Salty Water = Proof for Creationism?

I recently started teaching at a small home school. I had no idea what I was getting into until I started teaching "Biology" <--- note the quotations! I opened up the book expecting to find hard facts and good lessons but instead it started off by saying how all animals were created on the 5th day. *Cue immediate facepalm* Now I'm supposed to read this to my class, which took some hard effort and displacement of my consciousness. I felt like such a fraud!

But THEN I came across a…

What determines that you have won the debate?

I pose this question, since I have watched many of William Lane Craig's great academy award winning performances. I have heard many atheist say that he has won most of the debates against atheist, but I have always come to the conclusion that he has not provided anything with substance. He uses the same old arguments that are known not to be very strong. Therefore from my point of view he lost. I think a person wins a debate if their claims are true, if they provide evidence, and if the…

A new email conversation I'm having with a YouTube acquaintance...

(If you want to suggest things maybe I should say to this girl after reading the whole long conversation so far, let me know. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.)

 

The girl (I'm assuming a girl, because she found me through this new video of mine:

Oh c'mon!

You can't be mad the little rascal, he's so adorable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But seriously, what were those Theists thinking?

That wise and highly educated man calculated the date of the rapture, when we will all meet Cheesus Christ.

You see atheists everyday but you might not know it.

Watching "Hoarders", I noticed that the women's son had a particular demeanor. Unlike his (unsympathetic) mother, he was very polite, well spoken & and had an understanding of his mother's mental illness. You could also tell that he had accepted, what had become of her. For some odd reason, the thought popped into my head, "I wonder how many times you see an atheist on tv or on the streets and you don't even know it!" A few minutes later, I spotted something on the man's shirt. Could it…

Misconceptions and Misunderstandings: The Perspective of a Peace Keeper

I believe that the reason atheists and theists are unable to get along and agree on simple matters doesn't come from the belief (or non belief) of some higher being, but because of the misconceptions of every religion about one another.  Because of so many stereotypes and misunderstandings in this world, today, it's nearly impossible to learn about a characteristic or fact about somebody and not judge them because of some stereotype one has previously heard.  This doesn't even apply just to…

My Response to, "I'll Pray for You"

The "I'll Pray for You" is the ultimate conversation ender, or useless phrase thrown in which can be used in a variety of variations: goodbye, you're a fool, oh you're sick that's so sad but I'm not going to do anything of value, (while struggling with demon inside the collar of your shirt) you're... threatening... me... with reason... and I need... a way... out, you're going to war and i'm your honey. It pisses me off. They use it for everything and then what is a normal non-believer…

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…

Drama from an Abandoned Blog

I started a blog last fall, Agnostic Innocence, which lately I have grown rather disenchanted with. To make a long story short, I started the blog specifically with the intent to better understand my own position on different topics; it was really an exercise in my own introspection that I published on the internet in order to force myself to adhere to the writing standards of the public sphere. At the time I began (and named) the blog, I was technically an atheist in that I did not… Continue

Responsibility, the lost virtue.

OK, so my bosses are horrible parents, and a while back they were talking about the fact that they will be going of of birth control for a few months and see what happens before he gets snipped (two kids too late). But then my one boss was saying that they were going to just see what happens. "If god means for us to have another child, that's okay. If not, that's fine too." Um these idiots were having money troubles already. Yet they want to chance another kid on the mantle of 'gods will'?… Continue
