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.

Atheists are the most despised minority in the United States. Americans are more prejudiced and bigoted against atheists than any other group. However, not every atheist has directly and personally experienced such bigotry. Have you? Has anyone…Continue

In an interesting turn of events. This article popped up today.

Britain Condemns Biblical Creation, Compares It to Radical Islam

In an attempt to check religious extremism in public schools, British Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said schools that teach Biblical Creationism would be refused government funding. In a statement delivered in Parliament, Morgan condemned the preaching of religious views within British public schools.

@mark Kinda like this. Never mind debating. You just can't have a normal conversation with them.

@ Pagan,

First time I saw Seth Andrews, I like this guy and how he represents Atheism. Debating with a Christian is about as fruitful as debating anyone else laboring under a delusion.

Pastor Josh Feuerstein recently put up a $100,000 challenge to anyone who could prove that God doesn't exist. Seth Andrews, host of www.thethinkingatheist.com, responds.
