Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Recent YouTube video (perhaps the penny will drop some day ;)): Cp9Nl6OUEJ0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cp9Nl6OUEJ0 Kurieuo; I looked at the video, and though there is much I disagree with, I do understand the logic presented. At approx the 4 minute mark, he presents premix #4 which says “Moral...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

We need to remember that we don't invent things like math or gravity, we discover them. 2+2=4 and has always equaled 4 before humans ever came up with the concept of math and it will always =4 ( probably? lol). Triangularity will always exist even if there are no triangles in the universe or no hum...

Re: Do You See Your Own Faith in Held Beliefs?

There is this idea that Atheism should be defined in an epistemological way, that is, God might ontologically exist but since we cannot know God via empirical or rational means then we ought to remain rationally Atheist. Such is often defined as "weak Atheism". Of course this line of thou...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

Nice try Ken. You actually said: Fair enough; allow me to rephrase. Science has not found any evidence that the spiritual realm exists; if they did they would study it. Ken Kenny, Only an idiot would try to hammer a nail with a plastic spoon. I agree! But what does that have to do with the conversa...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

Uh, Ken, what realm CAN the scientific method study? The PHYSICAL realm, correct? But the spiritual realm isn't physical - which is why they scientific method is inadequate as to the task. Now, the scientific method does reveal many astounding, immensely improbable things with unbelievably-thin mar...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

The fact is, there just isn’t any evidence the spiritual realm exists; if there were, people would use the scientific method to study it . Uh, Ken, what realm CAN the scientific method study? The PHYSICAL realm, correct? But the spiritual realm isn't physical - which is why they scientific method i...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

Isn't it obvious? ;) If what we directly experience isn't formed by our brains, then such suggests this "seat of consciousness" which puts the fuller picture together of the world we experience is at least more than merely our brain. Furthermore, I wouldn't merely suggest but argue strong...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

@Kurieuo Will look into the videos later... Do you suggest that our thoughts (will, soul) reside somewhere outside our brain? In an immaterial, or other specific non-physical, 'space'? Isn't it obvious? ;) If what we directly experience isn't formed by our brains, then such suggests this "seat...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

Ken: Yes and those outside stimuli are actions we experience from other people and other things; right? Often, yes. But those "other people and things" must ultimately have a source that is not them! True but their source has nothing to do with the discussion, because our brains are inter...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

But there have been cases of people's thoughts being altered as a direct result of brain damage. How could this be if thoughts don't originate from the brain? Ken Our brains are BOTH receivers and interpreters of OUTSIDE input, as well as originators of thoughts. Our brains receive, interpret, and ...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

JustHuman: Thoughts are not immaterial in the sense of the opposite to material stuff. Thoughts are virual, they do not reside anywhere else than whithin the neural patterns of our brain. So thoughts do not control anything, our brain does. To have thoughts, a brain must first exist. But if the bra...
