A Great Response to Pascal's Wager - Atheist Experience [youtube.com] Why Pascal's Wager isn't ...
Heraclitus comments on Sep 3, 2018:
Here are my 10 arguments against Pascal's Wager: 1) Even if there is a God, what makes you think God would condemn you to eternal torment simply because you can not force yourself to believe in a particular version of Him/Her/Them/It? Who told you that, and why did you believe it? Not only is it absurd, but it's not actually in the Bible, you know. Even if there is a God, don't you really think, yea verily, don't you deep down feel, that this must be a false god? 2) This is MOST important. One cannot force oneself to believe in God, or a god, if one truly does not believe. It simply can not be done. Try it. Let's start with a deity-like figure called Santa Claus. (He knows when you are sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows when you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!) Can't do it, can you? Can't do it with The Great Pumpkin either, right? OK, now try it with Baal, Zeus, Thor, Osiris, or any of a thousand other mythical gods. No luck there either, right? Just can't force yourself to do it. You can fake it, pretend to believe, lie to yourself and others, live a life of blatant hypocrisy, but you cannot really believe no matter how many times you hit your head against the wall. Not only your brain, but your heart won't let you do it. Now suppose I am a true believer in Woden/Odin and tell you that, just to be on the safe side, you better offer up an altar sacrifice to Woden/Odin least He condemn you to freeze forever in a Scandinavian hell. Would you go out and offer a blood sacrifice to Woden/Odin, just in case? No, of course, you wouldn't. The whole idea is just so absurd as not to be contemplated. So, why are you even considering something similar for the ancient tribal volcanic Hebrew god Jehovah/Yahweh, god of fire and brimstone, burning bushes, and a volcano-like hell buried in the bowels of the earth? Only one reason, right? Because you were raised to believe in such a god. There is no other reason. OK, Pascal's Wager, if taken seriously, is so absurd on face value that one could simply stop there. But frankly, this is too much fun to stop short, and this brings us to the important concepts of Salvation/Justification. 4) SALVATION BY HYPROCISY If there is a God, do you truly believe that God would reward you with heaven for living a life that is a total lie? Really? 5) SALVATION BY WAGER OR BETTING. Do you really think you can hedge a bet with an omniscient, all-powerful deity and win the bet? Really? Do you think you can fool God that you really believe in Him if you don't? If God can be fooled, then He is not God. Even Santa Claus would not fall for this. 6) SALVATION BY FEAR. The real reason you are contemplating pretending to believe in such a God is fear of hell, right? So, God will reward all ...

Heraclitus comments on Sep 3, 2018:
I've noticed several things in this regard. Religiosity has increased as our educational system has declined. For example, I run into people all the time now who know nothing about evolution other than the falsehoods they learned about "Darwinism" in Sunday school. Religiosity has also increased as cosmology has become less "commonsensical." This probably began with the Theory of Relativity and The Heisenburg's Uncertainy Principle and has gotten worse as people find they cannot understand, let alone relate, to the universe around them. Religiosity has increased as people have become increasingly fearful of the future, whether it is climate change, the genetic revolution, the robotic revolution and the coming Singularity, or anticipation of nuclear war. Religiosity has increased as we have lived in an endless war against a faceless foe of terrorism. "Making America Great Again" is a nostalgic retreat into an illusory past by those who fear to look forward. Sadly, I think things will get worse before they get better.

Heraclitus comments on Sep 2, 2018:
In our current socialistic democratic republic, we already own many things in common. That's a large part of what government does. It sounds like you are adding to the "commons" and attempting to prorate it for everyone. But, I have no idea how you would "prorate" all the resources to satisfy everyone. If you could come up with a way to do that you would be a very famous person.

Heraclitus comments on Aug 30, 2018:
My grandmother was a devout Catholic who was surprisingly understanding when I left the Catholic church. I didn't tell her though, my mother did. It helped that I was her favorite grandchild. To my amazement, my father who never attended Mass (a mortal sin for which you go to hell if you don't repent and he never did) was very intolerant of my leaving and argued about it constantly. You never really know.
Robot Rights
Heraclitus comments on Aug 30, 2018:
How would it ever be proven that robots have all the human properties that one would expect? They may pass the Turing test and appear to have such properties, but you can't put emotions in a test tube. I think humans will deny that robots are truly "human" long after they appear to have attained human equivalency, and so will deny them equal rights until forced to do so by the robots themselves.

As the Christian Church Crumbles, is Humanism Ready to Step Up? - TheHumanist.com
Heraclitus comments on Aug 29, 2018:
First of all, I don't know where you get the 20% from, as Wikipedia says 37%. Secondly, I've been hearing that the Christian churches were dying for over 50 years since the Death of God movement and though most of the mainline churches did diminish, the evangelical churches just kept getting stronger. Religion adapts. Thirdly, in my experience, most Christians are surface social Christians who barely understand their own religion, and don't read the Bible, and don't give that much. Churches are often more of a social organization than a theological one. Fourthly, if churches did go away, it would actually free up billions that now go to the upkeep, and in some case luxury living, of the churches, which could certainly be put to much better use. I don't really agree that churches are a very strong giving culture when you consider that billions are wasted internally on the church hierarchies rather than being put to good use. Fifthly, you certainly don't have to belong to a church to care about the human race. In fact, humanists have more of a reason to care about this planet and its inhabitants than those who think its all about getting to heaven and this life really doesn't matter. Some theists even think that suffering is noble and good for strengthening your faith, so why interfere with the "Will of God". So, unless they think you can buy your way into heaven, which of course you can't, why give money away? Sixthly, there are plenty of humanistic charities that are not associated with religion in any way. But, if you are implying that there should or need to be charities overtly associated with agnosticism or atheism, I'm afraid that society will have to change a lot more before that would attract a lot of money. In fact, I see no reason why I would give money to a charity for that reason alone. I think that the effectiveness of a charity is much more important.
Would you raise your children religious just to fit in?

If either you or your children are being religious just to "fit in" then you are not religious. You are hypocrites. Is "fitting in" worth a hypocritical inauthentic life?

Heraclitus comments on Aug 29, 2018:
You don't need to believe in a Supreme Being for life to have meaning. That's a false assumption that Theists make because they feel that THEIR life has no meaning without a God.
So here is a question. i believe in the idea that everything is explainable logically and through ...
Heraclitus comments on Aug 29, 2018:
You say you believe in logic and reason, but give no logic or reason for your belief in a "god/goddess". This is not logic, but an assertion of belief or faith in a general type of Theism. Since you believe that this is an intelligence that "we are part of it and it is part of us" this is an Immanent Theist belief as opposed to a Transcendent Theism. But this assertion of belief does not fit well in the Atheist/Agnostic realm. However, if you were instead to claim you don't know what this "god/goddess" is like, then you could then refer to yourself as an Agnostic Theist.

Heraclitus comments on Aug 29, 2018:
It goes back to Paul and 1 Corinthians 7:8 "Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do." The idea is that you are "married" to the Church and theoretically you will be more dedicated to the Church if you don't have a family to worry about. But there is more to it than that. Priests and nuns are supported by the Church, and if they were allowed to marry then the Church would be obligated to support their whole families which would cost considerably more money.

Heraclitus comments on Aug 28, 2018:
Repentance used to mean turning away from a sinful life and turning towards a good or godly life. That merited forgiveness and a second chance. Nowadays it seems to simply mean an excuse to live as evil a life as you want and still "go to heaven." Not sure when Christianity got turned on its head. I must have blinked.

Actually, I think the world is full of apatheists, they just don't use the term, and live as if they don't believe in God. I used to call my wife an "agnostic agnostic" because she didn't know if she was really agnostic or not. When I introduced her to the word "apatheist" she said, "That's me!"

"It's not what I say, it's what the Bible says."
Heraclitus comments on Aug 23, 2018:
When they say something like that, they are in effect, admitting their conscience disagrees with the Bible. They are doing something their conscience tells them is unethical but they are allowing the Bible to override their conscience. So, then the question is if they were not indoctrinated in the Bible as a child and were reading any so-called "scripture" for the first time, would they do something evil or "sinful" just because some old book says so?
Is religion the cause of all (or most) wars?
Heraclitus comments on Aug 23, 2018:
It may not be that religion is the direct cause of the beginning of most wars, though it certainly is of some, but it sure is useful in uniting and motivating people against a common enemy, as in "if God is for us, who can be against us?" and "if God is on our side, the devil must be on theirs."

As an ex-Catholic, I can tell you that Catholics don't actually believe that any man, including the Pope, is infallible. (At least, if they understand their own religion.) That is a Protestant myth. Catholics believe that God the Holy Spirit is infallible. Infallibility only applies when the Pope is speaking Ex Cathedra under the direct influence of the Holy Spirit. Of course, if you don't believe in the Ex Cathedra dogma, it all falls apart.

Do you think a fertilized egg is fully human and has full legal rights as a person? If you are an atheist and don't believe in a soul, why would you think that and on what grounds would you deny women control and choice? Are you logically consistent in your belief or is it just a vague reference for life in all forms? Etc.

Heraclitus comments on Aug 20, 2018:
I think it is a loss of faith in unbridled corrupt casino capitalism. Capitalism simply doesn't work without the proper institutional restraints. Look at what happened when Russia experimented with capitalism. It was a disaster that drove them back into an authoritarian state. It may, however, be too late for this country to go socialist, even if we wanted it to. There is already serious talk of cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and government pensions. Where would a government with over 21T in debt get the money to pay for additional socialist programs without jacking taxes through the roof? We would probably end up like Venezuela or Greece.
