01) What Atheists ACTUALLY Get Wrong About Christianity


“I’m an atheist who constantly criticizes Christianity, but I’ve got to voice some criticisms of the ideas that some atheists have about Christianity and religion in general. Don’t worry, I’m not espousing cultural Christianity or defending “Judaeo-Christian values” like Jordan Peterson or Ben Shapiro. I just want our criticisms to be as effective as possible. Hopefully no one takes the positions I criticize here as representative of what atheists believe in general.

Let’s stop needlessly arguing over theology when we have secular scholarship at our fingertips.”

01) Camille Paglia: Provocations


“Much has changed since Camille Paglia burst onto the scene with her best-selling Sexual Personae, but her laser-sharp insight, matchless wit, and fearless commentary continue to be ahead of the curve—not only capturing the tone of the moment, but often anticipating it. Ever an intellectual firebrand, Paglia will share her always provocative takes on religion, the rise of the right, the state of LGBTQ activism, presidents past and present, and more, in her newest book, Provocations—a collection of essays, articles, columns, and interviews drawn from the full span of her wide-ranging and important career as a public intellectual.

This program is generously underwritten by Ellen Stone Belic and presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.

This program was recorded on October 30, 2018.”

01) Ridiculous Protestors Shut Down Speech In Oxford (Steve Bannon)


“Steve Bannon was invited to speak at the Oxford Union last week, and he only just about made it there in one piece. The attempts by protestors to prevent access to the talk sparked a debate in the university surrounding the limits of free speech and the right to protest. If you ask me, the evening was a shambles, and people are mostly doing nothing but talking past each other. One thing is clear, however: those blocking entrances to a talk at a private institution should be ashamed of themselves and think carefully about the lasting repercussions of condoning such behaviour.”

I’ve been saying this same general thing for decades.

Why Theists Can’t Convert Atheists…

01) Why Theists Can’t Convert Atheists


“Do atheists ever find god? How can you make an atheist believe in god? Can you convert an atheist? Well, if you’re a theist, the answers to those questions might disappoint you. Theists often don’t understand atheism in the first place, and even when they do, they often use faulty arguments to prove god’s existence. When I came out as an atheist, I was bombarded by bad arguments for god, and that still hasn’t changed much. So, I thought I’d give theists some advice on how to talk to atheists.

It strikes me how so many “My conversion from atheist to Christian” type stories involve emotional reasoning. The Kalam cosmological argument, Paschal’s wager, the ontological argument, the argument for design, and the like don’t seem to convince many atheists, and those with decent critical thinking skills don’t seem to convert.”
