Out Of The Randomness

One argument that I tackled in an earlier post was the fine tuning argument. I thought about it for a while, and I thought of one of my interests: Astronomy. I realized that there are thousands of galaxies and millions of stars and planets out there. So are we really "fine tuned"? Why us and not any one of the other millions of planets? Why haven't we found life on other planets? For those of you who do not know much about cosmology or astronomy there is a certain Goldilocks zone that a…

Do people truly believe in satan and hell? Doesn't seem so...

I don't think many people believe in the devil. They'll go on and on and on about how great god is and how awesome heaven is going to be, but do they truly believe in hell? I don't think so.



You hear a story about a son coming out to his parents, either as gay or as an atheist. What's the first conclusion you're going to draw from the story before he gets into it? Probably that the parents cut off ties with them/want nothing to do with their son anymore.



Think about it.…

An ode to my uncle (The big brother I never had)

This is more just for me, but I was filling out my profile and explaining what my catalyst for question religion was so here it goes. It's nothing extensive but it's something that I've been meaning to write down for years but never go to. I hope to eventually expand upon this but due a falling out with that side of that family I am pretty devoid of further information other than my memories.

 

At the age of eight my Uncle then aged 24 was diagnosed with cancer. He wasn't just…

Atheism vs. Agnosticism

I know, I know. The title is a bit misleading.


But lately, I've been seeing a growing trend of digging an imaginary trench between so-called atheists and so-called agnostics. What many people don't realize is that more often than not, they are one and the same.


We need to define both terms first. Theism and atheism are about belief vs. non-belief. Non-belief in a deity does not imply a belief in the non-existence of said…

The suspension of disbelief and vegetable cults.

Back when I was in middle school the question of my religion came up a lot. It was odd 'cause other students rarely talked to me and vice versa. I was wary of admitting I was an atheist given how mean kids can be, but I wouldn't deny it. I personally wanted to tell them to mind their own business. But that only worked when I managed to hurt their feelings. Which wasn't really my intention.



So I compromised. I wouldn't tell them I was an atheist and I'd wouldn't tell them to leave me…
