Synthetic A Priori
I've noticed that most proof about god's existence rely solely on logical arguments. For me, that is not a very effective way of proving the existence of a "sentient being" (AKA God). R As one Christian have said, "I want to clarify is that by God I mean th...

Invisible God?
Often, Christians have some funny ways to defend their "unseen" god. Some compare it to abstract ideas such as the mind, love, courage and worst, some equate their god to air. Maybe it's a kind of excuse - You can't see god because he's like air - PERIOD! I...

Not a very "serious" argument.
Every time I post or encounter arguments about the historical Jesus, I get this reply. "No serious historians reject the historicity of Jesus." Really? So are you saying that those who reject it are not to be considered as "serious historians" huh? Looking ...

Demon Possession
According to an African Christian on the issue regarding atheism and demon possession:   ''Demons wouldn't attack their own. They know atheists are on their side." Me: Really? According to your own bible, "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the d...

Blame the atheists? Why not blame King James' 72 scholars who (for the lack of any idea) translated the Hebrew word re'em to unicorn. Don't expect too much scholarship in early 16th Century England. The KJV was published in 1611 and even without the advised of Richard Bancroft, those who created the KJV used the Rheims-Douai and the Geneva Bible as references (and not so much of the original Hebrew). According to the Puritan Hebrew Scholar Hugh Broughton, the committee that translated the KJV has little understanding of Hebrew words. The language use in creating the KJV is not the language that the Hebrews used and express. It is the language of British poets used to entertain kings, lords and other royal authority. It is the language of Shakespearean expressive style. It was not about accuracy and getting the right meaning of the Hebrew languange. Early Greek Bibles are also not accurate when it comes to Hebrew words. Not only that they mistranslated the word "maiden" to a "virgin" they also mistranslated the word re'em to rhinoceros. Today, modern bible scholars agrees that the right word for re'em is wild ox.

On the issue of Atheists and Bible Burning
Come on guys... You can call me a coward for not supporting this bible burning activity, but do you think that such an activity will make your "atheism" the talk of the town? Not that I believe in "catching flies" but burning bibles will just make you look ...

Homophobia
I really don't understand anything about homophobia until I become involved with the Filipino Freethinkers - well, that was when I attended my very first Pride March. Before that I hate gays. I remember going with some friends and in one conversation, I exp...
