"Nobody can say with absolute certainty that no god or gods exist. To make that claim you would have to produce evidence. This would be the same evidence we want the theists to produce, but they just do not get it. They answer you back from them…"

"Michael, I have to disagree with you on this one. Sorry. I'm not understanding this discussion. You either believe in god or you do not. The entire position of agnosticism, and there’re many varieties from strong to weak, claims there…"

"Hi Napolean, yes, the book is very academic and not at all for a general readership, so you probably would not enjoy it (except, perhaps for the introduction and conclusion). However, my other book on "Theology after the Birth of God"…"

"Thank you for your reply which I have read together with your blog. I don't make sense of your third sentence, can't find your word 'bio-cultural' in the Oxford dictionary and while Gods are borne in human culture, I…"

"Hi Michael, yes, I agree and I do not believe in the supernatural or gods. Most people do believe in them, I argue, because of evolved cognitive and coalitional tendencies that lead to over-dectecting agents in the natural world and over-protecting…"

"The idea is that atheism (belief in no gods and no God) was made possible, in a sense, by the emergence of theism itself Do you mean "strong atheism" or simply the lack of belief in supernatural entities?  People have been religious…"

"Hi Luara, yes, I think it has poetic force too. The idea is that atheism (belief in no gods and no God) was made possible, in a sense, by the emergence of theism itself in the wake of what is called the "axial age" (800-200 BCE). The…"

Michael Penn commented on LeRon Shults's blog post New book on Atheism

I have just published a book that discusses religion and atheism in light of the bio-cultural sciences, and in dialogue with the philosopher Gilles Deleuze. It is called Iconoclastic Theology: Gilles Deleuze and the Secretion of Atheism. For more details, see…
