The Atheist Cosmological Argument | Big Think | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

In my past writings, I've made it a hobby to call attention to potent, but often overlooked, reasons to believe that atheism is true.

Nihilistic Existentialism | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Those who disbelieve in God will usually agree that there is no “objective” meaning to their lives, but deny that therefore there is no meaning at all.
