emocivilblog replied to Reha ULKU's discussion Someone is Judged for Insulting of People's Religious Feelings in Turkey
"Turkey is 99% Muslim. Ergo, the natural tendency is towards funamentalist Islam. The EU is insane if it admits 70 million more Muslims into its borders. All that will do is speed up Europe's own suicidal Islamisation whilst doing nothing but…"

emocivilblog replied to Reha ULKU's discussion Someone is Judged for Insulting of People's Religious Feelings in Turkey
"As Western influence declines around the world, it's as predictable as gravity that Muslim countries will revert to the fundamentals of Islam. Which, as Sam Harris says: The Problem with Islamic Fundamentalism are the Fundamentals of Islam…"

"Let The Mystery Be - Iris DeMent Everybody's wonderin what and where they all came from Everybody's worryin bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me…"

emocivilblog replied to TNT666's discussion As atheists, lets make the 'ism' of atheism obsolete
"I called you a hypocrite because you are inconsistent. You want a literal use of the word atheism, but not a literal use of the word humanism. I know some humanist organisations have manifestos but, as I said, that is not how everyday people…"

emocivilblog replied to TNT666's discussion As atheists, lets make the 'ism' of atheism obsolete
"Now you are loading humanism with fashionable liberal values. That's ironic, given your insistance on proper word choice. Humanism just means human-centred. This is how most people understand it. So why insist that atheism be value-free, yet…"

emocivilblog replied to Ted E Bear's discussion Will the Arab Spring Work?
"A sane Arab Spring would know that lasting freedom can only come by first acknowledging the anti-democratic nature of Islam, and hence either promoting mass apostasy or somehow reforming Islam. But since they have not done this, merely toppling the…"

emocivilblog replied to TNT666's discussion As atheists, lets make the 'ism' of atheism obsolete
"Sorry, I should have said "all atheists are human, and all humans have a value system" instead of beliefs. Yes I know you want to unload atheism, which is fair enough, but "atheists do not follow anything" indicates you also want…"

emocivilblog replied to TNT666's discussion As atheists, lets make the 'ism' of atheism obsolete
""atheists do no "follow" anything." That's not true. All atheists are human, and all humans have beliefs. If you're going to argue that people should use words intelligently, you should do likewise. Otherwise, people…"

emocivilblog replied to Keri's discussion Atheistic Religions/Philosophies?
"Well we sure need some atheist/humanist philosophers to take the lead now that Richard Dawkins et al have done their job. So, more power to you. For me, about the only thing that sunk in from reading Buddhism is to avoid strong attachments if they…"

emocivilblog replied to TNT666's discussion As atheists, lets make the 'ism' of atheism obsolete
"It's no secret that many atheists find atheism a thoroughly boring topic after a while. Mark Twain: "Atheists are so boring; all they talk about is God." Hence, for long-term atheists, atheists forums are defacto humanist forums.…"

emocivilblog replied to Keri's discussion Atheistic Religions/Philosophies?
"OK, one exception: some practice of mindfulness might be helpful if you're not familiar with watching your own thoughts and feelings e.g. And meditation can be helpful sometimes to rest your mind and body."

emocivilblog replied to Keri's discussion Atheistic Religions/Philosophies?
"1. “reason is … the slave of the passions” -- David Hume 2. “nothing can oppose or retard the impulse of passion, but a contrary impulse” -- David Hume 3. make the rest up yourself. You are now smarter than 90% of…"

emocivilblog replied to TNT666's discussion As atheists, lets make the 'ism' of atheism obsolete
"You're disrespecting the real debate by imposing a simplicity that only exists in your mind. Yes, technically atheism is not a worldview and it's fair enough to want to rid any "ism" associated with the word atheist. But…"

emocivilblog replied to Cheryl's discussion Will Secularization Reduce Our Militarization?
"The Western world's thirst for war has been sedated over the past few decades mainly because of the haunted memories of the Holocaust, Vietnam, and so on. And now the West is totally sick on meddling in the Middle East too. Our thirst for war,…"
