Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503

Ole Olson20,256Top Circlers on the GooglesphereI've been sharing one and only one circle per day lately, picking the most interesting ones I've found. My goal is to share a diverse selection of circles, some based on topics like the environment, or interests like scifi, or well designed share circles. Probably about time I share one of my OWN circles for a change!Below is my recently updated Top Circles circle. These folks have a good track record of forging excellent share circles.

Shawna Mac22,734Canadian Circle Share - Evening EditionHappy Friday!  Last week there were a few Canadian circle shares and I was circled by a bunch of new Canucks, so I'm sharing mine this week as it is brimming with fresh, active Canadians and will help those new to G+ get some great content in their streams.  Slight emphasis on Nova Scotians mebbe.If you are a Canadian or a new circler and want me to add you, please comment below and I shall be happy to do so (but please have your about me filled out with something other than Viagra ads!)I <3 my Canadians (and I'm notifying you so you know where all the new people are coming from)#Canada #Canadiana #NovaScotia #circleshare #circlesharefriday2013-05-11 00:08:5950128921
Ole Olson13,134My Top Circler CircleSpecial thanks to these people on G+ who have shared me in one of their circles. I don't say it very often, but I really do appreciate it.  As I went over the list on +CircleCount last night, I realized some of these folks had vanished from my own circles, which happens on G+ occasionally, but that has been rectified. These are all fine folks with an eclectic mix of quality posts. Add this circle for some outstanding engagers.   And for others, sculpting quality circles and SHARING them is a very important part to G+. Don't share a circle every day, but do it once in a while to help others find who is important to you on here. Dirk TalamascaAndrey MashnichJack C CrawfordCircleCountEuro MaestroSusanne RamharterMark SDaniel HarringtonPaul MeulmanRandy HilarskiJUSTIN MATTHEW (shouting!)Gideon RosenblattTrever McGheeArmando LiossMike ClancyJohn HardyRob SalzmanJason Hurtado DanielsAlister MacintyreTina ValeJohn KelldenBob MulhollandDaniel SandsteinJari HuomoGabriel FitzpatrickGiovanni TotaroRae OuztsDaniele VegaMelissa WalkerKimberly CrawleyShaun WheldenRichard Greenjohn sawyerWes ForsterMarko Shiva PavlovicWataru TengaDavid BeeAtheismJohn DoeMelisa BeliwiczErik BarrettAmy McLeodAaron StanleyJeffrey HarringtonJason MDaniel VoisinBill SewardAndrew HartwellJoys Maclaurinmatt vovakiss #CircleShare   #SharedCircles   #SharedPublicCircles   #CircleOfTheDay   #Engagers  2013-04-23 13:27:015013615

Anna Mannino2,231Whether you have told me you write, or you participated in #NaNoWriMo last year, this is my circle of writers. Strangely only 500 people can be shared at a time, so this is only most of you.If you'd like to be in my writers circle, let me know. I mostly post around and about NaNoWriMo stuff. I try to also do a lot of hangouts to help those who need the support of a local meetup but can't make their local meetups for whatever reason, or just prefer talking to strangers on the internet as opposed to strangers in a coffee house.

If your comment gets plus 1'd by me then you have been added. I will share this circle again at a later date with new additions.I also have a circle for users in Edmonton. If you are in Edmonton and wish to be added just note in your comment that you are in Edmonton.  I have added quite a few users from Edmonton in the last while. One thing I have noticed is many haven't filled out their profile. If you wish to have people follow you it's a good idea to fill out a profile and put it in why people might be interested in following you.Lets grow our circles!  :) #circleshare #circles #circlesharing #circleshared  2012-07-16 00:35:063512004

Marc Jansen17,871Sharing the LoveI freely admit that +Bearman Cartoons came up with this idea first (Hell, I'd better own up to that, considering that I publicly proclaimed my desire to steal borrow this idea on his thread!)This circle is made up of all of the people who've included me in very nearly 150 publicly-shared circles, as captured by +CircleCount.com.There are, or course, a lot of the Usual Suspects here, people like +Peter G McDermott , +Michael Anderson, +stephanie wanamaker , and +Eoghann Irving.What I found most enlightening is that fact that I actually found a handful of names that I didn't recognize here. People who have apparently taken some level interest in me without me even realizing it.

The evidence presented in the article points to this: higher levels of income inequality lead to higher levels of religion. Basically our societies require the narratives of religion to make sense of the social order when that social order is unfair.

If this is the case shouldn't atheists therefore be as interested in finding ways to reduce inequality and fight not just against religion but also against any system of thought that would increase those levels?

Consider Bangladesh where inequality is rampant. Families are so poor they need to send their children to work full-time making our clothing just to survive. They are also so religious when people dare challenge their religion groups of people hack the heathens to death. Because in a place like that religion is the only thing giving enough meaning to keep on living. The idea the religion might be false is equal to saying... more »

My wife started watching this recently and I cake to conclusion: pure propaganda.

I watch it in my peripheral while I play my video games and have noticed a good many episodes deal with situations follow the same narrative pattern and lead to the same outcomes. When I pointed it out to my wife she was a little pissed because it kind of ruined the show.

One example. Protagonist is offered help of some sort. Most often a cheque. They struggle the whole episode with if they should take it or not. It's usually a matter of pride. After pulling up their boot straps or owning up to their responsibilities they reject the help. Everything turns out golden and we learn a lesson.

Another article by Salon slinging criticism at three new atheist celebrities. This time the charge is that they ignore history and support policies that make the situation worse.

I agree. As someone not raised to think America is the greatest thing since apple and can do no wrong the way they approach the subject is indistinguishable from how a Muslim takes criticism of Islam. No amount of evidence or logic will sway allow them to accept any premise that might make America and its policies culpable in the violence around the world.

This. One can agree with Maher and Ali that Islamic extremism is wholly and totally an assault on liberal values, but so are totalitarianism and imperialism. To support the latter as a cure for the former is getting it tragically wrong. ___Another article by Salon slinging criticism at three new atheist celebrities.

Of course he doesn't mention in his case a good Christian creation based education is what he has in mind.

I love it when Ron Paul takes off the kid gloves. The message: we're probably doomed.

"There has been a steady erosion of confidence over the past 100 years as the American people as a whole have accepted the so-called need for big government to provide safety and security for its citizens. In the process they have readily accepted the personal income tax and the abuse of the IRS along with the illegal power of the money manipulators at the Federal Reserve to pay the bills by simply printing money. Unfortunately they have also convinced themselves of our “righteousness” by supporting force to spread American “greatness” throughout the world. This of course is a fantasy and is self-deceptive. This trend has been ongoing since the Woodrow Wilson era up to and including the policies designed by the current crop of neoconservatives.

Hardly has the educational system been enhanced by $1.3 trillion in student debt which is now currently being defaulted on -- all we have to show for it is a large number of graduates not well trained and without jobs available.

Something different is required than depending on government controlled education. Thankfully it’s available in the growing interest in home and private schooling. The Internet provides the vehicle for spreading the answer to the mess created by the authoritarian’s false promises to provide safety and security by sacrificing liberty."

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it,

“Naturally the common people don’t want war, but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.”

Harris is in my opinion an American apologist and propagandist. His popularity stems from having been able to deliver his rhetoric at exactly a time when it was what people wanted and needed to hear.

Two things did Harris in for me. One was a defense of Israel that preemptively addresses some of his previous comments about Islam and religion that could be applied to Judaism with arguments that he's claimed invalid when people used them to criticize his arguments against Islam. In this case arguments that socio economic conditions and levels of education have a large impact on how intensely religion holds sway and how literally the source is followed, therefore primarily blaming Islam for terrorist actions isn't a valid argument. Just like primarily blaming Judaism for what Israel does isn't valid. It's so shallow many people would rightly start to worry it's... more »

I'm not sure what to think about this exchange between Harris and Chomsky. It reminds me of some crappy, unsatisfactory arguments on G+. I did find interesting Chomsky's apparent ranking: disinterest in deaths caused by an act is worse than intending to bring about the deaths though an act. Also I wonder how Chomsky knew what Clinton's motivations were
and how Clinton felt (or didn't feel) about the consequences.

I also think that sometimes Harris' statements and views leave me cold. I'm also still trying to figure him out.

Ironically, I think both are well intentioned! :-)

The second is what he said his idea of a good life was. I find this of greater importance because contemplation of the good life is an ancient tradition in philosophy. I don't think anyone who thinks about the big questions can avoid defining for themselves what an ideal existence for humanity would be.

For Harris this is a good job, a nice house, and a nice little family. It is in essence the American dream, the white picket fence, the suburban life. Harris thinks the best life for all people on earth is the American life. An idea that also implies a life lived outside this American standard is somehow less than ideal. Flawed.

It's interesting that most philosophers define their ideal good life in less definitive terms. They express it more as a feeling or state of being. Something universal.

I think it could also be said if the American life is the good life then killing a few people is excusable if the intention is to bring them that life. In other words as long as America keeps saying they are just trying to spread democracy and freedom any war they engage in should be morally sound.

From a comment on the post I'm sharing from:

Who is going to be thrown under the bus? The people of every nation that signs the TPP.  The ISDS does challenge national sovereignty by allowing corporations to sue governments for losses due to regulations.  Warren is concerned about financial regulations being undermined, but it is all regulations.  If we sign, a Vietnamese corporation can start a toxic dump in your town, and when your local town officials have your sheriff stop the dumping because of local and state environmental regulations, the corporation can sue your town for lost profits in an ad hoc tribunal of three corporate lawyers, two of which are approved by the corporation.  How does it feel, under the bus?  http://www.scholarsstrategynetwork.org/content/how-dispute-resolution-provisions-international-trade-pacts-threaten-democracy-and-rule-law

On a conference call with a small group of reporters on Friday, Obama said criticism that the deal is secret “gets on his nerves the most.” In what appeared to be a shot at fellow Democrat Warren, he said critics can read the text of the agreement. A Democratic congressional aide confirmed that the negotiating text is available to members of Congress and staff with security clearances.

That word, you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means. If you need a security clearance to see it, that means she can't effectively debate or oppose bad provisions.___From a comment on the post I'm sharing from:

Well, Republicans are nothing, if not consistent. Having doubled down on “Supply Side” fantasies for 20 years, they promised that every tax cut for the rich would “pay for itself and erase federal deficits,” after the rich used the gifts to invest in productive enterprises. They never did. And so, instead, every such cut sent us into steep deficits and debt.
 
Now? They are doubling down on the voodoo. Switching to well-proved “demand side” would have hired half a million workers to repair bridges and infrastructure — things we will have to do anyway. But sending high-velocity cash through poor pockets and stimulating the economy would admit the Keynsians were right. Indeed, preventing that recovery is one reason the GOP blocked the Infrastructure Bill.http://www.was... more »

So, what do they want? To end the Estate Tax, a cut costing the treasury $269 billion over a decade, “that would exclusively benefit individuals with wealth of more than $5.4 million and couples with wealth of more than $10.9 million. That’s a tax break for only the 5,500 wealthiest households in the country.” And as proof of pure stupidity, the “populist” Tea Party movement backs up this proposal, to the hilt.
 
Read this article!  But it leave one thing out.  The Estate Tax need never be paid! Just create a foundation and use most of your riches to do some cool thing in the world, ion your name, instead of pursuing the ancient ambition of inherited aristocracy.
 
See the proof of supply side’s failures here.

No wonder they hate science and facts. Feudalism failed across 6000 years.  So those aiming to bring it back must rely — as the Lords always did — on incantations and fantasy.___

#AynRand  
QUOTE Ayn Rand was born Alissa Rosenbaum", in St. Petersburg in 1905. Her father, a pharmacist, was successful enough to buy both the pharmacy he worked in and the building that housed it. Her mother, foreshadowing her daughter’s future, named the family cats after American place-names. *The family employed a cook, a nurse, a maid, and a governess. It was a bad time, of course, to be Russian Jews, and also a bad time to be a prosperous business owner—to be both basically guaranteed disaster. The Rosenbaums were subject to strict anti-Semitic laws, the constant threat of pogroms, and—just as Alissa was hitting adolescence—the Russian Revolution. At 12, Rand watched Bolshevik soldiers march in and take her father’s pharmacy. He would never really work again, and she would spend her adulthood railing, from across the world, against anyone who used force to “loot and mooch” from productive businessmen. As violence escalated and the Russian economy imploded, the Rosenbaums were forced to leave St. Petersburg and move into a small unheated house in a resort town on the Black Sea.

QUOTE: It’s hard not to suspect, based on many of these childhood anecdotes, that Rand suffered from some kind of undiagnosed personality disorder. 

QUOTE: Toward the end of her life, Rand listened as a prominent psychologist stood onstage and dismissed her fictional heroes—those idealized steel barons and physicists and composers—as implausible. Soon she’d had enough and stood up in the crowd, outraged.       “Am I unreal?” she shouted. “Am I a character who can’t possibly exist?”     She intended this, one suspects, as a refutation. It strikes me as maybe the most profound question she ever raised.

COMMENT: So Ayn Rand was really a Russian Jew who repeated her father's outrage that his business was taken from him, and who called the people who took his business from  him 'moochers.' In addition, she was a liar. She did not make it on her own. She had relatives in America who loaned and gave her money, plus allowed her to eat for free.

Thank you so much Fox News for letting me see history being made so directly. As the American empire slowly crumbles under its own weight it's fascinating to watch your wealthy working hard to funnel the frustration and rage of the people away from them and onto the omni present invaders.

There are so many interesting things going on in this story. Such a precise use of language and rhetoric. People often call American cultural products cheap or empty, but there is technical brilliance in the propoganda unlike anything in the world.

Notice in the piece that one of the first points is to reference a poll that shows the majority of people agree with the argument of the article.

Are Republicans standing up forcefully enough for religious freedom? Ann Coulter told Bill O'Reilly she doesn't think so. ___Thank you so much Fox News for letting me see history being made so directly.

It's a good way to make an illegitimate argument, everyone else thinks so, seem legitimate. You could use a poll from New York that would turn out exactly the opposite. But seeing that poll gives the feeling everyone else thinks this way so maybe I should too. It's emotional manipulation.

Let's also think of the persecution myth itself. Good Friday is the day we celebrate the persecution, death, and rebirth of Christ. Here that same story and the emotional charge from the holiday are being drawn on to make the connection between Christ being persecuted and Republicans being persecuted. They want you to empathize with Republicans in the same way you empathize with Christ. Suggesting Republicans and Christians are one on the same.

The next thing to consider is how Ann keeps suggesting Christian and Republican are one in the same. She keeps repeating this over and over again. What's she's trying to do is convince you that an attack against Republican policy is an attack against Christianity. That's really the important idea they're trying to get you to agree with here. Successfully merging political and religious ideas means the politicians quite literally control the church and control how scripture should be understood.

Let's remember that it was Christian socialists who brought universal health care to much of the world. To say Christianity must suggest Republican political beliefs is flatly not true.

Just as it's not true the left hates Christianity. If anything the sentiments of the left, to put people above profit, can be more readily found in the Bible than the apathy and desire for violence seen on the modern right. If the left hates anything it's the ideologies of the right. It's those narratives that the left is opposed to. Not Christian ones.

For further proof of this I'll point to the politics of the most vocal atheists. All of them sit squarely on the right on every issue except social conservatism. And it has been my experience the most vocal atheists, the ones screaming for an end to religion, are in virtually every case politically on the right.

Which makes me wonder if all of these Christian lambs realize the same party and ideology they are supporting is the exact same one being supported by people like Sam Harris or David Silverman of American atheists. If the Republican way is so divine and holy how is it anti theists, who out right despise God, like it so much?

And how is it Christians don't have an issue with Republican sweetheart Ayn Rand? Some of these Republican saints you're so eager to support also have a relationship with the works of an atheist philosopher who clearly stated her work was the antithesis of Christianity. The exact opposite. A fact so true the Church of Satan uses it as the basis for its religion.

But what's really fascinating about the entire thing is how is shows the relationship between politics and religion in action. As the politicians make decisions where to take the country they shout it out to their followers, who then express it through their religion so they can feel they were the agents deciding to agree.

The article really fails to persuade me. I have no love for Baron Black, but he does make good arguments. A few points:

1. The old atheists were so much better than the new ones—wittier, better writers, more cogent, and less militant. This argument can be made only by those who have never really read Russell, Mencken, Ingersoll, and Mill; the claim is based on pure ignorance.

That's a pretty absurd claim if you know much of anything about Black. He's most certainly read all those writers and I would agree with him that they are much more nuanced in their arguments than anything Hitchens has ever written. Hitchens is entertaining to be sure, but he isn't on par with the names above. Not even close. 

I'll make this point clear with on of my favorite videos from Russell where he summarizes his ideals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8h-xEuLfm8... more »

Jerry Coyne tackles Conrad Black's recent "atheist bashing" in the National Post.

Several incensed Canadian atheists sent me a link to a truly execrable piece by Conrad Black in the National Post, “The shabby, shallow world of the militant atheist.” I didn’t really know who Conrad Black was, but many Canadians seem to, for all the readers mentioned his criminal past. Born in Montreal, Black rose to control a chain of newspapers, acquiring titles and huge wealth along the way, but was then extradited to the U.S. to stand charges of fraud and obstruction of justice. He served three years in Federal prison, was deported back to Canada (and can’t re-enter the U.S. for 30 years), but still retains his enormous wealth and his title: “Baron Black of Crossharbour, of Crossharbour in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.”___The article really fails to persuade me.

There is quite a gulf between that message and the one we hear from new atheists.

2. Without religion we wouldn’t have a good source of morality.  Seriously? Is Black ignorant of the long tradition of secular ethics beginning with the ancient Greeks? Or does he think that that morality is dubious if it doesn’t come from God? If that’s the case, does he know about Plato’s Euthyphro argument—to my mind one of the great triumphs of philosophy? Black says this:

. . . without some notion of a divine intelligence and its influence on the culture of the world through the various religions (though the principal religions are not interchangeably benign or influential) there would be no serious ethical conceptions. Communities untouched by religious influences have been unalloyed barbarism, whatever the ethical shortcomings of some of those who carried the evangelizing mission among them. Without God, “good” and “evil” are just pallid formulations of like and dislike. As Professor Lennox reminded me, Dostoyevsky, scarcely a naive and superstitiously credulous adherent to ecclesiastical flimflam, said “without God, everything is permissible.”

Plato's argument couldn't have been made without some notion of a divine intelligence. It is quite literally built on the notion of divine intelligence. While it might do a good job of raising hard questions about it, even dismissing it, the fact remains the idea of God is needed to even make the argument in the first place.

Furthermore, from a historical and sociological perspective, Greek philosophy was the religion of the Greeks for a period of their history. Platonism itself can be defined as a form of theism. So Black's point about having no serious ethical conceptions without religion does hold strong here.

That’s palpably wrong. Atheists are no more immoral than religionists, and we don’t engage in killing other people in the name of our nonbelief, nor do we try to force ridiculous strictures about sex, diet, and genital-cutting on everyone else.  The more atheistic countries like those in Scandinavia and other parts of northern Europe are, if anything, more “moral” (and less socially dysfunctional) than highly religious nations like America, Saudi Arabia, and much of sub-Saharan Africa.

Black isn't saying explicitly that atheists are immoral. A better retort here, instead of pointing out all the bad things religions have done, would be to point out that a society can grow past needing to think of God in a literal sense, and function quite effectively in a secular manner. Just like how the Scandinavian countries grew out of theocracies.

3. Atheism is a “faith.”

You have to acknowledge here that Black is using the definition of atheism as a belief there is no God. I know, in the atheist community atheism is a lack of belief, but that isn't as standard a definition as atheists pretend it to be. Really believing there isn't a God is something that requires faith because even though that's the most probable situation, it isn't something that can be supported with evidence. 

But so what? We all have beliefs in things we can't say have solid evidence. What should matter is how good the evidence we do have is.

4. Science isn’t leading to progress, just to more mysteries.

Agreed. Poor argument.

5. The idea of a multiverse is “diaphanous piffle.”:

Nor can the atheists ever grapple plausibly with the limits of anything, or with the infinite. They rail against “creation” — but something was created somehow at some point to get us all started. They claim evolution debunks Christianity  (though all educated Christians, including Darwin, acknowledge evolution) — but evolution began somewhere. When taxed with the extent of the universe and what is beyond it, most atheists now immerse themselves in diaphanous piffle about a multiverse — but the possible existence of other universes has nothing to do with whether God exists.

Black has a point. Things like evolution and the multiverse are very weak arguments against God. They might do a good job of showing us religious myths and stories are untrue, but that can be done in any number of ways. A good many Christians have given up thinking these stories to be literally true themselves a very long time ago. The only places you see this today are in pockets of the world with low levels of education.

6.  Religion is the repository of right and wrong, and that, rather than the truth of scripture, is its value.

Religious practice can certainly be targeted as a pursuit of the hopeful, the faith-based and the uncertain. But they badly overreach when they attack the intellectual underpinnings of Judeo-Christianity, from the ancient Judaic scholars and the Apostles to Augustine to Aquinas to Newman; deny the existence of any spiritual phenomena at all; debunk the good works and cultural creativity and conservation of the major religion; and deny that the general religious message of trying conscientiously to distinguish right from wrong as a matter of duty and social desirability is the supreme criterion of civilization. The theists defend their basic position fairly easily and only get into heavy weather when they over-invest in the literal truth of all the scriptures — though the evidence for veracity of the New Testament is stronger than the skeptics admit, including of Christ’s citations of God himself: “And God said …” [Black’s ellipses]

Scripture does have value in so much that it contains the philosophical history of our culture if we like it or not. In exactly the same way the works of the Greeks contain the philosophical history of our culture and of Christianity. If more people could understand that value and take it for what it is, instead of taking it literally, we'd all be better off.

Stumbled on this whole looking for people to argue with in my what's hot thread.

Fantastic article. Instead of focusing on why objectivism is so wrong, the author looks at the type of person that is drawn to it, splitting people into CSI types and Columbo types. This reminds me very much of the split you often see in atheist communities. Where the CSI types are entirely incapable of understanding how a religious person might need religion or how they tend to divide things into facts and beliefs where facts are the things they believe while everything else is faith.

#AynRand   #Objectivism   #Cult   #Psychopathy  
For Justin Templer, the Objectivist Psycho!
"Objectivism works by describing a certain type of person who is probably not weak minded enough to join a traditional cult or even a supremacist movement. But they probably were born with some of the traits that can lead to Objectivism. They are also less likely to be total social failures than the people who join such movements. A potential Objectivist may well be at the top of general society in some respects, like education or income. But such people have strong deficiencies in other areas, like empathy or imagination. These are people who tend to be emotionally immature and possess low emotional intelligence. More likely than not, they feel separated from other people and/or lack social skills. So it’s easy to sell them on the idea that this is all evidence of their superiority."___Stumbled on this whole looking for people to argue with in my what's hot thread.

This kid is sure going to remember this birthday. Send him a text and remind him the world isn't filled with assholes.

Can you spare a moment (and the cost of an SMS) to text a happy birthday wish to a special 13-year-old? He's an Aspie going through some tough times (freakin' bullies), and could use a pick-me-up on his special day.

Apparently, his mom tried to organize a bowling party for him, but nobody has RSVP'd, so she's relying on the power of the internets to flood his phone with birthday texts: 705-808-3086

I'm completely with Sagan here and have ruffled quite a few feathers arguing for what he's saying here.

It used to be the word atheist was a positive denial of God. It meant you held the belief there was no God. It wasn't until Anthony flew came along and wrote an essay that Richard Dawkins later read and repeated in his own book that this idea that the word atheist automatically implies doubt came into being.

Of course after people started pointing out some atheists don't have a single ounce of doubt about their stance on God the solution of attaching the prefix agnostic or gnostic was created. Which is absurd. Instead of having three words we now have at least nine combinations.

And why? So that we can group people into theists and atheists and make atheism a political force. So we can say smugly we are the superior group with real knowledge of reality.... more »

Was commenting on a post elsewhere that rambled on and on. So I thought I would share it so it doesn't feel wasted.


I just wanted to add my own reasons, besides the demonstrated behavior here on G+ of people who adopt the label, of why anti-theism is stupid.

I'll point to two major events in recent history to make the point: climate change and the Iraq war.

In the first example we have the potential for loss of life that dwarfs just about anything in history. Be it directly caused by flooding in places like Bangladesh, or indirectly from wars caused by the strain on resources, as we have seen in Syria, it could be an event that pushes us near extinction.

In the second example we have seen direct causalities ranging from half a million to a million depending on the source and continuing violence from the insurgency and now from ISIL. I think we are... more »

In the second example we have seen direct causalities ranging from half a million to a million depending on the source and continuing violence from the insurgency and now from ISIL. I think we are safe to attribute many of the attacks here in the West to that war as well.

In both of these cases we can't say religion doesn't play a role in perpetuating the problem. Creationists certainly make passing policies to battle climate change very difficult and Islam is fashioned in such a way that when it comes to defense of their nations and identity Muslims will die rather than submit to anyone except Allah.

However, as much as these contribute to the problem, it's irrational to say, as anti-theists often do, that religion is the primary problem.

In the case of climate change this can been seen easily by looking at countries other than America (I know it's shocking to think America isn't the world standard) where it is political ideology driving the fight against action. 

In my own country, Canada, our Prime Minster is only nominally Christian. For the majority of his life he was a self-professed agnostic and secularist. It wasn't until he rejected the centrist ideals of our Liberal party for the right wing ideals of American inspired Libertarianism that he publicly adopted an Evangelical Christian label.

In fact, before 2005, our Conservatives deviated from Conservatives south of the border by being strong advocates for action on environmental issues. Hence why Canada had developed a reputation for environmental concern.

But, after 2005, with the help of right-wing think tanks from America and funding from the oil industry, our conservative party was restructured. The payment for the service was future access to our oil sands and aggressive de-regulation of the energy industry to allow American companies more freedom to make profit at the expense of our environment.

It worked fantastically! Canadians can now proudly say we have one of the largest carbon producing oil operations in the world and are one of the most vocal opponents against action to fight climate change.

This had almost nothing to do with a surge in religious sentiment. While it's true part of the restructuring included opening new Evangelical Churches and pushing Creationism, doing so was a conscious effort on the part of political strategists, who understand it is much easier to push against climate change when people believe certain things like God coming to the rescue or the Earth being 6,000 years old.

However the problem here isn't religious. It's political. It's the political ideology. Before that ideology was introduced into our political discourse, as I said, even our Conservatives were committed to evidence based decision making and to protecting our environment. At that time our right wing would be better classified as left wing when compared to American political parties. 

Except for the anti-theist the problem with all of this isn't politics at all. It's the religion. Instead of looking at the root cause of the problem, which I would say is building policy on ideology instead of evidence, they think the issue is the religious people. They think if those religious people left everything would be fine, the ideology would be fine, and things would just be peachy. 

Since I've already written too much I won't go into detail about Iraq except to say anti-theism does the same in that case: it shifts the blame from American foreign policy or political ideology to religion when it shouldn't. Any population in the world would react pretty much the same way if subjected to the injustice the people have the middle east have been, but in the same way a rapist will blame the woman for dressing a certain way, the victim is blamed.

That's why anti-theism is stupid. Because it thinks the solution to the world's problems is everyone thinking and acting and believing exactly like the anti-theist. It is, in almost every aspect, the same as a Christian saying all the worlds problems are the result of people falling away from God and not being Christian___

"The violent conflict in Syria has been going on for almost 4 years forcing almost 4 million people to flee their home and seek protection with UNHCR in the neighbouring countries. We saw a risk of people losing focus on the humanitarian emergency and wanted to get people's attention.

Google is an everyday tool for people and can transport us to other places in a microsecond. By using Google search we were able to cut the mental distance between us in Sweden and emergency in Syria. It made it real."
