Yes, that's right, today is the tenth birthday of SFN's founding on July 4th, 2002. Since then we've had almost 670,000 posts, 50,000 members, and 1.3 gigabytes of posts and private messages.

Happy birthday to SFN, and thanks to all the members and staff that have helped it last this long.

Life is the poetry of the Universe
Love is the poetry of life

You do not possess belief, belief possesses you...

I'm always open to new ideas, I just don't let them crawl into my skull and take a dump...

"In every country and in every age the priest has been hostile to liberty; he is always in allegiance to the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection of his own." ~ thomas jefferson

 

Religion evaporates in the light of critical inquiry much like the morning dew in the light of the rising sun...

Religion is about belief regardless of the facts and science is about the facts regardless of belief.

To be fair, bananas are like 90% horse.

Remember - if the predictions of your theory disagree with reality, it is not reality that is wrong.

I was told you'd be here earlier. When there was cake.

No trees were harmed in the creation of this post.

But billions of electrons, photons, and electromagnetic waves were terribly inconvenienced during its transmission!
