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.

A C Grayling - http://www.acgrayling.com/

"People should be left to believe what they like, so long as they harm no one else. Apart from normal expectations of politeness, it is not however clear why people should require their personal beliefs to be treated with special sensitivity by others, to the point that if others fail to tip-toe respectfully around them they will start throwing bombs.”

"“Eagleton has spent his life inside two mental boxes, Catholicism and Marxism, of both of which he is a severe internal critic—that is, he frequently kicks and scratches at the inside of the boxes, but does not leave them. Neither are ideologies that loosen their grip easily, and people who need the security of adherence to a big dominating ideology, however much they kick and scratch but without daring to leave go, hold on to it every bit as tightly as it holds onto them. The result is of course strangulation, but alas not mutual strangulation: the ideology always wins.”

Great video marK! And I agree I mean I dont know what they're complaining about myself, I mean according to this chap Christians get it far too easy these days, and maybe did so back then ;-)

Comment by THE LIAR on Friday

I was under the impression that persecution was a badge of honor to Christians, a " cross " to be borne with patience and even love for your persecutors. Where is these whiny assholes faith ? If they are going to believe what they believe as " revealed " in the Bible then they can expect the worst from this world .

Attached is a ditty about martyrdom.  marK

*chuckles* The Invention of Lying. :-) I actually haven't seen that one before. I can't help but laugh about the whole pizza box thing though. I think the point is emerging.
