February 2007

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: “I don’t believe that God exists.” […]

When you as an atheist have anal sex, do you see god? Are you familiar with the logical fallacy of the complex question?

Everyone knows what you mean when you say God. It’s true that religions talk about different details of what God is like but these are technical things. The commentor was right when he said that you saying these different details meant different Gods was like saying different numbers of rabbit claws mean different definitions of […]

Hate mail

I think I need to make my position more clear. “God” or “god” or “deities” or whatever you want to call them don’t exist. It just makes no sense to say that they exist. People like you who play into the hands of religious gropus by semi-validating their aspaciotemporal beliefs but call themselves “atheists” are […]

Well, it seems like we are simply unable to agree on the supernatural vs natural distinction. You would like to preserve the possibility of existence outside space-time, while I hold that such a thing is inconceivable, unthinkable to a creature whose very cognitive ability arises from spaciotemporal relations, and is simply a linguistic malady. I […]

Originally, I wasn’t going to allow comments in this blog because I thought it would interrupt the flow of conversations. After thinking about it some more, I realized that not having comments is disingenuous given that I’m trying to get people to share their thoughts about atheism. Given this, I’ve gone ahead and added the […]

Ok, so god would need to be, at a minimum, something that is not confined by laws of nature and the empirical world, i.e. supernatural. I think I can perfectly well say “god does not exist,” because I’m still using the definition of existence we apply to any other subject of that predicate. The statement […]

Everything happens for a reason. Can you point me to any site that discusses this statement? Something smells in it bad, but what? Probably the main problem is mistaking cause for reason. mistaking “there is an explanation” for “there is a reason”, etc… I would appreciate to have some nice starting points to think about […]

You ask how I can tell someone that I don’t believe in god without defining the term — whose god don’t I believe in, mine or theirs? That’s a good question. From my perspective, since I say that I don’t believe in god since I have seen no compelling proof for the existence of a […]
