Seth Andrews - "The Ultimate Question"

Seth Andrews is NOT “The Thinking Atheist.”  He’ll tell you this himself, and doubtless, he’s tired of disavowing that that sobriquet was in any way meant to represent him.  He wanted it to be an icon to represent atheists who THINK, who have reasoned their way to the conclusion: “Religion simply does not make sense.”  All the above notwithstanding, there can be no argument that Mr. Andrews is A thinking atheist, even if he isn’t THE Thinking Atheist.



As evidence to…

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…

The illusion of free will

If there’s one thing that’s obvious to every conscious human being alive, it is that we have free will. We have choice. We can do whatever we want. (Well, to the extent of our abilities, that is.)



But do we? This is a question we might never find the answer to. Why? We can only live every moment once, and make a choice at any given moment once.



Today, I had a sudden realisation. Is our free will an illusion? Has every decision and its respective outcome in the world been… Continue

5 yr old FTW!

My son, who turns five in a couple of weeks, rocks!



We were doing some yard work with my parents (who are religious) this past weekend, and I heard about the following conversation between him and my mother from my wife. Sadly I was not there to witness it.



We are tilling out some old sod from the side of my yard and he was "helping" by picking up clumps of sod and tossing them into a pile.



Son: Why does the grass stick together like that?

Grandma: Because that's… Continue

To Believe or Not to Believe that is the question

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures.

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers, elders or wise men.

Believe only after careful observation and analysis.

When you find that it agrees with reason… Continue

I started compiling the list over the summer, and now it is finished. I have a list of 100 NEW Questions for Christians. Okay, so maybe someone has used these before. But they are not the usual questions atheists approach theists with (or respond to theists with) like the Problem of Pain or the immorality of hell (or genocide or having rape victims marry their rapists, etc.) These are new questions like, what does God think of abortion? What would Jesus do? and Are gay dolphins sinning when… Continue

Going on right now

Over at Angie the Anti-Theist I've got a lot uncommented posts. Those make me sad :( So I've done a few things to make it easier for non-Blogger members to join in the conversation. I'm using the Intense Debate comment system, allowing anonymous posters, and I've switched my blog to accept GRAvitars.



Posts that need your love (to feed my ego):



An Update on 100 Questions… Continue

What Does Atheism Symbolize To You?

Please add your two cents. I'd rather do a poll but this will have to do.
What does Atheism mean to you?
How would you symbolize it? How does being an atheist affect you and your life?
If you could pick on thing to represent atheism, what would it be and why?

Looking forward to LOTS of answers! Please comment!
