""Hey, let's make some ideologues!" No. Not "no thanks"; just "no". Ideologues are the opposite of thinking and the opposite of good."

"Good ideas, Prytanis. Having studied Memetics and the anthropology/neuroscience/psychology of religious belief, I want to make sure we understand that the power of religious belief in humans is deep seated. One example is that in human development…"

"I don't think you can create a worldwide movement around an idea that's based on a negative. The term atheist is kind of negative sounding even if it isn't literally negative. A viral meme needs to supercede all other memes in a way…"

"Trouble is the description of religions is not true. Sure religious groups can do these things, just like any group can. However, it is not true to say that religions bring nothing but war and death to humanity. They can do much good also. The…"

"1. Try gently suggesting personal responsibility to (initially) augment moral authority. Faith doesn't preclude attempts to be 'like Christ'. And, in the face of their version of free will, personal responsibility isn't excluded,…"

"To most atheism infers a lack of structure. Most people are panicked by that notion. I don't see how you promote a non structured life to someone who feel at a loss without that basic element. To be religious all you have to do is give up and…"

Jim Ashby: Comment by Prytanis on 5 September 2008 at 11:57pm
I've really wanted to find a group of people to discuss this subject with, and to test some ideas that I've had about it recently. I didn't think I'd actually find a compatibilist (Jim Ashby) with which to debate! Frankly, I'm overjoyed, as it means that there is a rare breed here with whom I can debate. Very exciting.


Unless you are a masochist, there is no point. You are on a spiral into nothingness arguing with Ashby. Ref - there are many, many more. Read the whole thread - if you have the stamina. This summarises it.

But do what thou wilt.
