"Thanks, LeRon. Having a Kindle reader, I went to Amazon and ordered a sample of one of your many titles. During twelve years in Catholic schools I heard a lot of theology and freeing myself required some effort. I've been able to tell people…"

" Hi Tom, yes, good idea. Basically it is a discussion of the reasons why (and the process whereby) I moved from being an evangelical theologian to an atheist. For me, a big part of the process was recognizing the deep connection between some of…"

Michael Penn commented on LeRon Shults's blog post New book on Atheism
"Nobody can say with absolute certainty that no god or gods exist. To make that claim you would have to produce evidence. This would be the same evidence we want the theists to produce, but they just do not get it. They answer you back from them…"

"Michael, I have to disagree with you on this one. Sorry. I'm not understanding this discussion. You either believe in god or you do not. The entire position of agnosticism, and there’re many varieties from strong to weak, claims there…"

"Hi Napolean, yes, the book is very academic and not at all for a general readership, so you probably would not enjoy it (except, perhaps for the introduction and conclusion). However, my other book on "Theology after the Birth of God"…"

LeRon Shults commented on LeRon Shults's blog post New book on Atheism
"Hi Michael, yes, I agree and I do not believe in the supernatural or gods. Most people do believe in them, I argue, because of evolved cognitive and coalitional tendencies that lead to over-dectecting agents in the natural world and over-protecting…"

"Sorry. I'm not understanding this discussion. You either believe in god or you do not. You either believe in the suernatural or you do not. For the vast majority of my life I was a believer. I was even a lay preacher. About a year and a half…"

Luara commented on LeRon Shults's blog post New book on Atheism
"The idea is that atheism (belief in no gods and no God) was made possible, in a sense, by the emergence of theism itself Do you mean "strong atheism" or simply the lack of belief in supernatural entities?  People have been religious…"

LeRon Shults commented on LeRon Shults's blog post New book on Atheism
"Hi Luara, yes, I think it has poetic force too. The idea is that atheism (belief in no gods and no God) was made possible, in a sense, by the emergence of theism itself in the wake of what is called the "axial age" (800-200 BCE). The…"
