What is Humanism to you?

Started Apr 26, 2011 0 Replies

Maybe this belongs in another category besides the Water Cooler, but I'd just like to know what everyone thinks of Humanism. I consider myself a humanist and I know what it means to me. How do you…Continue

The Raptured Speak! Their message to those left behind.

This gave me a great chuckle. I found it on a site called Rapture Ready which was referred to in a recent episode of The Atheist Experience. For those of you who are vague about what some Christians…Continue

Timo Ostrander replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"Saying that you are 100% sure of something does seem a bit of an exaggeration to me on epistemological grounds, even with lots of supporting evidence. At the same time, I think we can say, I'm pretty damn sure when it comes to lots of things,…"

Timo Ostrander replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"I sit somewhere between the A and B camps depending on what claims we're talking about. I doubt his name was Jesus. There were most likely many preachers taking disciples at that time. The character in the bible is most likely a conglomeration…"

"I agree that we should go with less undeniably offensive ones like the camel and zombie examples. I also think that we have to be outspoken."

Amanda Mae Burklow replied to Timo Ostrander's discussion Dealing with Fundamentalist Loved Ones in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism
"Relations with my parents and I are extremely tense. Until about a year ago I was extremely fundamental. I even attended liberty university for a year. My parents were so proud of their 'young woman of God.' So when I left the faith even…"

"For the most part, I have not really brought the topic up. When I came out as gay to my parents they were devastated. Despite me still being a believer at the time, they have kind of equated my being gay with some kind of rejection of God. They made…"

"...ther´s a little problem with theses sentences, as the implication "I think" doesn´t state any evidence of the non-existence of a god; you might think, but you don´t automatically have to think correct, so the state of…"
