"Ah, my edit didn't take. I posted the above before I had read all the other replies.  I think I can understand why some folks consider science and reason to be the tool of the oppressor, because oppressors have used them to further their…"

Michael Enquist commented on Jennifer Hancock's blog post Atheism isn't enough - and it isn't very satisfying
"This is a good start. It seems strange to me that a group of people who claim to hold critical thinking in high regard need to be reminded that atheism is not a world view. It is just a small part of many different world views, as Jennifer has…"

"Unless it's big bang cosmological "science" where people, with no concern for evidence, fill gaps with hypotheses. "

"Merriam-Webster says of 'faith': "allegiance to duty or a person; something that is believed especially with strong conviction". This is a fair definition that allows not to have to wrestle with the metaphysical implications of…"

"I'm sorry, Jonathan. I have no "faith." None whatsoever. I'm not sure why you are thinking god might come down and strike someone with a lightning bolt? I do not believe in god. I also have no "faith" that I'm…"

"A satirical atheist website. Do they exist for comedic reasons? What is the purpose of any atheist website? What is the alternative and do any of us really care except for their magic claims of belief? Atheism says there is no evidence of god. …"
