Out of the Blue

Frans continues to work hard on behind-the-scenes stuff here, but some of it bubbled to the surface yesterday, as some new features on the forums, where there's an easier quoting option, as well as a more noticeable reference to the forum rules.

Also, as noted on Darwin Online, today is the 150th anniversary of the release of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Thanks to Frans for that as well.

It takes faith to believe in God, Jesus, evolution(macro), and even nothing(atheist). This world and its people coming from nothing? To many precise calculations to come from a random event. A few degrees closer to the sun and earth would be inhabitable. A few
degrees the other way and it would be to cold for life.

Hi and welcome to the randomness of the universe. Throw 6 dice and it may be unlikely that you get six ones or six sixes, but regardless of how the dice land you get a result - in this case life or no life. And what about several extinction level events over the last several billion years? Is that god just messing around?

It takes intelligence and more importantly, courage and strength, to step out of the dark shadow of the ignorance of religion and faith and into the light of science and reason, and realize that there most likely is no god(s). The good news is that means you can get on with your life without worrying about some supernatural father figure waiting to punish you horribly for not worshiping him like some mindless slave. Ending religion and slavish devotion to the supernatural is the only way this species is going to survive and move forward.
