Is the typical atheist as certain/carefree in giving her answer as the orthodox theist?

A Rabbit Trail That Leads to Nowhere

Over the past 4 years I have gone through a lot. I've lost everything and rebuilt from nothing and attempted to reclaim both my life and my sanity.



I parted ways with my old way of life and embraced a new one. Completely. I lived in a completely new way foreign to anything I had everything experienced before. Every decision I made was based on my new found philosophy of life. Decisions were made based on 'facts' and 'logic.' Never emotions or feelings. I spent hours upon hours trying… Continue

Religious Bigots & American Election

Most of the Pakistani people still think that 9/11 was done by America & Osama Bin Ladan was not in AbbotAbad etc. If Osama was not in AbbotAbad then why Pakistani corrupt Army Generals did not raise their voice against Americans action on international level. In fact they did not have the moral courage.

Most of the Pakistani's abuse their liberal & secular voices. When Narendra Modi was elected in India they abused as Donald Trump won they did the…

So for anybody who is a proponent of memes are you making a metaphor or do you mean that there is some observable and measurable phenomenon. Is there a change at the molecular level once a person has…
