I am only a little familiar with a few religions, but it seems that most of them require a large amount of blind faith. Are there any organized religions based around facts and logic? If such a group does exist, can it be called a religion?

Great answer, and I agree that most religions were created to help control the masses. I will bet the Samson fight was one at a time, like a cool Bruce Lee movie. The bad guys just stand in a circle around our hero and come at him one at a time:-)
mgeorge1050, That's a big circle! LOL!
Hopefully one day we'll also find a way to live to be 930 years old like Adam did. :-)

Very interesting comments, thanks for your answer.
Atheism does not involve faith. It's a conclusion based on what the individual knows about the world around them.
"Only if you start with the premise that the Bible is the Word of God and God is who he says he is can you see the truth" Worst advice ever. Doubt, not blind certainty, is the first step toward the truth. Question everything.
Dremer really? Then what proof do you have there is no God? Even an avowed atheist will admit you can't prove there is no God so you have to have faith that there is no God. And Titen where did I say not to question anything?
I don't have 'faith' that there is no god. The evidence provided does not support a god, therefore I will live my life as if he doesn't exist. Evidence can change my mind and that's the opposite of faith.
The Bible says “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” “immoral people do not believe in God.”The meaning is not “unintelligent people do not believe in God.” Rather, the meaning of the text is “immoral people do not believe in God.”
Your do know gravity is based on science and fact, right? You sound like an obedient sheep following his Shepard, good luck with that. By comparing things like gravity to the Bible tells me that no comment I could make will matter to you.
Actually your statement demonstrates clearly that you will twist anything I say, do not comprehend analogy and so you are the one to whom no comment I could make will matter! Hard to dialogue with someone whose strongest argument is name calling.
Hey mgeorge does the force of gravity act at light speed?, & why does gravity's strength or intensity fall off at an inverse square of it's distance?, & how do cells detect gravity?...Can i have some science based answers on those questions p
Didn't mean to offend you DTMB, just trying to have a little discussion. Thanks for you involvement.
Dave this is what usually happens with those who DO aim to offend if you can get past their reconstructing or mischaracterizing what you say and challenge them with the truth they retreat, although I give credit to mgeorge for doing it gracefully.
Titen, you say "question everything" ... so should you question that statement? I'm only abiding by your rule, or if you don't question your rule to "question everything" aren't you a hypocrite.
such a stupid writing .. atheism do not have any philosophy or faith and secondly the best and more peace full religion in the world is Islam ..its has a dimension and a way of life in it the women have the rights and their is a distinction
