Observations

While atheists are certainly free to say they they believe in science and art and poetry and love and marriage and family – and I believe it’s true – those aspects of human life invariably seem to have originated from religious belief. To the extent that the atheists enjoy those aspects of human life they are enjoying the fruits of the labors of others and are mere hangers-on to that which they were given by those who came before them. There is no evidence non-religious creatures could have given us the experiences that make us human.

    Yet another unsubstantiated claim.

    This type of arrogance and delusion is beneath you Jack.

    In a world dominated by superstition and fear; mythology was one thing everyone mostly had in common. It’s not that suprising then that most things you describe contain elements of mythology. But this isn’t always true.

    To say then that mythology inspired people to accomplishments really goes without saying. However this doesn’t prove such mythology correct.

    I absolutely agree this claim doesn’t in and of itself constitute a proof for the existence of God, but what I think it does is cast doubt on the notion that we would have the components that comprise culture and civilization (art, music, literature, science, etc.) apart from religious belief.

  5. […] Do I need to go any further than pointing out that some of the greatest scientists and thinkers ever have been devoutly religious? That doesn’t prove the validity of religion, but it certainly tends to counter the fact that having religion makes one superior in the sense of one’s intelligence. As this atheist clearly demonstrates by it’s commenting. Again, It would surprise me to learn it can walk and talk at the same time. Last one for now: “There is no evidence that non-religious creatures could have given us the experiences that make u… […]

    “There is no evidence that non-masterbating creatures could have given us the experiences that make us human.”

    Try and spot the more asinine comment.
    Yeah, I know, it is tough!!
    More of that fine Christian logic!

    Given that you sign your comments the same each time, the most assinine comments in any thread are always easy to find. Thanks for that.
