>From a friend ... as per guidelines, I am posting to ASTRO and ASTRO-L for
info, not for discussion (which should be conducted, fought out, whatever
on ASTRO-L). Am also passing on to other pals who would be unable to
function beyond breakfast if they didn't get this list.

For use (if you really have time on your hands...) in the
evolution/creationism/religious/rational thought/science vs. religion
landscape....

Good hard-disk space wasted by theists
This quote from ChristianAnswers just about sums up what is wrong with
Creation Science :
"Whatever the answer, faith in the revealed Word of the Creator is the
only reasonable starting point for all such inquiry."
* <http://www.biblicalastronomer.org/aba/index.htm>Association for
Biblical Astronomy - The sun, apparently, really does go round the Earth.
 The Bible say so!
* <http://fn2.freenet.edmonton.ab.ca/~azz/>The page that challenges you
with the TRUTH!!! - one of the kookiest pages I've seen for a while.
* <http://www.gelservices.com/hs.html>The Demonic Possession Handbook -
I thought this was a parody site. It isn't. You really won't believe
this...
* The <http://www.icr.org/>Institute for Creation Research - These guys
give real pseudo-science a bad name...
* <http://www.reasons.org>Reasons To Believe - Another typical
Creationist outfit
* <http://members.aol.com/dwr51055/Creation.html>Dan Reynold's MASSIVE
Creationism page includes links to more young-earth, creationist,
flood-theory, anti-evolution drivel than you can shake a stick at. Worth
looking at
* Miraculous pictures of Jesus and the gang. Pictures taken by people
who can't look at any uneven surface without seeing Jesus' face in it.
* <http://www.globalforum.com/Bushey.html>Barking mad xtian
fundamentalists. Quite scary that people can think like this...
* <http://www.portal.ca/~ground/crew/index.html>Ground Crew - Either a
parody, or the next Heaven's Gate...
* <http://www.cormedia.com/css/>Common Sense Science - the universe is
made of wee doughnuts, it seems.
* <http://www.christiananswers.net/q-aig/aig-c005.html>Bad cosmology at
Christian Answers site.
* An Old-Earth Creationist <http://answers.org/newlook/>attacking
Young-Earth ideas. - maybe when the creationists can agree amongst
themselves they'll be able to present their case to science.
* <http://www.sharpe-ideas.com/creation/ci/nature.htm>Creation
Illustrated magazine.
* <http://www.cuttingedge.org/ce1021.html>Satan's Little Ponies - see it
to believe it!
* <http://www.bible.ca/>The Interactive Bible - Astonishing ignorance
about the most basic sciences.
*

Sites that give religion a bad name
  
* <http://www.christiangallery.com>The Christian Gallery - quite
probably the sickest site on the net. Adults only, and turn image
loading off.
* <http://www.christiangallery.com/creator.html>The Creator's Rights
Party - on the Christian Gallery. Crazy, disturbing and dangerous. They
want to end abortion using nuclear weapons (really!). Again, adults only.
* <http://www.thundernet.com>The American Guardian..Fighting Crimes and
Perversions against Children on the IRC Networks, Web and Local Areas. -
Astonishing ignorance, hatred and hypocrisy in the name of Jesus.
* <http://www.hatewatch.com>Hate Watch - You'll be surprised at the
people this site describes as "Hate Groups". Basically, anyone who holds a
  different view obviously hates all Christianity.
* <http://www.tencommandments.org/>Society for the Practical
Establishment and Perpetuation of the TEN COMMANDMENTS - scary scary...
* <http://www.godhatesfags.com>God Hates Fags - the title says it all.
* Dinosaur Questions & Answers at Christian Answers. Astonishing
ignorance and scientific illiteracy - for kids!
*

Anyone who thinks that Fundamentalists don't have a sense of humour should
check out these cartoons.
(It's true. They don't have a sense of humour.)
  
* <http://www.rae.org/cartoons.html>Badly drawn, unfunny, anti-evolution
cartoons
* <http://www.gospelcom.net/rev-fun/>Reverend Fun - Well drawn, not very
funny, general christianity cartoons.
* <http://members.aol.com/dwr51055/humor.htm>CreationWise - Well drawn,
pitifully unfunny, anti-evolution cartoons.
*
As an antidote, try Mirage's hilarious Jack Chick Parody site - I
guarantee you will roll around laughing, with your legs waving in the air.

Info on various religions
  
* Hinduism
* India and <http://www.liv.ac.uk/~mhbarker/india.html>Hinduism
* Rastafarianism
* <http://www.cog.org/cog/general/iabout.html>Wicca and More Wicca. One of
the oldest religions.
* <http://hindunet.org/god/>The Hindu Gods - details and pictures (not
actual photographs, unfortunately =) )
* <http://www.islamic.org.uk/extern.html>Islamic resource site - rather
oddly lists my site as an Anti-Islamic Missionary site...
* <http://www.noi.org/program.html>The Nation Of Islam - Louis Farrakhan
and his cheerful chums.
