Evalutation Christianity / Science ; a myspace repost

This is a three part tool to evaluate belief

systems. It is not the only way to do it, nor the best way...but a

better evaluation tool would include these categories and others...



1. Assumptions / Beliefs / Dogmas

2. Relationship to Evidence

3. Methodologies



Christianity verses Science



Assumptions of Christianity: Triune Dogma of God, Triune Dogma of the Bible,

Punishment / Reward in the Afterlife...

God is an Omniscient,… Continue

China's Charter 08

Translated from the Chinese by Perry Link



The document below, signed by more than two thousand Chinese citizens, was conceived and written in conscious admiration of the founding of Charter 77 in Czechoslovakia, where, in January 1977, more than two hundred Czech and Slovak intellectuals formed… Continue

Evidence First

Evidence precedes Dogma



No idea is permanent



No idea is necessary



All ideas are in flux as new evidence and new ways of thinking arise



I believe in evolution. I do this knowing the evidence for and even the "evidence" against. Contrary to popular opinion I have the ability to change my mind if I were presented with true evidence.

Gate of the Sophist

Why the Atheist doesn't exist

Our Dogmas, Their Dogmas

We Atheists have no dogma that I am aware of, beyond the definition of atheist... Of course, "atheist" is a self label and can neither be officially forced onto another nor branded...no matter what the Communist Party, or Christians think.





Besides the numerous theologies found within the Bible, over which denominations form and fragment, there are at least two semi-external dogmas...

The Triune Dogma of God and the Triune Dogma of the Bible.



"God is omniscient,… Continue
