Phil Robinson replied to Troy C's discussion 'Would you stop a friend?'
"Haha good course of action. Yeah "Darwin's bulldog" not Aldous Huxley. Thing is with that definition that you put yourself under is very much how an atheist would describe themselves. Dawkins, Dennet, Hitchens and Harris have all at…"

"I have to start here "I wonder just how many AIDS victims have died of treatment and not the rather illusive HIV virus?" Are you serious?? Really, were you dead set being serious with that comment? Show me cases where the treatment of the…"

Phil Robinson replied to Gustaf D's discussion 'What can science say about morality?'
"Yeah I agree but that is one of the dickhead arguments against it: "it's not natural" which is ridiculous. It was the first thing that came to mind in this discussion and definitely not my own opinion."

Phil Robinson replied to Gustaf D's discussion 'What can science say about morality?'
"I understand your point about consent, but what I can not fully agree with is that a whole people, if given the choice and education of what life would be like as both independent and as a surf, that they would all still chose to be servile to men.…"

Phil Robinson replied to Gustaf D's discussion 'What can science say about morality?'
"Getting a copy of Sam Harris' book "the Moral Landscape" is your best bet. The talk is about it."

Phil Robinson replied to Gustaf D's discussion 'What can science say about morality?'
"It can, there are many books on the evolution of morality. Starting with Dawkins' Selfish Gene."

Phil Robinson replied to Gustaf D's discussion 'What can science say about morality?'
"I have to completely disagree with you that morality is relative and this is part of what Sam talks about (which I totally agree). It's not ok in some countries to treat women as subordinate or sexual slaves when we can show that it causes…"

Phil Robinson replied to Troy C's discussion 'Would you stop a friend?'
"Wow, talk about obsession. I know you said often, but I take often as meaning more times than not which I said is a gross exaggeration. I have had my appendix removed, my older sister with Down Syndrome has had her oversized tongue surgically…"

Phil Robinson replied to Troy C's discussion 'Would you stop a friend?'
"I really have to disagree here. "Western medicine often does more harm than good" is a gross exaggeration especially when you look at leaps and bounds made with penicillin, the small pox eradication (which faith healing was of no help),…"

Phil Robinson replied to Troy C's discussion 'Would you stop a friend?'
"I wouldn't mind adding a twist to this question: What if a close friend of yours was critically ill but either (a) Was already religious and felt the only solution was faith healing; or (b) Wasn't religious but felt the only solution was…"

Phil Robinson replied to Troy C's discussion 'Would you stop a friend?'
"Haha kind of an oxymoron as the only difference I can find when looking up the difference in the terms agnostic and atheist, is that some people label agnostic as feeling like the answer to whether there is a god/s is unknowable and not worth…"

Phil Robinson replied to Jared's discussion 'It came from FACEBOOK! Crazy things your friends have posted on Facebook about faith that drive you nuts.'
"I can't help myself with some facebook posts; when they are bigoted enough or just not thought through, I have to make a witty (to the best of my non-comedic abilities) remark. Today there was one saying "Rely heavily upon the grace of God…"

Phil Robinson replied to Troy C's discussion 'Would you stop a friend?'
"I had an experience that could kind of be along this line of thought. An ex of mine, with no religious background or understanding (parents thought she would learn it in her life n make a decision, though this just left her with no knowledge of the…"

Phil Robinson replied to Tierra Wilson's discussion 'How did you come to terms with death?'
"Yeah, I've noticed you saying this a few times after people's comments. What else would you call it except nothingness? You don't exist so your consciousness doesn't exist so there is nothing, hence nothingness. What seriously is…"

Phil Robinson replied to Tierra Wilson's discussion 'How did you come to terms with death?'
"Depends what you mean by death? The dying part still scares me somewhat, however I never really had a fear of nothing after death, rather it was a sadness at everything I may miss when I'm gone. Losing my want of a heaven/afterlife came all of…"

Why you left your religion.
almost all of the above. I questioned it too much and went from catholic, to a view of a personal god of all faiths, we just wrote it down wrong, to a deist, to an atheist, finally to an antitheist.
