God: kind of like an abusive boyfriend

Another great image I’m stealing from Facebook: [Read more...]

Did Chris Mooney have a point?

On my previous post on Chris Mooney, James Croft left a comment which I’m very grateful for and want to respond to. Here’s the meat of James’ comment: I think that Mooney is making a general case that supporters of science and critics of religion need to pay closer attention to the well-developed science of [Read More...]

Arguments for the existence of something that sounds kind of like a god

A close cousin of god-of-the-gaps arguments are arguments that argue for something that sounds kind of like a god, but which wouldn’t actually have to be a god. A good example of this is the argument from design, which claims that we can somehow show that the life on Earth and/or the universe was designed, [Read More...]

What arguments are popular among liberal Christians?

Commenter mnb0 makes a point that I think is worth devoting a post to: Countering fundie- and creacrap is easy. It has been done many times before.

I just saw Amazing Spiderman not in 2D, not in 3D, but in 4D!

The other is a column in TIME by one Tim Padgett, who admits the Catholic hierarchy has [Read More...]

Bill O’Reilly’s argument for the existence of God

When Fox News host Bill O’Reilly interviewed Richard Dawkins on his show, he opened by saying, “I think it takes more faith to be like you, an atheist, than like me, a believer, and it’s because of nature. I just don’t think we could have lucked out to have the tides come in, the tides [Read More...]

There are no good arguments for the existence of God

One of the less silly-sounding criticisms made of popular atheists is that we don’t deal with the best arguments for religion out there. That criticism was one of the main reasons Michael Ruse gave, in his review of The God Delusion in the academic journal Isis, for claiming the quality of popular atheist writing is “downright awful.” Similarly, the New York [Read More...]
