Christian Post: Was It Necessary for Jesus to Die?

This post popped up in my web-o-tron interface. I saw the header, and peeped “ooh!” This topic is one of my pet peeves about Christianity. Let’s see what the author has to say, that’ll clarify the matter. [Read more...]

Are you a Christian man? Don’t marry these types of women

Are you a man? Are you a Christian? Need a handy list of women to avoid? We’ve got you covered. [Read more...]

Logic: Reversing the Polarity

There’s a type of argument that’s always bugged me. Some examples are: Evidence for a god? It’s all around you. If God didn’t exist, we wouldn’t exist! That hurricane was God’s wrath because we’re allowing people to happily live their lives in freedom [they probably wouldn't put it that way] Bob was a drug addict, [Read More...]

Happy Belated Evolution-Downfall Day

William Dembski, noted promoter of Intelligent Design said recently, emphasis mine: In the next five years, molecular Darwinism—the idea that Darwinian processes can produce complex molecular structures at the subcellular level—will be dead. When that happens, evolutionary biology will experience a crisis of confidence because evolutionary biology hinges on the evolution of the right molecules. [Read More...]

As an atheist, this is why apologetics don’t convince me

When I hook horns with apologetics, I often wonder what the other side is doing, because from A to Z, their entire approach is wrong to convince me of anything. Today, I thought I’d spend some time being introspective and explaining where apologetics falls short for me, personally. [Read more...]

That’s more difficult since Hinduism doesn’t seem to conform to a standard monotheistic model. One stated that Hinduism is broad enough to include atheists… so I’m not likely to find atheist Hindus arguing for [Read More...]

Proving the existence of Allah to an atheist

I love looking into articles such as this, which discuss how to convert atheists. They provide interesting insights into the epistemological thingamajigs of theists. This is how they think supporting claims works. Though, often they’re just trying to “play the atheists’ game” against them, even if the arguments aren’t why they believe in the first [Read More...]

Thresholds of Acceptance or Falsification

I don’t mean to butt into JT’s debate (butt I’m gonna). I made a comment (in his second rebuttal) drunkenly trying to express that acceptance of a theory/model/assertion, when it comes to conflicting with other parts of science, isn’t a binary proposition. It occurred to me that I could probably express this better as a [Read More...]

An Example of how Scientific Journals are in Trouble

Merely being published in a “science” journal is quickly becoming nothing worth mentioning. Creationists are diluting the concept in the same sense that they create modern “Universities” that have no accreditation. [Read more...]
