Started this discussion. Last reply by Fred Werther Nov 28, 2010. 1 Reply

Recently, I participated in little debate in an online forum as to whether or not Dr. Michio Kaku and Albert Einstein both believed in a god. For a debate of this kind, I think we kept the discussion…Continue

Are You Ready To Give Up on the Human Soul and the Eternal Being?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Benjamin Jan 23, 2010. 13 Replies

My de-conversion has been a decade long process that only recently ended with the final realization that I am an atheist.  The mental struggle to overcome religious indoctrination was arduous and…Continue

Funny line from last week's House

Patient: Faith is not a disease.House: No. On the other hand it is communicable and kills a lot of people.This was from last week's episode of House, s07:e08. He is quite the skeptic.See More

Debate over Kaku's and Einstein's belief in God

Recently, I participated in little debate in an online forum as to whether or not Dr. Michio Kaku and Albert Einstein both believed in a god. For a debate of this kind, I think we kept the discussion very well bracketed and somewhat civil.I am not sure that I won anything here but is was an interesting discussion.  I eventually left the conversation when I realized that there is no universal definition, or so it seemed, of "agnostic", which apparently means a secretly harbored belief in a god…See More

"This is one of the problems I have with the TSA. Their policies across airports are completely inconsistent, and the procedures are not clear until they are being barked at you while trying to get your bags on the conveyor. Many countries in Europe…"

Benjamin replied to Becca's discussion 'US Airport Security'
"It is exaggeration to claim that pat-downs are invasive and that the photographs are just like nude pictures. I've traveled through many countries where pat-downs are 100% before boarding the plane, and nobody thinks they are being molested. I…"

Benjamin replied to Becca's discussion 'US Airport Security'
"No, her reaction is not "understandable". It does not take into consideration the overall system, the TSA's role in security, and is blatantly exaggerating pat-downs as "groping". And directing anger towards the TSA?…"

Benjamin replied to Becca's discussion 'US Airport Security'
"It is ridiculous to equate pat-downs to groping or sexual assault. I agree that many security initiatives seem reactionary and knee-jerk, but wistfully invoking "innocent until proven guilty" does not help or address airport…"

Benjamin replied to Becca's discussion 'US Airport Security'
"First of all, it's not as if "the government" (actually the TSA) is installing these machines in public parks. Secondly, your constant assertion that pat-downs are equivalent to groping is an exaggeration, and I could just say that I…"

"While few would argue that airport security is especially efficient, they do help address a real, albeit rare threat. The backscatter x-ray seems to be the next evolution of the traditional metal detector, and even though both have weaknesses, they…"

"It's really sad when people use a tragedy to further their delusions. Whether someone dies or is saved by the luck of the draw, it's always "God's will." But it's good to see you came out of that okay."

Unsettling Ambiguities, Amazing Possibilities

Recently, while taking a drive down a divided highway north of Mexico City, I had a very close call. A driver traveling in the opposite direction lost control of his vehicle, perhaps losing a wheel and came across the median. There was no time to react. To avoid the imminent head-on collision, the driver swerved back into the deep median at the very last second, rolling his vehicle and losing his life. The scene was gruesome, disturbing and sobering.Upon sharing this story with a friend they…See More

Funny line from last week's House

Patient: Faith is not a disease.

House: No. On the other hand it is communicable and kills a lot of people.

This was from last week's episode of House, s07:e08. He is quite the skeptic.

The following is an excerpt that I transcribed from a debate between Robert M. Price and a Christian apologist about the resurrection of Christ. His words really spoke to me so I wanted to share them with the community. I have also posted a link below to the entire debate (video).



"I've often heard apologists boast that the resurrection of Jesus is the most securely established historical fact of all. More so than the existence of Napolean or the…
