The Unanswerable

Started this discussion. Last reply by Daniel W (Sentient Biped) Jul 27. 8 Replies

This subject has been spoken of before. But I would like to revisit it. What we know today as Epicurus' Riddle: "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able,…Continue

Armageddon

This is my own opinion, and should in no way be taken as a prediction or prophecy, as I am an atheist. There will be an Armageddon, and it will be what it has been traditionally viewed as in…Continue

"On typos Daniel, sometimes I do a copy/paste, make corrections, hit the X button, and then re-post so it looks and sounds better. Other times I forget (like Tony's blog is about) and my lack of clear memory just has me post it anyway.  :)"

Human Memory Notoriously Unreliable

If Jesus of Nazareth ever even really existed, it is highly unlikely that anything written about him in the New Testament Gospels is true and accurate.The Gospels, beginning with Mark, were first written about half a century or more after Jesus allegedly lived and died. Until then several different versions of his life story and deeds were passed down by word of mouth, most of them wildly discrepant with tales of Jesus nearly unrecognizable from the accounts that have become the Gospels of the…See More

Everything And Its Opposite

Michel Onfray, in his scathing book deconstructing the three Abrahamic monotheisms, "Atheist Manifesto", makes an incisive and pertinent observation about the Tanakh, Old Testament, New Testament, and the Koran. He says:"The Old Testament boasts a total of three thousand five hundred pages, the New nine hundred, the Koran seven hundred and fifty,that is, a little more than five thousand pages in which 'everything and its opposite' is said once and for all".Onfrays observation is true. The Old…See More

Who Are We To Thank If We Believe The Bible

Job 2:9-10. "Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity ? Curse God, and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What ? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil ? In all this did not Job sin with his lips".

Proverbs 16:4. "The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil".

Philosophical Atheism (To the newest proselytizer to visit our page, from me. CW Brown), Courtesy of CW Brown, FaceBook Philosophical Atheism

Philosophical Atheism Before you go back and preach to your friends and saying I am an angry atheist. Think about it for a second. Many atheists like myself are not angry at God (because he probably does not exist), but [we are angry] at people like yourself for constantly shoving something down our throats that is without proper foundations, without the proper evidence. Many of us are very well educated and have looked into your…

What Would Be the Nature and Qualities of a Universe Designed By A Perfect Being ?

Posted on February 7, 2014 at 8:00pm 7 Comments

http://tonyjordan37814.blogspot.com/

One thing that every Christian regardless of whether they are fundamentalist, moderate, or liberal, believes, is that the universe and everything in it, including the earth and all living on it, is the product of design by a perfect being (God).

Jews and Muslims share this belief also to a greater or lesser degree. What, however, would be the nature and…
