Issues that Embarrass Christianity

Posted by:

Even though I primarily argue with Atheists, this particular article will likely alienate the majority of Christians as well. However, I am not writing any of this because I have something against the people that hold these views or belong to these groups but simply because I have participated in enough conversations with atheists to see these themes come up again and again.

So basically after hundreds of discussions with Atheists several arguments against Christianity seem to come up over and ...

The Supernatural is a Logical Implication of Naturalism

Posted by:

To many atheists the word “Supernatural” is synonymous with Magic. And of course Magic is synonymous with “Nonsense” making any further discussion somewhat pointless. If however naturalism is correct, it will eventually lead to the supernatural. It’s quite simple actually:

Most religions of the world believe that the human soul is itself a supernatural entity without which out biological bodies would be insufficient to account for our self-awareness. Naturalists of course reject this view. To them every aspect of who we ...

Divine Genocide III

Posted by:

I am finally able to sit down and write this and I apologize for the long delay.

In this post I will try to answer the question regarding which of three views, if any, I am arguing for.

The three views as described by Charles and Clifford are as follows:

a) That since God gave us life He could take it away any time regardless of any other factors.

b) That people are guilty because of Adam’s sin regardless of whether they have done ...

I already mentioned that the topic can be broken into three parts: 1) God’s general right to kill, 2) God’s right to kill groups of people ...

How is Atheist Morality Derived?

Posted by:

Many theists consider the argument from morality a very effective argument against atheism. I don’t. I believe it is perfectly possible for atheists to develop a sound moral framework (it wouldn’t be an argument even if it wasn’t). I have some idea of how I would do it if I were an atheist.

But I have yet to hear any atheist give me a good explanation of naturalistic morality so I am curious in any atheist has one. Now I am ...

Atheistic Fallacies

Posted by:

I generally respect Atheism as a concept. When life’s difficulties hit home, they certainly bring with them doubts regarding the existence of God. And, more than this, the religions of the world including Christianity tend to be filled with nonsensical beliefs as well as deplorable actions mixed in with the good. I often say that Atheism is God’s gift to the intellectually lazy religiosity of modern times.

But I do have a problem with atheists when it comes to some of ...

Divine Genocide

Posted by:

This is a continuation of a conversation that was started on the blog of one of my favorite atheist podcasts, Reasonable Doubts. You can find it here.

———

I am focusing on the one point because it is the primary point under debate. Everything else is secondary and entirely dependent on what is concluded about the primary point. The primary question under discussion here is whether God is reprehensible for taking life. The tendency is to muddy the waters ...
