     The other day I was having a discussion about "beliefs" and such with a long time friend and co-worker.  He has always listened to me ramble on about what I believe and has never, until now,…Continue

"Brandon how about you challenge your friend's thinking by asking him to explain HOW his god can be 'thanked' when, let's say a young child is spared from some tragic event, like, say a tsunami, while hundreds, or perhaps…"

"Yep, I've done it too. Usually in a situation of possible approaching calamity. Once the danger has passed, I always feel relieved but never have I thanked the god I prayed too or believed he exists. I know it's just something I do when I…"

"Ask him this challenge. You are in Afghanistan on a routine patrol. Out of nowhere, you are being fired upon. Do you dive for cover, or do you expect god to stop the bullets from killing you?"

"Classic "no atheists in foxholes" scenario. I find this line of thinking irrelevant to the truth of theism. As an interesting side thought: what do they expect to happen to an atheist who has no religion to "revert" back to when…"

"I suppose I don't see how it is a challenge to anything. Let's say you revert and beg God for mercy and to take care of your family. So what? Essentially, it was said under duress, and doesn't mean you actually believe in God deep…"

"We all can have these "Who were you talking to?" moments, don't worry. For example, if I have really bad diarrhea I'll sometimes just "pray" for relief of the pain that feels like I'm shitting my scrambled…"

"A couple of things: praying is really just self talk to begin with. When you pray, you reinforce all that you believe to be true and all that you want to become true. Thoughts are things, and a lot of people think that praying "works"…"

The electrical atheist

Posted on June 28, 2012 at 9:37pm 0 Comments

've decided to give this blogging thing a try. It seems that sometimes I need a place, or an outlet, to either vent or just let my opinion about certain things out.
