Michael Penn commented on Dan Wall's blog post Let Us Not Praise the Prosperity Gospel With Faint Damn: It’s Worse than its Theology!
"The prosperity gospel. All the preachers use it and Oral Roberts gave an airplane to a man in Texas named Ewing who taught him all about "seed faith." If you live on social security and send your money to a preacher, god will surely bless…"

Let Us Not Praise the Prosperity Gospel With Faint Damn: It’s Worse than its Theology!

“Joel Osteen’s Fake, Heretical ‘Christianity’ Isn’t Any Better Than Atheism.”That’s the title of an article from blogger Matt Walsh published yesterday on The Blaze. If Matt Walsh ever does have a thought worthy of publication, he will no mistake it for a bad cold, and there is certainly no chance The Blaze would publish anything that challenges the grade-school level…See More

Michael Penn commented on Dan Wall's blog post “The Faith of Christopher Hitchens” …In Which I Read Snake Oil
"For me there is absolutely no going back. I have seen behind the curtain. The story here on Hitchens reminds me of one I heard in my church days. A minister preached that Edison was on his death bed and his daughter came in and asked if she should…"

“The Faith of Christopher Hitchens” …In Which I Read Snake Oil

I’m starting to wonder if it isn’t the fate of prominent atheists to end up with Christian apologists for spokesmen. Okay, I don’t literally believe in fate (either), but let’s just say the pattern is starting to look a little too common.Read more here.See More

Eight Tips for Writing an Eight-Tip Advice Post (Crazy Uncle of A Bullet Point Mind)

The internet is full of pages providing us with numbers.Numbers and tips!Numbers OF tips.That’s right. The internet is full of posts containing a designated number of little advisatory gems. I don’t know how much use there is in reading these lists, but I’m convinced there must be a point to writing them. I reckon the wisdom must reside in the numbers. So, the secret to providing advice online must be to put the advice in the form of a list of useful tips. Most importantly, you have to number…See More

Argumentation and its Narrative Payoff

It’s been a long time since I read Lakoff and Johnson’s book Metaphors We Live By, but I was recently thinking the internet has surely added a lot of good material for some of its central themes. The the notion of argumentation as warfare comes to mind. In that book, they advanced the notion that a lot of the metaphors people use for argumentation are those associated with warfare and violence in general. This…See More

Bertold Brautigan commented on Dan Wall's blog post When Arguendo Argues Itself Into a Somehow
"They even go beyond pre-supposing that atheists are angry fools and shriek out their ridiculous meme that there are no real atheists. Their logic is something like this: Atheists believe in ______[fill in the blank with any scientific concept, e.g.…"

Michael Penn commented on Dan Wall's blog post When Arguendo Argues Itself Into a Somehow
"A lot of this line of thinking comes from the flaws of the believers. Without quoting scripture I will just point out what they believe. The Bible says that "the fool has said in his heart that there is no god." To the believers and…"

Loren Miller commented on Dan Wall's blog post When Arguendo Argues Itself Into a Somehow
"This is one more reason why atheists need to be OUT and vocal about their atheism.  One person asserting that he doesn't hate something that doesn't exist may not convince a believer that it's true, but a dozen such people may at…"

When Arguendo Argues Itself Into a Somehow

Pop-apologists love to tell stories about how much atheists hate God. It’s a powerful claim, not because it’s accurate, but because it’s a bit like wishing us into the cornfields. All at once everything we say and everything we think is effectively removed from consideration and we sit mute despite our best efforts well beyond the eyes and ears of the one who put us there. You can try to reason with people who make this argument, but to them you might as well be out in the cornfield after all.…See More

Gerald Payne commented on Dan Wall's blog post Today’s Kinda Loaded Question – How Do You Read a Bible?
"The bible should be read for the same reason that the showing of  the film of the Hiroshima casualties should be prescribed education; Never Again. "

Daniel W commented on Dan Wall's blog post Today’s Kinda Loaded Question – How Do You Read a Bible?
"Spud, good point. The bible is kind of a neolithic answer to modern video games. Kill kill kill kill."
