Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

There is no 'true evidence', for any humans point of view regarding our origin (existence?) (And many other things too). Only assumptions and opinions (and fuzzy feelings). What is deemed rational seems to depend on what one believes. Both can be rational whithin their own boundaries. I didn't writ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

... unresting from my case... Do you have a say in any of your beliefs or actions, or are you merely experiencing sensations? I think you want from me one single yes/no answer if in my material world I only 'experience' action/reaction sensations, but I cannot answer that. If I choose yes I'm not re...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

To Abelcainsbrother: Just because they might sound convincing does not make them right. It's not my intention to prove to be right, for who am I to state that my view is right? I cannot possibly know, as can not anyone else. Even you. I only give my opinion on how I experience our world/universe and...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

A quick slept over it response: as an atheist I cannot 'feel' love, but only 'experience' love. Is that a difference like you mean it?

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

As Kurieuo wrote: So, come again with how "you" have a will? And since when has a clump of particles or physics felt this or that about something. The questions isn't whether Atheists feel love, indeed that forms part of the modus tollens argument against materialism. Modus tollens argument against ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

As Kurieuo wrote: Consider "love" it has no physical or material substance, yet we believe such exists. "Morality" has no material nature. "Goodness", "Justice", "Fairness", perhaps even colour is immaterial since a subject is wired to perceive colour based upon wavelength. God has no bodily substan...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Well Kurieuo, you certainly know to write a lenghty text. There's nothing wrong with asking questions. Also questions outside the box. Anyone who denies to explore or accept the knowledge outside that box is an ignorant foo... man/woman. But, of course anyone is entitled to believe what, and up to w...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

@RickD and Kurieuo Many think of God in wrong terms, materialistic terms, even calling "God" a spirit and visualising up some ethereal ghostly form or essence that is God. You know Casper the ghost, or spirits you see in movies or the like, such are represented as materialistic beings. Made of some ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

At Kurieuo: I've had to read your extensive answer several times (epiphenominalism?), and I think it does represent my view pretty well. To determine what free will truely is becomes more difficult. I have to think about that for a while. Though if one consistantly follows the epiphenominalism, ther...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

RickD answered: 1) if God created the universe, He had to be outside of what He created. 2) God does not have physical "size". 3) since God cannot logically be a part of something He creates, he's outside the universe, and doesn't need to outrun the Big Bang. 1) Ok. That's logical, to be outside of ...
