Let me start with the second half of our conversation, that being the conversation on Morals: (I’ll respond separately to the Origin statements for ease.) Let me first clarify what I mean by “Objective Moral Values:” Values which are right or wrong, whether or not anybody believes in them. For example: If Nazi Germany had […]

I’ll do my best to respond in a logical and somewhat ordered way so that other readers can follow. Hope it makes sense: Let’s start with the Question of Origin: To quote you: “I say that God does not exist “so far as I can tell” because to the limit of my experience and knowledge […]

Excellent…now we are getting into the meat! You are bringing up some classical arguments and some new ones which I would like to address. I am glad to hear that you are in constant search of the truth, as we owe ourselves that at least! Here are my response to some of your points: 1) […]

In response to the first round of comments on 2Q, I’ve updated the pre-publication copy. For those of you who have already ordered it, don’t worry — the changes are largely cosmetic at this point. They did increase the page count, however, so the price has gone up to $8.26 (still just slightly above the […]

Thanks for the response. I think maybe we’ll get to the point where we are arguing semantics on the atheism definition, so we’ll agree to disagree. I do notice that you are certainly strong in your stance as to what you believe and don’t. I’d like to dig deeper. Author Phillip Johnson says that “one […]

I have just finished reading your pre-copy of your 2Q book and I have a comment of some significance. I have to disagrew ith your idea that people would all agree that their philosophies should not contradict themselves. Religious people do this all the time! Atheists will agree with you, but theists will not and […]

Hello to the site host and his dedicated readers. I have taken an interest in your site and wanted to contribute some. After browsing through some of your posts and other “atheist” blogs (you’ll understand the quotations later), I thought it may be appropriate to help define the terms by which many of these debates, […]

Hey, I just checked my e-mail today, and apparently someone who has read my blog has decided that I should challenge you because you’re “smug” (as they put it in their e-mail to me). Actually, I started reading your website and it seems that, despite my theism and your atheism, we both share a passion […]

It would be easier to help you with comments on 2Q if it was possible to download the text. I agree. My problem is that a couple of publishers have told me that they would not be interested in considering the manuscript if it had been made available previously as a download. I’m still investigating […]
