Angry Atheist in MO - Morals and ethics in atheistic anarchy (2)

Last time: I blazed through the observation that a-theism and an-archy share certain similarities, both in how each word is defined, and how each idea is redefined by its critics in order to dismiss either without addressing the problems each poses for ethics. I concluded by mentioning that these redefinitions serve to cut each idea off from the moral center of the individual. This time, I'll clarify what I mean by that, and introduce my thesis - tentatively one could call this a theory of…

Angry Atheist in MO - Morals and ethics in atheistic anarchy (1)

In today's installment of this new episodic essay, I harangue readers with some thoughts on what I'll call "existential anarchy" from an angry, atheistic point of view. I want to consider the roots of two ideas:

A-theos: without gods.

An-archos: without rules.

Both words are defined by what they lack. Without the missing subject, each object would be meaningless, just as "no-thing" is ill-defined without the implicit missing subject -- the…

Why are Christians conservative?

Whether it's a well-known concept or not, the hypocrisy of modern Christians is startling. Well, not startling when you realize (to even their admittance) that they do not read their own Bible. But startling to us who have, and have gleaned from its pages some positive things.

It’s time for a good old fashioned rant: Utopianist Idiots

A utopia is a perfect (or close too it) society free from the problems that plague real societies. You can find utopianists throughout the spectrum's but mostly on the edges. Authoritarians are utopianits as well are anarchists, there are atheistic utopianists who thing if we get rid of religion the world will be at peace and there are theocratic utopianists who believe if everyone and every government followed their religion the world would be a peace and there are…

Atheist since birth in The people's Kommunistic Monarchy of Sweden

I do not understand Why there is such a grand hullabaloo about being an atheist. Religion has never in my whole life been a part my personality. At times I can get disturbed about the crazies out there in the world that hold extremely unexplainable, contradictory believes but I can always just walk away and not need to deal with another such person for a few years.



During the early years of my life in school it was popular amongst the 1st and 2nd graders to ask each other if they… Continue
