If you've ever read any Sartre you will undoubtedly know that bad faith was a central tennet in his "being and nothingness" as well as other essays (critique of dialectical reasoning maybe, ect). …Continue

I have seen often how Christian s specifically try and use this as a 'qualifier" for religion. Basically explaining that this is where sin has its origin. In my view its just that.. A qualifier for…Continue

That's cool. Irrational and annoying can be, well, annoying. lol. Stuck in an elevator, trying to ride the bus in peace or what have you. Not to disagree with you, really.

I wouldn't despise someone for being irrational or annoying, because in themselves these are harmless.  Frankly, which of us is not irrational or annoying every day?  Hypocritical and dangerous are, well, dangerous, and to be despised in my opinion.

So, bundled up and took a chilly walk to the store to get some Nos, and... Fundamentalism is not the only way to be a Christian. Christianity is not the only way to be religious. Religion is not the only way to have faith in a higher power. Atheism is not the only way to appreciate reason and science. If you justifiably despise some whose beliefs make them irrational, annoying, hypocritical, or even dangerous, this does not require that you hate everyone whose beliefs differ from yours. Especially if you think for yourself. =D

Has anyone else read "A Secular Age" by Charles Taylor?

I am just over half way through my course in Existentialism.  It's rad.  My favorites are Sartre and Heidegger; but I like Kierkegaard too, because even though he is a christian he is against the bourgeois-conformist version of it that most people end up being a part of.

Hello. Looks like an interesting group. I hope you can tolerate a non atheist. I do not follow any religion and find science to be overall quite valid and interesting although there are aspects of it such as The Big Bang occurring spontaneously from nothing and the assumed existence of such things as the Planck Length that I find quite dubious. If you would rather not have an outsider among you feel free to stone me or burn me at the stake or what have you. I would suggest crucifixion as well although I think that might backfire in the long run. Joke. =) Mike.
