Atheism community posting rules

1. Allow Comments
To maintain a discussion we require all posts have comments enabled and remain so. This allows moderators to keep in communication.

2. Image posts
Image posts must follow the rules described in the image post policy. See   #GpacMeme .

https://plus.google.com/118406556402551736506/posts/NRVcWE5vA4C

3. Relevance
Every post must be related to atheism or religion and it must be immediately clear why a post is relevant to the community. If a video is linked from a post, the post must have a clear description of the contents of the video.

4. NSFW
Nudity and violence or disturbing images must not be directly visible from the stream. Links to such content in either posts or comments must have a warning of what is being linked to.

5. English
Posts have to be in English. If non-English content is linked from the post, the post must have a good summary or description of the non-English linked content.

6. Proselytizing
Theists are welcome to join and to ask questions but proselytizing is not allowed.

7. Avoid cross posting
If your post appears to be of dubious quality and the exact same post is posted to multiple communities, it may be considered spam and could be removed.

8. Respect
The other members are more important than you, simply because there are more of them. If your presence makes this place a worse experience for everybody else, then you are no longer welcome. If a little more effort on your part makes your post a better experience for everybody else, then you are expected to make that effort. If you don't care about the quality of your post, we don't care about it either.

HINDU SWAMIS EXPOSED! - PART-1
 
HINDU SWAMIS EXPOSED! - PART-1

A documented overview of the history and extent of the alleged sexual abuses by Sathya Sai Baba and the questions they raise.

A long history of reports through decades, which covers the cover-up of allegations about Sathya Sai Baba's sexual behaviour. 'The Findings' by David Bailey - once the top favourite foreign devotee - released the floodgates for testimonies

Deceptions and failed prophesies revealed and strong circumstantial and corroborative evidence. Sai Baba knew he would some day be caught out, saying, "A great scandal is coming".

Smoke Not Without Fire - Claims and Evidence of Serious Molestations.

* Sai Baba's 'oiling' of genitals of young males an 'acceptable practice'?
* Young men and their relatives testify to major sexual abuse by Sai Baba
* Sex with "the Avatar" proclaimed as "Good Chances"

More smoke and fuel to the fire:

* Many young boys from abroad given too much attention and soon left Sai Baba?
* Sai Baba's entrapped student boys and young men serially abused?
The Jigsaw of Mounting Testimony & Circumstantial Evidence Takes Shape
More Documented claims of sexual molestation 
* Ram Das Awle's alleged 'channeled' explanation to justify perverse sex by Sai Baba
* Sai Baba a threat to many of his students
* Claims that Sai Baba is a hermaphrodite

Sathya Sai Baba's Claims of Purity and Celibacy that Defy all Accounts:

* Defending the indefensible - rationalizing pedophile activities
* Sathya Sai Baba never celibate - fresh evidence
* The self-professed 'teacher of mankind' who totally avoids the subject of sexuality?

I for one want to know how the Kangaroos made it to Australia without any fossil evidence of their journey. I mean if they were on the ark they had to walk somehow, right?

My first thought on this:

Perhaps out of the Roman Catholic Church pedophile affairs, may come something good afterall.

Who knows?! Perhaps this shift is caused because the people in Ireland slowly start to realize that the RC church has been pissing in their backyard one time to many this time,.... and it is now time to piss back at them.
With a vote on Friday, the country could become the first to legalize gay nuptials by popular vote.

Hey everyone. Just saw this and thought I'd share it with my fellow fact freak friends. So, what do you guys think about this?
 
WHY IS ATHEISM MORE POPULAR THAN EVER?: With Islam and Christianity growing in numbers, Atheism has joined the ranks with over 22 percent of Americans as believers. So why is Atheism more popular now? Find out: http://dne.ws/1ElYM2m

What is it with these people that they do not understand the difference between reality and fake? That one lady litterrally said that Harry Potter is a good example of Kindoki (witchcraft).

It is similar to christians saying they do not let their children play World of Warcraft, because it has got witchcraft and demonic possession in it.

This is no longer a case of level of education.
It is pure ignorance and religious stupidity, IMHO.

How will we ever cut this cancer from our society?

Mmm idiots. Here in Europe you could get a bloodmoon when Sahara sands are driven up high up into the atmosphere and the sandgrains difuse the light towards the red spectrum.

But... I guess this guy never watches the weather channel or had a proper education on the sciences.

About this community

Join us to discuss topics related to atheism and religion from a secular perspective. Our community is meant to offer support to community members, share educational resources, and to discuss issues pertaining to the impact of belief and religion on society. Our subject is controversial and our members are many. In order to keep our community running as smoothly as possible our team of volunteer moderators have developed a set of rules that aim to: - Encourage civil and polite discourse, - Reduce clutter and promote active discussion, and - Promote accessibility for all, including those with visual, aural or other impairments. Please review the rules (in the link below) before posting. Also note that this is a public community and the posts or comments you make can be viewed by anyone. ATHEISM The Oxford English dictionary defines atheism as: “Disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods,” but it is not up to us to define the beliefs of others. Many atheists have their own definition based on their particular thoughts. Discussions related to these differences can be thought-provoking -- if we keep in mind that it is not helpful to argue over which one is right or wrong. Read “What is Atheism” in the link below to learn more.

Media doing what it does best. Trivialising and causing needless controversy.
 
If you're talking to a physicist about the #Higgs boson, whatever you do, do not call it by its media-hyped nickname the "God Particle."

+Lee Douglas as Daniel said, a lot of religious people took exception to the name the media gave it.
You can see that in America the republicans are trying to shred scientific research. Things like this really don't help

+Gustuv Wynd if not getting involved was all these organisations did they would be far less culpable then they are now, having spent decades (at least) covering up crimes and enabling these child rapists to continue doing it.

Yet this man will not sign over all his bank accounts to my name.

I had a co-worker that bought into the Rapture scare a couple years ago. She divorced her husband over it...quit her job...walked away from everything to go be with the other believers of that con man.

...today she is back in town...she used to be a very good Business Analyst doing quality assurance on IT documentation and processes. Now she is working at Home Depot as a cashier. I've been temped to ask her if she still does the whole religious thing, but I haven't been able to do anything but say hello. Just can't bring myself to do it.

In Genesis Chapter 39 Joseph does the right thing and gets thrown in prison.  God is with Joseph...but not until Joseph is thrown in prison.  How convenient.

https://thepoisedatheist.wordpress.com/2015/05/22/genesis-chapter-39-joseph-and-potiphars-wife/
I really hope this chapter of Genesis has more morality than the last chapter.  The last chapter was filled with misogyny, hypocrisy, and anti-science.    In Chapter 39 we learn about Potiphar and ...

What is it about consent that these people find so difficult to understand?

This is why they think all atheists must be rapists, because if they thought they could, they would.

Beaten by an 8th grader.


I don't know if he evades the questions in purpose, or if he really fails to grasp and address them; I can't believe he is that slow.

He doesn't sounds like he believes himself for fuck sake! "Somehow god is fair". I love that kid! He should have said to Ben, you sound brainwashed and you're just making this up as you go. UGH!
