    Some Prefer to Question Long Held Beliefs, Than to Merely Listen and Follow Blindly

    Here our attempt is to get people to question long held beliefs, as opposed to listening and following blindly. We hope that everyone, someday, will be able to say that they were able to reason, gain evidence, and then understand the information in front of them before they decided to believe it. In this way, more people will think twice before believing in certain ideologies that will negatively affect them and those around them for the rest of their lives. Remember, just because you entertain a thought, it does not mean that you must accept it!

    “Man is a mystery. It needs to be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life unravelling it, don’t say that you’ve wasted time. I am studying that mystery because I want to be a human being.”

    ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    To ask the difficult questions and wanting satisfying answers is to be part of the human experience.

Secularism is the Future. The Present Still Kind of Sucks.

by Justin Clark

A recent piece by noted-skeptic Michael Shermer in Politico, “Who Cares if Trump is Religious?,” underscores how all is not lost in the age of Trump. As Shermer writes:

I’m not saying Trump is a closeted atheist, but he’s no evangelical. As a self-proclaimed Protestant, or Presbyterian, or something he describes as “a wonderful religion,” Trump nominally attends the nondenominational Marble Collegiate Church in New York City. Marble Collegiate was the one-time pulpit for the self-help evangelist Norman Vincent Peale, author of the mega best-seller The Power of Positive Thinking, an amalgam of pop psychology and cherry-picked scripture (without the guilt and sin), who presided over Trump’s wedding to Ivana. In other words, at most this is Christianity Lite, or Cafeteria Christianity, where one orders only the most appealing items on the menu.

Shermer argues that Trump was easily the most secular candidate on the Republican side during the 2016 election and that the U.S.’s demographics are moving toward a more overall secular polity. “It looks like the U.S. religious reawakening from the 1950s through the 2000s, then, might have been an anomaly.
