Intellectual Dishonesty And Being Certain Gods Do Not Exist

There is nothing more aggravating than being in the middle of a discussion about the parameters of what constitutes a God, and another atheist in the discussion says to you,”You are being intellectually dishonest by saying deities absolutely do not exist.…

Why is There Even a Question About God?

This struck me funny this morning as I was contemplating -lost in thought.  Even the question itself, "Does God exist?", is bizarre.



My girls will watch a questionably scary movie and immediately be wary of the dark rooms in our house.  I have several rational arguments to belay, to ease their worries.  Arguments that allow me to run through creepy old houses in the dark no-problem.  Here's 2 examples...



Me stating rationally: There were no…

God is logically impossible

If God provided proof that he exists, then it would be logical to believe in him.  The absence of proof leaves only faith for belief.  You do not need faith if you have proof and vice versa.  By God’s own choice, he can only be known by faith.



But why have faith in this particular God?  If God won’t give us proof, what’s to stop us from believing in Allah or Zeus?  To have faith is to deny logic.  What alternative is there to logic?  How do we think?  Mindlessness is the absence…

When the philosophy undergraduates discover god...

This is my very first post on here so be very, very kind.  Maybe even sycophantic if you have it in you… ;-)

I've decided to post this in order to avoid having a drawn out and painful discussion with the original author of a Christian apology which, like arguing with a drunk teenager, is largely pointless and always entirely depressing.

The post in question was from someone called Templestream, a guy who was trolling on Atheist Revolution.  His theory was the typical drivel and…

People, Who Believe the Devil Exists, Don’t Believe In God.



Recently during an email exchange with a friend of mine (in which I was trying to explain to him that the bible was not literally true) my friend explained to me that I was…

I Get Philophical on Long Rainy Weekends...

...drink a few beers and ponder the existence of Sun.



"Show me the evidence!" I say, thumping the table with my fist for emphasis, "Show me the e-v-i-d-e-n-c-e!" I shared this sentiment with the men at work, and they all agreed. "Yeah, where the hell's it at?" "I haven't seen it in a while." "Does it even exist?"



The Sun came out yesterday.



I was standing atop a 30-foot pipe bridge when He burst upon us in all His Glory. "I believe!" I cried, throwing my hands…

What evidence Muslims use to prove that Islam is true



I have mentioned many times here on Atheist Nexus about the social pressures to conform, and the cult-like nature of tradionalist Islam (isolationist, puritanical, exclusivist, controlling etc), and the many mind-control techniques employed by the religious people to ensure they retain power and the religion survives. However, underlying all this is the assumption that Muslims make that Islam is 'the true…

Proving that god hates Brasilians

The Formula 1 season has not yet over but the world champion of 2009 is already known: Jenson Button. As the year before, the decision happened during the Brasilian GP in Interlagos and like last year, an Englishman finished just in 5th position to score enough points to ensure the title against a Brasilian.



Admittedly, last year it was a lot closer: Massa (a devout catholic, who steps into a prayer booth to pray before every single race) lost in the very last race in one of the last… Continue

My Response And Thoughs On Kirk Camerons Video "Origin Into Schools"

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part. However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

Very Sloppy of Him

1. The more skilled a craftsman is, the less defects his product contains. [1]

2. The perfect craftsman is an omnipotent creator (a.k.a. "God").

3. God should therefore be capable of producing a creation without any sloppy defects. [2] This includes humans, of course.

4. At the organ level, the inflamed human appendix is an obvious defect of design.

5. Ergo, humans are far from being physically flawless. In behavioural aspects, Christianity largely agrees. [3]

6. One is… Continue
