The Inhumanity of Religious Morality

Before your religion was conceived of, before anyone believed in your God, what do you think people were doing? Do you think rape and infanticide and pillaging and murder were considered permissible and everyone brought down their full force of aggression to get their way? That every teenage compulsion immediately resulted in rape, and every… Continue reading The Inhumanity of Religious Morality

Allallt believes in Objective Morality

I’ve called this ‘Allallt believes in Objective Morality’ because the issue of morality is actually beyond the confines of “atheism”. I doubt many of the other authors on this blog agree with me on this one. However, the discussion that is likely to follow, I hope, will offer elucidation on atheists. I believe in objective… Continue reading Allallt believes in Objective Morality

the complete inferiority of Christian ethics. (xPrae: how I defeated you so soundly (part 5))

In this post, I am going to argue that Christianity is morally inferior to both Islam and atheism. Christianity purports to answer moral questions, but instead offers a loophole that bypasses and excuses all those possible answers to morality. Islam, at least, does have a clear moral message and lacks any obvious subversion of its… Continue reading the complete inferiority of Christian ethics.

xPrae: how I defeated you so soundly (part 4: What does Compassion Look Like?)

There are many Christians who read their Bible in an incredibly specific and generally good way. I argue this method is not Biblical, but it is good. This good method is to find Jesus’ command to “love thy neighbour” and to assume “neighbour” means “all fellow human beings”. Jesus, thus, commanded ‘universal love and compassion’,… Continue reading xPrae: how I defeated you so soundly (part 4: What does Compassion Look Like?)

More Against Jesus’ Resurrection

As it happens, I can't fathom all the possibilities to account for the (probably false) data that Jesus died and then his tomb was found empty. My imagination does not stretch as far as those who have religious reasons not to accept the claim the Christians keep making, which of course the Jews and Muslims… Continue reading More Against Jesus’ Resurrection

4. The Biblical God required Child Sacrifice for His Pleasure

Part of the reason I decided to do a commentary on the book God or Godless? is because the atheist does such a bad job. Here is part 4. God commands child sacrifice. And with the Bible as my source, this basically cannot be denied. But only the Christian seems to get the significance of this:… Continue reading 4.

1. If there is No God, then Life has No Purpose

I downloaded a free book called God or Godless?: One Christian. One Atheist. Twenty Controversial Questions. The book prides itself on posing controversial and unconventional questions. I’m not so sure the questions are controversial, but I’d like to open the discussion to my blog. I’m a little disappointed by the atheist’s best attempt in places,… Continue reading 1.
