After that religion meme went around at the beginning of the week, I thought this would be an interesting website to post about.  I haven't gotten a chance to look at it, but it should be at least interesting.

If by "interesting" you mean "full of it", yes. That site contains some truly horrible abuses of physics(general relativity in particular), and probably statistics too. Furthermore, it throws up plenty of straw men to try to attack atheism. If you want some real info about scientific analysis of metaphysical claims, try the sci.skeptic FAQ at:

http://home.xnet.com/~blatura/skeptic.shtml

Also try the Usenet Physics FAQ:

http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/physics/

And the talk.origins archive:

http://www.talkorigins.org/origins/faqs-mustread.html

Although the latter two are a bit over my head, and almost certainly over yours(sorry!). Rule of thumb: never ever ever trust anyone who tries to use modern physics to prove their pet philosophy.

There's also a small discussion about the religion quiz going on at:

I personally found the answers they provided for atheists to be insulting.

I didn't actually look at it yet, so thanks for pointing out it's bias ahead of time. I actually received the link from an IBM community christian group, so I kinda expected that. But it's always interesting to see some else's viewpoint (even if they are wrong. :-P).

Heh, always happy to serve. As a rule, I don't go around proselytizing, but a lot of people seem determined to paint atheists in the worst light possible. :(

If you ever want serious information, feel free to ask, and I'll ramble for a bit.

Hey, that's interesting. LJ automatically turns anything that starts with http:// into a hyperlink.
