Go to: Simply ... should I read the bible?

lloydy1's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by lloydy1

Should you read the bible? If you have nothing better to do I guess. Certainly not, as you state, to read up on 'the other side' of the argument. You are an atheist because you realise there is absolutely no evidence for the existence of any god. The bible cannot offer any evidence contrary to this as it is purely a bunch of fables, myths and uneducated beliefs that were written and edited by men. I don't see how reading the bible can either confirm or question your atheism.

Go to: New Atheism – A "commoner’s" perspective

Excellent post Nick, it really struck a chord with me. I am of the same vintage as you and have been an atheist as long as I can remember, like you religion never made any sense. What is so refreshing about Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens and co is that I now feel like I have a voice, and they have given me the tools to articulate my position. The accomodationists definately do not "get it", and their criticisms only harm the advancements that have been made in regards to the voice of the non-religious.

Go to: Can we talk about Muslim homophobia now?

lloydy1's Avatar Jump to comment 53 by lloydy1

These statistics are scary but surely this cannot be viewed as just a "Muslim" issue. All religions view homosexuality a sin and demonstrate bigotry towards gay people. Until we denounce every religion for their bigotry teachings toward not only homosexuals but also women etc, can we develop an effective strategy to deal with Muslim homophobes.

I almost felt sorry for him, almost. A perfect example of trying to fight above your weight. That was excellent.
