Slam Dunking God

The naturalist understanding of morality asserts that we have evolved empathy as an impetus to cooperation. Combined with personal experience, empathy leads most of us to a "Golden Rule" sense of morality. From experience, I know what hurts me: with empathy, I know the same things likely hurt you too. Experience and empathy is all we need to decide most moral matters. "Do unto…

Remembering...

I gave someone (a Christian I love very much) a copy of a book recently at their request. I knew that the book would probably cause them to do some questioning about the origins of their religion. I thought it was cool that they asked me for it. To make a long story short, this person read about a chapter and then stopped. I’m not sure if he’ll pick it up again, but it didn’t seem likely that he would. He said he had “heard that stuff before,” and then gave me an apologetic response to it. I…

On the Means and Methods of Mass Deconversion Version 0.5

Hey all,

 

I'm restoring a blog I previously deleted. Hope you enjoy!

 

The file is too large to insert all of it here (its a book, really), so I've provided an excerpt that should give you a feel for what  it is about. You can download the entire document in word format here:…

"If God didn't exist, Atheists wouldn't exist."

I hear this now and again from religious people, especially Christians. It was going around on Twitter today. Apparently a few people found it pretty profound.   It's superficial and designed to sound clever, esoterical and wise. It's also, indirectly an argument from authority. God exists and that's that.  Of course it's has no logic and is pure nonsense.  It might better be inverted to say Atheists wouldn't need to exist if there was a God.  

I sometimes wonder if…

The Know-it-all Atheist

 

Every so often, someone will tell me that atheists are impossible to debate, because they think they know it all.  Someone will tell me that I am dismissing their claims before I have even heard them.  They accuse me of shutting out the “evidence” they have to “prove” god’s existence.  They say I am doing what I accuse them of doing:  sticking fingers in the ears and screaming, “La-La-la! Can’t hear you!”

Well, they may have a point.  I…

My aunt's crusade

I have been very open about being an atheist on Facebook and Twitter. I'm rather open about it in real life too, except to my parents. My dad's family is fairly religious and my aunt, who has seen all of my posts on atheism, has taken it upon herself to bring me back to God.



For those who don't know, I was raised Christian and was very involved in the church, to the point of being a missionary in India for a short time. After returning from the mission, I began to question my faith… Continue

There is a War Going On, Choose Your Weapon

Yesterday I mentioned that I thought that one of the best ways to debunk Christianity was with Christianity. There are so many other ways like philosophy, science, skepticism etc..but when ex ministers like John Loftus at Debunking Christianity (ex William Lane Craig student), Dan Barker or the folks at ex minister.org deconstruct Christian apologetics from with in, with their understanding, I think it is one of the more potent weapons in our war of reason.



"Mere Christians" complain… Continue
