Re: judgement day the end of atheism
Mabjustice seems a bit hostile....I am new but I dont think he is making a good start on this site..
Thanks

Oh, don't mind him. That's just Mabus - he's a well known mentally-disturbed individual who gets his jollies by posting a bunch of incoherent violent threats against atheists at various places on the web. He makes a new screenname here every few days or weeks and posts his nonsense.

The mods will take care of it soon enough.

Reopen "Hi" thread
Can we please reopen the "Hi" thread? It's in the coffee house, and I can't imagine a much more vague topic than "Hi," and the thread has now been closed despite some very interesting conversation. Isn't the coffee house supposed to have a very low level of moderation? Why was this closed in the first place?

“The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it.”
- Francis Bacon

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers

“A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity.” – Albert Camus

Re: This site used to be...
Much as I do enjoy the political and ethical debates from time to time...it would be nice to return to a focus on Creationism vs Evolution or even just science vs religion in general.

variously tainted data, one can obtain a valuable result; but in fact, the
outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." Barash, David 1995.
