Idea: We should abandon the philosophical notion...
differentbutnotdissonant asked: As you're not an Aussie I feel duty-bound to inform you that the ABC (Oz TV channel) is screening a Q & A session tonight between Richard Dawkins and Cardinal George Pell, head of the Catholic Church in Australia. Should be incredibly interesting and *should* be available online. The show's actually called Q & A if you want to Google it :)

Anonymous asked: Would you say that there should be any value placed on the colloquial meaning of "Atheist"? As in, since the majority of people seem to think of Atheism as solely an active rejection of any gods, and anything less as Agnostic. Does this change the definition of Atheism since one could argue that the language has now evolved beyond the original meanings?
xombabe-deactivated20120616 asked: I'm not certain, but I'm *pretty* sure that we have enough scientific knowledge to back up the theory that the universe probably always existed. Also, if anon wishes to suggest that perhaps god always existed, then I challenge them with this David Mills' quote, "If the laws of physics alone do the job and perform all the work within our universe, then a Miracle Worker is left...
happyheathen113 replied to your post: What are your opinions on the relationship between Atheism and Agnosticism? I personally think that people who claim to Agnosticism are still unbelievers, making them “without a god”… making them Atheists, but I dunno. What do you think? A better response: There is none. Thanks dude!! I appreciate it :) AATS
happyheathen113 replied to your post: Just because things look designed does not mean they are actually designed. That’s post hoc ergo propter hoc at it’s most basic. And here’s another one, smugly ignorant anon… if the universe is so complex that it needs a creator, wouldn’t your creator have to be equally complex? Wouldn’t your creator, then, beg the same question as the universe? What created...
whyilostmyfaith asked: In response to your anon: What universe is he looking at that is 'organised' and where things are 'strategically placed'. To think the univse has order is to misunderstand cosmology, to think our planet is 'strategically placed' is to misunderstand probability, to think anything in nature or biology is ordered or strategically placed to the point where it implys a...

Anonymous asked: How can their not be enough evidence that there is a God? So, I am curious, what is your believed explanation of how we, or the whole universe for that matter, were created? How could such an organized universe, where everything is strategically placed not be created by a God? How could an infinite universe be created by something less than an infinite God? I love science too, if you care to know,...

Someone should ask me a question or tell me...
It's not that I don't like atheists
atheistme: smallgovernment: But I hate when they tell everyone they’re wrong. Like shut the hell up, youre just as bad as the Christians who damn the gays to hell. You should just let people live their own lives.. …how? When was the last time bullying from a bunch of atheists caused massive amounts of gay teens to commit suicide? Your average loud mouth atheist is generally loud...
Anonymous asked: Hi, you don't know me, and I know that you are atheist. But what if God does exist? What if he did create us, and create the world from the vast skies down to the very microscope of our cells. What if God himself created science, created the laminin in our bodies, the very molecule in our bodies that holds it together. What if God can explain everything that scientists can't seem to...
