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...]

Skepticon talks: Scott Clifton.

Scott Clifton gave a spectacular talk at Skepticon about “God, Science, and the Problem of Nature.”  I was traveling to San Jose for a debate and was putting together a rebuttal to the version of Kalaam I thought I’d encounter and so I messaged Matt Dillahunty to get his take.  He directed me to a [Read More...]

Accuracy of the Prophecy of the Writings of the Bible

Fulfilled prophecy is frequently thrown at us as “evidence” that a god exists. Here’s why I find it numbingly uncompelling. [Read more...]

The Holiness of God: Chapter 2 – Holy, Holy, Holy

It turns out that Kevin Sorbo is definitely not a philosopher, despite playing a [Read More...]

Looks like a bit of a slow news day.  It’s probably just as well since I’m operating on very little sleep.  No worries!  There are some stories to write about and new videos to be watched.  Here’s Matt Dillahunty killing it on the Unholy Trinity Tour. [Read more...]

An Attitude Problem

WWJTD’s current stationed preacher, Larry, in the inevitable digressions of any discussion with a theist, started talking about meaning and purpose. As usual, it’s difficult to even get across what our position tends to be. [Read more...]

Philosophy is not Dead

Dishearteningly, I hear frequently from my fellow godless hominids that “philosophy has nothing more to add to learning about the world. Science has taken over“. I don’t agree. Hopefully, it doesn’t take being hit by a car to convince you of this. [Read more...]
