    What makes somebody atheist and not a theist?

    Evolution of my worldview: theist, agnostic, etc... :-)

    Following are some of my beliefs & opinions. Nobody in human history has (yet) proven that God exists. Therefore, I think that theism lacks validity, especially in the 21st Century. At the same time, atheism seems to be illogical because there are just to many "indicators" for a...

    Interesting Experience and Thoughts about Interconnection

    So It's been a little while since I posted on these forums but I have been continuing my practice. Yesterday I was doing my normal ritual worship and meditation. I offered a banana to Ma Kali then bowed down so my head touched the floor. When my head touched the floor I was immediately filled...

    Atheists - A Question...

    Scenario : You are in the waiting room of a medical facility. There are about 30 people in the room. A man enters the main entrance. Stands in the doorway. Looks around the room at everyone, and then leaves. You see people looking at others, and reacting as if they are having mixed reactions...

    The interpretive headscratcher that is Evangelicalism

    I saw this new video from Belief It Or Not, which does great video essays on Christianity in the US. This one is basically about how conservative Evangelical types stand for the opposite of everything Jesus said. It's longer, but it's good. Let me know what you think?

    New free spirit on board

    Hello everyone! I'm a new member seeking some occasional enlightment from different perspectives. I'm quite a science enjoyer and consider myself an atheist however lately I'm becoming interested in paganism. I always enjoyed myths and legends and recognize the psychological benefits of...

    The World Isn't Black and White Atheist vs Theist

    I have been reading a decent bit of Chris Hedges lately. I recently got his book I don't believe in atheists. It's not about believing or not believing in atheists so much as it is about utopian idealists whether theist or atheist not being what we need in the world. He talks about the...

    Religions actively employ the cycle of abuse.

    I believe religious people frequently employ the cycle of abuse as a method for indoctrination and inculcating unquestioning devotion. I feel there is a strong parallel between indoctrination and the cycle of abuse. I have confidence that this practice causes emotional, physical, and...

    Can science reconcile different moral positions?

    I wanted to get opinions. I’ve had several conversations on line on the subject of morality. There are so many philosophical positions one can hold and many seem to be exclusive, on their own accounts, and have ardent defenders. Is morality neural and societal simultaneously? Subjectively, our...

    Creationism: Is it New? Are creationists by default dishonest& ignorant in basic science?

    Encountering a new conversation the curiosity of this made me open a new thread to understand further. Is creationism a brand new movement of some sort that sprung up around 100 years ago? If that is the case how about those who lived prior to that? Are they not creationists? Creationism by...

    World as Fairy-tale

    Time is an illusion, many sages say. After all, why do we see the number 2020 on the calendar and not 2010 or 2022, if we exist and are alive not only today and now? Therefore, the wise men should be put on a scientific track: time is real, but the passage of time is an illusion. A fairy-tale...

    "I'd rather be uncertain and learn, than dead certain and wrong."

    "I'd rather be uncertain and learn, than dead certain and wrong." I suppose that's my religious philosophy. It seems to me that the more people think they know, the less they learn. It's good to examine and question one's beliefs periodically or regularly, in my opinion.

    Secular Humanism and Samkhya

    I have been reading and trying to understand the (to me, extremely valid) viewpoints of those that profess to follow the path of secular humanism - pardon me if I inadvertently omit some names but @It Aint Necessarily So and @SkepticThinker as well as perhaps @TagliatelliMonster and...

    Neither a Theist nor an Atheist Be?

    I stumbled across this statement whilst puttering around teh interwebz. "There is, however, no "not atheist nor theist". Anyone who actively believes there is a god is a theist. Anyone who does not (even if they consider the question "unknowable" or the like), is an atheist. There is not any...

    To impose or not impose: Ideas, Faith or Prophet?

    Many Christians belittle non-Christians by telling "Christianity is the superior religion" (implying non-Christianity is inferior). Maybe I am wrong, and it's not many Christians behaving like this. The poll might remove unclarities on this matter. Maybe it's not just Christians who belittle...

    Foolish duplicity detected:

    It's my understanding that theists paint atheists as being the fools, and there are certainly textual passages that label every non-believer as such. Apart from belief versus non-belief I think the major separation issue is the valuing of reason, and herein lies a problem someone can perhaps...

    Hello, everyone!

    I'm new here and just getting oriented. The site looks sharply designed, but the prompts to post should be far more immediate and prominent. My position on religion is as follows: I believe that nature alone is sufficient to explain creation and eternal existence of self. I don't favor the...
