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 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…"

FSM win

"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…"

How dare you not believe in your Savior?

"Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, his friend, were Christians, who included Christian allegories in their books, so the resemblance was intentional. Since finding that out, I like their works much less... As to Jesus teaching the mere mortals how to turn…"

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…"

Michael replied to Jessi's discussion 'libertarian/conservative books' in the group Libertarian/Conservative Atheists
"33 Questions About American History You're Not Supposed to Ask by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. was pretty interesting-that you might like. "
Mar 26, 2012
Michael commented on Thom Kotch's group 'Libertarian/Conservative Atheists'
"Like the other Libertarians here, I have reservations about being in the same group as Conservatives. I'm sure there are so few of either here, though, as with most atheist organizations, that combining them was motivated by that. I…"

Michael replied to Anders Herreid-O'Neill's discussion 'Calvin and Hobbes'
"It seems that he didn't have a religious upbringing, going by his answer to a fan here: http://www.andrewsmcmeel.com/calvinandhobbes/interview.html (fourth question down, by Suzanne Kaufmann, Charlottesville, VA) Apparently she…"

Red Jacket, 1805

"Simple logic from Red Jacket. I would even call this "Native American wisdom" if it weren't so often asked by humans from all cultures with questioning brains. "

Michael replied to kOrsan's discussion 'Do any of us, however ill, have the right to die?'
"Although they don't often say it openly, the answer is: they believe your life does not belong to you, fundamentally. It belongs to God. Or, for some more secular people, it may belong to the state, to the community. Either way it is not yours…"

Michael replied to dragotron's discussion 'I'm not religious, I'm spiritual'
"I always see "spiritual but not religious" offered on various sites as an alternate option. I think it can be true technically, as religion is defined as Plenty of people have supernatural belief but no ritual framework like that, and they…"

Godonomics: Is God a Capitalist or Socialist?

""Godonomics"...lol. These guys have a very bad definition of socialism. Redistribution of wealth is not socialism. Only state or collective ownership of capital is. Jesus did tell people to give all their property away, but the end was…"
