Your religion is just one of millions of religions that exist and have existed, so there is no more reason to bet on that than any of the other ones, if one was really serious about taking Pascal's…

That is why secular morality is so superior to religions. Because it is based on compassion and not immutable laws that should be followed, just because, regardless of how much people suffer. Your…

Catholics now claim to believe in evolution. You can't consistently believe in both evolution and a literal Adam and Eve. There never was a time when an ape gave birth to a man and so there never was…

Fallen from what? It isn't as if any of our evolutionary ancestors (bacteria, …, fish, …, apes) lived in some paradise free of any conflict. And how does God killing himself in the form of a…

Butthurt? No doubt, if we were all catholics, we would have learned to just turn the other cheek.

It isn't the least bit preposterous. It is in fact rather obvious that if people are not exposed to particular systems of irrational belief in their childhood then they are unlikely to believe them…

The point is that is none of your business what adults choose to do in the privacy of their bedrooms, provided it is consensual and not harmful to others. It is a totally secular issue and not…

By "new atheism" people generally refer to the four horsemen: Dawkins, Hitchens, Dennet, Harris. Of those four I'd say that Sam Harris is probably the most outspoken. But none of their positions are…

That is a very big change of tune: Saying that religion is good for humanity is a completely different argument from saying that religion is true. I can't say, with any degree of confidence, to what…
