This community is for discussing all that is wrong with religion and ways to work towards a world free of the religion's poison. Post news articles, logical discussions, rebuttal of religious dogma or anything else you may believe will help (in however small a way) bring about the downfall of religion as we know it. Obviously internet discussion is only the beginning, and other strategies for affecting change in the broader community are most welcome, but until then we must expand our knowledge and our minds to ensure the world becomes, and/or stays truly secular.

Off topic posts to a certain extent are fine, discussions of morality, science etc are all acceptable, but try to not to stray too far from the path. Only through focus and determination will we succeed, for there are powerful religious forces at work, trying desperately to break down what so many have struggled to achieve in the name of secular freedom.

FAITH: Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel.
CHRISTIAN: One who believes that the New Testament is a divinely inspired book admirably suited to the spiritual needs of his neighbor. One who follows the teachings of Christ in so far as they are not inconsistent with a life of sin.
PRAY: To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.
DELUSION: The father of a most respectable family, comprising Enthusiasm, Affection, Self-denial, Faith, Hope, Charity and many other goodly sons and daughters.
