PracticalDoubt.com » Ben Breedlove and the Near Death Experience | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

The Internet has been chattering about the death of Texas teenager Ben Breedlove and the three near death experiences he documented in a YouTube video before his death this Christmas. 1,500 gathered to mourn and/or celebrate the passing of Breedlove, who described his last NDE as a “peaceful” place he “did not want to wake up” from. His description of NDEs began with an incident at the age of four, where he saw a bright light above him in the hallway of a hospital. His last one, where his heart had stopped for three minutes, occurred not long before his death and involved a large, white room with no walls, him in a nice suit, and a mirror where he could see that he was proud of his life accomplishments.

10 Things You Miss About Christian Fundamentalism | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

So you used to be a Christian fundamentalist, but now you’ve been born again in the fires of hell and baptized in the cold water of atheism. Congratulations. And while you appreciate all your new free time and ability to think through a situation without superstitiously invoking a deity or fleeing to church, there are also some things you miss about your old faith…

This just in: creationists deny the existence of dinosaurs! | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

This just in: creationists deny the existence of dinosaurs! We’re used to the familiar creationist trope of dinosaurs coexisting with humans, and we all remember the photo of P.Z. riding on a _Triceratops_ at the Creation Museum in Kentucky. At least those creationists have the decency to admit that dinosaurs were real, and that the fossils are real remnants of animals that once existed.

Here in the west it’s often “inconvenient” to come out as an atheist, but these former Muslims who have come out as atheists on this video are brave souls indeed as I’m sure there are some religious nuts out there who would do something extreme. Well done!

So you’re a theist who wants to comment on an atheist blog? Read this first!

There are certain arguments and tactics which we see over and over again, usually (but not exclusively) from Biblical literalist Christians (included hereafter for brevity under the umbrella terms “fundamentalists” or “fundies”). Sometimes their posts are very offensive, but usually they’re just repeating arguments that we’ve already seen many, many times. With that in mind, I’m aiming to create a thread that can be linked to whenever a new commenter turns up and uses these same arguments and tactics.

“This is Satanic, this is the ultimate Satanic attack, when Lucifer attacks his worst enemy, the Blessed Virgin. This particular church — so called — is run by a gay, feminist-type lobby. They claim to be Christian and yet they put up a blasphemous image of the Blessed Virgin, attacking her virginity and the fact that she was the mother of Christ, the God-Man.”

County school superintendent blasts evolution | NCSE

County school superintendent blasts evolution | NCSE | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

The superintendent of the school system in Hart County, Kentucky, is complaining about the emphasis on evolution in the state's new end-of-course test for biology, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader (December 13, 2011). In a November 21, 2011, letter to state education commissioner Terry Holliday and the state board of education, Ricky D. Line expressed "deep concern about the increased emphasis on the evolution content required in the new End-of-Course Blueprint ... I find the increase is substantial and alarming." He continued, "I have a very difficult time believing that we have come to a point in education that we are teaching evolution, not the theory of evolution, as a factual occurence, while totally omitting the creation story by a God who is bigger than all of us. I do not believe in macroevolution, and I do believe in creation by our God." Line oversees six schools with about 2200 students.

The Ten Marks of a Deluded Person | Debunking Christianity

The Ten Marks of a Deluded Person | Debunking Christianity | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Below in no particular order are what I consider the ten marks (or characteristics) of a deluded person. I think even educated Christians will agree with most of them. You might want to consider from this checklist how many of them apply to you. To the degree that more of them apply then the more likely you are deluded by your faith. Now it’s quite possible that Christians can be deluded and yet their faith is true, in the same sense that a person might be brainwashed or indoctrinated into believing the truth. But the point is that if you’re deluded then you have no reason to believe.
