Go to: Shocking news on state-funded religious schools

Wayne Tomsett's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by Wayne Tomsett

This is just about the worst news I could have heard this morning. I am writing to Gove and my local MP to express my immense disappointment. Just written an article about the importance of being heard, and now we need to be heard! This is something we should all oppose vehemently

Hi Rod, check out The Quantum Universe by Brian Cox, it's new and aimed at enthusiasts as a really good introduction to quantum theory.

Go to: Europe's crisis of faith

Wayne Tomsett's Avatar Jump to comment 70 by Wayne Tomsett

Wow... not much to add here that hasn't already been said but the man is just spouting woo fuelled gibberish. Somewhat unexpected I might add, he is the pope after all. Although the blatant hypocrisy and extent to which he is out of touch with the real world is truly staggering, in fact, it is outright disgusting.

Go to: Out of the Darkness - an atheist's conversion story

Wayne Tomsett's Avatar Jump to comment 10 by Wayne Tomsett

Thank you all for the kind comments. I feel sad that those who finally make their own way in the world after a lifetime of faith based education and childhood, have become so far indoctrinated as to ignore the evidence of the truth of the cosmos and humanity's creation. We are fortunate to be such a naturally curious species, it's a real shame when this curiosity is blunted by theism and deism. I am one of the lucky ones, when I left the faith insulated environment, despite a couple of years of remaining true to my beliefs I never let my curiosity be dulled. It was a gradual, natural shift towards atheism via my interests in natural sciences.

Apologies for the link, thanks to Amplified Atheist who first hosted this piece.

Indeed, in many respects religion is the path trodden by those who shirk at the challenges one faces when first getting to grips with the complex aspects of the natural world, as the imminent conclusion is that it all works without god. This truth can be a hard one to bear for the lifelong faithful

Go to: Afterword from Lawrence Krauss' New Book - A Universe From Nothing

Wayne Tomsett's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by Wayne Tomsett

What a wonderful afterword, and indeed a wonderful lecture from Lawrence Krauss. Enlightening as ever. I can't wait for the book to come out, it's now on my wish list. The Universe is cold, uncaring and undeniably unaware of its seeming callousness in its inevitable march towards emptiness, and yet in spite of this is full of excitement and wonder. We are fortunate to live in such an age of discovery.
