Started this discussion. Last reply by Nelson Nov 24, 2011. 1 Reply

Ignoring for a moment the history and religious underpinnings of Christmas and Hanukkah -- I'd love to get some gift ideas for the holidays... Are there any books that you'd highly recommend?  If you…Continue

How do Christians know the difference between God and Satan?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Scott Howard Feb 22, 2012. 82 Replies

I often want to ask Christians (or any theists for that matter) whether they believe things are right and wrong inherently, or because they are commanded by God.  Why does that matter?  Well, if the…Continue

Scott Howard replied to Phil Tibbs's discussion 'How do Christians know the difference between God and Satan?'
"Oh, that's simple. If something happens that is good or something I wanted, it was God. If something happened was bad or something I didn't want, it was Satan. Over simplistic you say? We ARE talking about Christians. Even when I was one,…"

"Phil,Oh my goodness gracious... words can't describe the time I feel I've been away from this place. Ok, I don't know how engaged you are still in this question, since I've left for such a long time, but I'll answer really…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Danny Sanchez's discussion 'Is it ever right to use violence?'
"I'm not sure I understand your point... it looks like you're trying to say that violence is justified in expelling an oppressive invading force, but it's not obvious.  You ask a question that seems to be rhetorical, but condemn…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Isaac Turner's discussion 'A Question For Atheists.'
"So here's your argument: 1. Something cannot come from nothing. 2. There is something. 3. Therefore God! I think most of us find the leap from 2 to 3 to be a bit absurd...  Even if we concede that something cannot come from nothing, we…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Tyler G's discussion 'A Beginner Athiest'
"Well said, Bill!    That's a key difference between theists and atheists -- we don't claim to know everything.  We simply apply logic to reasonable evidence.  No faith necessary.  ;)"

Phil Tibbs replied to Tyler G's discussion 'A Beginner Athiest'
"I'd recommend focusing on critical thinking rather than anti-religious readings, especially if you're not looking to draw attention to your new epiphany.  As Nelson says, learning about philosophy and logic will be invaluable -- not…"

Holiday Gift Ideas - what is Santa bringing you this year?

Ignoring for a moment the history and religious underpinnings of Christmas and Hanukkah -- I'd love to get some gift ideas for the holidays... Are there any books that you'd highly recommend?  If you celebrate Christmas, what are you hoping to get in your stocking? Atheist themed ideas are great, but feel free to answer with anything -- books, movies, gadgets, whatever!See More

Phil Tibbs replied to Keith Patrick's discussion 'What is your view on vegetarianism'
"I can't speak for all vegetarians, but I can't imagine that a majority of vegetarians are seriously think the world will go veg overnight.    And even if it is what many vegetarians want, it's a silly point to make because…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Keith Patrick's discussion 'What is your view on vegetarianism'
"You're presenting a false dichotomy (status quo vs. zero meat consumption) -- no reasonable vegetarian actually believes that everyone in the world will suddenly stop eating meat and we'll be left to kill or release millions of farm…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Keith Patrick's discussion 'What is your view on vegetarianism'
"I think you're way off-base with your understanding of Nazi Germany.  Are you arguing that the 3rd Reich was morally equivalent to modern America because some of their people "craved submission".  Are you saying that the…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Keith Patrick's discussion 'What is your view on vegetarianism'
"  I don't argue that morality is objective, but I do think humans can agree on some basic principles that can be applied to an ethical system.  I actually argue with theists that morality shouldn't even come from God in a…"

Phil Tibbs replied to Keith Patrick's discussion 'What is your view on vegetarianism'
"I might ask a question then... If I go out to dinner with co-workers and they ask me why I'm not eating meat, what should I say?    I try to be somewhat demure and non-confrontational, but sometimes people seem like they want to start…"

Joel Osteen: I'm Still A Homophobe

"I would have loved to hear Pierce push Joel on things like slavery and raping women and children in the Bible, but that would never happen (since Pierce is a practicing Catholic).    It might have been somewhat reasonable, however, for him…"
