Peace be with you.
Discussing the validity of Genesis, and the non-compatibility of the evolution theory with Christianity. A response to 'Evolution and Christianity.'
Discussing the theory of evolution and Christianity and why the two do not conflict.
A story, a moral, a game, and a question no one wants to answer.
An article about why atheism isn't a logical viewpoint and why I'm Christian.
We Christian brothers and sisters need to shape up.
I thought this was good
Atheists always try to say Christians are senseless crazy people with bad temper issues, yet when I go to the Atheist group, the first things I see are a bunch of comments/pics making rude, spiteful & ridiculous statements with questionable grammar.
The irony is going to kill me.
Don't forget their unsourced claims, pseudohistorical images (which is ironic because they accept what they say without question), irrational hatred towards others for believing differently from them and their obsession with religion.
They're not as "free" as they claim to be. In fact they remind me a lot of religious fundamentalists and extremists and the sad part is that they are blinded to their own behavior.
I'm not even mad at any of them. I just pity them.
Thankfully, they're a minority but I reckon atheists on the internet do a lot more bad for their philosophy than good when half of them happen to be pretentious dicks who claim to support a scientific world-view but deny history if it happens to have a religious correlation (i.e existence of Jesus, Buddha, Moses) not to mention the pseudohistorical arguments they preach (i.e dark ages being caused by religion and not the collapse of Rome).
Not all atheists are like that but many on the internet (at least) seem to be.
Contrary to some of the atheists here, I don't hate them. I just pity them and (the others) who have a huge chip on their shoulder against religion.
There are other atheists who can be quite reasonable like Chris Stedman.
So don't let the venom, spite and irrational hatred of the internet bunch define your view of all of them, otherwise we'll be guilty of generalizing just like they do.
Dude just ignore it, you know the right path so it should not affect you. It is their predicament and ultimate fate in the end. Do not let them taunt you or get you angry cause that is what they want to do. They are trying to lure people in with their heckling and insults then pinpoint the retaliators as "prime examples" of their deluded perspective on religious ideology and Christianity when it is just people who are upset and defending the very foundations their lives are built upon which is a human trait no matter what ideology they are.
I know to ignore it, but the amount of irony they create is just...lol.
haha yeah true
A friend of mine, who was a hardline atheist in high-school, became an agnostic out of spite after he read some of Dickie's more extreme stuff.
I've also ran into other skeptics who panned "The God Delusion", one dude I met even said it was the only book he ever threw out. I reckon it struck a nerve with some moderate and well-rounded secularist's.
For a man devoted to his anti-theism, it's odd to see him talk like this.

I actually read some of it in its PDF format earlier this year. It was the most pretentious ******** I have ever heard. Sure, I agree that Dawkins is well spoken but that's about it. Get past his writing and there's no substance, no intellectual argument, just a bitter hatred against established religion.
When he actually tackles theism, his arguments are weak and mainly orientated to the characteristics of God. He says deism is logical but practically goes onto say that we shouldn't hold that position just because.
When addressing the fine-tuning of the universe, he says it's "implausible" to believe it was God just because:
When attempting to refute the Five Ways of Aquinas, he avoids addressing them altogether and dares to accuse Aquinas of making the ad infinite fallacy (something atheism philosophy itself relies upon with the idea that's there's an infinite chain of universes creating one another, the Prime Mover and just plain logic says that there must be an ultimate start).
Rather than "exposing the flaws" in these classical arguments, he just gives his belief and opinion on the matter (he also shows that he doesn't understand the Five Ways) whilst all the other chapters of the book are literally entire rants against religion. Only Chapter 3 and 4 is dedicated to theism completely.
He's a pseudo-intellect. Write well enough though and you're bound to convince someone that your position is the intellectual one even if you are just painting over bull crap.
