Human soul

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

Euro: Looks Like a Duck, Quacks Like a Duck

Any diet that consists of fewer calories going in than you are burning off will cause weight loss.  Some people find one or another such diet to be easier to adhere to, probably having to do with their food preferences.  BUT Atkins, Zone, "Blood Type" and other such diets' explanations for why they are the best and work best are the quacky parts.  Head-to-head comparison trials have not shown that the special claims made for Atkins and others are borne out.  Watch Penn & Teller's episode(s) on diets.

As strange as this is going to sound, a lady I met in a park bathroom told me about FFRF, and I had to check it out.

Randy, I went on the Atkins diet on the advice of a dietician. I was very faithful to it. Learned how to be disciplines as I weighed out food and became familiar with the amounts. Stuff like that. I got very sick, blood tests revealed a whole lot of problems, including anemia ... suprise! 

Anyway I was put on a strict diet of less meat and more balanced. It worked. 

So, I guess there is something to each person is different. There was a book about blood type and diet, can't remember its title or authour just yet ... it will come to me. 

I am glad it worked for you and you feel healthier using it. If you were on my diet, you may not do so well.

Writing a book suggesting things for young people to think about is a precarious assignment.  Using philosophy as a framework might seem to make it even more problematic.  I think, however, and it took me a long time to figure it out, that this is exactly the framework that will work.  I used a similar technique to teach Intro to Philosophy in a women's prison for three years, and it worked amazingly well.

Tim, I wouldn't call the Atkins diet a "quack". I used to think that, but no more, once I investigated and used it. But, that's not the point of my original comment.

Chris, I'll check out your book. Thanks.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 22, 2015 at 8:17pm

Chris Brockman , I just downloaded your book and look forward to reading it. A quick glance through it seems to contain the kinds of questions some young people ponder. Thanks for writing this.

Some atheists have other beliefs that need to be challenged, esp health-related delusions.  I have met atheists who are anti-vaxxers, believe that AIDS was created by the CIA, and the stories of promoters of quack diets like Sears, Atkins etc.

I don't enjoy destroying anyone's sensibilities, per se. I do very much enjoy giving people, and especially young people, better ways to think because, if you think about it, religion doesn't make good sense.

Offending religious sensibilities is one of my favorite activities.
