Nothing from nothing

A comment was posted to the Evidence for atheism thread that I think is worth responding to because it comprises many common anti-atheist arguments. I’ve broken the original comment up to keep my responses in context, but have not edited it. The world is far too complex to be created out of nothing. Something can’t […]

Faith in atheism

First off let me start off by apologizing. It was hard for me to not start off with a smart remark so per request I’ll tone down the humor. “As an aside regarding your example, humans are scientifically classified as apes.” So we are apes? I don’t think so, at least not in the sense […]

How prayer works

If you can have a lot of people praying for you then maybe you need morepeople praying to receive God’s blessing. It’s not like American Idol and the person with the most votes wins. You just have […]

Faith in atheism

I apologize for being “nasty” last time, I think frustration was setting in. Anyway I’ve tried cheering up the mood by being a little more “smart” and funny hope you like it. “we can have either an infinite stretch of time or cause always preceding effect, but not both” So what is time? Isn’t it […]
