"Again, beautifully stated and presented. ... If this was the site (ie, forum) for it I'd post a similar conversation I had with a couple people recently. That one was more political history, (ie, influences of the Founding…"

"Excellent rebuttals to all the points made. The scenario is a common one for me to be in with fundamentalist Christians. While reading your post - one of the best I have read in recent times. - I am reminded of a 3 hours debate with a Jehovah…"

Vote for God Jacobson!

I was stumbling around the internet this afternoon and came across an interesting question. The original post was on some very small, obscure blogspot page, but StumbleUpon did its due diligence and delivered it to my screen.The question (posed here: http://enlightenedostrich.blogspot.com/2010/06/vote-for-god-jacobson.html) was this: would you vote for a man named God Jacobson, take under consideration that…See More

"Niiiiice! I have to say that he almost seems to be intentionally misunderstanding you. I've had this problem while discussion whether a person can be good or have morals without the Bible. He kept intentionally sidestepping the obvious point I…"

Pretentious Questions on Facebook - Answered

Even though I don't live anywhere near the place I grew up, I still have many friendships and other connections to the people who are still there. Most of them I'm friends with on Facebook. I've gotten in the habit recently of just reading over peoples' status updates to see what's new with my old home.One guy's updates over the past few months have almost driven me over the edge. Here's a sample:"[name] Is wondering: who has more faith, the Atheist or the Christian? Your turn:""[name] Question…See More

Gaytor commented on G. Randall's blog post 'Why Can't We Change the Debate?'
"In the public square it's a matter of getting a source to set the terms. Bill Maher is a place where when it comes to religion, he sets the terms. We don't see much of this on regular television because they are broadcasting and selling…"

Dave G commented on G. Randall's blog post 'Why Can't We Change the Debate?'
"In addition to what others have said, there is a fundamental difference between a debate and trying to determine the facts. A debate is focused more on sounding good than it is on establishing what the truth is. This is one reason that theists tend…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I'm an American working in Israel to pass the time while I try to get dual citizenship through my wife. I'm originally from a small-town Missouri, southern Baptist household, but was lucky enough to have an atheist, college professor for a father.
Age
25-30
Why are you here?
Was looking for an avenue to express my thoughts on religion and philosophy and hear feedback from like-minded individuals.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
As I studied history for my MA I came across (not for the first time, but the first time I truly understood it) the concept of historiography, or the history of history. While wrapping my mind around writing a historiographical research paper, I found myself applying this methodology to religion and it cut right through the foundation of all I once thought I believed in. My journey into scientific thought and religious unbelief has yet to cease.

Face(book) to Face(book) Conversation - Pt. 2

Posted on May 11, 2010 at 4:30pm 3 Comments

[THIS IS THE CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS ARTICLE. THIS ONE IS MORE INTERESTING TO ME PERSONALLY BECAUSE IT'S MORE OF A ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE PAGE OWNER TOM]



Tom: Um no [ME], other way around. If either A or B, if not A, then B. That is sound tested philosophy. Thus, argumentally speaking, either side could prove one side right by proving the other side wrong. Besides, what person in the world would ever believe anything that they cannot see the evidence of? Totally ignorant from a… Continue

I was requested to post it, so why not? Here is the entire transcript from the facebook conversation I had with "the faithful" as was mentioned in my previous article. For anonymity I've chosen to use just first names for each person, if two people share the same first name I'll indicate with the name followed by 1 and 2.



========Disclaimer==========



This conversation is still ongoing and contains 98 posts as of right now, some are quite lengthy. Where I…
