Promoting science, logic, reason and critical thought
Our primary aim is to promote critical thinking in all things — particularly with religion and the supernatural. People of reason delight in the natural world and cosmos as it really is, without mythic beliefs in paranormal entities. Belief in any god is taught — it depends entirely on which country, culture or family one is born into.
The scientific method, its rigorous checks and balances, explains the origins of the universe and evolution of all life — without books written more than 3000 years ago. Science has a “healthy mistrust” of a human capacity for “self-deception”. Instead it predicts, tests and peer-reviews; to verify findings and evidence.
Faith in the thousands of gods, throughout history, has been “belief without evidence“. It takes courage to confront a childhood faith. We trust the videos, links, Articles and Snapshots here will help in coming to terms with reality. Evidence, logic and reason (and neuroscience) explains why religion is purely a “state of mind”.
Religion does not have exclusivity on morality, education, truth or compassion. 21st century Australia must move into the future with secular, humanist values that embrace optimism, charity and egalitarianism.
