CRITICAL THINKING, SCEPTICISM & ATHEISM

SECULAR SANCTUARY

This Group is specifically for those who prefer to apply Critical Thinking rather than follow blind faith, those that are natural Sceptics, and true Atheists.

Members must be approved.

FOR ALL SERIOUS THINKERS

CRITICAL THINKING:

The mental process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to reach an answer or conclusion. 

SCEPTICAL:

Inclined to question the truth or soundness of accepted ideas, not easily convinced.

ATHEISM:

The disbelief in the existence of god or gods. From the Greek, atheos - a 'without', theos 'god'.

This Group is to all intents solely for those that fall into the above three definition areas. It is not a place for Non-Atheists to debate with Atheists, rather it is a secular meeting place and for those of a like-mindedness to discuss freely their thoughts and ideas pertaining to these things in an atmosphere of acceptance, camaraderie, fellowship, and mutual respect. It is to protect these ideals that membership in this group is either by invitation or by approval.

Thank-You.

The Ultimate Theatre of the Absurd has always been Religion . Sexuality is  a prime target for this absurdity . And now for your musical entertainment...

Comment by Alannah on Tuesday

*facepalms at the Satanic sexual organs* Doesn't this dickhead actually remember that its his god who supposedly created man and woman and the biology inherent within them? *sighs* Get me off this planet now, please, fucking beam up somebody, anybody!!!!!!

To the person on that post spouting his fecal stupidity, here you go Sir, well done you won!!!

Comment by Pagan Trillanie on Tuesday

*chuckles* Don't ya just love the part "even you atheists". LOL Nope, sorry it's your fantasy island. Not ours. ;-) Don't drag us into this. 

Comment by THE LIAR on Monday

@ Pagan re Luciferian reproductive organs :

         Of course it makes PERFECT SENSE to the folks who put a penis on their God in the first place .  Yes, women are all a pack of SHE DEVILS and their privates are proof of it . I had no idea that Theology and Gynocology were so closely related !!! LOL Thanks for sharing this piece of absurdity.

Comment by Pagan Trillanie on Monday

Here's one person's view of women. Get ready for some laughter. :-)

Alannah, That is a favorite image btw to use with trolling Christians. Although they are becoming less frequent on my boards possibly because of my change in tactics. But you know every once in a while one cannot resist and they never come prepared. Lol

"God is the ultimate fair being, he is perfect" - fucking nonsense! What type of fairness is it when this god provides no demonstrable evidence for his existence, then because of our natural doubt which cannot force ourselves into believing in something that theres no evidence for, will condemn us to an everlasting punishment?

Oh wait *chuckles, facepalm* silly Alannah! I forgot, thats where this dirty bag of shite comes in: faith.

Christian Debater Gets Outwitted by an Eighth Grade Atheist

Published on Oct 8, 2014

This is an excerpt from a Christian/atheist debate in Sept. 2014. An 8th grade atheist asks the Christian presenter why God bothers to do anything if he already knows what will happen? And what about all the people who lived and died and never heard of Jesus (such as those in North Korea)?
