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.

10 Images That Changed the Course of Science (And One That Is About To)

10 Images That Changed the Course of Science (And One That Is About To) | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
One image can change the way we see the world, especially in science. From photographs of movement that's too fast for the human eye to perceive, to atomic force microscope images of atomic bonds, pictures created by new technologies have often catalyzed scientific discovery. More than tools of discovery, though, images can help scientists communicate the reality of what they study to each other and the public.

Abiogenesis is supported by evidence

One of the big scientific questions is how life began on earth. Many scientists are now agreed that life is almost certain to have originated out of simpler, chemical compounds. Further, that this is practically inevitable given the early conditions on earth. This isn’t about faith, but the evidence that has been accumulated.


Since the Miller experiments of the 1950s, the application of the principles of chemistry and physics to this problem has shown that nearly all the components of a simple-cell can and do form naturally.

Well I see this argument misses the mark somewhat, basically claiming atheism is a religion, even though he admits it's not. I am starting to agree with Stephen Hawking "Philosophy is dead."
