"I also grew up in a religious environment and I know how hard it was to get away from it which makes it all the more impressive that you did. Kudos and welcome to A/N"

"The whole point is to understand the religion more. If people are criticizing it, he'll act as an apologist and vice-versa if people are trying to convey the religion's points. The goal isn't take make people believe it. Right now…"

"Pretend like the religion is true. You need no facts, only your feelings which are personal proof directly from the god of your chosen religion (personal revelation). Then challenge anyone to disprove that your feelings are genuine. (It displaces…"

"We're acting as apologists for ancient religions, not judeo-christian religions. I find it to be an interesting challenge. I don't intend on getting my professor fired, I'm trying to figure out how to intelligently defend something…"

How to be a religious apologist

In discussions in my philosophy class, we are sometimes encouraged to take on the role of apologist for various religions. I find it quite difficult as I haven't encountered any form of debate from an apologist that wasn't evasive and vague to the point of irritating me and I certainly don't want to be vague, evasive, and irritating. Any ideas? Have you guys ran into any somewhat formidable arguments (regardless of the religion)?

James commented on Sarah Trachtenberg's blog post OK, but do we deserve to be hated?
"I'm not talking about an individual or small amount of people even, I'm talking about an entire group. Of course I wouldn't hate all schizos because one thinks I'm a spook. It kinda ties into a discussion we had in Philosophy…"

James commented on Sarah Trachtenberg's blog post OK, but do we deserve to be hated?
"I don't think it's possible to be hated almost by an entire group and not have some negative feelings toward that group."

I've been at the pool a lot myself. Course I'm usually chasing a 3 year old around it, so not quite as relaxing :p You're the only other A/N I know in Tampa - we should hang out sometime

Hi.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends.

Join groups when you can, like the busy discussion group “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ) with its 120 discussions and numerous video films.

One discussion (over 65 posts) is called "Proud to be Atheist". There's much to be proud about because atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground in contrast to the irrational, superstitious god believers and their pathetic fictions and nonsense.
