Friends, I know some of you have been soldiers and have fought for what at that time you thought was right and I can't take fault with you. Many of you have killed or seen their friends killed in battle lines and I don't have words enough to express my condolences. That said, I think all war is born of superstition. I have not looked at the history of all the wars that have been fought, but I think we can agree that the greatest percentage have been to defend a particular creed.

"I ought to call myself an agnostic; but, for all practical purposes, I am an atheist." - Bertrand Russell

by : Thomas Serres
[On 17 October 1961, tens of thousands of Algerian protesters peacefully demonstrated against violations against their civil liberties in Paris. In the midst of the war of Independence (1954 – 1962), the FLN (Front de libération nationale) was engaged in a violent struggle against France that relied on the mobilization within the Metropole as well as combat in Algeria. As a result of FLN…Continue
I dedicate this blog post to all animal lovers, to those of us perpetually fascinated by the animal kingdom, especially other fellow vertebrates, and even more specially mammals and birds. This blog is a critter edition: we have necking giraffes, killer cats, co-evolving dogs, blind mole rats showcasing evolution in action, pigeon DNA, smart dolphins, and more! Sorry…Continue
Since quite a few people have their own blogs in addition to graciously hanging out online with us here at Atheist Universe, I want to wholeheartedly and vehemently recommend THE BEST blog post on moderation comments. It is especially valid for science blogs, but not only for science blogs. The blog post is "…Continue
