I was just tipped off by a friend of mine that Mars will be making it's closest orbital pass by earth this August. Attached is a PowerPoint document describing the event. Should be pretty cool to see!

A pilot flying his plane over the South Pacific sees an uncharted island in the distance and circles downward to take a closer look. As the plane descends, the pilot spots large rocks on the island's shore arranged to spell out SOS. Beyond the reach of waves, he notices a grass hut. Without hesitation, the pilot radios for… Read More

Something that I don't think occurs to most religious people, and in fact most people in general, is how much control our unconscious minds have over us. How automatically it does things for and to us that we either take for granted or are simply unaware of. Good personal introspection and study of the way the mind works is something I think is critically important if one wishes to understand not necessarily who they are, but what they are, and also why themselves and those around them behave… Read More

There are some things we cannot know or understand unless we believe in them first.
Our capacity to believe separates us from organisms that only respond to the world around them. Birds know
when to fly south through adaption. Humans modify their environment have the faculties of belief and hope. We believe things to be true and if we perceive this belief to produce superior results we keep it. If we keep beliefs that, in reality don't help get us to where we need to be we… Read More

Your computer's newest antivirus probably comes with live updates so it can arm itself against the latest trojan-phishing-spyware attack.

A Dime's Worth of Difference
Hugh Ross, Ph.D.
The universe is incredibly massive. Nevertheless, its mass must be spectacularly fine-tuned for life to be possible. Exactly how massive the universe is remained unknown until astronomers focused the Hubble Space Telescope on a patch of sky no bigger than a tenth the Moon's (angular) diameter, and held it there for some 278 hours. This Ultra Deep Field (see figure) successfully imaged all the galaxies (at least those… Read More

Hi, am interested in God 2.0. I Stumbled Upon this site and thought I'd check out your community. I think groups like this are about 2 things - Relationships and Results. The result sounds like somehow reinventing the notion of God or at least seeing what the concept looks like when it is penetrated more deeply. In terms of relationships and becoming part of a new community and building a social network of some kind, I'm not sure exactly where to start but I'm willing to try. So I don't know… Read More

It took a quick search to realize who I was dealing with. This guy is as biased as they come. No one has to paint him in a "demonic" light. He took the mantle on himself. This is a copy of a blog response to his request for Eucharists to foul in his words "desecrate". This is the piller of athestic and logical intellect. Right.......
I'm not even Catholic, but this mindset is criminal, (he wants them "scored" ie stolen from a church) and profoundly prejudicial and intolerent. And… Read More

The pattern still holds... When losing an argument, call names, try to intimidate, and trivialize. Now I'm a liar because I'm a creationist, and stupid cause I have no clue how I went from a 5th a day alcoholic to 6 years sober.
In the words of the immortal Bender!

A correspondent kindly let us know of a BBC television interview with Richard Dawkins which was first broadcast in Britain in September 2006, shortly after he’d published his latest book The God Delusion. During that interview, Dawkins let slip a comment which, on the face of it, seems to be an amazing softening in his (formerly?) scoffing disdain for the idea that a ‘Supremely Intelligent Being’ is behind the laws of the universe.
He made the comment… Read More

I believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. He then rose in three days, and if i believe in him i will have everlasting life.
No, i don't go to church, maybe once a month because i take my sister there because she cant drive.
I really think that Christianity should be defined outside of the church.
I think that God is more present in a church when there is nobody in it (physically).
Im not sure why there is so much crap in this world, and i… Read More

What hinders you the most, if anything, from participating at Redefine God? (a question posed by the site founder). This article addresses that question by offering a critique of some current site practices and approaches, and by providing some recommendations to help achieve the site's goals.
Here are five reasons I haven’t participated at Redefine God.
First, there seems to be an… Read More

Once again a conversation that didn't go along with the initiators intent went ~poof~ then came back virginal, untouched by human comments.
Don't tout your tolerance and openmindedness then take the ball and run home if you find yourself losing the game.

10 Reasons why Gay Marriage is "wrong".
1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage… Read More

The percentage of self-identified Christians has fallen 10 points in the past two decades. How that statistic explains who we are now—and what, as a nation, we are about to become.

It was a small detail, a point of comparison buried in the fifth paragraph on the 17th page of a 24-page summary of the 2009 American Religious Identification Survey. But as R. Albert Mohler Jr.—president of… Read More

Students in our colleges and universities live constantly in a tension between two authority systems: one more or less vaguely associated with science and the other with religion. Both systems are “blind” in the sense that the edicts they impose on thought and behavior are never, for the vast… Read More

I have been on this site for over a year, close to two I think. I have come to appreciate many or the people here as friends. People who I wonder how they are doing instead of just what we're discussing. I tried to build up that side of the RG equation with occasional discussions in the support section or jokes and funny stuff in chaos. I think I do my part to make RG better.
I am often asked "What do I get from RG?". "What do I learn" (Usually by Denita whom I think asks politely,… Read More
