Just a comment about the blog in general. You must have serious doubts about your beliefs to spend so much time obsessing about atheism.
you are dodging the arguments not answering them; and even fabricate straw man issues in case of 13.
@bubukaSeems to me like he's answering these objections just fine. Your example of #13: Charlotte states that Christians are more likely to consult mediums, then he states a study in which non-Christians are actually more likely to dabble in this. Seems like he is attacking the pertinent argument here to me. Perhaps you need to be more specific.@ErikaI'm not seeing where you get your conclusion that he doubts his own belief just because he is defending it. But, I guess an appropriate response would be that there are atheists out there who are just as eager to bash Christianity or religion in general (just take Charlotte in this story as an example), so why can't someone be here to defend the faith? But I was wondering, by your logic, are atheists like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens doubtful about their atheistic beliefs because they attack and refute Christianity and defend their positions so much?
Agreed, when attacked you defend yourself. The new Atheists are something most Christians wouldnt care or even know about but obviously a handful probably enjoy a good old intellectual stouch. Why not
@jc: okay, to be more specific: it is very clear that Dawkins and 'it's kind' (including me) are rejecting ALL the transcendent garbage, including NewAge crap, astrology, tarot cards, plus little green martians, bigfoot, chupacabra etc. Atheists are simply sceptics. To everything.I assume the author knows it perfectly well, but he claims that somehow atheists are correlating with believers of such nonsense. Classic straw manon 13: I'm not native english, so I checked Matthew 5:18 on my lang. So far I don't see what's the point. It clearly states that NOW all the rules of Old Testament are still valid. If not then someone should tell it to christians who always cite it...
Mariano:You are nothing but a religious con artist straight from the Dark ages. Atheism is not dead it is Christianity that is dead. I will prove it!The Bible is filled with horrible verses and examples of lack of morality these can be check at my website. WWW.SCIENCECLUBOFLONGISLAND.COMWhy are you lying to all the people? You are not discrediting the Evil Bible website, any fool could look these verses up and see that they are all there! Are you delusional? You claim you discredit all these sites, it is you who are discredited! You do not understand Science, you are clueless when it comes to History and you are a certified liar when it comes to the Bible!Why should anyone listen to you? Atheism is not dead, it is Christianity that is dead! The Bible has been thrown out of Public Schools, never to show its ugly face.Evolution is taught in Public Schools as the origin of man and life. Intelligent Design has been debunked, disgraced and discredited. And you have the balls to say that Atheism is dead! It is Christianity that is dead. It is about time the people knew that Christ never fulfilled his promise to return in the lifetime of his apostles as he promised. That makes Christ the asshole a fraud, Christianity the biggest hoax in humanity and you a certified fool!Let us all look at these beautiful verses in the Bible:Eat Human Feces!"And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung thatcometh out of man, in their sight. And the LORD said, Even thus shall thechildren of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I willdrive them." (Ezekiel 4:12-13).Eating Shit and Drinking Piss"But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and tothee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on thewall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?" (IIKings 18:27)You must now follow your God's orders and eat shit and drink piss!Eating your children when you are hungry!"And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This womansaid unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my sontomorrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on thenext day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son...." (IIKings 6:28-29).When are you going to start eating your children?Expose Her Breasts!"Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I will discover thyskirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and thekingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thevile, and will set thee as gazingstock." (Nahum 3:5-6).
