Why you left your religion.
Too many things in real life are just incompatible with religion. After all I'd been through I never saw God do anything real.

What’s a Physeter? A post about metaphors and prophecy

Posted on March 5, 2014 at 9:06pm 9 Comments

This is a post about finding meaning. Also crossposted at thephyseter.wordpress.com.

Why do I call myself The Physeter online? My internet moniker is the name of a beautiful and majestic creature:

The sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), or cachalot, is the largest of the…

How to prove God is real

Posted on February 22, 2014 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

So, I’ve noticed a lot of Christians use words when they debate.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a live debate, or an Internet discussion. Christians always use words. They will make logical arguments about why the world must have a Creator. They’ll talk about history, and claim the Bible is reliable and true. They’ll give personal experiences. They’ll talk about how morality must come from a divine law-giver, or claim life is meaningless without God.

Miracles, God, Free will

Have you ever heard Christians say that God refuses to make his existence obvious, because he doesn’t want to force you to believe? That he doesn’t want to override your free will?

Suppose you have two caramel apples that appear identical. You ask me which one I want, and since I can’t see any difference between the two, I arbitrarily choose the apple on the right because it’s slightly larger. I bite into it and—surprise!—it’s actually a caramel onion.

I can’t eat…

So-called science blog gushes over “Atheist Delusions”

Posted on February 21, 2014 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Ever have one of those moments where you think you’ve found something interesting and new, but it turns out to be the same old nonsense everyone else is peddling?

I found a blog on Patheos called “Science on Religion”, and I thought it sounded pretty good. It looked like either an atheist or a liberal Christian blog, based on the artwork and name. I thought it could give an interesting perspective.

It turns out it’s an excuse for Christians to crow about how real science is…
