This thread again.
Since it is virtually impossible for anyone with religious belief to objectively look at the notion of religion, their various histories, and actual scientific observations, using things like reason don't work.
Regardless of whether you have any good arguments for there bein...

No[quote]This is not to say that religious people are better or worse than non-believers[/quote]
I said you don't have to look at the actions, the tenets alone show that it isn't necessarily the morally superior position, unless you want to cherry-pick certain parts of the bible. I am not saying th...

One group allows you, and expects you, to be a horrible sinner, capable of murdering, raping, stealing, etc. and still allowed to get into heaven with a simple repentance before death. This means that the most evil people that ever lived could be saved on their deathbed, while someone who simply gre...

Interesting, but I think at this point humanity will survive anything thrown at us. And we aren't too far from having self-replicating cyborgs that can take our DNA to other planets in the solar system, even if it were to take millions of years to get there, and we could survive long after our sun i...

Alcohol is legal, and anyone who wants to drink themselves to death will do so.
Heroin is a much more potent, life-threatening, and addictive drug, but who is to say that we shouldn't have freedom to choose what we put in our bodies?
The problem is that we've already established a culture wh...

I was just reading about R v Dudley and Stephens, a case where shipwrecked sailors starving to death voted to kill and eat one of the survivors (Richard Parker) in order for the rest of them to live, were still found guilty of murder. In other words, British common law established that a murder of n...

Based on the statistics, there is an almost 100% chance of diverse life throughout the universe. The odds of it being anything similar to our are unknown due to the numerous factors that guided evolution on our planet. There are probably life forms millions or billions of years more advanced and les...
