  • Atheist Quotes

    I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil--you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality, peace and joy. Trust yourself.
    Dan Barker

    He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.
    William Drummond

    The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
    Richard Dawkins

Evolution: How We Know it Happened And Why It Matters

I loved the book by Dr. Prothero Evolution: What The Fossils Say And Why It Matters but now I found a video of his on evolution over on youtube produced by the Skeptic Society. Not only is this his book a necessary read for all creationists (and most people in general) but this video is in the same category. For those of you unfamiliar with Dr. Prothero:

Dr. Prothero teaches Physical and Historical Geology, Sedimentary Geology, and Paleontology. His specialties are mammalian paleontology and magnetic stratigraphy of the Cenozoic. His current research focuses on the dating of the climatic changes that occurred between 30 and 40 million years ago, using the technique of magnetic stratigraphy. He is the author of Evolution: What the Fossils Say &; Why it Matters, Evolution of the Earth, Bringing Fossils to Life, After the Dinosaurs, Horns, Tusks, and Flippers: The Evolution of Hoofed Mammals, and the textbook Sedimentary Geology.

  1. You seem a really interesting and at the same time confused person. When I first noticed your blog, I remembered, how during the Soviet Union, kids in school at the science lessons were told to go outside look straight in the sky, and shout ‘There is no God’.
    Why are you gihting so much against God?
    btw, evolution is a religion, because you believe in evolution just as you believe in the existence of God.

  2. Paul, there is no confusion. I am neither against god nor is evolution a religion.

  3. Noreligion,

    Your reply proves his point, you are confused about the definition of religion.
