Attention South Florida Atheists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, and Humanists
Our current members and I of the Broward Atheists Meetup (www.browardatheists.com and in www.meetup.com) welcome all interested in atheism, theism, freethought, agnosticism, humanism, transhumanism, state and church seperation (otherwise known as seperation of sturch), and related topics to our Tuesday meetings after 6:30pm. The www.browardatheists.com website has details on our venue, it is currently a pub, but will change when more members are acquired. We're already bulging at the seams with an average attendance of about twelve. No matter your age, beliefs, or preferences, we'd like to hear your opinion. Even the sternest Christians may come and present their thoughts, because if you really believe we're going to hell, we sure don't want to be wrong about the subject, haha, but most members are pretty confident about their atheism and agnosticism. I mention the invitation only to be open-minded. Anyways, we usually discuss religion, politics, philosophy, etc. but do not feel obligated to have to order anything despite it being a pub. There is no membership fee either, it is an informal event so far seeing how we have too few to be more organized, but we'd like to be! And we'd like to have enough people to start some activism and be as productive as possible.
Aside from the weekly Tuesday meetings, there are fun events such as campfires and beach barbeques scheduled. We sure would like to cooperate with other groups and more members to voice the rights and freedoms we and others deserve regardless of our beliefs and with your ideas and help, this can be made possible. The current goal is to eliminate the negative stigma attached to our labels by altruism and stoicism such as scholarships and good deeds. E-mail me with any questions or better yet, any one else you can get in contact with from the website to get a clearer understanding of who and what we are. We turn no one down and encourage debate, skepticism, and reason. The meetings are definitely worthwhile and interesting or else I wouldn't waste the little free time I have as a college student to invite any one else to come join the experience. If you are in the area and find the time inconvenient with your busy schedule, no hard feelings will be had, but at least sign the guestbook so we can know you support us and wish you could come. :-)
A New Forum for Discussion and Debate
I have created a new community called heated_debate
It is an open topic community based on free speech and anti-censorship. Members of this community will not be banned for their ideas or opinions. You can discuss any topic as you see fit.
I am an atheist and am trying to find as many fellow atheists as I can to come participate in the discussions. Hopefully we can get a lot of topics associated with atheism and it's views up and running.
I know the community is not huge yet, but I just started and am working on it.
Anyway, please consider joining heated_debate

I'll start the ball rolling. Christians have no proof that the crap in their religion happened except a book written two thousand years ago by a bunch of crackpots influenced by a preaching Jew hopped up on magic mushrooms. I have the feeling lots of Christians are born lobotomized due to their belief of the bible. How can a person tell how history went if there was no written language or record? How would a writer know the EXACT words coming out of a person thousands of years before them if they were the only two to exist (I am of course referring to the extremely ludicrous story of Adam and Eve)? Snakes can't talk people! I'm too angry to continue so I'll leave you with something that a famous philosopher called Friedrich Nietzsche said.
"Every word that comes from the lips of an 'early christian' is a lie, and his every act is instinctively dishonest-all his values, all his aims are noxious, but whoever he hates, whatever he hates, has real value....The christian, and especially the christian priest, is thus a criterion of values"
Accept the words or choke on them. Current Mood: amused
Welcome to the Atheist-Christian debate community! This is a place to express your views and debate issues concerning religion in a friendly, open forum.
The first debate question:
Should the words "Under God" be included in the Pledge of Allegiance?
