Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

Hi Kurieuo, In a thread some days ago you wrote "Maybe you can take up my old challenge in a post elsewhere, to put on the table the nature of reality as you see it and your justification for such." I accept your challenge and will try to give an answer here but I must admit that I am a bit scary. T...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

@Philip Nils: my reason to be an atheist is not primarily related to Darwinism. Then what IS your primary reason for your atheism? Some years ago I wrote a three page long list of arguments for not believing in God. There were 24 different points grouped in three sections 1. There are no good argum...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

@Paul Eventually Darwinism, when taken to its natural conclusion leads to either nihilism or epicureanism. Either you get to the view that life is just a series of chemical reactions with nothing but the drive to propagate the species ( if that) and there is no real significance to life other than t...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

@Paul The problem with the superficial view of Darwinian evolution is that most people that support it are not willing to take it to its natural conclusion BUT others are. Survival of the fittest may only mean that the must suitable traits are passed on, BUT don't ever think for a moment that it sto...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

@Philip Don't make assumptions about what people do or don't know. I certainly don't make any assumptions about what people do or don't know. I wrote "It seems that you don't understand the evolution theory." I based that on what you wrote: "But for many, especially those in positions of great power...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Hi all, I am new on this forum and have read this thread with interest. The moral argument for God existence that you discuss is perhaps the most import argument for theism as I see it. However, being an atheist and materialist, I don't agree. In the discussion I find that the attitude from the Chri...
