Ground Zero Cross case

The symbolic Ground Zero cross WILL STAY at the 9/11 Memorial Museum as atheists' lose their case! In the ruling the judge said, “The stated purpose of displaying The Cross at Ground Zero to tell the story of how some people used faith to cope with the tragedy is genuine and an objective observer would understand the purpose of the display to be secular.” Ummm...

About Me:
I was raised as a fundamentalist christian (First Church of the Nazarene) and broke away from religion after doing an in depth study of the Bible and various science subjects. I am an active blogger on weareatheism and a published author.

My Book

"Tools for Debating Atheism" just released. Handy information for atheists that often have conversations with theists. I explain the logical fallacies often heard in theist arguments, some good science in layman's terms, apologetics, solipsism and much more.

A Good Response to Fine Tuning Nonsense

Posted on April 7, 2015 at 8:30am 16 Comments

Many fine tuning arguments rely on some vague assessment of beauty and purpose to justify, in their minds, the proposal for a magical invisible creator transcendent-mind genie. They also make baseless claims of probability when we have exactly 1 universe to assess and as such lack a denomenator with which to calculate universal probabilities. 

They mock us as cold and empty for not being so awed by pretty or…

How Bad can one set of verses be?

Posted on March 9, 2015 at 3:30am 5 Comments

As I still study the Bible to be always ready to give the reason for the lack of faith I have, I came across the following passage. This is some really weird crap.

Exodus 4:18-26

So Moses went back home to Jethro, his father-in-law. “Please let me return to my relatives in Egypt,” Moses said. “I don’t even know if they are still alive.”

“Go in peace,” Jethro replied.



Before Moses left Midian, the Lord said to him, “Return to Egypt,…

What would make a good atheist show?

Posted on January 10, 2015 at 1:59am 5 Comments

I am finally at a place where I am ready to start my own channel on youtube, having completed my book "Tools for Debating Atheism" and having worked out promotions for that book. As such I am looking for opinions of my target audience, atheists. 

There are TONS of pro-atheism shows online. What would make a unique experience? 

I would love to have discussions and debates with theists. I am more than prepared to get into some deep apologetics and pick apart their…

Hi Gregory! Welcome to Atheist Nexus and the Origins group.

I saw your post to the discussion I started about some people being indifferent to music and I very much share your love for music. I have it in my bones. What kind do you compose? (I have composed some also - only melody - and I am wondering if there is an overlap in our tastes.)

Also, since you have published there is a group called Atheist Writers that you might want to join. You can check it out at:

http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/atheistwriters 

I too have done a little writing. I wrote a very logical and succinct disproof of the Biblical god concept that was published by the Science and Rationalists Association of India. Not only are all of the premises self-evident but it is founded in human limitations rather than having the weakness of depending on the proposition that there is something a god can't do. It is almost solipsistic. If you think it is valid feel free to use it provided of course that you give appropriate credit. I have a copyright on it and It is located at:

http://www.srai.org/the-biblical-god-concept-nullified/

 

Please get back to me about your music. Welcome again and I hope you enjoy the site.
