Vision and Mission

Our vision is of a society where reason and evidence guide individual and civic principles, and where none suffer prejudice for a commitment to rationality. Our mission is to nurture a community in the Miami Valley that values secular humanism, promotes and preserves freethought in the public square, provides supportive fellowship, and engages in humanitarian good works.

Quote of the Day by Naes Lencalb

Essentialy nobody could possibly determine the existence of God without using that futile and insulting word FAITH which by itself holds a somewhat lack of evidence. Yet nor can you disproove the existance of ‘God/s’ for that matter without using a word like probability (we know only of science and math that is pretty much our reality), thus atheism in effect is just as ignorant and self-righteous as the degenerate baffons who follow doctrines towards certain God/s.WAKE UP- HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE OR WHATEVER YOUR MORNING TIPPLE IS- HOW ON EARTH (literally) COULD YOU POSSIBLY PROOVE OR DISPROOVE GOD AND REALLY BE SURE OF IT. I do not believe in what you might describe as a conventinal ‘God’ and certainly do not follow any dogma’s or religion i dont even believe in moral truth or ethical justice for that matter. But is it not possible even probable that a higher being of unimaginable, uncomprehendable ‘being’ (for better word)that is beyond our primitivley pacievable reality or our intricatly vast universe could ‘exsist'(whatever that means) why does a ‘god’ or ‘higher entity’ have to be labled as part of a religion.I dont know and niether does anyone else. Existance of god?-not even worth answeringAGNOSTICISM NIHILISMIn addition to this utterly pointless rant which indeed it is, at least athiests dont just bend over, they challenge despite of mass confusion. Yet still cannot disproove god to anything little than an idea-well maybe ones of religion ie. Christianity- I do feel people of religious faiths are excrutiatingly nieve.IF you disagree please write something after this post that provokes thought, is challenging and holds some integrable truth I’d genuinely be interested i could be wrong, i might be right but dont give in without a fight-i joke, i joke- i cant fightI feel that i have turned this magnificent resource of credible archive insights into a relentless chatroom-sorry mr chris beach, all apologiesI really dislike relgion, even if it were for the better of mankind which it almost certainly is not, it disturbs me to think that people would rather have a comfort blanket of denial (faith) rather than facing the sure reality and horror that is life and to have liberty of mind and intelligence. sorry if i have affended i dont want to come across smug although im sure ive succeded in doing so admirablyAGNOSTIC APATHY for the better? smblak12345@aol.com – Naes Lencalb

Quote of the Day by Naes Lencalb

Literature written thousands of years ago is hardly enough for someone to base their very existance and entire reality upon surely. Does it really answer the unanswerableble it could be opinion -how could you ever be sure, what if there was a typo, or it was just an old novel. Im sure a lot of it all adds up but then so does Stephen Hawkings work. im talking of course of the Bible and many other religous texts. Will people be reading ‘star wars’ books thousands of years from now and worshiping George Lucas. It certainly wouldn’t suprise me. ??If there is a God whats the point of ze great big baffling universe we cant grasp- seems a waste of space(no pun intended) if it dosnt have a devine purpose? Id love to visit the Andromena galaxy but cant excell past the speed of light so ill just look at it and ponder seems pointless really. – Naes Lencalb

Quote of the Day by Tyler the Unjust

Religion is basically this: A primitive method of control used to oppress and control primitive people. In no way should it hinder an evolved people such as ourselves. If the priests and monks want to put their time to good use, they will begin searching their texts for a way to control the modern man. In essence, religion, like the dinosaur, had its time. – Tyler the Unjust
