A realidade não é apenas as coisas que já conhecemos. Ela inclui o que existe mas ainda desconhecemos. Isso não quer dizer que devemos acreditar em tudo que se possa imaginar.<br />"Dar uma explicação sobrenatural para alguma coisa não explica nada e, pior ainda, exclui qualquer possibilidade de essa coisa vir a ser explicada no futuro." (Richard Dawkins)<br />Este livro surgiu pela necessidade de passar ao meu filho a oportunidade de pensar livre, sem a opressão que os ensinos religiosos impõem, podando até mesmo as mentes mais criativas!

Después del desayuno, yo estaba de acuerdo para ayudarle en la búsqueda de su esposa. Mi consentimiento, así como pastel de pollo con un poco de lo calmó. Comía con avidez increíble, resultó que ni siquiera podía recordar cuando lo hice la última vez.<br />Luego nos dieron cada uno en su coche y nos dirigimos al hotel. Se encuentra en la zona de moda de la ciudad, en la orilla del océano: el cuerpo principal y las casas de cien dólares, concebido al estilo de la villa indígena, fueron esparcidos por el territorio del jardín español. Amplias terrazas verdes cese en el edificio principal del mar.<br />embarcaciones de recreo y yates flotando en el muelle. A lo lejos, detrás de la capa, sobre un fondo gris del velo de niebla brilló velas blancas.<br />La recepcionista fue muy educado, pero, por desgracia, que el domingo que no estaba de servicio. Los necesito la recepcionista volvió pluriempleo de los estudiantes en vacaciones de verano y ya disparado con motivo del inicio de las clases en la universidad. Esto no sabía nada de visitante barbudo de la señora Kincaid o su desaparición.<br />

I was born and raised in a Christian church in the deep southern state of Mississippi,USA. The "Bible Belt" is a region of the United States that is know for it historic wealth of religion and faith. I answered a call to ministry at the early age of 20 during my junior year in college. Never was I a bad kid growing up, but I had some peculiar ways about myself which created a bit of concern for myself and probably as well as other. <br /><br />Sexually immoral thoughts and actions found their way into my life while as early as elementary school. Although I did not know what pornography was at the time, my gift of visual memory caused me to draw a vivid image of a man and woman having sex when I was just in the third grade. The South is stricken with a condescending cloak of religion which often leaves families damaged mentally, emotionally, and worst of all spiritually. <br /><br />My teenage years ushered in an expression of sexuality which manifested itself in some of the most inappropriate ways possible. This became overshadowed by my athletic ability, faithful attendance to church, and being active in various programs and ministries. This created a charming, intellectual, and polished young man who publicly acknowledged a calling to preach but contained many unaddressed issues deep within. <br />After years of living to the expectations of my surroundings, I was a three-sport athlete, minister, and soldier with poetic and creative gifts but still missing something inside. <br /><br />The sexual spirits that were never addressed in my life surprisingly drew me to the narcissistic and autogynephilic curiosity of what I would look like in a dress. This book highlights how a life of neglected internal issues created an atheist, lesbian transgender woman who was eventually touched by a God that she did not believe in anymore. That transwoman took a step of faith from a voice she hadn't heard in five years and didn't believe anymore. One step of faith turned her back into the man that God created him to be but he came back with a revelation of why his entire life was messed up from the beginning. <br /><br />Let's have a talk about this thing called Religion.....

Ever wondered why there's a <b>'you'</b> inside your head? At some point, everybody asks that very same question, and for literally thousands of years, the human race's best and brightest have puzzled over <b><i>how your mind bootstraps itself into existence</i></b>. Nobody's ever been able to storm the high ground occupied by consciousness, or offer a coherent, convincing explanation of what our minds are, let alone how they work. <br /><br /><b>Until now!</b><br /><br /> This book takes you on a fascinating journey using a series of extremely simple thought experiments that enable you to easily and safely deconstruct your own intelligence. You'll observe first-hand what's going on under the hood, including what 'you' actually are, how you came into being, and where you're going. You won't have to take anything on trust, and there's an incredible free bonus:- a new perspective on the '<b>Big Questions</b>'... topics such as whether ESP is possible, if there's an afterlife, and even whether there's any purpose to existence. In a vast, mysterious universe, this book offers a way <br />to take a fresh look at those Big Questions, but this time... <i>it comes with a little proof!</i>

<DIV>A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11. <BR><BR>With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster. </DIV>

<p>One of America’s foremost philosophers offers a major new account of the origins of the conscious mind.</p><br /><p>How did we come to have minds?</p><br /><p>For centuries, this question has intrigued psychologists, physicists, poets, and philosophers, who have wondered how the human mind developed its unrivaled ability to create, imagine, and explain. Disciples of Darwin have long aspired to explain how consciousness, language, and culture could have appeared through natural selection, blazing promising trails that tend, however, to end in confusion and controversy. Even though our understanding of the inner workings of proteins, neurons, and DNA is deeper than ever before, the matter of how our minds came to be has largely remained a mystery.</p><br /><p>That is now changing, says Daniel C. Dennett. In <em>From Bacteria to Bach and Back</em>, his most comprehensive exploration of evolutionary thinking yet, he builds on ideas from computer science and biology to show how a comprehending mind could in fact have arisen from a mindless process of natural selection. Part philosophical whodunit, part bold scientific conjecture, this landmark work enlarges themes that have sustained Dennett’s legendary career at the forefront of philosophical thought.</p><br /><p>In his inimitable style—laced with wit and arresting thought experiments—Dennett explains that a crucial shift occurred when humans developed the ability to share memes, or ways of doing things not based in genetic instinct. Language, itself composed of memes, turbocharged this interplay. Competition among memes—a form of natural selection—produced thinking tools so well-designed that they gave us the power to design our own memes. The result, a mind that not only perceives and controls but can create and comprehend, was thus largely shaped by the process of cultural evolution.</p><br /><p>An agenda-setting book for a new generation of philosophers, scientists, and thinkers, <em>From Bacteria to Bach and Back</em> will delight and entertain anyone eager to make sense of how the mind works and how it came about.</p>

In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris's recent bestseller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case<br />against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and<br />reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry<br />of the double helix.

As human beings, we owe it to ourselves and the rest of humanity to question our beliefs, and if necessary, the beliefs of others who may be able to use rhetoric, myth, superstition, or power to further personal agendas and to affect life and conditions for others in society. There are many reasons why we are afraid to question these beliefs, from the fact that they are often deeply embedded through indoctrination, to the fact that they allow us to remain in a comfort zone that shields us from things (or people) that we are unfamiliar with. Many people use social media as an extension of themselves. They post any manner of hopes and dreams, accomplishments and failures, political and religious views, beliefs, likes, dislikes, adventures, and even the most minute details of their lives. Social Media makes us feel important, in a world where we run the risk of slipping into obscurity even amongst those who know us best. This is why it has become one of the most culturally significant institutions of our day. Social Media is like a two-way mirror, we can see out, but the world can see in as well. It could be argued that many people allow the curtains to be open a bit wide, but we can use that window to explore how people construct religion, with the working theory that people created Gods, rather than the other way around.
