Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

  • Richard Dawkins stripped of 1996 Humanist of the Year Award...

    ...for questioning transgenderism.

    Suddenly Richard Dawkins is going to be "so 2005".

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    Philosophically, do humans have a "right to identity"?...If so, is this a right acquired from the Nation-State or is it inherent (a right because we are human)?

      They have the freedom to do so. And we have the freedom to disagree. A man who claims to be a woman is not. We all have the right of freedom of speech and conscience.
      Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

        People have the freedom to identify as they choose, and I believe it is a right...maybe even an inherent right. But don't get mad at me if I get thrown off by that brawny jawline and refer to you as "he".

          This appears to be another example of what is increasingly becoming progressive fascism. Disagree with us [whoever "us" happens to be] at your peril over issues surrounding the trans community. Such attitudes manifest the traits of a religious cult.

            He's gotten himself in trouble with the SJWs several times in recent years. It was only a matter of time before they cancelled him.

              J.K. Rowling sure found out about that the hard way.

                Other people have the right to decide for themselves whether or not to accept your self-designation.

                  It's a case of "we are FAR more inclusive and tolerant than you, and we will absolutely not tolerate your exclusivity, however WE define it!"
                  The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                      Ironically they proved his tweet true.

                      dawkins.jpg

                      They vilified him for it.

                      I hate to agree with Dawkins on anything because he is such a prig, but his tweet was spot on.

                      I also was saddened to see him try to back off his comments and apologize to these woke bullies.

                        Has that ever worked?

                          Nope. Because "forgiveness" is not in the cancel culture's vocabulary.

                          If I were him, I would go on tiktok or twitter, and publicly destroy his "Humanitarian Award" and show them what he thinks of their wokenated removal of it. Maybe piss on it.

                              A bunch of people castigating someone for forsaking science in favor of personal prejudice isn't fascism or a cult, it's the normal course of cultural development. Fascism would be codifying that prejudice for the sake of harming those whom one is prejudiced against. A cult would be believing in common falsehoods easily proven wrong by the most basic study.
