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 […]

I just had the granddaddy of batshittery as a reply to me today on youtube.

Behold the quote:
I think A-theism is a religion because the main resource of our universe is irony. I believe A-theism because I can. I believe that A-theism is also an opinion.

Ya hear that? The main resource of our universe is irony.

@Proudmumma atheist:
I personally don't see it as debating when I go "seeking" confrontation say on youtube or a forum, or face to face. I see it as Educating, or enlightening them. Of course like you, if they confront me with their 4th grade educated minds, then I will defend my position like an iron clad wall defending against a cat furiously scratching against it. Not damaging, just rather annoying xD.

Ya, you're right for the most part proudmumma.I myself look at it like a hobby and really enjoy the thrill of a confrontation with someone who thinks they have all of the answers and then realize that they don't. It's fun to hear the wildly varying explanations of difficult bible verses and other religious issues.

Does God Have a Future?

A 30-minute edited version of this debate will air late this evening on ABC Nightline’s Faceoff. Or, if you prefer to see the full 90-minute debate, you can watch it online now. The debate featured Michael Shermer and Sam Harris on one side with Deepak Chopra and Jean Houston on the other side.

Wait a second...
Somewhere the point of argumentation got lost its not about winning. Its about the art of sound, valid and creative argument. This art is lost on laymen theist. (who is usually the target, not the theologians)The laymen theist isn't arguing he talks hes attempting conversion. It may seem like an argument because emotions get boiled but its not. The atheist may very well being using the tool box of argumentation but the theist is not. Arguing needs two actors, who are fully aware there is an argument at hand.

I'm selling my guitar if anyones interested. I don't want to do this, but I have no choice.

Agreed. My first thoughts upon reading about Dunning-Kruger were about the Tea-Bagger movement...

The Dunning-Kruger effect explains ALL of Sarah Palin's base. ;)
