I'm always blown away when I see how big the threads get. Hell, Eagle's first thread has over doubled in size since his last post.

Sadly, I do miss some of the legit discussions we used to have here two or three years ago, but those seem to be fewer and fewer. It's probably a big part of why I try to give any new poster the benefit of the doubt.

I would love it if some religious person could bring us something substantial, thought provoking or original. I honestly would. Not that it's very likely they'd manage to recruit me into their religion, but I'd be very interested in some sort of real analysis of all this "God" business.

But every time... it's the same nonsense. You could write it down on cards beforehand: the dozen or so flawed logical arguments and then the desperate appeals to morality and such, followed by self-aggrandizing or threats by proxy.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

...and word salads Rob, don’t forget word salads.

The problem is that there is nothing in religion that is substantial, thought provoking, or original. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I find people's fascination with it fascinating. So it provoked that thought. Tongue

Lol argument from accurate place names is the best Big Grin

Seriously, this guy knew the name of the town he was living in! How else could he have known that if God didn't tell him?
