Our Minds on the Scientific Method

certainty (Via XKCD)

Certainty is born of our best traits and sustained by the worst. Curiosity and wonder are the building blocks of all knowledge. When we learn about our world, our lives are enriched and the worth of our existence grows exponentially. We find meaning in the madness and it makes life worth living.

The mere…

just a question

so at a recent party,  I was listening in on a conversation that my Christian friend and some of his christian friends were talking about how people can believe that there is not god? I as a in-the-closet-atheist. didn't say anything but his friend said "Where does moral thought come from?" and i was pondering that idea that our thought can bring moral actions and moral judgement. If there is a god than he would give Humanity moral thought? i dont know this question is hard for me to come up…

Thought Experiment - What if God appeared

My brother, an atheist like me, posed to me this humorous thought experiment, and I thought it was worth playing the game and posting it here:

 

God - the bearded white guy who looks a lot like me (he wears more robes than I do) - turns up on Earth, having decided to prove his omnipotence once and for all.

He turns up everywhere you go, in all your recent photos, and in all the morning…

How Your Atheism Helps Make Your Other Decisions

It is safe to assume that most people are not born Atheists.*  

 

While it is a truism that people are born without religion, one can only really claim that people are born Agnostics. Many of us would have said at some point that we believed in God, but how did we…

Label atheism a thought crime

Why in the name of God (oops sorry, didn't mean to be so insensitive/offensive), does RTE give an entire 'Liveline' over to a tiny rump of deranged atheists to spout their puerile propaganda? Just what is their gripe?

Well it turns out they are annoyed at the prospect that proposed legislation will make it an offence to gratuitously offend religion: in reality, Catholicism (their big bogeyman). The big question is, though, what kind of ideology gets it…

The "We Say So" factor of Religions and Beliefs

I’m constantly amazed by the “flexibility” of “religion.”

If you’re a homosexual then certain charity or faith based charity medical will deny you medical help.

I’m sure “Christ” asked before he laid his hands on people what their sexual persuasion was.

And that “Gays” and “Lesbians” can’t go to heaven. I was under the impression that there was some guy with a book at the front of heaven that directed you where to go.

Silly… Continue

Ethics, not Morals

One of the questions that atheists are often asked is how a set of morals are established without having them handed to them from ancient, desert-wandering, superstituous tribes. (There's a similar thread on Think Athiest in the forums here.)



I address this issue by first admiting that, as an atheist, I have no moral standards--I have an ethical standard… Continue

Either Or

(( A re-post of a blog entry I posted elsewhere a while back ))



Yesterday, a couple of co-workers were talking about current events, and one of them said ‘Well, there are two sides to every story, and I’ll listen to them both.’



This got me thinking of the assumptions inherent in such a statement, and the fallacies that can and often do appear in such discussions.



The first and most obvious potential fallacy is right in the statement itself. Two sides. Either-or.… Continue
