"Anti-Theism is not inherently intolerant towards all religion. Intolerance towards religion is a property shared by many anti-theists, so I can understand your confusion. In the secular context, being an anti-theist means you oppose the belief in a…"

Chris Ruegg replied to Daniel W's discussion If Only White Men Had Voted...
"With Romney as the Republican candidate, I could believe that. If I were in the U.S., I probably wouldn't have voted for either Romney or Obama. I'm not particularly fond of either ones politics."

Chris Ruegg replied to Hiram's discussion Ayn Rand's Objective Ethics

Chris Ruegg replied to AgeOfAtheists14's discussion "Why -oh why- do atheists (@ times lapsed believer$) hate god"? WHY DO THEEEEEY!?!?!? ; ) answer here:
"I don't hate god because I can't hate that which I do not believe exists; however, if god did exist, I would hate him because he is petty, vain, jealous, vengeful and downright evil. I would hate him because I am better than him. Not…"

Chris Ruegg replied to Jedi Wanderer's discussion How do you answer the argument that god exists from the supposed perfection of the universe?
"Perfect, in what way? The observation that life/the universe exists is only indicative of those things alone. What would a universe look like that does not contain a God, and how do you get from "a God exists" to "a Christian God…"
