|allisburning||02:36 pm - They want to execute or enslave you.|
I keep running across people who aren't familiar with this stuff yet.
There are people in the USA who want to execute or enslave those who disagree with their religious views.
They have been gaining increasing political power for the last few decades.
It is quite possible that they may gain control of the government.
Unfortunately, this is not paranoia or conspiracy theories. This is straight factual reporting, much of it "in their own words".
Please take a look at these articles.
"Christian Reconstructionism, Dominion Theology and Theonomy"
"America the Theocracy"
"The Despoiling of America"
If anybody's interested, I can give you more links.
Frankly, I don't particularly care if anybody comments here or not.
But everyone who reads this should know what's going on, what they think about it, and what they might want to do about it.

The Fall of Atheism
by Harun Yahya. (A Turning Point in History)
"We are living at an important time. Atheism, which people have tried for hundreds of years to portray as “the way of reason and science,” is proving to be mere irrationality and ignorance. Materialist philosophy that sought to use science for its own ends has been in turn defeated by science. A world rescuing itself from atheism will turn to God and religion. And this process has begun long ago."
Article is actually quite good - a brief survey of history and philosophy of atheism.

|myautomaticstop||07:29 pm - i know i sound like an idiot but...|
i knoe i probably sound like a stupid idiot or something buh i recently started questioning the existence of God. im officially a sikh, so i dont believe in the Christian views of 'creation' and stuff. i think that god was just an idea conjured up by the creative minds of people to help them get through stuff and to explain the unknown. but...then again...being taught my whole life that there was a god and stuff, the idea of there not being one seems kinda hard to swallow. there are so many things in life that can be seen as 'miracles' that the idea of God seems so believable...but then again, if there was a god how can he let all the stupid shytty stuff happening in the world go on? and then there's the argument that there must be a god since there seems to be the belief of a 'powerful and mysterious force' spread all around the world, even in the remotest of parts. before i begin labelling myself as atheist or agnostic and stuff i just want to get the views of others on this.

|masktchi||08:07 pm - Attention South Florida Atheists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, and Humanists|
Our current members and I of the Broward Atheists Meetup (www.browardatheists.com and in www.meetup.com) welcome all interested in atheism, theism, freethought, agnosticism, humanism, transhumanism, state and church seperation (otherwise known as seperation of sturch), and related topics to our Tuesday meetings after 6:30pm. The www.browardatheists.com website has details on our venue, it is currently a pub, but will change when more members are acquired. We're already bulging at the seams with an average attendance of about twelve. No matter your age, beliefs, or preferences, we'd like to hear your opinion. Even the sternest Christians may come and present their thoughts, because if you really believe we're going to hell, we sure don't want to be wrong about the subject, haha, but most members are pretty confident about their atheism and agnosticism. I mention the invitation only to be open-minded. Anyways, we usually discuss religion, politics, philosophy, etc. but do not feel obligated to have to order anything despite it being a pub. There is no membership fee either, it is an informal event so far seeing how we have too few to be more organized, but we'd like to be! And we'd like to have enough people to start some activism and be as productive as possible.
Aside from the weekly Tuesday meetings, there are fun events such as campfires and beach barbeques scheduled. We sure would like to cooperate with other groups and more members to voice the rights and freedoms we and others deserve regardless of our beliefs and with your ideas and help, this can be made possible. The current goal is to eliminate the negative stigma attached to our labels by altruism and stoicism such as scholarships and good deeds. E-mail me with any questions or better yet, any one else you can get in contact with from the website to get a clearer understanding of who and what we are. We turn no one down and encourage debate, skepticism, and reason. The meetings are definitely worthwhile and interesting or else I wouldn't waste the little free time I have as a college student to invite any one else to come join the experience. If you are in the area and find the time inconvenient with your busy schedule, no hard feelings will be had, but at least sign the guestbook so we can know you support us and wish you could come. :-)

This may sound really retarded but...
... how about a little color in the layout, mod?
This place is Dullsville. It's like a layout a 10 year old girl would have. May I suggest earth tones?
And since I didn't really take time to actually read the rules and I'm too lazy to do it now... can atheists ask religious people questions?
Or is that some other community?

|embarr_ass_ed||07:35 pm - Public prayer|
What is your opinion on public prayer (schools, sport games, etc)? What about so called "neutral moments of silence"? Whether you are a theist or a-, does this go against your beliefs? Is it constitutional?

|anatta_anicca||04:26 pm - Why Atheism?|
Isn't being an atheist accepting the theist frame of reference?
Why do you consider "God exists" a meaningful statment such that you can define yourself by its' negation?

Welcome to the Ask An Atheist community. All the "rules" are listed under user info.
