Does Atheistic Fanaticism Really Exist?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mike Cole Aug 28, 2014. 82 Replies

It has been suggested in discussions, both here and elsewhere, that there are "atheist fanatics" and that they are "just the same" as religious fanatics.  Personally, I find this assertion ludicrous…Continue

Resolved: Pride is the primary motivation behind religion.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hope Jan 27, 2011. 3 Replies

I have long thought that pride and the related competition for social status did more to explain religion than fear.  Fear is the hook they use to reel the fish in, but it is pride that motivates the…Continue

Thanks!

At times I'm more than ready to run as far as I can from the belt but then there's a lot more that I love here. Hopefully I'll end up in a more accepting place than where I grew up.

Thanks Mo! Its one of those weird English surnames which come from a job in medieval times - one peasant on a large estate belonging to a nobleman would take responsibility for overseeing the work of the others and in return when the other tenants paid their rent in produce or money he would symbolically present the Lord or whatever with a rose from his garden in lieu of rent. He would be known by the surname Pluckrose so everyone knew he was a sort of supervisor. Has unfortunate rhyming possibilities when my husband was at school tho!

Thanks for your input.

Better off with weed I'm not.. I have made the decision to stop, my life was consumed it.. The love affair is over. Time for a new hobby...

It's time to grow up and smell the roses...and the dog shit if it needs picking up...

Hi, Mo. Thanks for adding me as a friend, nice to meet you.

Also, thanks for your kind comment about my status message. Yes, it's my original thought, it was originally a tweet. You can read the original version here.
