Recent scientific findings date their arrival earlier than ever thought, sparking hot debate among archaeologists.
The concept of an afterlife is simply based on ego.
“I am too unique and important to simply cease to exist.”
Science & religion can only coexist via compartmentalization. In that sense, and that sense only, are they non-overlapping magisteria. They are not separate but equal domains of human or universal truth.
Religion, or more accurately “faith”, has and always will lose to science and the scientific method.

That is a good point. Look at all the genocide, slavery, incest, rape, violence, hate, immorality, etc in the bible that is advocated and ever preached as law by their god, and then we’re threatened with their hell for not believing, lol.
I don’t think it’s a matter of belief. It’s a matter of whether or not this god is worthy of my worship. If this god existed, I wouldn’t not believe in him because he advocated horrible things. I wouldn’t believe in him because there would be no substantial evidence for his existence. If he existed and there was substantial proof, I would have no choice but to believe. I wouldn’t, however, be required to worship him. That’s the difference.
Agreed. I don’t believe because it’s an unsupported premise with no corroborating evidence. None.
If the Abrahamic god were proven to exist I would first admit I was wrong.
I would then try and find a way to kill the monster.
And I think that tells you something about ChristianMingle, doesn’t it?
This confuses me. How can you be an agnostic atheist? Surely that’s a contradiction.
It’s not a contradiction. Many people have a wrong impression of what agnostic is. I have found a very nice explanation, have a read and stop being confused, and instead - start being awesome:
I thought it was common knowledge already to know what “agnostic atheism” is?? I mean, almost every atheist I know identifies as agnostic atheist. :p
I don’t identify as agnostic, anyway that link is broken
Due to some G+ turmoil the link is now:
It’s really sad how many people just don’t understand the meaning of the terminology.
It’s not that complicated.
