Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

Don't worry, Harbal, you can continue to be a child and make personal insults with the apparent full blessings of the moderators on here. I'm done.

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

IC: I see you now running away from history, which is at least a sign that you know Christian history is not something that Christians can take any pride in. It undermines your claim because it proves with empirical evidence that Christianity is not where we have gotten our modern-day morals from in...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

IC: Oh, the old "associate atheists with Stalin trick." How about we mention Charles Manson, the BTK killer, and other mass murderers were Christians? Stalin never murdered anyone in the name of atheism, but in the name of communism, which remains as a theistic belief. Go look up how Marx claimed an...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

Notice the moral contrast between atheists and theists --- theists like John Locke deny atheists freedom of speech, while atheists allow everyone freedom of speech. Who is morally superior? Christians fought against freedom of speech the whole way. The First Amendment was established, solely at the ...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

I'm not sure why this did not previously post. Locke was a Christian theist who denied freedom of speech for atheists. He also denied freedom of conscience for everyone, which is what the idea behind the so-called "inalienable right" was all about ---- even the person holding the right cannot get ri...

Re: The Only Proper Function of the U.S. Federal Reserve

So, in the event of a recession, where inflation is of no concern, we should not use monetary policy to get the economy going again? Should we rely on fiscal policy instead, which takes years to implement because of political bickering and seldom accomplishes much as it is usually implemented after ...

Re: Muslims say; religious freedom for me, but not for thee.

The point of this post is that Islam is intolerant. This is factually true. One can examine the laws of every Muslim-majority nation, and one will find that in each of those nations, non-Muslims have less rights than Muslims do. In the USA, a country that the political lefties bash like brainless dr...

Re: Is national socialism an alternative?

State your economic model for national socialism. We know historically that national socialism was an economic failure. Germany during WWII was less productive in producing weapons than it was during WWI. Germany had to adopt capitalist reforms to increase its weapons manufacturing, because it was c...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

I know I stated about a month ago I was done posting on this forum, but, the other philosophy forum I left to proved to be lacking in any actual philosophical discussions. So, I'll give this forum one more try, and hopefully certain people will refrain from engaging in childish personal attacks. IC ...

Re: Utilitarianism is Unnecessarily Broad

Greta: Nazism can be "justified" by utilitarianism, as can feeding Christians to the lions, etc. All one has to do is come up with some basis for saying that the enjoyment of the majority outweighs the harm to the minority, and all is fair game under utilitarianism. It is impossible for anyone to ac...

Re: All Hail Free Market Capitalism!

See? There's the ignorant troll named Harbal right now, confirming my point.

How does an ignorant fuck like him get allowed to make nothing but personal insults to others who are trying to have a rational argument?

Re: Noam Chomsky Versus Free Speech

Skip, you seem to have a problem with reality. I watched the show, and I know for a fact Chomsky came out in favor of speech codes, which ban free speech on college campuses. Think what you want, I really don't give a damn. You support a man who denies free speech, and I don't.

Re: How do Christians Expect to Convert Atheists?

Oh, lookie, there is Harbal, yet again proudly displaying his ignorance. Christian scripture does state that Christians have an obligation to seek out converts, which is why so many of them are evangelicals, who even knock on people's doors seeking converts. But, of course, facts never matter to you...

Re: self-ownership

Christianity is at odds with self-ownership, at least some forms of it are. John Locke, a Christian, for example, advocated for inalienable rights. These so-called rights were inalienable, because even the person having them could not give them up and was stuck with them. This included the right to ...

Re: How do Christians Expect to Convert Atheists?

It's a fact that Christians claim that they need to "save" others. But, since the Bible states atheists can never be saved, it looks like Christians like you have admitted that Jesus' power is limited and not godly in any way. It's rather comical, actually.
