The Death of Expertise

Started this discussion. Last reply by k.h. ky Jan 25. 8 Replies

An article was posted on another site I frequent, where I'm the only vocal atheist on that site. In reading it, I couldn't help but think about organized religion, and how many people claim to be religious, even though their occupation involves many…Continue

About DPL ... don't worry if that sounds foreign, it's an acronym I made up

Started this discussion. Last reply by booklover Mar 28, 2013. 4 Replies

I think it is important to consider that religiosity, similar to human sexuality, is a function of two variables – genetics and religious environment. I have a theory regarding a human genetic “potential” for accepting the god concept, which in turn…Continue

Hmmm - Has anyone here noticed ...

I used to participate in another very popular forum, which I no longer care to join in anymore for various reasons, mainly because they changed their format to something hideous and tiresome to deal with.  Apparently I'm not the only one, because I…Continue

What happened to Kalliope?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Luara Jan 15, 2013. 8 Replies

Anyone know what happened to Kalliope Worter? I noticed that he mysteriously dropped off of my friends list a while back. It was soon after I had linked an article in a comment to him about another Egyptian citizen who was arrested for making…Continue

The Farce of Heaven

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mathew T. Mar 2, 2013. 75 Replies

Why is it that religionists accept the concept of heaven without thinking it through to its logical conclusions?  To them, that is what this world is all about.  Live your life within the guidelines of morality, as dictated by a book that could not…Continue

Future replied to Two Cult Survivor's discussion Need advice on coming out to my spouse
"I hope it works out for you. If you haven't read it yet, I would emphatically suggest Sam Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation. It's full of logic that is hard to deny."
Future replied to Two Cult Survivor's discussion Need advice on coming out to my spouse
"If you are a believer, then doctrine says that the god of Abraham is a punisher. I would focus on questioning why those who blatantly deny him are not being punished, as well as why so many sinful Christians are being rewarded instead of punished.…"
Future replied to Two Cult Survivor's discussion Need advice on coming out to my spouse
"If a Christian god were monitoring Christians' behaviors and allowing for bad luck to befall those who it took issue with, wouldn't every practitioner of every non-Christian religion be suffering a far worse fate? There's a whole…"
Future replied to Gene Sokolowski's discussion ALL Politicians Should Be Made to Read: "Homosexuality, atheism etc: What's it to you?"
"It's a very rational essay. I wish rationality actually meant something to religionists. Unfortunately, the more rational that side of the debate gets, the more irrationally obstinate the other side gets. Regarding the whole procreation thing,…"
Future replied to Luara's discussion Meet Brother Richard
"My parents are the only white people at their church. Long story, but they left their all white church in suburbia to follow a minister who has being banished from there to the other side on the tracks - basically for not sucking up to the highest…"
Future replied to Luara's discussion Meet Brother Richard
"I was never a believer, but I was forced to go to church weekly in my formative years. I absolutely hated it - every aspect of it, whether it was church service, Sunday school, choir practice, youth group retreats, special events, weddings or…"
Future commented on Mike Mitchell's blog post Why You Shouldn’t Announce Your Atheism
"Making an unprovoked spectacle of your atheism isn't wise, but stepping into the ring where religion is being flaunted is imperative, particularly if you are well spoken and prepared. Armed with the right language, you are basically shooting…"
Future replied to Bridger Smith's discussion What are your favorite songs that align with your views?
"Dear God by XTC. Probably the best reflection of atheism ever put on wax."
Future commented on Bryan McDowell's blog post Proving a Negative
"Anthony, that is a pretty brilliant observation. I'll have to remember that."
Future commented on Bryan McDowell's blog post Proving a Negative
"You cannot prove that god doesn't exist, just like you cannot prove that god isn't the devil in disguise. You can, however, stand in the middle of a crowd and scream "god is a worthless motherfucker!", just to prove how powerless…"
Future replied to matthew greenberg's discussion THIS...because of Christianity
"The WW2 memorial is an impressive and massive work of art. It blows my mind that someone would focus on such a meaningless feature, whether there was an omission or not, and feel compelled to rant about it. As satisfying as it is to me that the god…"
"Since the dawning of humanity, religion has been an endless attempt to gather the most people to a cause. Old religions die, or become insignificant, when their members are stripped away by the promises of a competing religion, or the due to the…"

"My initial reaction to this article was to not comment, since I find free will to be such a farce of a concept to begin with. It's a nonsense term IMO. I exercised my ability to make a decision contrary to my instincts (ie free will) just by…"

Future commented on Loren Miller's blog post The Unbelievers - My Experience
"We do have the evidence that something can indeed come from nothing. Unfortunately, it's a very meager form of proof in that the tiny mass blinks into and out of existence over milliseconds of time. But it does happen, and according to Krauss…"

Future commented on Loren Miller's blog post The Unbelievers - My Experience
"That's about where I tend to end up as well, but it just leads to "see, you admit that there was something there all along - so where did that something come from?" I then just emphasize how in a space where mass was absent, mass…"

Future commented on Loren Miller's blog post The Unbelievers - My Experience
"I assume that there was some discussion on the science of 'something from nothing'. Krauss's book on the matter is excellent. Unfortunately, when it comes to intelligently summarizing it's contents to those believers who cannot…"

I doubt if I ever reread Anna, but I might try War and Peace again, although after reading the bio of Tolstoy, I'm thinking not. Both are rather tedious and could using considerable editing!

I've used Craigslist, but don't feel comfortable with it for some reason. Guess I like to actually see and touch something before buying it. I even tried to sell my truck on CL. (No takers--I live out in the boondocks.)

Regarding your comment left on my "newspaper demise" post: despite early failed attempts to get the local news off the internet, for some reason, I now  have full access. Perusing the headlines, my original suspicions are confirmed--the printed version is a waste of paper and money (mine). Free is good!

Hey Future! How are you today? I wanted to thank you for replying to my discussion. I appreciate your thoughts.

Well, wish you the best.

I liked it (your poem)!

As to "Alonzo Archimedes Future," I refer you to Gregory Peck's opus, Capt. Newman, MD, which featured Eddie Albert as the above-mentioned Mr. Future, though Albert's character was more conventionally known as Army Col. Norval Algate Bliss.

An odd flick here and there, but worth your time.

Your comments on my post are much appreciated. I've decided I'm not going to jump into the deep end of philosophical analysis of  the subject(s). "Shallow Hal" is my mantra!

Vogon Poem Generator.  Make sure your hands are tied when using, so you don't bite off your fingers.

Hi Future
Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where the application of pure common sense has proved to be enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers.
