Reasonism Blog on religion, god, christianity, islam, judaism, atheism, science, evolution and more.

Access Ministries, Public schools should not be used as a place where Christians can indoctrinate children. Do it in your Private Schools but do not expect Tax Payers to fund you spreading your nonsense to their children in 'their' schools!

Thank you for visiting this website. Marquez now blogs about these matters here: http://marquezcomelab.com/reasonism . The contents of this website will be moved there eventually. Thank you.

I have seen quite a few claims from those championing Islam to be scientifically enlightening, quoting Koranic verses that supposedly prove the Koran has known or predicted many of the Scientific discoveries modern scientist have made today. I found many of these claims dubious.

Professor Richard Dawkins did too and, limited to 140 characters on Twitter, he posted: "All the world's Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though".

This caused a massive uproar and many threw Dawkins a number of accusations including racism and bigotry. I think Dawkins removed the Twitter post but he wrote an article to explain and defend his tweet.

As long as there are people claiming how great Islam is in terms of its scientific prowess, Dawkins' tweet was justified.

Egypt is struggling not to fall under Sharia Law. We were going to summarise the events of what is happening in Egypt however Vlogbrothers from YouTube already did this very well.

We would like reiterate that President Mosri made a decree in November to allow himself to be an authoritarian ruler. He is backed by the Muslim Brotherhood who wants Sharia Law to form the basis of how Egyptians are ruled. The passing of this decree will result in Egypt falling under the rule of Sharia Law. After the military deposed Mosri off his position as President, the Muslim Brotherhood began organising a campaign of violent protests and they vow not to stop until Mosri is back in power.

If you're an American and you want to ban Creationism and Intelligent Design in the science classroom as federal law, then here's a petition on the White House's website for it. They need 100,000 signatures by July 15, 2013.

According to an article on The Dominion Post, Stuff.Co.NZ:

A Jehova's Witness filmed up the skirts of hundreds of women and schoolgirls in central Wellington, and when visiting private homes to spread the faith. Police believe at least 1000 women and girls could have been filmed by the man, 36, who would leave work at lunchtime to spy up their skirts on a handmade device attached to his briefcase. (Source)

Brian Cox and Stephen Hawking discuss funding science in the current environment of budget cuts in Britain.

Here is the transcript:

Brian Cox: What would be the consequences for the UK if we are forced to pull out of a major project such as CERN because of budget cuts?

Stephen Hawking: It would damage the academic community whose task is to raise the next generation of scientists.

Brian Cox: How can we make the case to government for an increase in funding in areas such as Physics and Cosmology.

Stephen Hawking: Maintaining standards in Physics and Mathematics is important for British Industry. We don't have large natural resources. Our success depends on technical ability.
