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". Now, I reject the above prem...

Re: Do you think LGBT is being forced on us?

Is an openly gay pastor acceptable? The answer has to do with what one considers an "openly gay pastor." I that means, a person, who well knows God's directives and position concerning sex outside of marriage, and sex with one of the same gender, and yet declares that they believe the opp...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Kenny's morality I'd expect is supported by a Christian moral ontology wherein God implants some understanding of moral rightness and wrongness within us. A main question is, what support is there to properly ground what he considers his own "subjective" morality (which as I see is actuall...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

If what you say about science is true, how come the people who study science don’t claim or even believe God-like abilities are behind all of this? Name the poll. The main one I've been aware to, Pew Research, goes back to 2009. Most scientists believe in God or a higher power, and there are much f...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

What is the evidence for believing given everything that exists God doesn't? It seems counterintuitive to me from the get go to deny God's existence. We also have the most powerful evidence which is the natural world with all its laws, functionality, and goings on. I don't know if this makes sense t...

Re: People lie in surveys when political correctness is involved

Seriously, though, what gives you the idea that I, or that progressives in general, are any less concerned with freedom than you are? I think who you see as "progressives" lost that title long ago. "Conservatives" appear to be more progressive for today's society where liberalis...

I personally feel that Shapiro is the most loving towards trans in being brutally honest, and sincerely wanting them to get help, to the point the trans beside him wants to beat the absolute $*** out of him.

Re: Reasons.org: "A Critical Reflection on Adam and the Genome"

You can't NOT bring a modern understanding and all our other influences to the text, to read it in an absolutely objective manner. We're "tainted" in that respect, all of us. Yet, I don't believe it makes a big difference. No one has the higher ground here. Some are just more flagrant with...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

I'm confused Philip, I read those links of Fuz's review. Or are you just undecided on this issue? That is, don't you embrace a human population scenario for Adam and Eve (i.e., pre-Adamic race in Gen 1 being different from Adam & Eve in Gen 2)? Yet Fuz disagrees, more aligns with my own beliefs ...

Re: Evolving from Simple to Complex?

Creatures are often nested together based upon similar phenotypical patterns we observe and conclusions being drawn which may/may not be correct in actuality. According to whom? The nested hierarchy picture I posted is the scientific consensus based on the panoply of objective traits of living orga...

Re: I'm New Here!

First consider the chimpanzee and human genomes are more than 98% identical. Next consider how we behave. You're wrong, that isn't true nor is it claimed by evolutionary scientists. http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/permanent-exhibitions/human-origins-and-cultural-halls/anne-and-bernard-spitzer-hall-...
