Faith vs Faith

Faith in science is not equivalent to faith in the supernatural. Faith in science is the evidentially based belief that the acquisition of knowledge will continue at the same pace as it has in the recent past, This will bring in its wake continued technological and theoretical developments that drive sociological changes, which in turn will distance us even further from the bronze age superstitions of our intellectual infancy. Faith in the supernatural brings stagnation not change. It is the…See More

From FB: Taking my own advice is hard :(

I should really start taking my own advice. Here's a response I wrote on an article about debating with creationists: "You can't debate these people. For a start they don't even know how to frame a rational argument, so the very foundation of debate is missing. They are also incapable of critical thinking, or merely entertaining the notion that they may be wrong. It's a waste of time. Use them for target practice (metaphorically of course) if you must, but don't expect a satisfying…See More

From my Xanga: Why I don't hate god

Posted on April 25, 2011 at 10:07pm 4 Comments



  During the course of conversation with many Christians, sometimes before, sometimes after I've been informed yet again I'm probably going to burn for eternity, I am often asked the following question:



Why do you hate God?



My response is always inadequate, because of course I don't hate god. How can you hate something that you know doesn't…
