    What makes Christianity moral?

    Sounds to me to be more like mere sycophantic obedience than morality. But ok.

    Present a BETTER explanation for our existence than God

    Just jumping in and pasting some links to do with some research on the evolution of DNA and the genetic code: http://www.biology-direct.com/content/2/1/14/ http://www.nature.com/hdy/journal/v100/n4/abs/6801086a.html...

    Present a BETTER explanation for our existence than God

    But why? You have christian scientists like Michael Behe, and even apologists like William Lane Craig who can't seem to shake the evidence for it. Why do you? I just want to know your reasons for it.

    Present a BETTER explanation for our existence than God

    ...What? Why... ? Does that mean you're a creationist then? Explain your position on evolution more fully then.

    Row over Pope's remarks about atheists and Nazis

    But alas, the papacy has no shame.

    Present a BETTER explanation for our existence than God

    I'm sorry, but at this point, I know you never even tried to understand what people are trying to explain to you. You're just rigidly set in your beliefs. A lot of things "happen by chance". It's nonsense and a completely silly anthropocentric view of the universe. The universe doesn't give a...

    Present a BETTER explanation for our existence than God

    I didn't read through everything but you pretended to debunk someone's post about the universe being eternal. While it's true that the universe as we know it started with the big bang approximately 13.75 billion years ago, we don't know if the constituents which would later give rise to this are...

    Religion poisons everything, how does it 'poison' you?

    As you say that, Godisabullet, that's precisely what I interpret from the phrase "religion poisons everything". While I never read that book by Hitchens, myself, I intend to do it one day when I'm actually living in a country that has a bookstore and doesn't take months for me to receive ordered...

    Christian God - The Problem of Evil

    Well, I was dealing mostly with the internal consistency of Christianity (and I suppose Abrahamic faiths in general). So the definition of evil and attributes of God are assumed as what is stated from their doctrines. In any case, I've done some research into the matter and it appears as if...

    Christian God - The Problem of Evil

    Hello LOR, I've been sitting around in my miserable little life and musing about the problem of evil and how Christians seem to be either completely oblivious to it, or manage to reconcile it with their belief in their God. Now from what we know of the Christian God, he is tri-omni...

    Can atheists enjoy life?

    We can probably enjoy life better than people who have silly restrictions on natural urges like sex and specific foods and willing to give up their Sunday mornings to listen to some man tell us his particular spin of a verse from a bronze age book. EDIT: Granted, I am cold, angry and miserable...

    William Craig on the absurdity of life without God

    Now, I may have misconstrued his argument but to me it seems as if perhaps Craig believes that because God is eternal, this automatically gives him purpose and meaning. Now an example comes to mind, and this is the one of Deism, which states that God creates the universe then disappears. Let's...

    Why "Who designed the designer" doesn't seem to work anymore

    We are all fairly familiar with the "Watch Maker analogy" which is often invoked by Theists to support the view that the ordered complexity of life required a designer. Indeed they say, we look at a watch, or any machine and we can tell it was designed. The machine has certain criteria by which...

    Verses in the Bible that relate to slavery

    I haven't read the bible in it's entirety so I couldn't help you, but I know only certain sections of the Old Testament were done away with in the New Testament, and the Ten Commandments weren't one of those things. I might even recall a part of the bible where Jesus condones a lot of Old...

    William Craig on the absurdity of life without God

    Well, yes that's true and is the beautiful irony of it. :P But the argument is on the whole hypothetical situation that there was a God.

    William Craig on the absurdity of life without God

    So, I just came across this somewhat old video by Dr. William Craig (done back in April), on the topic of the meaning of life without God. He's a very skilled debator, I must admit, and he does have some fine points. Note that he isn't trying to say this is proof of God (infact, he even...
