John Camilli commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
"I have one other thing to add. I just posted a similar response to Thomas' own thread, but it is pertinent here as well:   Thomas, you are wrong about what an atheist is, and you are doing harm to the idea by purporting it as something it…"

John Camilli commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
"I like that you are sticking with this. I'm rooting for you to be able to come up with a solid set of principals, although I know it'll be very tough. Here's my latest thoughts:   Your 3rd and 4th tenets give me some trouble.…"

Tony Maitland commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
"One cannot be a non-believer in everything.  To say you do not believe in any of the gods is a fine statement.  However, it leaves a large blank in the conversation.  What do you believe in, as an atheist.  I, for one, believe in…"

Thomas True commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
"Good luck with that. This is why the adherents think that atheist have some sort of belief system. It is lack of belief. I find that it is so hard to get atheist to agree on anything. You should read my blog about why atheist will lose the war with…"

Glen Rosenberg commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
"It aint a knee-jerk. Words have connotations and denotations. Creation is strongly associated with ... How about befuddled and confused?"

Tony Maitland commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
"I am sorry you had a knee-jerk reaction to the legitimate word "creation".  Would it be acceptable if we substituted "universal existence"?  I do not like to use two words where one will do. I hope…"

"I had same thought as the wiley coyote. Others too."

Wiley Coyote commented on Tony Maitland's blog post What We Believe
""We stand in awe of all creation"    Sounds to religious, almost like an endorsement of theistic belief in a creator."

What We Believe

In the past weeks I have been trying to develop a brief statement of beliefs that could possibly encompass a worldview that freethinkers of many stripes could agree upon. I have had some assistance here and would like to present the latest version for your comments. (I have removed prior versions to prevent confusion.) Thanks to all for helpful comments. Version IV begins now.WHAT WE BELIEVE (IV)We stand in awe of universal existence.During our brief interlude here on Earth, we strive to…See More

John Camilli commented on Tony Maitland's blog post An Existentialist's Creed (under construction)
"I like it, I like it! But since it's still under construction, I'll offer a little constructive criticism. Hope you don't mind. My first question is, how do you define ignorance and evil, since you hold no truths to be self-evident,…"

Tony Maitland commented on Tony Maitland's blog post Toward a more positive framework for a freethinking attitude
"Surely you stand FOR something, not just against theism. Don't call it a creed, if that offends you. Call it a mission statement."

Tony Maitland replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion Do we need a Universal Atheist Motto? e.g. "In Darwin we trust". in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I would prefer "In Science and Reason we trust." Science for the facts of existence and Reason for the morals and ethics of living."

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

Dr. Terence Meaden commented on Tony Maitland's blog post A True Believer's Creed
"Yes, let's define ourselves in the positive because we trust the power of reliable reasoning. Saying we are 'freethinkers' and 'rationalists' are good positives. What others are as good?"

Hi Tony, and welcome to this friendly site with its thousands of freethinkers who recognize religion for the superstition and human tragedy that it is, seeing that gods are nothing more than fictions inside people's heads.
