Communicating the odds of this universe.

While it’s certainly a goal of mine to understand the pro-god arguments, my primary goal is to be able to communicate why I don’t buy them clearly and to people who may not have four PhDs.  So I had a thought this morning about how to respond to a believer who says the odds of [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…]

I don’t think Answers in Genesis quite gets science Pt. 3 (of 3)

In part 1 and part 2, I currently addressing this article from Answers in Genesis. I’m not too happy how part 2 came out.

I don’t think Answers in Genesis quite gets science Pt. 2

Matt Dillahunty hands Sye Ten Bruggencate the beating for which he begged.

Red Hot Victorian Atheism: What We Can Learn

Victorian. Chances are, that word conjures in your mind either a bewhiskered chap laboring under several layers of wool as he adjusts his morality-enhancing penis chassis and dreams of imperialism, or a demure lady of unspeakable virtue dying in childbirth while putting the finishing touches to a devotional needlepoint.

Sam Harris: it’s always now.

Last night in the Q&A I got asked how I deal with the prospect of my own mortality.  I responded in two ways, the first is that knowing that it’s all finite makes me rush to take it all in.  I won’t be able to smell the roses forever, so I’m sure to smell them [Read More…]

Peter Payne debate: do ethics need a foundation in god?

Here’s my debate with Dr. Peter Payne at UC Santa Cruz.  Leave questions in the comments and I’ll try to answer them over the next week. Huh…I just finished watching the video, which was posted by the Institute for Credible Christianity (a group for which Peter Payne is the managing director).  At around the 56:00 [Read More…]
