The best way to debate atheism...

Started this discussion. Last reply by rationalrevolution Oct 13, 2010. 3 Replies

I've had lots of debates with Christians over the years, and I've found that the best way to make a point about atheism is to take the issue out of the current culture and into…Continue

rationalrevolution commented on Gaytor's blog post 'Why Jesus Never Rose from Death, Science FTW'
""Your response is that critism of any science of the Bible is a waste of time." I would agree with Dustin here. Claiming that supposed miracles violate the laws of nature is kind of silly, because by definition that's what a miracle…"

rationalrevolution commented on Gaytor's blog post 'Why Jesus Never Rose from Death, Science FTW'
"This is not the reason that Jesus never rose from the dead. The reason that Jesus never rose from the dead is because the whole entire story is made up, none of it ever happened.   This is one problem that is common in scientific and…"

rationalrevolution commented on Monica McGee (Monicks)'s blog post 'Was Hitler really an atheist?'
"No one should give any credence to the whole "Hitler was an atheist" nonsense. This whole claim has been cooked up in order to try and equate Nazism with Communism (which defiantly was a movement dominated by atheists) and to try and…"

Apollo and Jesus in the Stars

""The gospel of Mark was not written for you as a 21st century American" Exactly, which is my whole point of putting it in the context of the time it was written, shortly after the destruction of Jerusalem. "It was most likely…"

Apollo and Jesus in the Stars

"Damn this thing, it cut my post in half and I lost the rest of it. I forgot the rest of what I wrote, but I'll just make this point again: "The gospel of Mark is 100% star story, with Jesus as a fetus in a cosmic womb and as a new born…"

Apollo and Jesus in the Stars

"You do much the same thing as Acharya S, you throw out tons of miscellaneous bits of information, which don't tie together and aren't relevant. We know this, we know that pretty much any name you can find from 2,000 years ago can be tied…"

"If you are confusing me with Robert M. Price, we are unrelated, he has nothing to do with my website, we just happen to have the same last name. Will follow-up later when I have more time."

"Whoops, my post got cropped, here is the rest: The classic example is the issue of the "12 disciples". Yes, the 12 disciples are symbolic. All of the "pagan origins" of Christianity folks will tell you that it's based on…"

"@Diana Agorio Ahh, actually I didn't notice the associated link. Having now read it, and the comment you sent to me, (BTW I'm the author of everything on my site), I'd say that I agree with *some* of the points, but still not…"

rationalrevolution replied to Andrew Lafont's discussion 'Atheism and Socialism'
"It would certainly have been appropriate to call big "C" Communists atheists, but not the other way around. All Marxist Communists were atheists, but not all atheists were Communists, that's the issue."

Apollo and Jesus in the Stars

"Sorry, but nope. This is bun, based on crap from Acharya S, and stuff like Zeitgeist. There are a lot of pagan influences on Christianity, but these all came after the religion was adopted by the Romans, they have nothing to do with the origins of…"

rationalrevolution replied to Svendsen's discussion 'God officially disproved?'
"I'm not too impressed with Stenger. I actually heard him talk one time, nothing special, and really he didn't have a very good grasp of history at all. Generally speaking, I think that most scientists arguments against "god" are…"

I just looked over your blog with the articles by Price. I am unfamiliar with his work. But, I do not see any major conflicts between my work and his, based on those articles, other than he seems to treat Judaism as if it was independent of the broader culture of the Levant. He seems ignorant of Yahwistic paganism and fails to explain the origins of Judaism from Canaanite/Phoenician culture. For example: the illustration he calls the Jewish cosmos is actually the Babylonian cosmos, a perception shared by all cults of West Asia. He also acts as if the Jewish messiah was the only savior mythology in Palestine and that is absolutely false.
In general, I agree with his assessment of Jesus as a “Jewish” myth; but, I go into much greater detail in explaining the origins and development of that myth. And, I stress that Judaism and Christianity took that mythology in very different directions.
