Filbert Lam replied to Kaila G's discussion The reason why I turned to atheism. in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Unlike other "turned" atheists, I wasn't raised in a very religious family. When I was young, I went to a Catholic school where I was forced to attend mass every first week of the month. For six years when I was in that school, I…"

Filbert Lam replied to Prefer Not to Say's discussion A question to ex-believers
"I haven't read any of the other comments here yet, so if I repeat any points then I apologise. First, I think that the universe isn't 4-5 billion years old, but somewhere between 13.5-14 billion years old. But, in all fairness, let's…"

Filbert Lam replied to Ethan Lemmon's discussion Forced prayer in work
"What the CEO did was absolutely repulsive. There is no way anyone can justify forcing someone else to accept their own religious faith and its associated practices. Furthermore, to say that one needs to accept God in order to be successful or,…"

Filbert Lam replied to Stephanie Blizzard's discussion Any recommended reading?
"Well, I wouldn't call Craig a charlatan. However, I don't have much patience or respect for him as a philosopher. His debates are mostly scripted, which proves to be very weak against the more "unorthodox" atheists he…"

Filbert Lam replied to Stephanie Blizzard's discussion Any recommended reading?
"Well, I have read God is Not Great by Hitchens and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. Hitchens' book is good while Dawkins' is OK. The worst sections of Dawkins' book is the sections where he discusses the arguments for…"

"Yes, I think Dan Barker is one of the more intelligent public atheists around."

Filbert Lam replied to David Raphael's discussion LIST: Immoralities in the New Testament
"Yes. Which is the essential point that theists have a hard time grappling with in the evidential form of the Problem of Evil argument. Furthermore, I also think that the idea of free will would be incompatible with God's supposed…"

Filbert Lam replied to David Raphael's discussion LIST: Immoralities in the New Testament
"No worries! In fact, I think the evidential Problem of Evil gives strong evidence to suggest that every time anyone says anything along the lines of "God is great", that is immoral because it would ignore the fact that if God is indeed…"

Filbert Lam replied to David Raphael's discussion LIST: Immoralities in the New Testament

Filbert Lam replied to Jezzy's discussion Is Atheism A Choice?
"Etymologically speaking, there is a distinction between "knowledge" and "belief" to the extent that "knowledge" can be seen as either a "subset" of "belief" or a more extreme form of the latter.…"

Filbert Lam replied to Jezzy's discussion Is Atheism A Choice?
""it appears you view agnosticism and atheism as two points on the same continuum, with atheism being the more extreme position and agnosticism being more moderate." Yes, that is indeed what I view agnosticism and atheism as. So you're…"

Filbert Lam replied to Jezzy's discussion Is Atheism A Choice?
"Personally, I was not raised Catholic but became one when I attended a Catholic school very early on. However, in my late teens, I turned atheist after learning about philosophy. My transition to atheism started after I watched Christopher Hitchens…"

Filbert Lam replied to Sassan K.'s discussion WHAT DID HITCH MEAN FOR YOU?
"Hitchens was a prolific atheist, an astute writer and an intelligent man. However, to describe him as such, most will agree, are mere euphemisms. As many have rightly said, Hitchens is the Johnny Walker Black of atheists, except no substitutes.…"
