Started this discussion. Last reply by diggerbanks Apr 21, 2012. 16 Replies

"I think there is. In my head is irrefutable proof. And it is quite depressing that other atheists come at a different angle. Not depressing because my ego isn't flattered but because my answer seems so true. The ingredients needed…"

"I don't think it's right, though to assume that any atheist is a humanist.  (And the reverse isn't true either.)  And you apparently agree with that. If I understand you right you want a core group of statements all atheists…"

"not to go all conspiracy theory-ist, but about your last paragraph:  schools get gov't subsidies based on the grades of their students. So, in a rather convoluted fashion, the more students a school passes, the more funds it gets. so…"

"It's easy too argue (I say easy because I've seen the late Christopher hitchens do it as would be able to spell out the same arguments) that doing "good" because you are ordered to do so is far less value than doing so out of…"

"I understand what you're saying, I guess I was combining the definitions of "atheist" and "Secular humanist". However, I think the vast majority of TA-ers are Atheist Secular Humanists, so that may facilitate the creation of…"

Abdullah Naqvi replied to Param K's discussion 'The Atheist Manifesto: A Clear Cut definition of'
"Thanks for clarifying, Steve. That's exactly it. Tobie is right in saying that anybody who thinks that atheists cannot be good without god is ignorant. At the same time, I don't think that being an atheist gives you any particular moral…"

"In my opinion, the only framework that would apply to everyone is reason. Is there any other way in which to come to the conclusion we all have?"

"You are not comparing the same two statements that he wrote: The first does not correspond to "I don't believe in God(s)."  Your two phrasings express the lack of something, a belief in god.  If you think about it, a turnip…"

Param K replied to Param K's discussion 'The Atheist Manifesto: A Clear Cut definition of'
"that's true, but a lot of people defend the "organized" basis of religion in that it has a clear-cut, well defined set of rules and expects people to abide by them. Thus, they think that as an atheist, if I don't have Religion,…"

Param K commented on Tammy's blog post 'Noticing all these things recently.'
"that's horrible. After I came out (or burst out), my relationship with my mum became (and still is) kinda like the DMZ. It's usually peaceful, but little incidents may escalate into WWIII."
