Daniel Rockwell replied to Emily DW's discussion 'What's Your Best Argument For God?'
""5+8=13 alone, all by itself did not prove there were two piles of blocks, moved together to make 13 blocks." This.  A thousand times.   No matter how rigorous and correct the mathematical proof, it ultimately is only proof that…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"I don't recall that, but I wouldn't have bought it if I read it."

Daniel Rockwell replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"It seemed to me that Mercedes is simply very young.  A teenager, or perhaps even slightly younger.  Likely intelligent, maybe even beyond her years, but still very young, and perhaps not yet developmentally capable of the kind of thinking…"

"@Holo: Ha!  That's definitely an article/headline worthy of The Onion."

Daniel Rockwell replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"I was kind of confused by that question, because according to the accepted story, God supposedly gives us free will. So I would think that a theist would see it the opposite way.  Not believing in God would be losing our source of free…"

Wolf Blitzer Asks Tornado Survivor if She Thanked the Lord; Replies She's an Atheist

"That's great!  We were watching some coverage of this last night, and it annoyed me so much to keep hearing people say that they were blessed by God in their survival. So God was on your side, but not on the side of any of those that died…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Melvinotis's discussion 'How to acknowledge good fortune?'
"It's kind of funny.  I've thought about this in my own situation as well. My life has its due share of hardships (mostly financial, but mostly self-inflicted, or unavoidable), but the good has far outweighed the bad.  I've…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"I think that most of us have faith (!) that religion will slowly erode away on its own, based on its own lack of merit.  I don't think that many of us are interested in actively "recruiting" children to our cause through the same…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"Another important aspect of the entire exercise is that even amongst ourselves, there is not 100% concurrence on every aspect of our non-belief.  You'll find little pockets of side-debates and discussions sprinkled throughout these 36 (37…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"Well, the terms "troll" and "Poe" aren't really insults in the traditional sense.  They are the names that have been given to individuals on the internet who intentionally stir up trouble.A "troll" is someone…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Robyn's discussion 'Annoyed'
"One of the crucial aspects of Life (in general) is that Life is greedy and selfish.  Living things do not exist to help or be nice to one another.  They exist to survive (which means selfishly using up any available resource that they…"

"So...  Does that make Google, like...the Pope?"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Diane's discussion 'Have you actually read the Bible?'
"I've been reading the Bible for several years now.  No, not several read-throughs over several years.  It has taken me several years to get through it once.  I have to put the thing away after every few chapters/books and read…"

Daniel Rockwell replied to Resist ET Intervention's discussion 'UFO/ET Phenomenon'
"I certainly do believe that extraterrestrial life exists.  Our universe is far too vast, with far too many possible locations for it to arise for it to only have occurred here.  In fact, even if I were a theist, I'd say that God was a…"

Daniel Rockwell commented on Joseph Martin's blog post 'Atheism requires a leap of faith?!?!'
""Daniel, I didn't know you were with me from about 1958 until several years ago, knowing better than I what was happening. How did you do it? Or are you finding it easier to change dogmas than to give up the need for a dogma?" I…"
