O caminho mais rápido para a irrelevância

Novo Ateísmo - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 10:00
Como já toda a gente deve saber, a Irlanda disse que "sim" à proposta de igualdade para os nossos amigos gays e lésbicas de puderem casar com os mesmos direitos que os heteros.

Progresso civilizacional.


E ainda por cima na Irlanda, um país com fortíssimas raízes católicas.

Não é de estranhar (mas de desesperar) que no Vaticano, o Cardeal Pietro Parolin (aquele que é para todos os efeitos o número dois na hierarquia) que tal resultado é uma "derrota para a humanidade".



Duas coisas

1) continuai assim, senhores. É o caminho mais rápido para a irrelevância e menos influência.

2) uma instituição onde já foi provado que escondeu e não puniu padres pedófilos, fez o que fez com as mulheres irlandesas e os seus filhos, e diz que eutanásia, interrupção voluntária da gravidez e anticoncepcionais são pecado e as pessoas que o fazem são imorais, tem muito pouco onde se apoiar para poder dar "recados".

A porta é por ali.

O diabo está em todo o lado (aparentemente)!!

Novo Ateísmo - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 10:00
Ahhhh... que saudades de "desancar” no nosso velho Pat (e uma coisa que temos que admitir é que o homem “sofre” de longevidade). Já fazia algum tempo e já me “fazia falta”.

Ainda mais neste assunto que junta duas coisas que são importantes para mim, boas escolhas alimentares e demagogia religiosa.

Então, vamos recapitular, o nosso Pat acha que desordens alimentares podem ser alvo de um “programa de reabilitação”, mas que o mais certo é pode ser tratado “como possessão demoníaca”, ou que “é como um demónio que precisa de ser expulso”.

Exemplos de demónios...

 

 

Padre Sousa Lara, como pode ver, ainda tem muito que aprender sobre exorcismos. Fale com o Pat e abram em conjunto uma clínica de perda de peso.

O Jornal I faz uma "viagem no tempo"

Novo Ateísmo - Mon, 05/18/2015 - 10:00
O Jornal I apostou forte na promoção da ficção irracional e fez uma peça com a nova "coqueluche" dos católicos, o padre Sousa Lara.


O artigo está aqui e é de ler, para ver o que os nosso vizinhos que acreditam em demónios, possessões, e diabo.

E tudo isto como se fosse para ser levado a sério.

Como é que um jornal pode promover a irracionalidade e obscurantismo desta forma, é algo que escapa a compreensão de qualquer pessoa que viva no século 21.... ou melhor, que viva para além do séculos 18.

Mas a pior parte (para mim) até nem é essa.

Logo no parágrafo introdutório pode-se ler o seguinte

"Desde 2008 faz exorcismos todas as sextas-feiras em Lamego e já lhe passaram pelas mãos mais de 200 casos graves, alguns enviados por psiquiatras."

Se assim é, devia-se saber que psiquiatras são estes e retirar-lhes a licença. Um médico que faça tal coisa deve ser barrado de ver pacientes, uma vez que está a ter uma má prática que pode custar vidas.

(ainda) mais boa notícias

Novo Ateísmo - Thu, 05/14/2015 - 09:30


Parece que as boas notícias não vêm só de Portugal. Vejam esta última sondagem da Pew Research Center.

“A percentagem de adultos (18 anos ou mais) que se descrevem como cristãos caiu quase oito porcento em apenas sete anos, de 78.4 medido por uma sondagem da Pew em 2007 para 70.6 em 2014.
No mesmo período, a percentagem de Americanos que se descrevem como “não filiados numa religião” – sejam ateístas, agnósticos ou “nada em particular - aumentou seis pontos de 16.1% para 22.8%."




E uma coisa é certa, se observamos esta tendência num país como é os Estados Unidos, onde é um "sufoco" não se ser religioso, é um sinal que é uma consequência inevitável cada vez mais as pessoas deixarem de ser religiosos. E isso é bom.

Estamos no bom caminho.



e vão 98

Novo Ateísmo - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 04:00
98 anos sem dar qualquer sinal.

Apareceu a três crianças (bem escolhida a população diga-se), e a mais ninguém, porque isto de aparecer a fiéis é uma coisa cansativa.

E depois foi o "milagre" do sol

Um "milagre" tão portentoso que " A chuva que caía cessou, as nuvens entreabriram-se deixando ver o Sol, assemelhando-se a um disco de prata fosca, podia fitar-se sem dificuldade sem cegar (...) e que  "Muitas pessoas notaram que as suas roupas, ensopadas pela chuva, tinham secado súbitamente"(sic).



Fabuloso. Se isso não vos convence, nada convencerá!

Oh, esperem, há sempre a parte de "sacudir-se e precipitar-se em ziguezague sobre a multidão aterrorizada", afinal, nada melhor para uma demonstração do divino do que aterrorizar crentes.

Tem sido assim durante 2000 anos.

Pode ser que a semi-deusa goste de números redondos e apareça quando fizer 100 anos a "aparição". Afinal para quem vive para sempre, o que é um século?




Boas notícias em Portugal

Novo Ateísmo - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 11:28
No Diário de Notícias de hoje estava uma notícia sobre o número de crentes em Portugal, e qual a sua distribuição


Ver aqui a peça.

Reparem na inclinação da curva para os que se identificam como "sem religião". Tem sido um crescimento notável e acredito que ainda vai ser mais nos próximos anos.

E outra coisa que me interessou é os números absolutos. Os "sem religião" são o segundo maior grupo, e todos os outros somados não chegam a este grupo.

Não é de se reclamar uma "voz" mais proeminente na sociedade Portuguesa?

Selecção de talentos

Novo Ateísmo - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 07:52
Olá!

Já faz algum tempo que não tenho estado mais diretamente ativo na parte da promoção do ateísmo.

As razões foram várias, mas não são importantes de enumerar. Vamos dizer que havia alguns "sonhos de vida" que se abriram as janelas certas para concretizar.

Mas vamos ao que interessa.

Queria começar um novo projecto para a promoção do ateísmo em Português de Portugal.

Um sítio na NET para um espaço de opinião. É verdade, "um regresso às origens" (estas coisas são cíclicas).

Se alguém estiver interessado, envie-me um mail para [email protected] para falarmos um pouco melhor : )

Working towards a healthier society by taking up healthier habits

Portal Ateu - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 03:50

The need for a healthy society

In today’s world, the need for a healthier lifestyle and a healthy society is very much. People are becoming more and more carrier oriented and materialistic. So, the presence of true values are lacking in our society. There should be more belief in God and the god deed and the harmful practices like smoking, consumption of alcohol, having a harmful lifestyle should be stopped and more time should be spend on making the society a better place. The atheists do some awesome job in making the world a better place to live in and removing the harmful practices. Their logic is simple, to improve the lifestyle for a better future.

The role of the atheists in building a better society

The role of the atheists is very significant in building a better society. They do believe in the existence of God and do stay healthy, thus setting examples for other people to follow and in this way they help to build a healthier and better society. But in this way, they mainly get very little or no time to take care of themselves and maintain a healthy routine. But they need to stay healthy and active to continue their work in making a better society. So, for staying fit, they do not get time for doing workouts and try out the physical methods of staying fit. They have to depend on the methods like healthy food supplements to reduce weight and stay fit and healthy. Now, getting food supplements which will have no side effects is very difficult. So, they have to undertake the methods like HCG diet and healthier food to maintain body fitness. The HCG diets include the intake of HCG shots for reducing apatite, thus burning of excess fat and lose weight. Apart from taking up of the HCG diet, they also take up some healthy habits like taking green coffee in place of other beverages, quitting smoking and drinking, taking more of green vegetables and salads for maintaining of a healthy diet.

These qualities do make them good examples to the society and they inspire people to take up those habits and lead a healthy life style like them. Most of the atheists who take up the HCG diet and other healthy food supplements usually follow a common style. They use all the natural methods and objects which have a less side effect. For the food supplements also they follow technique. They prefer the natural food supplements.

Talking about the life style of the atheists, they generally do not smoke or take alcohol. But, even if they do, they quit it for taking up healthier methods like over te schakelen naar e cigaret as they do not cause harm to the body and also healthier than the general ones. So, this shows their need to stay healthy and work for a better society. Anyways, most of them spend a lot of time in praying to God and do not practice smoking or drinking.

Atheists making fortunes online

Portal Ateu - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 03:50

‘Atheism’ is broadly a belief system that fosters not the disbelief in religions of any sort, but questions the existence of any deities. Atheists do not identify themselves with any religion and remain religiously unaffiliated. With more and more, young people abandoning their faiths and becoming atheists, some of them are also beginning to make money out of this new belief system. And by making money we do not mean selling atheist books and goodies to pedestrians, but big money like big businesses do.

The various wings of the same belief

There are many schools of thought to atheism. But the central idea remains that when we question, reason and need validations to everything, be it education, politics or science, then why should religion go unquestioned, it being such a strong driving force to the very existence of humanity, as suggested by most religions. The Internet has given atheists, agnostics, skeptics, the people who like to destroy beliefs, the almost equal access to your kids as your youth pastor and you have. This space that atheists have received to share their disbelief has led to skepticism among youngsters.

Role of technology and internet in the spread

The internet being the most widely used media of the era, and a platform whose presence is now felt in all walks of life and the existence of human kind, is also being used by these young and confident atheists to make a living. From selling books and tickets, to creating communities and blogs, young atheists are doing a variety of things. Such confident youngsters, calling themselves ‘atheists’, have for long tried to mark their presence on the internet, buy creating atheists podcasts, blogs and videos, and all this just to stoke the coal of rationality from going cold, but the most awe-creating testimony to the above said would be Trevor McKendrick’s example. This California based atheist, earlier a Mormon, is making millions by creating a Spanish Bible iPhone app. The inferior quality of previous apps like these, which were rated well despite their low performance is what rung the bells for McKendrick, and he could envision a new start-up. The turnover soared higher when an audio version of the app was released a few months later. Online werken vanaf elke locatie .

“It’s a joke because we don’t believe in Christianity and we don’t believe in the Bible. … I would describe myself as an atheist,” says McKendrick. Although McKendrick’s objectives are purely profit driven, yet he can’t avoid the iota of guilt that he feels when people write mails to him seeking prayer and religious guidance, thinking of him to a priest. “I got emails from people asking me to pray for their son because he has cancer, or asking me to interpret Bible verses because not everyone realizes that we are a business so they think that I am a pastor or a priest or whatever,” McKendrick said. “If you are emailing a maker of an app to get help for your son, you are probably not in a great spot. So trading that for profit weighs on me a little bit.”

 

How Treppenlifte are proving to be a boon to atheists

Portal Ateu - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 03:49

If you are one of the many God-loving people who have taken a stand never to lay your hands on anything that has been invention by the world of science, you will be mighty surprised to find out how regular church goers are embracing the concept of Treppenlifte that has brought health and swiftness back to their lives again. People over the age of 70, who spend most of their free time reading the bible, cooped up in their rooms are fast developing diseases like arthritis which makes it extremely painful top travel down shafts of stairs in order to step outside their homes. This is where Treppenlifte come into use and prevents them from becoming those sort of people who become confined their homes in their old age.

Be independent

If you have led an independent life all your life, there is no need for you to become dependent on others in your old age. Are you proud that you have not missed a Sunday of visiting the church? Do you want to start missing now just because you are afraid of climbing down a few stairs? When you have Treppenlifte in your life, you do not have to worry about your health any longer. Be in control of your own sickness and health by investing in Treppenlifte. Studies show that the reason behind Treppenlifte being so popular among people who are strern believers of atheism is because this is an instrument that lets you take the reins of your life into your hands. If the saying “God helps those who help themselves” be believed, it should also be believed that man, no matter how old he grows, should not bow down in front of other man for help.

Be comfortable

No God would wish pain or suffering upon His subject, hence every time you strain yourself or put yourself through much pain just to take a few steps outside of your home in order to reach the church, know in your heart that you are sinning. Why would you deliberately put yourself through so much of discomfort when all you need to rid yourself of any such troubles in life is simply buy a Treppenlift? Apart from being comfortable, Treppenlifte are also faster. While it would normally take you about 3 minutes to travel down an average sized shaft, Treppenlifte does the same job in half that time. This also enables you to spend time in the house of God or in your favorite mode of leisure. The German site http://treppenliftevergleich.de gives us great atlernatives to buy these online at cheap rates.

Not that expensive

If you have refrained from installing a Treppenlift owing to the idea of it being expensive, think twice. Compared to amount of hospital bills it would cost you if any mishap occurs during your climb down the stairs, Treppenlift is surely the more safe and inexpensive alternative. Being mortals, all men can do is take care of their lives, which is surely a gift from the Almighty himself, as best as they can. If you think about it, you will find that Treppenlifte are just a small step that helps you achieve just that.

 

The Connection Between Science And Atheism

Portal Ateu - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 03:48

Science never accepts a thing without proper and valid reason; likewise atheism never gives place to any theory that does not have any strong acceptable ground. Atheism celebrities the life of human being they emphasize upon the life of a person and abiding by the rules of religion is not the priority for them. They never entertain the fear of God; even they are not concerned about being the subject of his nuisance. They just believe that human being is the ultimate truth and the time is the esteemed thing that must be valued with regard, sympathy and love. Nothing else should come in between this and nothing should be the priority.

Similarity of atheism and science

Science comes to a conclusion or decision through research and experiments, and atheism accepts a theory with deeper study. They never talks about anything until they are fully acknowledged about the matter. All the atheists are quite knowledgeable and their knowledge will enthrall you. The numbers of atheists are higher in the eastern continent and Asian country like India, Bangladesh. From the very old period the notion is clear to them, few of them believes that God does not exist but a power exists that controls the entire universe. The power does not have any form or shape, and it cannot be touched or seen like the natural element air. Air does exist but we can only feel it, likewise the power does exist that controlling the entire universe to be synchronized. Without the presence of that specific power world can move with such a nice synchronization.

Most of the scientists are atheists

If you are unknown to the fact, it must be mentioned for your acknowledgement that most of the scientists are atheists do not believe upon the existence of God as they cannot see him or feel his existence in the universe. They all accept that a power works but that cannot be the God. And they are trying how they can attribute the power. And a group is also trying to find out whether God really exist or it just a primeval notion that come from the fear of the wrath of nature. The primordial people used to believe that the natural disaster occurred due to the wrath of the God and from that phenomenon they started to worship the God. If you observe the Greek history you will see that they have mainly worshipped the God of nature like Apollo and many more.

Why they decline the existence of God?

The atheists believe upon this theory when it comes to the origin of God, and believe that few people have utilized this sensation of fear and by taking advantage of the simplicity and fear of common people they had created a profession and a way to earn more and more wealth. Hence they deny the presence of God; they think that the fear is the God. If people can eradicate the fear and can live his life up to its full extent only then their purpose of life will be fulfilled.

How Atheism Has Spread In Europe And The Growth Of Atheism

Portal Ateu - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 03:48

For a very long period Europe was under the veil of superstition and ignorance, with Renaissance the situation and condition of the continent started to transform. People learned to be inquisitive and started to find the reason behind the time-honored customs and rules of the society as well as of the religion. A whole library of manuscript was written over the subject whether God is present or just a gimmick that was introduced by the power seeking persons who want to deprive the ignorant part of the society in the name of God and with the fear of ultimate judgment. They started to show reason behind their thought and those reasons were inevitably true.

The growing follower of the theory of atheism in Europe

The theories of atheism were not welcomed by European as the fear of the last judgment was in their mind, and even in these modern days people blindly follow the customary rules that were introduced in the ancient times. But slowly atheism is making its own place, the change is quite slow hence it does not come into the notice, but nowadays the numbers of followers of this theory have come into a noticeable stage. And it is said all of them have gained excellence in their own field, the practice of denying the existence of God is not at all easy, and it needs lots of courage and advancement of thought. It’s hard to break through the notion that was implemented in us from our childhood. We are make to trust upon the theory that God is omnipresent and he is gauging our activities and at the very last day of our life our activities will be judged by him, in order to decide our final destination- the heaven or else the hell.

Atheists are far more intelligent than normal people

Hence it can be said that people who are claiming themselves are quite bold and have deeper knowledge about the thing, as to deny the existence of God at first they need to gain knowledge about him. Without knowing properly about God it is not entertained by the theory to deny the existence of God. But they never disrespect God, and it’s impossible to disrespect the thing which does not mean anything to you.

Will the growing number of atheists bring change into the society?

These were the commencing point of atheism, with altering era and time the notion and the reasons are being altered but the fundamental theory remains the same that is the denying of the existence of God. Chronology is the evidence that most of the notable persons were atheists who were able to bring change to the era with their aura of knowledge and reasonability. Hence Europe is looking forward what magic they can bring and what will be the result of the miracle that will benefit the society of the entire continent. They must focus upon the biggest problem of the era and must try hard to bring freedom.

Theism is not abhorrence

Portal Ateu - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 03:47

People who disbelieve upon the conventional theories that are related on the existence of God or people who just deny the existence of the supreme powerful God are known to be aesthetic. The phrase atheism is derived from the Greek word atheos that means without God, that was used to decline the existence of God. In the middle age when people started to become dissatisfied with the exuberance of religion and its negative impact upon the society and the life of normal people they started to desire a world where religion will not shackle the people by the fear of the ultimate punishment. Hence few of them started to deny the presence of the God, but actually they were denying the authority of the priest and their pejorative behavior that was harmful for the society.

Does theism have any negative impact?

Often people believe theism makes people weaker; it confined their thought as the fear of crossing the inscribed theory always deters them. They always live with the fear of being the subject of His wrath, and that’s why they don’t try to cross the boundaries that are embedded by the Voice of the religion. But if you sit with the chronicle of human being you can find that in all ages people have borne with the daring to cross the limited extent. Otherwise the growth that the people of modern era are enjoying and taking advantages of cannot be persuaded. If they remained in the constringent frontier people would still now think that sun spins round the world and thus never attempted to see what is further beyond their familiar area.

What is the root of skepticism?

Religion often makes us craven and the obvious reason is being the subject of curse that will be imposed upon them God, the disbelief upon God often make people courageous. If you learn the history of the aesthetics you will often find that they have passed through really hard time and in the rough course of that journey of life their belief upon the God completely shattered. Ear to They started to believe that there is no invisible sympathetic power who listens to the prayer. They just oppose the thought that God can diminish our sorrow, can eradicate our trouble. The believer of the theory do not start to follow the theories from any certain day, it is the outcome of several days often years grief or study. Only our real life experience or books can change our notion over something. Hence atheism is quite sorted out thought and belief.

Does incredulity means infidelity?

Often people abhor the atheists, normal God believing people have a negative impression about them, and here the problem starts. Most people categorize them as infidel towards the customary norms of society. But these are completely different the person has lost his faith upon God not upon the rules and time-honored customs of the society. Like the normal God-believing people they are also the integral part of the society, they cannot be abandoned or disrespect.

Factos, valores e raciocínio, parte 1.

Diário Ateísta - Fri, 12/07/2012 - 10:48
No seguimento da conversa sobre a homeopatia (1), o Desidério tentou descrever como devemos «pensar sobre problemas morais e políticos»(2). A intenção foi boa. A execução é que não. Concordo que o problema principal é não haver «um tribunal de última instância a que possamos recorrer» para determinar os valores correctos. Os valores são critérios de preferência, necessariamente subjectivos, pelo que é inútil argumentar com quem discorda dos nossos valores assumindo como premissa que os nossos são melhores. Infelizmente, o Desidério ignora as suas próprias recomendações. «Um aspecto curioso do cientificismo é a ideia de que tudo o que não é ciência não tem qualquer interesse nem valor cognitivo. Logo, é irrelevante o conhecimento da história e da filosofia, porque essas coisas não são científicas. A ironia é que quem assim pensa depois raciocina sobre questões políticas e morais à toa, sem qualquer conhecimento do que distingue um raciocínio plausível nestas áreas de um raciocínio ingénuo.»(2)

O Desidério considera que um raciocínio moral que descure a história e a filosofia é ingénuo porque o Desidério dá valor à história e à filosofia. Não dando o mesmo valor à astrologia, por exemplo, o Desidério não considera que um raciocínio moral será ingénuo só por ignorar signos e horóscopos. Mas isto resulta dos valores do Desidério. Se à pessoa hipotética que o Desidério critica só importa “o que é ciência”, ela também não julgará ingénuo ignorar a filosofia. Isto não é um problema no raciocínio. É apenas consequência dos seus valores e, sem um “tribunal de última instância” para estes, não se pode classificar um raciocínio de “ingénuo” só por partir de valores diferentes. Além disso, o Desidério critica um espantalho. Qualquer pessoa dá valor a coisas “que não são ciência”, nem seja ir à casa de banho quando está aflito, dormir descansado e não levar pontapés na cara. O Desidério assume um ser inexistente que só dá valor ao “que é ciência” para concluir que é ingénuo ter valores diferentes dos do Desidério e depois afirma que «temos de levar muito a sério o que as pessoas que estão em conflito connosco realmente pensam». Ao contrário dos valores, que são subjectivos, um raciocínio pode ser objectivamente incorrecto. Este é um bom exemplo disso.

Mais à frente, o Desidério agrava a confusão quando invoca Rawls. Uma forma de conceber a justiça é imaginar que estamos a criar leis e regras morais para uma sociedade antes de saber se vamos nascer ricos ou pobres, rapazes ou raparigas, bonitos ou feios, fortes ou fracos e assim por diante. Esta ideia de Rawls é boa porque, atrás deste véu de ignorância, podemos identificar valores consensuais distintos dos que somos tentados a defender quando já sabemos o que nos calhou. Por exemplo, um rico pode achar que não devia pagar tantos impostos mas, se não soubesse se ia nascer numa família rica ou pobre, provavelmente veria com melhores olhos a redistribuição fiscal. No entanto, a abordagem de Rawls não serve quando os próprios valores estão em causa. Quem gosta mais de arriscar irá preferir uma sociedade com menos redistribuição e mais oportunidades de enriquecimento enquanto que alguém avesso ao risco preferirá mais apoio social mesmo à custa de mais impostos. Esta experiência conceptual de Rawls é boa para identificar os nossos valores mais fundamentais e derivar deles regras sociais mas não serve para resolvermos divergências entre esses valores.

É por isso que esta forma de pensar sobre o problema da homeopatia não serve: «eu não sei se serei como sou — sensato, científico e tudo isso — ou um tresloucado. [...] Fazendo este simples exercício torna-se óbvio que não tem qualquer relevância que os tresloucados realmente sejam tresloucados e não tenham razão [e] a minha preocupação [é que todos se sintam] tão bem nessa sociedade quanto possível, sem prejudicar o outro». Isto pode ser óbvio para o Desidério mas não é consensual. O Desidério prefere uma sociedade onde as pessoas se “sintam tão bem quanto possível” mesmo que vivam enganadas. Eu, pelo contrário, dou mais valor à verdade e prefiro uma sociedade que distinga entre verdade e falsidade mesmo que isso seja desconfortável. Principalmente quando se trata do Estado certificar profissões, que é o que estamos a discutir para a homeopatia. Nesse caso parece-me óbvio que importa saber se estão a certificar algo que é verdade ou as parvoíces de algum tresloucado.

Finalmente, o Desidério alega que «no caso da homeopatia [e] no caso do ensino do criacionismo aos filhos dos criacionistas [não] há conflitos inequívocos de interesses. De uma parte há apenas um interesse vago em excluir da nossa sociedade pessoas de um certo tipo.» Não é verdade. Vender água da torneira como cura ou ensinar disparates a crianças criam conflitos inequívocos entre os interesses de quem o faz e os interesses de quem é enganado. Quanto à treta da exclusão, é outro espantalho. O que está em causa é apenas a sensatez de pôr o Estado a certificar crenças como as da homeopatia ou do criacionismo.

O raciocínio do Desidério não serve para pensar em problemas morais e políticos. Não parte das premissas certas, ataca espantalhos, tem inferências inválidas e contradiz-se, ora chamando ingénuo a quem não dá valor à filosofia do Desidério, ora dizendo que é «é completamente irrelevante o que nós achamos que [os outros] deviam preferir». Mas a pergunta é boa. «Como pensar correctamente sobre conflitos morais e políticos?» Como este post já vai longo e ando atrasado com outras tretas, agora tenho de ficar por aqui. Mas na segunda parte, daqui a uns posts, tentarei responder a esta pergunta.

Censo Internacional de Ateus

Diário Ateísta - Fri, 12/07/2012 - 10:05

Atenção, tropa! Está havendo uma iniciativa da Atheist Aliance International para contar quantos ateus, agnósticos, humanistas, livre pensadores e não-religiosos existem pelo mundo.

Atheist Census

O interessante é que os ateus do Brasil caíram de cabeça e estão liderando o número de ateus que registraram o voto. Tudo culpa do Paulopes! Não aparecia nem entre os 10 quando ele postou o artigo comentando o censo e agora o Brasil é o primeirão.

Outro “local de fé”, o Casino do Funchal, também idealizado pelo “arquitecto das curvas”. Ao estilo da Catedral de Brasília, embora sem a sua exuberância.
