Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I put to you a very simple task, which you are evading: to speak about Atheism from Atheism. It's your own ideology, from your own ideology. Have I NOT told you that it's NOT an ideology for me? Why are you ignoring this and insisting that I answer your question as it suits you? But you're afraid t...

Re: What is more evil than an evil theist?

I think some of the writings in The Bible were warnings to theists about what they could become -- yep: Amos written when the Jews were on top of the world and filled with Pride and the privalege of being God's chosen - amos said - be Humble and that being god chosen is a responibility and God will...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

A rationally consistent Atheist can say nothing at all about the concepts good or evil . Neither is a term that has any relevance or reality in the kind of universe Atheism conceives . It would mean that a rationally consistent Atheist would simply have to say I know nothing at all about good or ev...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

So that would then make it amoral by definition would it not as in neither moral or immoral Not quite. I'm not speaking of the rightness or wrongness of being an Atheist , but of the logical consequences for someone who has already set their cap that way, and wants to live rationally and consistent...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Atheism does not rationalize any morality at all . Round and round we go. Yep. I knew you'd run. A simple question, and you can't get there. Scared? Maybe. Not thinking logically? Definitely, whether it's from fear or inability, I can't say. But you're trying to redirect again. Theism's not the top...

Re: "A cause is a good way to keep us young and feeling that we are a part of a greater whole."

For me, right now, it's my thirteen year old. Makin' him into a self-responsible, self-directing, human being is just about a full-time job. You are a little late as his peers have now taken over most of his teaching. That does not mean you have lost all influence of course, you always have some wi...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I hear you buddy. A cause is a good way to keep us young and feeling that we are a part of a greater whole. If we are to live on spaceship earth, we should work to protect and purify it. Protectors are cranky as we hate all that would jeopardize that which we love. I would be upset with myself a lo...

Re: I hear ya...

I used to be a work in progress, now I'm just old & cranky. Mebbe the only reason I post anywhere is just as a big middie finger, a reminder that some of us haven't been domesticated.

When I can be bothered to: I make appeals to reason, to common sense. That most folks don't wanna reason, and have almost no common sense, is why, nowadays, I mostly can't be bothered.
