Go to: Is weak atheism too weak?

Pyrion's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by Pyrion

To state that the christian god is scientifically not explainable does exactly nothing as an argument to a believer. That's really the same that believers say all the time, for them it's not a contradiction. If there is an allmighty god, per definition he does not have to obey the rules of physics (because he can change them). If your premise is that everything obey the rules of physics, of course such a god can not exist.

You can not prove this premise though. We never observed something not following the laws of nature, but that does not mean such a thing does not exist. You can't completely rule it out. It still has about the same probability like the invisible dragon in my garage, which is not zero (almost though).

Go to: The 99 - Super hero story inspired by Islam

Pyrion's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Pyrion

Look at this TED talk to get another view of the 99: http://www.ted.com/talks/naif_al_mutawa_superheroes_inspired_by_islam.html

For me it looks like a great idea! He is trying to smuggle good moral values into islamic culture.

Yes, i have to agree with Graham on the point of islam being a wicked religion. Christianity is only slightly less wicked of course. It's sad that saying the truth is often politically incorrect.
