"Thanks for the comments. We are able to see the gaping holes in 'faith based arguements' so why can't believers? Have the churches/mosques got them that brainwashed or is it some kind of human disposition and we are the 'Tomorrow…"

"The thing that bugs me most about this, is that it is routinely referred to as the teleological 'argument'. It's not actually an argument of course (at least not in the logical sense, which the ontological and transcendental arguments…"

"The design argument is counter intuitive since before you say it's the work of a supernatural being you have to rule out design by natural means, including natural selection the "blind watchmaker". Also, once you say it's the…"

Does God Exist? Let's take the design view.

Posted on June 27, 2010 at 5:48am 7 Comments

Someone asked on my local forum, "Does God exist and if so, where is the proof? This was my response. View the thread here.



One only has to look at all the beautiful plants and trees to know that this couldn't have just happened. It needed intelligent design. What about an eye? How could that have just appeared? If a tornado hit a car breakers, it wouldn't leave an 'E Type' in its wake.…

Jesus is letting down his flock.

Posted on June 27, 2010 at 5:36am 0 Comments

If someone was brought up in a controlled environment where information was filtered and they were given zero information about god, how would their belief/value system evolve?



Does god have a way of communicating with people or has he devolved the spiritual continuence on the parents of the child to bring said child up in said faith? Isn't that a little lazy of him?



I wonder how many children who are brought up in faith A, sudenly denounce it and adopt faith B? The lack of… Continue

The danger of Islam over other religions

Posted on April 16, 2010 at 3:10pm 5 Comments

Faith schools and religious segregation are allowed and encouraged by this government and Madrasses are being set up all over the place. I have learned about fundie christian… Continue

Some people need Faith at any cost

Posted on April 16, 2010 at 2:53pm 1 Comment

I had some Jehovas Witnesses call round a few days ago. There is a mission a couple of streets away. The conversation ended a draw but I think I had more of the ball. It was interesting to argue religion in real time for a change.



The bottom line finally arrived at was that they needed to believe in some higher power because without that, their life would have no meaning or purpose. So they choose to hang on to a belief because their reality could not exist without it. A friend of my… Continue

Hello Philip, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where (like you) we recognise that God and gods are all phoney and religions are frauds used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more, especially by muslims and christians.
