Would anyone want me to start using my instagram again?

I made one for this blog in August of 2016, never used it 😬😂 anyone actually interested in me expanding the platforms I use?

May also bring back my twitter… One thing at a time though lol

Irrational

How can you find it irrational or unnacceptable for us to believe that the universe just exists, but its totally rational and acceptable to believe a god/gods just exist…

Atheophobia on campus

Morehead State University.

In a building called Rader there was a religious hand written flyer on the cork board next to the room where SSA meets.

I support freespeech and freedom of religion so I wasn’t phased by this.

When another was added I was actually inspired by them to share some perspective as well. Im also a firm believer in equal representation.

When I added a flyer(hand written) almost word for word of a post I’ve made on here it looked pristine on the board.

Today I came in to find it crumbled and torn. The only flyer in this shape.

My response was to add another note above stating “dear whomever took to crumbling and tearing the message below: your acts display no grace, kindness, or acceptence. They say more about you and your beliefs than the ones on the paper you defiled. I hope you find a way to manage your intolerance and hate.”

If you want to assert a truth, first make sure…

If you want to assert a truth, first make sure it’s not just an opinion that you desperately want to be true.

Atheism is a conclusion, not a belief. Science…

Atheism is a conclusion, not a belief. Science is a method, not a faith. Skepticism is critical thinking, not blasphemy.

Official Atheist Cartoons challenge: Reblog th…

Official Atheist Cartoons challenge: Reblog this post with your single, best reason for why anyone outside your mind should believe in a god, and I will explain where you’re going wrong. 

  • Remember:

1. Keep your point to one single reason, and phrase it as concisely and as clearly as you can, because I don’t have all day to chase rabbits. 

2. Ensure that it is your best reason, or at least one of your best reasons. You don’t get a second chance, so play whatever cards you have now.

3. The reason must be why someone else who is not inside your mind should believe in a god, because I have no interest in arguing against your feelings or your qualia

My intention is to answer any and all responses in a single super-post a week from now.

There will be no public discussions. You give me your reason; I explain why it’s wrong. That is the sum total of interaction we will have. 

If you disagree, you can tell me over direct message. You have my word that I will answer every direct message I get from anyone who feels I have made a mistake in my response to their reblog, and if I have made some mistake, I will correct it in-post afterwards. However, I will not get into a game of reblog tag, because it won’t advance either of our arguments and would be very boring for my followers. If you fail to honour this simple arrangement, I will block you. (If your goal at the outset is to be so unpleasant and abusive that I feel like I have to block you, please tell me in advance so I can save us both a lot of time and effort.)

My goal here is not to de-convert anyone, but to provide real-world responses to real-world reasons that real-world people have for believing in a god. 

If any of this sounds sketchy to you for any reason, please don’t accept the challenge.

If no one reblogs, or the replies do not conform to the three conditions above, I won’t refer to this again. If there are hundreds of replies, expect delays.

Feel free to reblog this (or link to it) wherever you feel religious people might feel enjoy sharing their reasons for their faith.

  • Good luck! 

Brief Thought on God

Humans aren’t in the habit of applying human standards to animal behavior, so why would an infinitely greater mind apply his standards to human behavior? Who looks at the young male lion who kills the cubs of the former alpha and thinks “how inhumane”? I can’t get on board with a mind powerful enough to create universes and yet petty enough to be overly concerned with someone’s sex life and whether or not a male has foreskin on his penis or not. If you believe in any of the Abrahamic faiths, you seriously need to reconsider your current course. If a god like any of the ones conceptualized by philosophers existed, our behaviors would be utterly incapable of offending it.
