"Greydon Square Interview - Prominent People Project" at Atheist Climber Blog

“The Prominent People Project” is a series of interviews (kicking off on October 10, 2010) with a selection of prominent figures in humanism, atheism, science and critical thinking. Most of these will be in the form of written interviews, but who knows? I might, down the track, do some video or audio interviews too. This will be dependent on how these interviews are received by my readers.



My first interview is with the American Hip Hop artist… Continue

"Science is irreconcilable with religion" from Atheist Climber blog

from Atheist Climber blog



There are people who claim that science and religion can exist side-by-side, one asking the "how" questions (science) and the other asking the "why" questions (religion). I'd like to say I disagree with this stance, and for a few simple reasons.…

"The Mind is Everything" from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber Blog



Is there a sense of determinism in the universe? Does the universe have a purpose?



My personal understanding of the universe is that there is no definite purpose for the universe, merely that the universe is a result of a series of events, which were the series of a previous series of events, which in turn, are the result of a previous series of… Continue

"Humanity, the spoiled child of the universe" from Atheist Climber Blog

from Atheist Climber Blog



We are all born onto this Earth as the product of a mother and a father in a more-or-less helpless state. From the moment of birth we depend upon those around us to feed us and protect us from the ravages of the outside world. Unlike most other species on the planet who are born or hatched into situations that warrant that they are already on the move, a… Continue

"We’re All Doomed, Time To Get Positive! (part 1)" from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber Blog



The world is in some real strife at the moment. We are approaching a point where experts believe that we will live in an unsustainable way within the next few years, and the population of Earth will reach 9 billion by the middle of this century. While it is true that, for the majority of people living on Earth today, our lives have improved in health and… Continue

"God Evolved from Humans" - from Atheist Climber Blog

from Atheist Climber Blog



“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck…

"The Universe Cares Not For Us" from Atheist Climber Blog

from Atheist Climber blog
I wrote recently about the idea of a "Re-Enlightenment" and about moving forward toward a world which was not controlled by mythology, dogma, and religious doctrine. In a rather flippant final paragraph I wrote:…

"The Atheist Re-Enlightenment" from Atheist Climber blog

From Atheist Climber Blog



I have often wondered why it is that we are seeing an uprising of voices in the world of skeptical inquiry and atheism in the mainstreams of the world. And I wonder why it is that I am so heavily entrenched in this to feel it is important in my life to put so much effort into this blog at this point in time. Maybe I'm a little slow on the uptake, but it seems to me… Continue

Does an Atheist Have a Soul?



I've not covered this topic as yet, so what a better time to do so than now?



I've covered death, afterlife, evolution, space, existentialism, gods, demons, medicine et al., but haven't really touched on soul. And there's a reason for it, it's a difficult topic to cover with any sense of authority because it's a grey area, one where there is… Continue

"Scared of Death" from Atheist Climber blog

from Atheist Climber Blog



What happens when we die? Well I've thought over this one a few times and the conclusion is always the same. I am not afraid of the conclusion I reach.

Don't worry, I'm not dying any time soon. What made me want to write about this was a FaceBook comment left for… Continue

"The Bible Is Not A Historical Textbook" from Atheist Climber blog



I'm scared for the future of Australia, and I'll tell you why.



Recently I have been reading reports of education in Queensland that sugest that people who believe the logical fallacies of the Bible have been teaching biblical writings as historical fact. I don't need to break the bible down piece by piece to show you why it is… Continue

'"Dont just vote for them... Pray for them" - Politics and Religion' from Atheist Climber blog



Outreach Media have done it again. They have chosen a current topic (for which I applaud them) and then used it for their own message (for which I don't applaud them). As you may know, I have written on the Outreach Media billboards… Continue

Random Mutation and Natural Selection – An Example

From Atheist Climber Blog



In biology, most random mutations take place on a level that is either unnoticeable or of a nature as to be trivial to a species. Many evolutionary naysayers claim that evolution is false because of their lack of understanding of what mutations are, and how they could possibly be of any benefit to the plant or animal to which it occurs. They tend to… Continue

"Can we beat the strawman?" - from Atheist Climber blog



So often, when in debate we can encounter an immovable opponent, who, no matter what you say or write, is convinced that their position is right. There is nothing more frustrating than taking the opponent's side into consideration, but getting none of the same in return. This can be due to several different circumstances, for instance: the opponent may not… Continue

"Morals and Atheism" From Atheist Climber Blog



Believers in god often ask "Where do morals come from?" They expect the answer to be "from God", mostly because they can't imagine that something so much at the heart of human interaction can have risen naturally.



Well the answer is reasonably simple, but long. So let me see if I can be as brief as possible with this.



As I… Continue

"Our Future" from Atheist Climber blog

from Atheist Climber blog


Many may ask "Why have you got a problem with other people's religions? It doesn't affect you, so why don't you just leave them alone?"


Well the fact is it does affect me. In fact it affects everyone.



While religious fervour is not as bad in Australia as it is in many countries around the world, the trappings of religions are present in our… Continue
