They know the rules of debate, the Laws of Thermodynamics, and can explain evolution in fifty words or less. More concerned with how things ARE than how they should be, these are the people wh...

Because we are the ones who decide what gets bred,and how, it is interference, and "artificial". Selective breeding might not be" i...

The Law of attraction is the latest new age bullshit, along the lines of, if you wish for something hard enough, you send out positive energy, which pulls the desired thing to you, and conversely ofc course, if you fail or suffer ill consequences, it is because you wanted it to happen, or just were ...

Saddam by his direct actions ensured the obliteration of @2 million people from this planet. He was the leader of a sadistic regime in which people lived in terror. Given that we only have 1 life, the taking of his for his vile actions is totally appropriate. It seems much more humane to me, than lo...

My initial response was thats that it is irrelevant to atheists/unbelievers, but before i vote, i am going to think on it. Why? Well it occurred to me that if suddenly a lot of priests started getting these letters asking to be excommunicated, it could be the 1st step in making Aetheist more active ...
