• So, a circle drawn on a piece of paper, or chalkboard, is a round 3 dimensional object? . . ... Christians say they are.....?

    Technically yes if you consider the depth of the chalk or the indentation of the paper. They are meant to represent a 2D object but if you consider the actual depth, it is 3D object. What you mean to say is that christian mistake even a 3D circle for a 3D sphere. A coin is a 3D circle because it clearly has depth. Of course if you spin a coin on... show more

Of course if you spin a coin on it's axis, it appears to be a sphere. Maybe that is why the earth has to spin so fast lol.

  • What do atheists think of the parrellel universe and multiverse theories?

    Technically they are not theories, at least in the scientific sense, but it seems reasonable to speculate that there are other universes considering we know of one that actually exists.

    This was a tough question for me but I will have to say genetics. There are just certain genetic traits that give a person a leg up. There are people born alcoholics who have never drank, but it is a demon that they constantly battle to stay away from while a person without that gene doesn't give alcohol a second thought and it is one less obstacle to tend with. When we talk about "natural" talent or abilities, we are talking their genetics. Nurture can be an obstacle to genetics, meaning a person can conform to nurture if need be, but genetics will ultimately take over.

    Socialism never works and for good reason, our human nature. Our human nature is always going to be corrupt, even if we think we have the best intentions. Socialism begins with the government giving power to the people, which sounds good but that power in every case is quickly taken by the government itself leaving it's citizens in despair every single time and again for good reason. Socialism destroys the human spirit by taking away the benefits of attempting to get ahead in life, with the promise of redistribution to the less fortunate. It's like a successful couple with two children to support being told by the government that they now have thousands of children to support. When it comes to other adults, the question becomes why are they not supporting themselves? As the government becomes more greedy for power, those who can produce income leave the country and go elsewhere so that they can still achieve success. Those who cannot leave, give up trying to produce income because the government is just going to take it away. Socialism is about equal outcome where the outcome is always poverty and misery. Capitalism is about equal opportunity, where the greed is placed in the hands of the citizens to get ahead, not the government. If a citizen is willing to do what it takes, they get ahead financially. Not all citizens like to play this game and some citizens not willing to work for success want everyone else to be in the dumps with them. There will always be legitimate cases of people not being able to play the game that will need assistance, but people are greedy and do take advantage of our welfare system, this even includes the rich if the government provides a give away plan, such as tax loop holes or money to do or not do something.

    I would say the beginning is always the best place to start. Perhaps skim or skip the who begat who part. It was actually reading Isaiah that led me to believe the NT writers reversed engineered Jesus, where there are no prophecies for Jesus, but rather the NT borrowed many OT verses in describing Jesus, where the OT writers were clearly referring to Israel and not Jesus. In particular is Isaiah 52 and 53 about the suffering servant that is clearly Israel and it's people, with Isaiah repeatedly defining the servant as Israel. Even the past tense being used to indicate the servant has already been pierced for the transgressions 700 years before Jesus was even a thought. Then you have Isaiah 7:14 using a child named Immanuel as a sign for his king, but Matthew 1:23 saying the child was about Jesus, even calling Jesus "Immanuel" to demonstrate that Matthew was drawing upon Isaiah for his lie. Isaiah 8 makes it clear that "all" of Isaiah's children are "signs" for his country, proving again that Matthew lied. After understanding what the NT writers did, rereading the OT helped may see many instances of the NT borrowing from the Greek translated OT called the Septuagint because of the many Hebrew mistranslations they introduced into their writings. One writer mistakes two instances of the same colt and has Jesus riding into town on two donkeys. It is amazing how the bible can seem so intact one minute and then fall completely apart when looked at from a different perspective.

    It is true that nonexistence cannot leave evidence, which is why the burden is always on those claiming existence or possible existence to provide the evidence that should be left by this existence or possible existence. This however does not mean we cannot prove nonexistence. By understanding what a circle and a square are, that is enough information to prove the nonexistence of square circles. The contradiction in terms is what makes the concept of a square circle impossible. While atheism doesn't have to be about "knowing" Gods are in fact impossible, you can actually know why they are impossible for the same reasons you can know square circles are impossible. Atheism simply means you are not a theist. Not being a theist doesn't have to be about knowledge, it can be simply finding the claim of magical super Beings existing unbelievable and unsupported. When I first learned about the concept of God at age 12 by my first christian friends, it sounded unbelievable. I did not rule out the possibility that they were correct, I was simply skeptical of this magical claim and needed some "good" reasons to accept they might be correct. It was only in my early 30's that I decided to investigate the claim in detail and learn why it had no credibility and finally accepted the label of atheist even though technically I was an atheist the whole time but more of an agnostic atheist turning into a gnostic atheist after my research. Try to think about a definition of God that does not contradict something we already know to be true. Even getting past the definitions, the concept of a God contradicts that natural order of existence, which is always from simple to complex over time. There is not one thing that naturally forms or gets created by humans that does not happen without a series of simple steps over time to produce the more complex or finished product. This contradiction to the natural order places the concept of God into the square circle category, meaning the concept is imagined with a mountain of evidence supporting this imagination.
