Philosophy of religion class

I'm taking a philosophy of religion class in a few weeks at my local community college, just need it as a Gen Ed, and the teacher is supposed to one of the best at the school. I picked up one of the books today (class starts in a few weeks) and it instantly made me dread the class. It was FULL of the same tired-ass arguments for god's existence that I figured out were bullshit a looooooong time ago. "Where did everything come from, huh?" Pascals Wager, stuff like that. No negative commentary on…See More

"Disgusting. But not at all unexpected. But, he sets a good precedence... religious people who are fatally wounded/ill should just stay home out of everyone's way and pray to get better. That would solve SO many problems."

My problem with "belief"

Posted on May 22, 2009 at 9:15pm 1 Comment

Alright, so either there is a god or there isn't. If there is a god, he has set characteristics. But it IS black-or-white. What pissed me off is when people act like belief is an opinion. "You must respect all opinions about the afterlife and gods". Opinion? How is believing a fairy tale an opinion? If God exists, how is believing that 2 and 2 make 4 an opinion? An example of an opinion: chocolate tastes better than vanilla. Another example of an opinion: gays should not get married. Another… Continue

A Parable of 3 men

Posted on February 19, 2009 at 7:33pm 0 Comments

A man was playing soccer. He tripped and hit his head. When he got up he knew only his language. He saw two men arguing.

"What do you mean, heirs of ANY caliph can be a successor of Muhammad?"

"They were trained the same, were they not? Does it matter if they share blood?"

The man thought for a second.

"Muhammad wouldn't care whether they shared blood, he trained them the same!"

The first arguer frustrated, left.

The second arguer and the man talked for the rest of… Continue

"I'll respect your beliefs if you respect mine."

Posted on December 8, 2008 at 12:17am 4 Comments

"I'll respect your beliefs if you respect mine."



How many times have you heard that? Too many, I assume. I've heard it (or a variation) so many times that I haven't even thought about what it means, until now.



Let me dissect this.

"I'll respect your beliefs..."

My...beliefs? I am an atheist, I don't have beliefs. An atheist by definition lacks beliefs. So you'll respect my non-existent beliefs if I respect yours? Hmm...

Ok,… Continue

To get the names of priest in churches I type Catholic Church Detroit at Google and then search for the priests name at the churches site. I think I have caused some losses of priests. I feel most have doubts. The practice they get as a priest helps the have a good life as Atheists. Best luck the quicker the religious ship sinks the better.

Not sure to what was referred to in "I'm glad to see someone who understands evolution ...," but in reading your post I see that "... then why are there still monkeys?" begs the questions "What didn't happen to them (the monkeys)?" or "Why were they born as monkeys from monkeys still?"

But I don't care about monkeys so I don't care about the questions about monkeys that were being begged to be asked. I'll leave the monkeys alone if they leave me alone.

The "... no species 'comes from' another species ..." I have no issue with, but I (personally) am more than a specimen (species).

Evolution. Gotta be better than re-volution: A revolving from one dictactorship to another.
Dictatorship. A group of individuals too stupid to allow one wacko to rule over their personal group cowardice.

If evolve is searching for more than the insanity of our current situation (war, famine, way more etc.), then I am all for evolving.
