Hate mail

I’m reading the bull shit you have on this site about weather the followers of Jesus Christ are stupid or not and I want to know where the hell you get off putting yoruself as judge and jury over the saved when you haven’t even got the common sense to stop yourself from burning in […]

12 hours later, here I am back on my keyboard — not that it proves I am necessarily here, or that my universe exists! So, your clarifying statements, with which I largely agree: #1, 2 and 3: I understand that you are oppen to the possibility that there are rational explanations for specific religion; however, […]

I’d like to thank you for replying to my comment so quickly, it’s very interesting to have someone with which I can have a rational conversation with about the topic, and I’m so used to – being from a largely non-religious part of Australia – having my views confirmed by my peers that I have […]

After perusing your site, I came across an article from a visitor who was ashamed that he immediately thought less of religious people. This caused me to challenge my own previously steadfast beliefs. Am I wrong to think all religious people are stupid? After some soul-searching I discovered my view: that anyone who believes in […]

Well said. But point is, I AM a student who is an atheist and I AM boycotted by most students in my school. There’s graffiti on my lockers, any books lying about, snide remarks in the corridors (most just slinker away, leaving the corridor empty), I’m totally ignored by the students, sometimes teachers and all. […]

I promised you some links on Kierkegaard and K.E. Løgstrup in order to shower some light on how modern Danish theologians actually take the critique of religion very seriously in their arguments. Following is a brief description of the main points these two fellows are making in adherence to the debate on this site. But […]

Hi, I’m 15, from England and at my school we are forced to take a half course in R.E. Personally, I am very angry about this as I am also an atheist. I asked my teacher if we would ever be studying Atheism and she told me that I have to continue R.E into 6th […]

Hmmm. I did make a sweeping generalisation of vocab when saying that ‘time did not exist before Big Bang’, but my point was that with ‘such people’, as that writer, it’s better to that we don’t start of with the spin of particles and debates about their existence because it will not go into their […]

Sheesh. I can point out a few discrepancies in that correspondence with the ‘Young Girl’. She obviously has no working knowledge of science, and is still trying to bring it in. Albert Einstein never said ‘every action has an equal and/or opposite reaction’. Newton did. And it’s not and/or it is and. Also, opposite reaction […]

Thanks! Reason 2 was exactly what I was looking for! More specifically the line: “These people may gain more from religion than they might lose by rationally examining their beliefs.” If the advantages of religion outway the disadvantages for some people then it is perfectly rational for them to choose to be religious. I can […]
