nod when friends throughout life go on about the mystery of their god. But because of the last few years…"
"I do appreciate your story, Kara. I've been an atheist for as long as I was mature enough to comprehend the stories in the bible. I pity the victims of indoctrination. Without it, the only thing wholly "self-evident"…"
Atheist since I was old enough to care, and understand what the bible stories actually propose. What a load of crap. Turned to science for answers at a young age. Aaaahhh, now I can really get to the bottom of what's going on in this Universe. Having earned a degree in physics, I feel utterly privileged to have sought science for answers, and fortunate to have been born to free thinking parents. As an atheist I have it much easier than many here who have to hide their views from their closest family members. Still, I wish I had more enriching friendships. It simply can't happen with religious people because the moment the conversation dwells on ultimately important questions, their god comes out. It's a frustrating barrier. It's one that keeps us from talking about questions that remain unanswered, that religious people pass off to god and close their mind.
Why are you here?
I would like to connect with YOU, if you are a rational person free from the sickness of religion. I also want to promote the dismantling the very concept of religion, which poses answers to questions it simply does not have. If it did, it would then be called science.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one

What the!! Don't believe in Unicorns - they are in the bible - how can you not believe?????
There are other Unicorn icons on this site - and I wanted to form a new church called The Sacred Heart of the Perpetual Passion, with my fellow Unicorns. We would have performed many miracles, and charged xians heaps of money for said miracles. Alas, one of the Unicorns said he went berserk in public, so we squashed the idea. So, if you come up with another idea, just let me know.
Are you new to the site? It is really interesting, with many really clever people on it, it is inspiring and comforting. Heather Spoonheim, Jimmyboy, Stephen Walski, Arcus from Czech Republic, ex-muslims, people from all over the world. I tend just to froth at the mouth when a xian tries us out.
They just go circular reference, and quote the bible ad nauseam. The mistake xians make, is the majority of people on this site know the bible. Know your enemy. We are growing in numbers all the time - another thousand has joined in the short time I have been here. Hallelujah for the Internet - we can keep tabs on, and get information on just about anything - and keep in touch with people of like mind from all around the world. It's a miracle. Have fun and join in.
