    Frank Peretti On Atheism

    anna.xanga.com/70328771/item/ When I was a Christian, I read a couple of his books. Although I halfway enjoyed them, I can't say that he is the greatest writer. He tells interesting stories-or at least that is what I remember. This is a common argument aimed at atheists. No matter how we answer it, it keeps getting asked. The question is not really, how can atheist be good but why would they be good? How do atheists decide what is good? This is my opinion and mine only. I believe that humans evolved to be social. We need each other. Like it or not, we are dependent on one another for survival. It makes sense to want a peaceful society. Alturism makes sense because it helps the entire community survive. A lot of morals are actually very logical when you think about it. It doesn't make sense, for example, to kill off the oldest members of society because they offer knowledge and experience to the younger generation. Studies have even shown that the presence of grandmothers helps children survive to adulthood. Morality is actually rational So, atheists have to play by rules that Christians do not have to use. I should define and explain where my morals come from but Peretti doesn't have to do the same. Continued in next post

  3. [link=http://www.patheos.com/blogs/badcatholic/2012/05/3-arguments-atheists-arent-allowed-to-use-anymore.html]Three Arguments Atheists Aren't Allowed to Use Any More[/link] Exactly what it says on the tin. I'll actually give him this one, it's a stupid argument, but while I do think that it is human nature to believe in a higher power, I do not think that babies are born thinking in a specifically religious way, as he thinks. The fun is in reasons 2 and 3. Ugh. Where to begin? Actually, in fact, many atheists--and in fact people of all religious persuasions--DO use this as an actual argument. While I do think that the Protestant churches have just as high, if not higher, rates of molestation than Catholic churches, and it speaks to their undue amount of influence that they haven't been scrutinized as closely, the blog author misses the point. They are not upset that the molestations happen by priests, per se, but that the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church allows them to have access to their targets, and then protects them when the law gets on their trail. Also, Hitler was not an atheist. What is this I don't even...? I follow online atheists and I have NEVER heard this argument. I'm reasonably well versed in the lay version of quantum physics, as much as I can be without a degree, and I'm not even sure what he's getting at. I think he's trying to argue that the theory of black body radiation proves the Genesis story, but doesn't realize that a) most black body light takes place outside of the visual spectrum, probably not what Genesis was talking about and there has to be matter to emit that black body radiation, so the light can't come out of no where, as he seems to think. Fundies should learn that they usually sound stupid when they try to use science as evidence for Biblical beliefs. Edited to unbork the quotes.

    Atheist prevention

    God I love internet trolls
  5. The dumbest thing I've ever seen on Facebook: I don't even know where to begin. Why do people spout such bullshit about atheism? Why assume we're all idiots or rebels without causes? This comes after my mother told me that I turned "extreme" by not believing in God. Like, what the fuck? That's like saying people who don't believe in unicorns are extreme, and are rebelling against unicorns when they really do believe in them. I'm split on whether this should go in Snark or Chatter, so if it pleases you mods, feel free to move it.
  6. The radio commercial for this was funny. It said "Please be aware, no babies will be eaten, no churches will be burnt." I had not idea that Fox news tried to get this canceled. Because the article deals with religions reaction to the event, I included it on the Quiver of Snark. For anyone who will be near Fort Bragg on the 31rst, it is a free event.

    Atheism And Anger

    I hesitated to ask this question. Several times I wrote out this thread only to erase my post. On the thread about the former fundie pastor, it was mentioned that he was angry. I didn't see the anger in his writings. It is possible that I have a blind spot. Here is my question. What makes an atheist sound angry to you? Is it criticizing Christainity in any way or something specific? Could you provide links? The reason that I'd perfer links instead of quotes is because I want to read the statements in context. Although if you only have a quote, that is fine too. I've put off reading Dawkins because I've been told that he is angry.
  8. Oh boy. Apparently, in addition to not believing in evolution or the principles of basic geology, Christians also don't believe in the water cycle. twitpic.com/7z17zc

    Ravi Zacharias On Atheism

    http://www.ligonier.org/learn/articles/gods-dupes/ I thought some of you might find this interesting. It is an article on RC Sproul's site by Ravi Zacharias I'm not certain if Zacharias means that Hitchens wanted religion outlawed or if he means that Hitchens hoped that rational thought would eventually make religion obsolete. This is not an uncommon criticism of atheism. Some religious people assume that not believing as they do results in depression and emptiness. It does not. As far as denying evil, I'd like to see any proof that he has that atheists are less likely to acknowledge that hurting innocent people is wrong. I am not done reading the post so I'll comment on the rest of it when I'm done. edited because I thought the article was by RC Sproul.
  10. An 'Engineer' explains how millions of jars of peanut butter disprove evolution every day! I'm not gonna bother arguing with the video, I posted it purely for the humor.
  11. My younger sister had just started high school this year, and she attends a Catholic high school. For the past few days she's been telling me about her rather, slightly crazy theology teacher. Here are few quotes from said teacher: "Not believing in God is unnatural." "Atheists are insecure! The only reason they don't believe is because something bad happened to them!" It shocked me that she's made these claims. I know my sister attends a Catholic school, but I attended a Catholic middle school, and none of my religion teachers have ever said anything like this. Statements like these make me so frustrated because it's so one-sided and generalized. Quite frankly, I know a number of atheists who stopped believing due to the simple fact that they simply no longer believed. Most of them are happy, well-adjusted people. Being agnostic, I want to know what her teacher thinks of them.

    In superstition we trust

    I love it, hits the nail on the head.......
  13. I don't know if this has been posted before, sorry if it has, feel free to close/move this topic. I just saw this last night myself. Did anyone catch it as well? Penn Jillette was on Piers Morgan Tonight debating about religion, atheism, and tells why he named his daughter Moxie Crimefighter. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/1 ... 28761.html I thought it was an interesting insight. I know for a fact that Penn Jillette is openly atheist, but I've never heard him discussing about religion before. And of course Piers Morgan is very trustworthy with everything he discusses. Thoughts?

    Atheist Misogyny

    I thought this was interesting, a woman active in the Atheist movement was propositioned by a male conference attendee in a slightly creepy way shortly after a presentation she gave about being objectified by male activists. She then blogged about the experience. There has been a huge backlash against her, including some snark by Dawkins. I find it interesting because for me it perfectly illustrates what seems to happen to a western woman with some privilege who dares to complain about any sort of sexism. It's the same old "suck it up, because other women have it worse" canard. This also strikes me as another form of fundie-ism. I have linked to the Alternet article. http://www.alternet.org/newsandviews/ar ... age=entire
  15. explainthisathiests.tumblr.com/ I REALLY hope this is a poe site, but considering how some of our favorite fundies act, it honestly wouldn't surprise me if they were serious. Anyway, if you click, it's... really crazy. It's fundie, racist, and apparently hates the Rugrats.
