I don't want to speak down on people's beliefs, but to me personally - religion appears to be a very advance emotional manipulation 'sleight of mind ' trick.

I took a picture of this frog today. Hard to spot, huh?  Adaptive coloration is so cool.

New research in the journal Animal Cognition demonstrates that when a rat is given the choice between rescuing a fellow rat from water and eating a favorite snack, rats will choose the former 50% - 80% of the time. The rat won't make this choice for another rat in a dry pool, showing they aren't just choosing companionship, and a rat is more likely to help if it has been stuck in water before.

Looks like a well-controlled demonstration of empathy in rats.

+Micah Crawford

Other animals such as birds display superstitious behavior. The concept of a "supreme being" was also not found in every tribe or society. Also, simply because you do not know, it does not conclude that it is or is not existing, meaning, simply because you do not know if other animals have this concept, it does not mean it isn't so. You also ignored the majority of challenges posed to you. And what happened to women? Is humanity a male-dominated species?

I think realistically and analytically. I have always doubted the existence of a god even when I was baptized and brought to Church by my currently dead parents. So, if what you're saying is that humans possess the concept of a god and morality because god exists and did so, why did I always doubt the existence of a god and have always been skeptical of certain morals (such as women must be submissive to men, as stated in the Bibles)?

And if a god truly had the power to do that, why not make its creations the way it wants them to be, preventing them from punishment for being the way it created them? 

I would like to clarify that I am typing rhetorically. I have no belief in a god and never truly did.

+Ashley Church Then you never understood evolution (I'll chalk that up to the poor school system. They almost never teach it right). The fact is that every piece of evidence we have points directly at evolution, and there is not a shred of evidence for any other explanation.

By all means, explain the logical process that led you away from evolution.

Story
Tagline
@Monicks
Introduction
I am Monica (Salcedo) McGee, known for being a fiercely outspoken atheist, on  Monicks.net, on Twitter (@Monicks), and here on Google Plus. I am a humanist, a freethinker, a rationalist, and an egalitarian. I am married to Joshua McGee, (@McGeekiest). I also occasionally write over at gawd.me

I am an atheist guided by reason, instructed by science, motivated by kindness - and I'm also kinda nice. 

I am a secular humanist. I rely on reason to understand the world, and compassion guides my effort to apply my knowledge ethically. 

I behave decently to everyone without any expectation of rewards or punishment after I'm dead.

If I added you, it probably means I find something you do or said interesting, or most likely I think we have similar interests. If I'm right, and you feel so inclined, you can add me yourself, if not, just feel flattered and carry on.
