Does Atheism Have a Burden of Proof?

December 18, 2012

0

Originally posted on An American Atheist. All too often, arguments between theists and atheists end up with theists demanding that atheists disprove God. At first glance, this doesn’t seem like too much to ask, since atheists constantly ask for theists to prove that there is a God. If atheists can’t prove that there isn’t a […]

The arrogant atheist

September 28, 2011

Originally posted on An American Atheist. “Atheists are so arrogant!” This phrase can frequently be heard on the lips of religious people.  What this accusation really boils down to is the fact that atheists, when speaking on various topics, either claim to know something based on evidence, or remain hesitant to make affirmative claims until […]

These stories are all too common, and when you see them, 9 out of 10 times it’s on Fox News.  Whether it be children touched by angels, the power of prayer, or the benefits of ancient Chinese wisdom as alternative medicine, Fox is right there with fair-and-balanced, hard-hitting journalism!

So, I’ve been patrolling a few Christian news websites in order to stay up-to-date on their wacky views regarding science, gay marriage, politics, and their overall lack of sanity.  I mostly just find drivel that’s not worth blogging about, but I occasionally find a piece so coffee-spitting ridiculous that I cannot pass it up.  Here’s […]

The videos below are parts 1 and 2 of Matt completely dismantling the arguments […]

Shelly Kagan demolishes William Lane Craig

I recently posted a debate between William Lane Craig and Bart Ehrman arguing contesting the historicity of Jesus’ resurrection.  Ehrman clearly came out on top, arguing that since an historian can only piece together the most probable account of the past, and that miracles are by definition the least probable thing that can happen, then […]

Atheists donate money to vandalized churches

June 20, 2011

Hemant Mehta, also known as “The Friendly Atheist,” needs more press.  He is smart, articulate, and knows how to give the atheist movement a positive outward appearance to those who generally have a skewed view of what it means to be an atheist–religious people. Recently, two Oregon churches were the target of vandalism by some […]
