Why you left your religion.
Fear is not a reason to believe. So, having line item removed Hell's Fire, what need did I have of God?

Having also come to this conclusion, If the choice is between Dogma and Evidence, a rational person will choose Evidence.

I "Blog" a lot. This is caused by mental boredom from add/adhd.



My hobbies are mainly computer related: playing various system games through an emulator; trying different ms shells; using linux sometimes. I don't have the money to collect coins like I used to...

Evalutation Christianity / Science ; a myspace repost

Posted on January 28, 2009 at 7:39pm 0 Comments

This is a three part tool to evaluate belief

systems. It is not the only way to do it, nor the best way...but a

better evaluation tool would include these categories and others...



1. Assumptions / Beliefs / Dogmas

2. Relationship to Evidence

3. Methodologies



Christianity verses Science

China's Charter 08

Translated from the Chinese by Perry Link



The document below, signed by more than two thousand Chinese citizens, was conceived and written in conscious admiration of the founding of Charter 77 in Czechoslovakia, where, in January 1977, more than two hundred Czech and Slovak intellectuals formed… Continue

Evidence First

Evidence precedes Dogma



No idea is permanent



No idea is necessary



All ideas are in flux as new evidence and new ways of thinking arise



I believe in evolution. I do this knowing the evidence for and even the "evidence" against. Contrary to popular opinion I have the ability to change my mind if I were presented with true evidence.

Why the Atheist doesn't exist

"There can be no such things as an atheist. This is why: Let's imagine that you are a professing atheist. Here are two questions for you to answer: First, do you know the combined weight of all the sand on all the beaches of Hawaii? We can safely assume that you don't. This brings us to the second question: Do you know how many hairs are on the back of a fully-grown male Tibetan yak? Probably… Continue
