Vincent commented on Mike Mitchell's blog post The Attractiveness of God: A Dream Review
"Phew. Powerful stuff. But I can't relate to this concept/concern in specific as I never wanted to believe in a personal God necessarily. Nonetheless I can relate to the yearning for something more."

Vincent commented on Homer Edward Price's blog post Evolution of Morality
"Makes sense to me even if I thought it left out consideration of Dawkins' model of the gene as the unit of natural selection which makes altruism within the species understandable."

Conception of God That Is Sure To Displease Everyone

So lets see if I can come up with a conception of God that will irritate the hell out of everyone. OK. Assuming God exists what do I think It/Him/She/They is/are? I think that God is the 99%. By that I mean the 99% of you that is actually running your body and mind right up from creating new red blood cells to most of your "higher" brain functions. Another way to think of it is whenever you refer to yourself as "I" you are referring to less than 1% of the total of what "you" actually are. The…See More

Do people Benefit from having a religious period? (Originally posted elsewhere on this site)

This is an interesting point. I was raised Roman Catholic and went to Catholic schools right up until college. Religion is a community builder, I'll give it that. We knew who we were, why we were, and where we were and there was no questioning any of these things. I think that is a good place to start for way more children than not given the gargantuan uncertainties built into the world of even the most secure child. My sense of it is that religion provides a stabilizing force to the mental…See More

Hey folks.

My friends and I have a Teamspeak 3 Voice Server. I'm usually there if you would like to talk rather than type.We have an atheist/secularist channel called Freethinkers and Philosophers.

Typing sucks. Email me an essay if you want to type and I'll type you a reply. But I want to hear your voice.

If you don't have the software here is where to download it. It is simple to use. And I mean its simple enough so that I have no problem and that's…

Hello everyone. I'm an artist and writer and someone who is interested in community. I've been listening to a lot of Dan Dennett on youtube and find his argument that if secularists want to end the more harmful excesses of religion we have to provide institutions that do the things that religion is good at.

My view of religion is that God created me to not believe in Him, and in my conversations with Him,…
