Is Atheism Faith of the Fatherless?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Perthy Oct 13, 2010. 3 Replies

I was just reading a page on the site Rational Wiki, which I'm fond of, replying to an attack on atheism. Under "reasonable explanations for atheism" is a claim that I've come across before, namely…Continue

Michael replied to Reg The Fronkey Farmer's discussion 'Sunday School May 24th 2015' in the group Sunday School
"I knew he was in uniform. The question was whether it was prohibited or fell under the protection of religious expression. From my reading it isn't clear. The military authorities will decide I'm sure."

"Well, according to the link the regulations also protect the right of personnel to religious expression and practice. I think context matters here. So far as I can tell his statements were made in a private gathering his subordinates did not have to…"

Michael replied to Dave Core's discussion 'A thought about Josephus'
"This isn't the main quote used as evidence of Jesus' existence-that would be: "About this time there lived Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who performed surprising deeds and was a teacher of…"

Michael replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
"Rousseau's view can be summed up as: "Humans are born good, and made evil by society." Anyone who accepts biological factors in rape must disagree on that score, as Paglia does."

Michael replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
"@Freek: I find a pervasive false dichotomy of rape being "either" an act of violence "or" sex. To me it's obviously both-hence the term "sexual violence", no? It's also not the case that all behavior has to be…"

Michael replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
" "The levels of violence and force involved in rape typically stop at the level needed for the goal of sexual access. Gratuitous violence is not typical of rape." There saying usually only the violence necessary to achieve the rape is…"

Michael replied to diggerbanks's discussion 'God needn't be a man-made construct'
"What you propose was the norm for millennia, and might be still practiced in some places, along with Sun worship. I think it may have been eroded when people grew with knowledge and wondered who made these things, thus positing an even greater…"

"Ironically in the photo that looks pretty close to a kufi (Muslim prayer cap) which, of course, would be among the headgear allowed. "

Women do not get raped because...

"Could someone being intoxicated lead them to be raped? Yes, if it made them more vulnerable to an attack. Could dressing provocatively? I suppose greater attention might be drawn, thus leading to attack, but from what I've read a lot of sexual…"

Michael replied to Unseen's discussion 'Batman Theater Slaughter: Would Gun Control Laws Have Prevented it?'
"I agree with your point Unseen, but just to clarify, Israel and Switzerland have greater rates of gun possession due to military call-up. Government-issued assault rifles are kept in the homes of eligible adults, which for Israel means both sexes.…"

Michael replied to Sassan K.'s discussion 'How does one go from atheism to religion?'
"“I had one thing that I was most certain of, which is that morality is something we have a duty to,” Libresco told CNN in an interview this week, a small cross dangling from her neck. “And it is external from us. And when push came…"

Michael replied to Rich's discussion 'On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the most retarded), how retarded is William Lane Craig?'
""William Lane Craig is not only a devout Christian he is also a very smart scientist. (Genome Project)." You're thinking of Francis Collins, who's a geneticist. William Lane Craig is a theologian, and certainly no scientist. That…"

Michael commented on Mark Say's blog post 'Bible in schools'
"The (private, religious) primary school I went to did in fact teach multiple religious mythologies -Greek, Hebrew (i.e. the Old Testament), Hindu, Norse, and that did indeed help to see them all for what they were: stories, often interesting, but no…"
