The Evil God Challenge

Posted by doctore0 on November 10, 2014

Stephen Law lays out an interesting new argument that can be used against anyone who believes in an all-good god. This argument shows that a maximally good god cannot be established to be any more probable than a maximally evil god. Believers will generally reject the evil god hypothesis as absurd, but since there is such perfect symmetry in the arguments used defending the character each type of god, if theists are willing to reject the evil god hypothesis on the basis of counter evidence (the problem of good), they should be willing to reject the good god hypothesis as well.

Atheist scientist claims religion will be gone in a generation.

Posted by doctore0 on November 7, 2014


Religion can be eradicated in one generation?

That’s according to atheist scientist and cosmologist Lawrence Krauss, who recently stoked controversy with comments suggesting that religion could disappear in the near future if schools gave students the tools to determine as much.

“What we need to do is present comparative religion as a bunch of interesting historical anecdotes, and show the silly reasons why they did what they did,” Krauss said at an Aug. 29 dinner presentation on cosmology and education at the Victorian Skeptics Cafe in Melbourne, Australia, in response to a question about religion being taught in schools. The video of his response was uploaded on Monday to YouTube.

“People say, ‘Well, religion has been around since the dawn of man. You’ll never change that,’” said Krauss, who the Foundation Professor of the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. He argued that religion will go the way of slavery and opposition to gay marriage.

“This issue of gay marriage, it is going to go away, because if you’re a child, a 13-year-old, they can’t understand what the issue is,” he continued. ”It’s gone. One generation is all it takes.”

Christians beaten to death for allegedly desecrating Qur’an in Pakistan

Posted by doctore0 on November 5, 2014

Religion of peace….

A Muslim mob beat a Christian couple to death in Pakistan and burnt their bodies in the brick kiln where they worked for allegedly desecrating a Qur’an, police have said.

The attack in Kot Radha Kishan, 40 miles south-west of Lahore, is the latest example of violence against minorities accused of blasphemy.

“A mob attacked a Christian couple after accusing them of desecration of the holy Qur’an and later burnt their bodies at a brick kiln where they worked,” local police station official Bin-Yameen said.

Another police official confirmed the incident. The victims were only identified by their first names, Shama and Shehzad, and were married.

Pakistan’s brick-kiln workers are often subject to harsh practices. A study by the Bonded Labour Liberation Front Pakistan estimated that 4.5 million are indentured labourers.

Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif has constituted a three-member committee to fast track the investigation of the killings and ordered police to increase security at Christian neighbourhoods in the province, an official from his media office said.

Blasphemy is a hugely sensitive issue in the majority-Muslim country, with even unproven allegations often prompting violence.

Anyone convicted, or even just accused, of insulting Islam, risks a violent death at the hands of vigilantes.

Florida HS football player gets support after end zone prayer is flagged

Posted by doctore0 on November 4, 2014

Thank-you-JesusSenior Sam Turner took a knee in the end zone at Edison Stadium on Friday night, threw his hands up in the air, offered a prayer. Almost as soon as his knee hit the turf, an official flagged the play.

His words of praise earned a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Turner’s action — reminiscent of another more famous Florida football player — and that penalty has been drawing comment in Southwest Florida, mostly positive, for the past few days.

“There’s been tons of support from my family and friends,” the Fort Myers senior said Sunday. “They are proud of me that I stood firm in my faith.”

Turner said that he was only excited to have caught the first touchdown of his high school football career, a 27-yarder from QB Dylan DeGroot during the Green Wave’s game against Riverdale, and went down on one knee and pointed his finger skyward, uttering a prayer.

“I said ‘thank you, God, for this talent you’ve blessed me with,’”
