Re: Morality Without God?

Hey thanks for the response. It's been a while since this thread has seen activity. I'll jump right in and see what I can comment on. Your first argument is an interesting one. I have seen it before, so it doesn't quite convince me. The problem is that by explaining man's ability to discern right f...

Re: Morality Without God?

Addressing the question of the title of this thread, “Morality without God?”, I find it quite easy to trace out the origins of morality without the need of a divine source. Once consciousness arose in animals the next step was self-consciousness, the state of being aware of oneself...from the point...

Re: Help

Parts of evolution are actually a step above scientific fact and people do need to realize this. Evolution is not "just a theory". That is like saying the theory of gravity is just a theory, or the theory of relativity is just a theory. Evolution probably did happen, and really why the heck does th...

Re: Christianity and secular music

I love all kinds of secular music. I listen to a lot of The Doors, Nine Inch Nails, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and Radiohead. I think secular music tends to be the best music instrumentally because the artist is focused on making the song itself impactful and catchy, while with worship music the inst...

Re: Why do many christians not like homosexuals?

Do you believe that being homosexual is wrong? People are born heterosexual or homosexual. This is a big problem for people, and demonizes religion for an atheist. Most people i know will laugh at the idea of religion because of the lack of caring they show for homosexuality. shouldn't Christians d...

Hello guys, thanks for taking the time to read, I've been pretty active in my atheist vs. theist life, looking up arguments, evidence, evolution etc, all that stuff, and I came across this blog on tumblr, this guy looks around 50 by his profile picture and he's still saying stuff like "Evolution's n...

Re: Your thoughts?

Good stream of thoughts. To be honest, when I debate atheists, I no longer list evidence for God (just as you said), I rather attack the core of this "new atheism" - "rationality", "freethinking" and dogmatic, unfalsifiable ideas disguised as science. What I ask them is how a series of chemical rea...

Your thoughts?

Hello everyone, I would like your thoughts on some arguments I am beginning to like more and more to use in discussions with secularists. The argument is about several things, morality, logic, materialism, meaning of life, objectivity. We are all aware of the selling line of the atheist worldview. T...

Re: Homosexuality

So tell me - What do you call it when two animals of the same gender have sex with one another? I call it a homosexual act. I'd love to know what your word is. You are not understanding. Animals cannot have sexual intercourse. Only humans can. You are equating human sexuality with animal mating. An...

Re: Homosexuality

Guess I'm not the best person to give an answer since I'm of the belief that we did evolve from animals, and that homosexuality is NOT a choice. :P I didn't know that... that you were an theistic evolutionist. I'm just wondering, I've always wanted to ask for evidence for that theory but sometimes ...

That's funny. I did that on here once :D
"Jonouchi Katsuya" Doesn't sound like a female name. I suppose it sometimes is difficult with Japanese names, eh?

Re: Does This Sound Loving?

The only claim I've made is that there are nearly identical verses in the Bible as the ones quoted from the Koran in the original post. Whether you choose to interpret them as "tyranny and violence" is up to you. No, sir, that's not sufficient for me. You claim there are verses that are nearly iden...

Re: Does This Sound Loving?

Answer me, Noah. You were so outgoing with everyone else, but when I ask you for verse references you suddenly become real quiet. Care to explain?
