Christopher Hollis replied to Charles J Hunsinger's discussion 'What is the value of Atheism to humanity?'
"Especially when even the concept of truth is subject to the individual's acceptance of it. Truth must necessarily be separated from fact."

"One might as well ask what is the value of truth to humanity.  Without objective standards for determining the truth anything can be justified."

James Cox replied to Charles J Hunsinger's discussion 'What is the value of Atheism to humanity?'
"Sadly my rational sense of honesty does not let me jump in with both feet without just a little twinge of 'well what if I missed something.'  While I am generally very comfortable with very strong provisional truths, making absolute…"

Nerdy Keith replied to Charles J Hunsinger's discussion 'What is the value of Atheism to humanity?'
"Well its one of the world's philosophies that takes a look at fundamentalist beliefs that could be responsible for the promotion of infringing the rights of others, unprovoked violence and sometimes brainwashing.  Please note, I am…"

"@Mike Long: Or...is it possible that Mohamed only capitalized the word in question because it came at the beginning of the sentence? To avoid confusion I always write the word in the manner 'doG', just to avoid any confusion as to my…"

"Now here's a situation in which (capital) "He" and "Him" might not only be grammatically correct but also useful. I COULD just assume that "he" refers to "the person" and "Him" to…"

"I'm kinda of leaning toward the "won't" side of the scale. Which is too bad really because I think Charles could have participated in some good interesting conversations."

James Cox replied to Charles J Hunsinger's discussion 'What is the value of Atheism to humanity?'
"I think we should make clear the 'what' of which we are speaking. If we are referring to an actual existent 'thing' , like 'James Cox', it would seem reasonable to capitalize. Sadly there are so many 'James…"

Gallup's Mirror replied to Charles J Hunsinger's discussion 'What is the value of Atheism to humanity?'
