Missa Charles Darwin: A Secular Mass by Gregory Brown

Just for shits and giggles, I decided to type "Charles Darwin" into the Spotify search bar, and I came up with this intriguing piece: Gregory Brown's Missa Charles Darwin.

And no, this is not a joke;…

Out Of The Randomness

One argument that I tackled in an earlier post was the fine tuning argument. I thought about it for a while, and I thought of one of my interests: Astronomy. I realized that there are thousands of galaxies and millions of stars and planets out there. So are we really "fine tuned"? Why us and not any one of the other millions of planets? Why haven't we found life on other planets? For those of you who do not know much about cosmology or astronomy there is a certain Goldilocks zone that a…

What Darwin Never Knew

Last night on PBS NOVA aired a new showed entitled "What Darwin Never Knew." It is 2 hours of fascinating insight on recent scientific developments into the "how to's" of evolutionary biology. Explanations on homo sapien's brain expansion, DNA switches, analysis of the human genome, and genetic mutation are clearly and graphically presented. I really can't recommend this particular programming enough. The god equation loses great "face" in the process.

My New Tattoo

Over the past few months, I've had that urge to get another tattoo. After some searching, I decided that I wanted something featuring Darwin's evolutionary tree. I gave my artist a picture of Darwin's 'tree' and told him to get creative. I'm so ecstatic about how it turned out and it's my new favorite piece! I absolutely love it! :) Ink by Moto @ Amber Island Tattoo in Easley, SC

 

And now..for your viewing pleasure...

New atheist event needs your help

The Ancestor's Trail http://www.ancestorstrail.net/ (see also the Think Atheist events page) was inspired by Richard Dawkins’ book the 'Ancestor's Tale' and combines atheism, biodiversity, walking and evolution. Effectively it is a secular pilgrimage celebrating our shared ancestry with all life. This is the second Trail but the event remains at a vulnerable stage. Currently the event is 'booking'…

Invite to a secular pilgrimage

The Ancestor's Trail - Sunday the 29th May 2011.

Religious folks certainly know how to throw a party; festivals, ceremonies, feasts, sacrament, Hajj, Vesak, Bar Mitzvah and the list goes on....

 

But what if your beliefs are rather more down to earth? In 2010 a small group of Humanists ran our very first 'biological pilgrimage' on the Quantock hills in Somerset UK ~ a secular celebration of our shared origins, based on Richard…

Abiogenesis verified in lab (origins of life)

Abiogenesis is the explanation (theory) of how chemical compounds could form Ribonucleotides which then become life. Creationists assume that you are talking about Evolution, but this is the step before Evolution. To the point, it has now been replicated in the laboratory.



According to Sutherland, these laboratory conditions resembled those of the life-originating “warm

little pond” hypothesized by Charles Darwin if the pond “evaporated, got heated, and then it rained… Continue
