The Civil Atheist - Theist Discussion: How to Get There

In my last blog entry, I reported on what I thought was a rather extraordinary event: a YouTube discussion between Dr. Michael Jones, his wife, both theists, and Atheist Nexus member Steve Shives, along with a number of both theist and atheist participants, in what was entirely a calm, civil and downright amiable discussion on topics regarding both belief and the lack thereof.  Steve certainly seemed to think that both the discussion and its contributors were notable as well, as he gave a…

Software that supports community discussions

I have used lots of different software for holding discussions: phpBB, vBulletin, Wordpress and similar blogging stuff, facebook and so on. I have found a number of common features that facilitate and make discussion more powerful and features that damp down the ability to hold discussions. For a community like Atheist Network it would be difficult to change existing software, it would be a matter of lobbying the group that produce it. Is it worth the effort? Lets discuss this a bit further… Continue

Online Discussions and Logical Fallacies

Don't worry. This post will not list and define the many types of logical fallacies that exist. I’m not expert enough for that and I’m too lazy to Google the research necessary. What I hope to do is describe some observations about logical fallacies garnered from blogs and forums from around the Internet.



Logical fallacies have a legitimate function in formal debate. If you can persuade your audience and win your point with an invalid argument, then good for you. You’re a clever dude… Continue

Cenroship – and lack of it

Here in the UK your humble blogger had a word ("Muzzies") censored on a discussion list. It was used in much the same way as one might use "fundies" or "God botherers". the ironic thing was, it was a discussion list of an association of gay and lesbian humanists, the very sort of group that is, or should be, against religious privilege, not averse to a bit of mild piss-taking and in favour of free speech (short of gratuitous offence and racism, of course, which this was not). I was even accused… Continue

Talking Atheism and Dawkins with a police chaplain

I don't know exactly how this will go, but I have a lot of respect for this man. I've known him for 4 1/2 years now. I forget how the subject came up at all, but yesterday (seeing as it's now 2am) I 'came out' as an Atheist to him. He seemed rather surprised. (Seeing as I live in Georgia most people are surprised. I'm not shy about my beliefs. I don't shout about them, but when presented with an opportunity I gladly share my views.) He also teaches courses at a local college to do with religion… Continue
