"That's good to know, Michael, Maybe I do have a chance to win after all. I'll buy two tickets next week."

"God controls the lottery just like he controls everything else. That's why everything in our world is random chance."

"To me this question makes as much sense as "Does Cinderella control the lottery?" Duh. Waste of brainspace."

Does God control who wins the lottery?

Does God control who wins the lottery? The answer is, OF COURSE, providing that He/She/It actually exists in form and function as described and defined by any of the current religions that are based on the belief that a God with the supernatural powers, human behavioral orientation, and intense interest in the conduct and outcome of individual and collective human affairs actually exists. After all, god is reputed to know and care about every sparrow that falls to the ground. So if that is the…See More

"All very good points. I like to write but I don’t have much time to that these days. This blog made sense when I wrote it, and it still sort of makes sense to me, but in a more basic way. It did not include enough regard for the eccentricities…"

"Zealots cannot be reasoned out of their belief by facts. They will not give up the beliefs because a prophecy failed. Christians have been expecting the end of the world for 2000 years, and it failed scores of times. But belief persists."

Deryl L Fisher commented on Martin A. Moe, Jr's blog post So, you want to defeat ISIS...
"I don't believe the answer is more killing. I leave that to the Christians.  We should withdraw from their countries and leave them to their ways instead of trying to impose our ways on them. If Bush Jr hadn't destroyed Iraq do you…"

Michael Penn commented on Martin A. Moe, Jr's blog post So, you want to defeat ISIS...
"Martin, it does seem defeating ISIS would almost be like defeating a religion. In our current politically correct world nobody wants to say this. We keep hearing that we are not fighting religion and that we are not "at war with Islam."…"

So, you want to defeat ISIS...

So, you want to defeat ISIS...In order to defeat ISIS, it is necessary, very necessary, to destroy the foundation of extremist, fundamentalist Islamic religious belief. It is possible to do this by attacking the ISIS stronghold of the city of Dabiq in northern Syria, decisively defeating protecting ISIS forces, and estabilishing and defending a peaceful city open to moderate beliefs of all religions and areligious views as well. This would require a coalition of many countries, including middle…See More

Michael Penn commented on Martin A. Moe, Jr's blog post Perception and Religion
"Wonderfully put, Martin. It took many years for me to see that religion is a human construct. The strange thing is that we all see things at different times. That's because we are not all in the same place at the same time. My religious friends…"

Perception and Religion

Something we seldom realize or consider when we take a position on, well, pretty much everything, but especially on matters of politics, culture, and religion is that, to use an old and hackneyed phrase, ‘Perception is Reality”. And human perception depends on many things, including the culture that formed the human mind, the environment we occupy, the current state of human knowledge (that changes over time), the early training and indoctrination of the individual, the genetic code that forms…See More

Authority!

Without a structure of authority that guides group behavior in the soft, delicate, physically defenseless, human species; cooperative life , even primitive cooperative human life would not have been possible and the species Homo sapiens would never have evolved. Cooperative behavior was and is essential for the…

Quit claiming to be a man of science and an atheist if you're going to post about how you had a vivid dream about gawd. Why would you do that? There are better sites to troll, and really you guys are seriously annoying, and you give a bad name to theists everywhere.

Hi Martin. I hear you--both on learning to navigate this site and on your dismissal of religion and leanings toward science. About the same time (actually 1954), when I was 11, I saw Saturn through a telescope and it blew me away. Leonardo da Vinci became my idol. Eventually, I became a science teacher which gave me a grand opportunity to impress the subject on young minds and indirectly diminish religion. I had to walk a fine line there!

Anyway, continue to explore the site and jump in any time.
