Apologetics: How to Talk to an Atheist about Christianity
Judas och Simons erövringar 1 1När Josua var död frågade israeliterna Herren: ”Vem av oss skall först dra ut mot kanaaneerna och kämpa mot dem?” 2Herren svarade: ”Juda. Jag ger landet i hans våld.” 3Då sade Juda till sin bror Simon: ”Följ med mig till det område som föll på min lott. Låt oss kämpa tillsammans mot kanaaneerna. Domarboken – Bibeln
Another of those common, erroneous strategies used to criticize those danged Gnu Atheists is to first invent a definition for New Atheism that the Gnu Atheists themselves would find foreign, and then to jump all over it for a prolonged period of time until they’ve convinced themselves they’ve finally defeated their nemesis. It’s the cardboard cutout tactic — it turns out that cardboard versions of us put up much less of a fight than the real thing. I’m afraid Stephen Asma has committed the same error. He has written a long, meandering essay that accuses the New Atheists of having a narrow worldview because, he thinks, all we know about is Christianity and Islam.

As always, we air at 4:30-5:30 PM (CST) today (Sunday). You can watch live on ustream: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-atheist-experience My plan is to discuss a few of the willfully ignorant things theists say in response to discovering people are atheist activists, including statements such as "why are you so angry at god?"

This is actually a question I can see both sides of, even though I know which side I come down on. And recently a fan wrote in to express the following: I'm ok with cherry picking religious beliefs in general because I think that it has helped push beliefs towards a more beneficial outcome. Today you hear people claiming that the Christian God is Love and other such nonsense, but I'd rather them intentionally ignore the bad parts in their holy book than to accept it all unquestioningly if they're going to believe in both cases already. He raised some good points about how it's good many Muslims are moderate--and not like their more fanatical counterparts. I get the point, I really do. Is Cherry Picking a Good Thing?
Jesus and the Law of Moses There is much confusion rampant today regarding Christ and the Law of Moses. The expression "law of Moses" is found in the scriptures (Lk. 24: 44). Jesus and the Law of Moses
De tio budorden (Tio Guds bud, dekalogen) är de tio befallningar som Gud ger till Mose i Gamla Testamentet, enligt 2 Mos. 20:3-17, 2 Mos. 34:1-28 och 5 Mos. 5:6-21. En av de äldsta bevarade versionerna av budorden återfinns bland Nash-papyrusen. Vissa budord föregås av en längre förklaring, medan andra är endast rena befallningar utan förklaring. Jesus åberopade ofta budorden. De sammanfattas där i det dubbla kärleksbudet och den gyllene regeln. De tio budorden
Contents: Essays From The Church of Theists Suck: Quick Fact: In the US, the number of non-religious people has more than doubled from 14.3 million in 1990 to 29.4 million in 2001; their proportion has grown from just eight percent of the total in 1990 to over fourteen percent in 2001. This was the greatest increase in absolute as well as in percentage terms among all religious groups.
Positive Atheism's Big List of Quotations
When philosophy professor Keith Parsons posted an announcement on his blog, The Secular Outpost, explaining why he had decided to abandon philosophy of religion, he expected only his handful of regular readers to take notice. After a decade teaching philosophy of religion at the University of Houston, during which time he founded the philosophy of religion journal Philo and published over twenty books and articles in the field, Parsons hung up his hat on September 1:I have to confess that I now regard “the case for theism” as a fraud and I can no longer take it seriously enough to present it to a class as a respectable philosophical position—no more than I could present intelligent design as a legitimate biological theory. BTW, in saying that I now consider the case for theism to be a fraud, I do not mean to charge that the people making that case are frauds who aim to fool us with claims they know to be empty.

Jamaat-e-Islami, one of Pakistan's main Islamist political parties, also said Mr Taseer's assassination was justified. "If the government had removed him from the governorship, there wouldn't have been the need for someone to shoot him," it said in a statement. Qadri said after his arrest that he had shot the Punjab governor for his views: "Salman Taseer is a blasphemer and this is the punishment for a blasphemer." Pictures of his smiling face dominated the local newspapers, which questioned why five other police protection officers allowed him to pump 40 bullets into Mr Taseer's body. Police sources also claimed that Qadri had previously been identified as a security risk because of his extremist religious views. Clerics salute 'brave' Pakistan killer
Mainstream Pakistan religious organisations applaud killing of Salman Taseer | World news The increasing radicalisation of Pakistani society was today laid bare when mainstream religious organisations applauded the murder of Salmaan Taseer, the governor of Punjab, earlier this week and his killer was showered with rose petals as he appeared in court. Taseer was buried in his home town of Lahore. The 66-year-old was assassinated yesterday by Mumtaz Qadri, one of his police bodyguards, after he had campaigned for reform of the law on blasphemy. Qadri appeared in court, unrepentant, where waiting lawyers threw handfuls of rose petals over him and others in the crowd slapped his back and kissed his cheek as he was led in and out amid heavy security.

Varje december får jag en känsla av högtidlig helighet som är omöjlig att matcha med pynt, jesusbarn, pepparkakor och granar. Det handlar om ett religiöst spår som barndomens söndagsskola plöjde upp i min hjärna. Och varje jul brukar jag läsa evangelierna och de andra historierna i barnversion för min son.

Every year, researchers from the British Social Attitudes survey ask a representative sample of British people whether they regard themselves as belonging to any particular religion and, if so, to which one? When the survey first asked these questions in 1985, 63% of the respondents answered that they were Christians, compared with 34% who said they had no religion (the rest belonged to non-Christian religions). Today, a quarter of a century on, there has been a steady and remarkable turnaround. Religion: respecting the minority | Editorial | Comment is free
