Brian Sellers replied to Jaret's discussion 'Is there even a point to debate Christians?'
"I should clarify something.  When I say that "I've never ended a long-running friendship with someone over religious differences," I mean that in the truest, most literal sense possible.  In other words, I've never been…"

Brian Sellers replied to Jaret's discussion 'Is there even a point to debate Christians?'
"Jaret, You've hit upon what I've found to be a fundamental issue involved with debating Christians, regardless of their level of knowledge about science, the world, and their own religion.  Specifically, the majority of Christians…"

"It's a very important point, but one you seem not to grasp.  Descartes and others like him were smart men - geniuses, some of them - but the existence of any god  does not depend on how intelligent its followers are.  Even the…"

Brian Sellers replied to Janelle Campbell's discussion 'Atheists were never Christians'
"Earlier this year I posted a thread about a conversation I had with a (now ex-) friend of mine, in which I revealed in no uncertain terms that I was an atheist and therefore did not agree with him on theological matters. As with your brief…"

Brian Sellers replied to Adam Weber's discussion 'The Irrationality of Atheism'
"Weak atheism, strong atheism... Frankly, I don't think the distinction matters too much. Perhaps you feel the same, Adam? After all, you don't offer any real distinction in your tirade. I'm assuming that what you mean by weak atheism…"

"Hi Samantha! I agree with your reasons for why religious people become upset about any sort of disagreement towards their religious views. It baffles me too why they tend to poorly handle criticism. If their beliefs happened to be true, they should…"

"I am sorry you are going through all of that. My best friend who I have known since grade school has recently become catholic...though she acts and talks more like a fundamentalist christian. She is very assertive of her views and brings up God in a…"

"(If this reply isn't nesting right, it's because I'm at work using an outdated browser.) Charles, I definitely agree that we shouldn't necessarily expect Christians to be nicer or more moral than non-Christians. I certainly was…"

"I don't think Christians are nicer than other people, but certain Christians seem to think they're nicer than other people. I think it's far more aggravating when a person who actively identifies themselves as a Christian is a dick…"

Charles Kennett replied to Brian Sellers's discussion 'Can a Fundamentalist Christian and an Outspoken Atheist be Friends?'

"*HUG* I love you Honey! :) You did nothing wrong. We both may never understand why seemingly nice people become horrid when their religious views are called into question. Our views are questioned all of the time, but when their turn arrives, they…"
