(Not Very) Clever Questions Atheists can’t (be Bothered to) Answer

Here is a list of questions the author thinks atheists are unable to answer. There is a good chance the questions are insincere and the questions have done the round before. In places they have been answered better, but what's the point in blogging if I won't say something someone else has already said better (Lord… Continue reading (Not Very) Clever Questions Atheists can’t (be Bothered to) Answer

Why the Enlightenment is part of our species and Creationism is a retardation of it

ColorStorm told me that some atheists I praise on WordPress are rude. I defined rude in a earlier post as “when you lay unwarranted negativity on the person”. ColorStorm then told me an atheist I praise described Creationism as a retardation of our species. I think that is warranted. I think that can be defended as… Continue reading Why the Enlightenment is part of our species and Creationism is a retardation of it

18. The Biblical God is an Incompetent Creator

We have nearly finished my tour of God or Godless?; this is the eighteenth of the twenty chapters. This one is one of the more interesting ones to me. As such, even without this foreword, I broke my 600 word limit (by seven words). It was a little clichéd, so I spiced it up at the… Continue reading 18. The Biblical God is an Incompetent Creator

My Last Commentary on Creationism

I know I’ve said I don’t deal with Creationism, I’ve even said that I won’t deal with Creationism as a point of personal policy. But I keep giving in. This time, I accidentally wrote a comment over at Midori Skies’ blog, on the post “Do you believe in evolution?” The point of the post is… Continue reading My Last Commentary on Creationism

Dear Theist (2): A quick dip in Atheism, Evolution, God, Morality and “Nothing”

Dear Caroline, I hope you appreciate that I put a lot of thought into my replies and so really do want my thoughts on my blog instead of lost among a comment thread. I also apologise to my readers that Caroline's response is lost somewhere in the comments to her post (although, you are welcome to… Continue reading Dear Theist (2): A quick dip in Atheism, Evolution, God, Morality and “Nothing”

Engaging with Creationism

Creationism doesn’t really come in many flavours: Young Earth, Old Earth and ‘science, but God did it’ are basically the groups. Each of them believes that God seeded life and the Universe. The first two believe that God created life as is, and that no evolution has ever taken place, but they disagree about how long… Continue reading Engaging with Creationism

On the Illusion of Species

I don’t like to talk much about Creationism, but here I go again. I want to expand on a point I made in an earlier post: Darwin should have called his book On the Illusion of Species. I've tried to get rid of technical terms and keep this readable. The point I’m working up to is… Continue reading On the Illusion of Species

Evolution and the Piltdown Man.

I don’t like to talk much about Creationism. The fact is that there isn’t an argument for it, unless you argue for ‘God’s creation via evolution’. And I’m fine with that. I don’t believe it, it’s scientifically uncorroborated, and it has major challenges that I implore you to answer. But the argument in favour of… Continue reading Evolution and the Piltdown Man.
