Einstein

We're frequently bothered by re-re-reposts of "a discussion between a student and a professor," a rather brain-dead discussion about science vs. God, belief, etc. It's annoying enough and frequent enough that I like to keep this handy:

How the theist-vs-professor debate would really have gone

Evolution

In discussion, "evolution" often stands for both the fact that species evolve and the Theory of Evolution, which proposes the mechanisms of evolution: Natural selection, mutation and genetic drift as well as the idea of common ancestry. More in Wikipedia.

Homosexuality

Humanism

The world view of many /r/atheism subscribers is very compatible with secular humanism (Wikipedia link). In situations where an atheist would like to sidestep some of the controversy and friction with which the widely hated term "atheism" is often met, I recommend that they instead identify as secular humanists, provided that agrees with them. For a short manifesto of what (secular) humanism stands for, read The Amsterdam Declaration.

Zeitgeist

(from this site) ...makes a bunch of interesting claims about Christianity and introduces some conspiracy theories. It's a lousy atheist resource because it's horribly inaccurate. Here's a Web site debunking Zeitgeist.

But we don't need Zeitgeist to fudge up a correlation between the Jesus story and earlier myths: An early Church Father does it for us!
