Here's some useful educational resources that I think need to be thrown out here:

- There are university/college level courses available for anyone to take for free, being offered here - everything from Biology to Cosmology and even some obscure fields - and they can be done from one's own abode.

Open Culture:

-This resource boasts being "The best free cultural & educational media on the web"; it's worth a browse. (For example "540 Free Online Courses from Top Universities" are available, as are free textbooks, audio books, films etc. To name a few things)

Feel free to add to this list. Smile

If you just have general interest in the subject, and need to get a bigger picture of what this is actually all about =)

The New Atheists make substantial use of the natural sciences in both their criticisms of theistic belief and in their proposed explanations of its origin and evolution. They draw on science for recommended alternatives to religion. They believe empirical science is the only (or at least the best) basis for genuine knowledge of the world, and they insist that a belief can be epistemically justified only if it is based on adequate evidence. Their conclusion is that science fails to show that there is a God and even supports the claim that such a being probably does not exist. What science will show about religious belief, they claim, is that this belief can be explained as a product of biological evolution. Moreover, they think that it is possible to live a satisfying non-religious life on the basis of secular morals and scientific discoveries.
