Judeo-Christian = basically Christian?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hank Jun 1, 2011. 2 Replies

Hey everyone. In Australia, much as in the UK and USA, our politicians (either because they're religious or because they're pandering, like our atheist PM is prone to do) are fond of claiming our…Continue

Ho-hum, morality again

The old "religion is the source of morality" chestnut is one that's been polished so often by religious and non-religious commentators alike that it's difficult to find, or to say, anything by either side that hasn't been said. Nonetheless I shall summarise, in general, the popular arguments as I understand them, and elaborate on the one that appears the most plausible. Religionists, usually theistic, proclaim that their god/s handed codes of decent behaviour to humanity; they often refer to a…See More

Judeo-Christian = basically Christian?

Hey everyone. In Australia, much as in the UK and USA, our politicians (either because they're religious or because they're pandering, like our atheist PM is prone to do) are fond of claiming our democratic secular nation is founded upon "Judeo-Christian" values - not the Enlightenment values of exploration, discovery, rational enquiry or the rule of law that arose & dominated the late 18th century, nor the openly imperialist values of England that set in motion the colonisation of…See More

... and why I am.

 

I am not an atheist because:

 

  • I hate God
  • I prayed to God and my prayers weren't answered
  • Militant/fundamentalist atheists converted me away from God
  • I worship science and the works of man instead of God
  • I'm rebelling against God like I rebelled against my parents & teachers in high school
  • I think I'm better than God
  • I had a bad experience with a priest or church or…
