Is Panentheism Atheism?

In the video above, Henry Neufeld asks a question which was also discussed here on this blog recently: is panentheism atheism? Hemant Mehta also discussed a book by Nancy Abrams, about a God that atheists might be able to embrace. The book is called A God That Could Be Real: Spirituality, Science, and the Future of [Read More...]

Embarrassed by Mythicism/Antievolutionism

Have you ever wondered why the two New Testament scholars to write books directly tackling mythicist claims are Bart Ehrman and Maurice Casey, both of whom happen to be atheists? I don’t think it is a coincidence. As atheists, Ehrman and Casey have the most to be embarrassed about when fellow atheists uncritically embrace views that [Read More...]

Bart Ehrman on Jesus Mythicism

Mike Bird shared this video of Bart Ehrman giving a nice succinct response to a mythicist. [Read more...]

YEC Connect the Dots

The image above appeared on the blog Friendly Atheist. It makes a number of points – not least of which is that the dishonesty and special pleading of young-earth creationists makes them a subject of deserved mockery. But it also engages in some sleight of hand itself. Creationists – meaning anyone who believes in a Creator – [Read More...]

Atheism Isn’t Skepticism

A recent IO9 article indicated that more people in Britain believe in ghosts and aliens than in God. IO9 also highlighted a science experiment that might offer an explanation of why people see/feel ghosts (which Smithsonian also reported on), talked about spirituality and pseudoscience in science fiction, and shared an infographic of misconceptions which are widespread, [Read More...]

YEC: First Step Towards Atheism

It is entirely possible that Ken Ham genuinely believes that his life’s work is filling holes in the cracks in the dam that he thinks keeps the flood of atheism from sweeping over weak Christians. But as I’ve pointed out here before, the truth is quite different. The flood he fears actually includes much that [Read More...]

Proof Atheists Have Morals

Gavin Rumney shared the above, and it made me chuckle. Given that at least most atheists don’t take advantage of the gullibility that characterizes at least some Christians (and clearly some people who at least claim to be Christians do take advantage of that gullibility for their own profit), does this prove clearly and unambiguously that the line [Read More...]

Christians and our Critics

The quote is something that Arni Zachariassen said on Facebook, and which I have quoted here with his permission. Very often I come across atheist critiques of Christianity that are shallow, uninformed and pretty much not thought through at all. Especially, it seems, in reference to the Bible. I often feel the exacerbated need to [Read More...]

Who’s in Foxholes?

The quote from the Faith and Theology blog will probably irritate some. But I think its point is well taken. To the extent that some wrongly claim that being in the midst of war causes people to lose their atheism as they find their lives in danger, being in the midst of war could just [Read More...]

Stereotypes Make Perfect Sense

I saw the image above on FunnyJunk and liked that it took the caricatures that some Christians and atheists offer of each other, and placed them side by side. I doubt there are many who would genuinely recognize either description as an accurate portrayal of their own worldview. But that doesn’t seem to prevent them [Read More...]

Atheists Losing Faith

Scot McKnight shared the above infographic. If most who are raised atheists do not remain atheists, I reallywonder what they become.   [Read more...]
