Re: You Might Be a Fundamentalist Atheist if...

Book marked as an amusing future read. :) Though I do slightly wince at Dudeacus97's comment, "...Start freaking out and..... because you question an established scientific theory." There is generally a reason that a Theory is called 'established'. Mainly it's because up-till now said Theory has wi...

I found this blog by JP Holding about this:

You Might Be a Fundamentalist Atheist if...

This is a funny thing I found recently. It's a "You Might Be a Fundamentalist Atheist if..." list inspired by Jeff Foxworthy's "You Might Be a Redneck if..." jokes. It was made by an anonymous reader on JP Holding's site, "Tektoonics." (He makes Christian apologetics vids on YouTube, but illustrates...

Re: i need help - a letter

Something that I would definitely include is the fact that Richard Dawkins contradicts himself in this book. In other writings, he has said that moral values do not exist: The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation. During the minute it takes me to...

I'm not sure if it's an organization. It might just be one guy, but if it is it's just one guy with a lot of spare time. I might make a thread just on this website.

Re: www.oldearth.org

but their objections to the Bible's inspiration are less than sound And THAT should give ALL Christians pause for concern - glad you enlightened us on it, as this makes me wonder if they don't have far more faith in science than the Bible. The author of the site was apparently a Christian when he m...

Re: www.oldearth.org

While I've never interacted with them, I got a lot of info from the site when I was first learning about OEC. If I remember, they're more of an OEC/TE site. Although they did speak favorably of Hugh Ross. The website is mainly neutral when it comes to different Old-Earth positions, although it does...

Re: Why is Richard Dawkins so popular?

Well, I'm no sociologist, but I think I'll take a few guesses as to why Richard Dawkins and New Atheism. This is just coming from my friends at school along with propaganda I've analyzed on Facebook and other Social Media websites. I seem to notice an overarching theme that is not scholarly, but pre...

Re: Atheism: Belief or Position?

I remember reading in William Lane Craig's book On Guard that animals and newborns should be considered atheists if one is going to say that it isn't a belief. What do you think of this?

Re: The Crusades

I'm sure most people's knowledge of the Crusades just boils down to "bad stuff Christians do". I often like to joke with this line: "When Christians 800 years ago go against their teachings and kill thousands of people, they represent all of Christianity. When Muslims right now follow their teaching...

Re: Did Darwin Kill God?

As I've noted before, last semester I took a course called "The Evolution-creationism Controversy" which studied the social, legal, and political impact evolution has had since Darwin's days. The description seems to basically nail it right on head, based on what I learned...The only place where an...

Did Darwin Kill God?

This is a documentary I found recently on YouTube. It was on BBC's "Darwin Season." The description at the bottom of the video says this: There are some who believe that Darwin's theory of evolution has weakened religion, fuelled in part by Richard Dawkins' publishing phenomenon The God Delusion. Co...

Re: Hi, Fetus

One more person exercising their right to bodily autonomy and self-determination based on what they feel is the best choice for them. So, let me get this straight... "bodily autonomy and self-determination" is a proper excuse to kill people now? When will we legalize rape? After all, why should we ...

Apologetics TV Show

A few weeks ago, (St. Patrick's day, to be more precise), I was talking to a Catholic priest at my Grandmother's church and he said that he could get me on local public television (probably just a few towns) in order to teach Christian apologetics. One of my dreams was to do this: to make a TV Show ...
