Eric Tawney replied to Steph S.'s discussion How do you respond to: "Are you against religion?", "Are you against Christmas?"
"Steph, I have NO problem expressing my disdain for religion. I usually clarify my disdain for Christmas by citing all the nonsense that occurs around this time of year: people who will wait in line (sometimes for days) to get a bargain while that…"

Eric Tawney replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Former Muslims?
"Kalliope, the change you mention is great, but this progress still leaves the religion as a majorly repressive cult compared to modernity and to other religions. While I agree that Islam has come a long way, it is still stuck in the iron age. Even…"

A. R. replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"Eric, I have taken my atheism to the level of anti-theism. However, I am not trying to be "evangelical". I only engage in arguments with religious people if they make the first attempt to debate; to me, this is an opening to say what I…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
""It" hasn't done anything, it is not something that can act. Religion is just like a gun, knife, or other tool. People use it to justify all sorts of idiotic and vacuous things, but that is more a reflection on the human race than…"

Eric Tawney replied to Future's discussion the mind
"Future, welcome to Atheist Nexus!  I think that we will indeed one day be able to create a completely synthetic life form. (The bigger question is should we? But that is a wholely different conversation).   I think our knowlege of how the…"

Eric Tawney replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"Travis, I like your statement about crumbling outhouses. This is how I feel about religion and I agree that religion does some good. Religion does charitable work and helps people in need. I content that all the good that religion does or portends,…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"I cannot say that I believe religion to be wholly evil, but I do believe it to be unhealthy from a psychological and mental viewpoint. I can't comment on whether gods are evil or not, because I do not they even exist to be so. So I doubt I will…"

Eric Tawney replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Former Muslims?
"Madhukar, I'm an optimistic person in general and hope that visions of reality set in on the world, especially the Muslim world. To me this culture seems most recalcitrant. Perhaps it also the most violent, especially concerning apostasy.…"

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Former Muslims?
" 24th of June 2037, barely 25 years since now. I do not know the reason for your optimism but I feel that there will be very little change in Muslim world in such a short time. This would be possible only if  a strong liberal…"

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Former Muslims?
"I always say that Muslim religion is difficult to live in and even more difficult to leave. The Quran prescribes death penalty for a muslim deserter. Despite this, there are more muslim atheists than we notice. Every society has closeted atheists…"

Eric Tawney replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"Asa, great suggestion. I have used this in conversations, but it often invokes a "why not?" or "oh really? I'm feel sorry for you.." Which is so very condescending and disrespectful. The arrogance of believers like this is…"

Mike Hungerford replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"Yes, I'm anti-theistic, as well as atheistic. Though I'm not necessarily always anti-theist. Depends on the Individual."

Mike Hungerford replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"Quote, from Steph S.: "I could not agree with your statement more Ruth. Sweeping generalizations are never factual." *** That generalities do not extend to all individuals Steph, does not invalidate those generalities. Especially when…"

Asa Watcher replied to Eric Tawney's discussion Atheism v. Anti-Theism
"When engaged with a theist in any religious discussion, the most anti-theist comment you can make, the most devastating statement, the most accurate shot at the very essence of the theist’s world, is a simple, and irrefutable statement you…"

Greetings, Eric! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since June. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
