Atheism

I have collected here links to some of my posts about atheism. These include attacks on naturalism/materialism along with polemics against meaning and ethics on an atheistic worldview. I’ve also written several posts in response to various phrases atheists use like “We’re all atheists” or “There’s as much evidence for unicorns as there is for God.”

Atheism’s Universe is Meaningless and Valueless- I argue that, on atheism, there is no ultimate meaning. Further, I argue that because there is no way to say that matter moving in one way is better than matter moving in another, even subjective value is vacuous.

On the statement that “we are all atheists”- an investigation of the statement perpetuated by some atheists that “We’re all atheists, I just take it one step further.”

Materialists, where is hope? Look to the stars!- a post reflecting on the tendency of materialists to look to the transcendent in the form of aliens instead of God.

What Evil? (The Problem of Evil on Empiricism)- Is there actually evil if we live in a materialistic universe? Why do materialists use evil to counter the existence of God?

If Materialism, Are There Subjects?- I argue that if materialism is true, there is no such thing as a “subject.”

Ozymandias and the Plight of Atheism- I apply the poem “Ozymandias” to the meaningless universe of atheism.

Atheists and Unicorns: Emotional Appeal- A look at the claim that “There’s as much evidence for unicorns as for God.”

Arguing for Deism?- I investigate the claim that certain theistic proofs are only for deism.

The Myth of Atheism: Is it (epistemic) neutral ground?- Is atheism a ground from which to judge all worldviews? Or is it just as biased as others?

Sam Harris vs. William Lane Craig: Thoughts and Links- Review of the Craig/Harris debate with extensive critique and links.

William Lane Craig vs. Lawrence Krauss- Review of Craig/Krauss debate with critique and links.

Sam Harris on Christian Sacraments–Lunacy?- an investigation of Harris’ claim that the Christian sacraments are for lunatics.

A series of posts critiquing and reviewing atheistic philosopher J.L. Mackie’s Miracle of Theism: Introduction, Chapter 1

Cruel Logic: “Ideas have Consequences”- a video showing atheism’s ethical system is bereft of a grounds for value (MATURE AUDIENCES).

  2. Greetings. I am rather new to the “neighborhood” and I am now following your blogs as I’m curious to see forthcoming posts from you. Pardon for asking but would you have a blog or debate that covers objective moral values?

    • I confess I didn’t read the whole thing, is there anything you’d like me specifically to reference? I tend to not approve comments that are just “Hey look at this [link]“… so is there anything that you’d like to say specifically?

      • Not necessarily … jus a collection of ideas pertaining to the discussion of athesim, that you might have found insightful or interesting. Since you seem to have thought about it yourself, thought you might have something interesting to say on the subject.
