It is beyond my ken that anyone can seriously argue that there is a modern scientific basis to the bible or any of the other religious texts that are at least hundreds of years old. I can appreciate those tomes as sources for social history, as guides to anthropological development or steps to a modern moral framework.
Although I have no faith I can grasp that the religious can cherry-pick stories for as virtuous examples or they can treat the texts as allegorical. They can even try…Continue

Otherwise, thanks for all the FB LIKES, retweets, +1's, reshares, etc. I appreciate it! But thanks especially to…Continue

I have posted an article refuting your Cosmological Argument. It is sad that you actually have people that listen to your fraudulent ideas. If your arguments were half as strong as your ego, you might have a point to make. It angers me that you fool uneducated people with your faulty and twisted thinking. I have read many of your comments and the comments of your…Continue

The following messages were a conversation that took place between Robert Adair and me. I am posting this conversation because I believe it is important for people, especially Robert’s followers, to understand how Robert operates. In this conversation Robert continually harps on this idea that I do not understand the Cosmological Argument. The crux of Robert’s argument is that the universe must have an uncaused cause. Notice how when Robert is confronted he immediately resorts to name…Continue

Note- Published in 2010, this article was a direct rebuttal to Robert Adair's counterargument with regard to the Cosmological argument. His counterargument is available on Associated Content here (Adair, 2010).
Robert Adair provides me with limitless examples of why people should abstain from religious belief and faith in God. Where do I begin? Let us begin with Adair’s…Continue

The following comment amongst others was left on my article Letter to Robert O. Adair. I don’t feel it is necessary to refute them all as they all seem to follow the same general malaise.
“Van Noir, I repeat, you cannot refute the Cosmological argument nor can you make a case for the ontological significance of logic. Dismissal and denial are logical fallacies. You should…

So I went into a creationist DeviantArt group to see if they had any good arguments to hold up their silliness...and of course, they didn't.
I went in respectful; I was honestly just trying to see what their argument was for why they don't think evolution works, and why they think dinos coexisted with people...because I can't even make that leap of logic.
I got shut down pretty quickly by the leader of the group, who insisted that I was a troll for disagreeing with them…
first off, last week we re-launched the Think Atheist Radio Show podcast. it was an incredible success. we had a ton of listeners tune in live to hear Greg play his interview with John Loftus. and to our surprise, John even called into the show live in between the recorded portions of the interview during which Greg was taking calls. as if that wasn't enough John popped into chat to say hi to the crew chatting there! and in addition to the ton of live listeners the show has since had a ton…Continue
I've been coming across more and more people who seem to buy into the scam of Creationism. I'm sure everyone will agree that it is NOT science and cannot/should not be used to teach history lessons. I mean, Xenu did throw billions of humans into the great volcano 75 million years ago. So, then why isn't Scientology used in museums? It is because it is a story written in around the 1950's by a MAN. Christianity was written 2000 years ago by MEN. I just don't understand Creationists reasoning…Continue
