"This is an old thread, and I don't know if anyone is watching it anymore, but here is Christopher Hitchens talking about this exact issue. The link is to the video at 22:04, though the entire interview is well worth watching. At the time,…"

Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More

Matt Skaggs replied to Shane Starr's discussion Mass Effect 3 (spoilers) in the group Godless Gamers
"I think the original endings had (at least) one critical flaw. If I remember correctly, even the best endings resulted it the destruction of the relays. (If I'm wrong here, someone please correct me.) The inevitable conclusion of that is…"

"Angela, I did not mean to cause offense by this post. I found humor in this because of the intrinsic irony of the ad's placement, not because I don't think relationships formed over the Internet can be lasting. I know that they can be.…"

"Brandi, I met my husband on the internet 13 years ago. Your blanket statement that most internet relationships don't last offends me. We have a wonderful marriage as do two other couples we know who met similarly."

How Does Religion Inspire such Tenacious Dedication?

Posted on May 1, 2013 at 1:30am 2 Comments

Recently I spoke with a theologian who holds a young-earth creationist viewpoint, and I was struck by his illogical dedication to his beliefs. It was apparent that he was not unintelligent: our conversation touched on a great variety of topics, including quantum physics, the origin of the universe, and modern astrophysical theories.
