Conversational Atheist blog

Charlie Hebdo

  Even though I've been away from actively writing this blog/website for a while now, it's never left my heart (and the occasional technical glitch or new comments will send me here to diligently deal with any issues). I just wanted to post my support in the recent tragedy. As alluded in my previous blogpost, […]

Strategies for dealing with crazies

There have been a considerable amount of violent protests around the world in the past week or so. So, what to do? It is wise to think about whether your actions are rewarding or punishing actions. For example, if laws were successfully passed in Western countries that restricted free speech against the Quran or Mohammad […]

Atheist Response to Rabbi

The Huffington Post recently posted An Open Letter to the Atheist Community by Rabbi Adam Jacobs. The reason behind his letter is "so that we can understand each other better and possibly "walk back" some of the clamorous dialogue." Sounds reasonable enough -- let's see where this goes. I'll be quoting from his letter throughout […]

Can morality be scientific?

Image via Wikipedia There has been some back-and-forth in the comments of my blog, and I wanted to let the discussion out for a bit more air. Jason has been arguing that he thinks that Sam Harris fails to make the case for a scientific morality. I think my criticism is more damaging to Harris' […]

Homosex is immoral -- an atheist responds

Image via Wikipedia I recently walked through a large hostile crowd that had formed around a small group of Christians holding signs talking about the evils of homosexuality. The people surrounding the sign-bearers were largely upset about the signs -- probably a number of Christians, and definitely a number of atheists, as well. The interactions […]

Bill - I was raised Catholic and, while I can trace my skepticism all the way back to the first grade - I was also always engaged by the Big Questions and they, at least, provided a kind of 'forum' (padded cell?) for this interest to be addressed (funneled)

Nevertheless, I went through a process that got me here in my thinking. And, while I do not believe certain types of fundies can be 'saved' - my 75 year old Dad is beginning to turn the corner... (to be continued)

Nothing like a good argument--religious or not.

Thanks for the invite Nerd. But now I'm forced to wonder - was I invited because you believe I might offer valuable insight into how to win an argument, or because you think I need to taught how? :^)

Actually, I am very pleased to discover that persuasive argument is being discussed as well as logical argument. In fact, logos can, at times, be the least persuasive way to bring someone to a logical conclusion.

I find that a variation of Sam Harris's short reply to Rabbi Schmuley Boteach is probably the best way to refute Christianity. Seen here.

Basically, we don't have to prove the absence of god; all we have to do in order to reject Christianity is show that there are bad reasons to take the Gospel at face value.

Tools for skeptics:

What's the Harm in superstitious or religious beliefs? How about the harm in just a lack of critical thinking? Here's a crapload of case histories on why these beliefs can be harmful:
