Faith, Reason, and other mutually exclusive terms

It never ceases to amaze me how much believers want to convince me that they are not “blind followers”, that they have come to their religious beliefs through reason, just like me.  No, I’m not going to refute the claim that atheism is a religion here.  That will have to be another blog.  What I want to address here is that people want me to believe that they have used reason, not “blind faith”, to come to religion.  They say that they use logic and find Christ. Now, I should start by defining…See More

The Know-it-all Atheist

 Every so often, someone will tell me that atheists are impossible to debate, because they think they know it all.  Someone will tell me that I am dismissing their claims before I have even heard them.  They accuse me of shutting out the “evidence” they have to “prove” god’s existence.  They say I am doing what I accuse them of doing:  sticking fingers in the ears and screaming, “La-La-la! Can’t hear you!”Well, they may have a point.  I guess.The truth is I’m not really doing this.  I’m not…See More

An atheist’s profession of faith

An atheist’s profession of faithSomeone once asked what I did believe in if I did not believe in god.  This was my response.I believe in freedom. I believe that choice is the backbone of freedom. As choice expands, so does freedom; as choice contracts, so does freedom. I believe the freedoms granted to Americans in the Constitution are awesome.I believe in liberty, justice and equality for all. I believe these belong to everyone regardless of race, creed, color, national origin or sexual…See More

The Afterlife is an illusion

I was listening to a debate between Dan Barker and Dinesh D’Souza.  They eventually got to the afterlife as D’Souza has recently written a book about it.  D’Souza explained his evidence for the afterlife as follows:  There are thousands of people who have experienced a Near Death Experience, or NDE.  Where are they?  They are walking around, driving cars, going to work, etc.  If the mind is producing hallucinations at the time of death, how did the brain reverse this death process?  How can you…See More

Hi and welcome.

Here is a question for you. Maybe you heard it. I heard it on the reasonable doubts podcast.
If god is perfect and thus everything was perfect before god created the universe then why did god create the universe? If you change perfection doesn't that make imperfection? That leads to the question why does god needs us?

Welcome to the group. I am sure you will find freethinking persons in the Terre Haute area.
