Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

<quoted text>Yes yes yes- we already know that the sheldon coopers of the world have no room in their iddy biddy minds for anything but facts. Faith is a nonmeasureable thing that cannot be quantified, weighed or presented as evidence in a court of law (or a high school science fair) so it is unacceptable- we already got that, sport. Here's the easy way to do it- go back and look at your quote and pretend I wrote it- that should make it easy.
You have no proof of god and don't know when to shut the f*ck up about your faded bashed in the courts 2005 creationist cult.

In short? Faith is delusion.
Or bluntly, faith is lying to yourself.

How sad, atheists have no faith. Not in themselves, their families, their abilities, their jobs, their vehicles, their lawnmowers, their hygeine, their spouses, there kids, their dogs, etc. how sad to be an stheist.

The above bullshit? Is classic godbottery:

The godbot in question is falsely equating multiple-meanings of the word faith into a single, delusional meaning.

This is one of the classic ways to LIE.

He seems unaware that "faith" can mean many things.

FACT-BASED faith is one thing-- all people use this mental short-cut, all the time.

But NON-FACT based faith is RELIGIOUS faith-- and is just formalized lying.

It is truly sad to be such a liar, as in the above...

Sad that you have to post what you know to be lies about others. why is that? to compensate for your lack of rational thinking?

to compensate for your lack of being able to defend the cult you know you cannot defend but are to weak personally to divest yourself from? what an ugly life that must be...

You have a lot of say about atheists, but no proof to back up the cult you lie about every single day.

Its pathetic how you can even shows your face here while providing no evidence for your mental illness applying to anybody but yourself.

There's no such thing as 'atheist philosophy'. Atheism is merely a disbelief in the existence of any deity. Atheism, in and of itself is not an epistemological system with premises about how we know what we know. At best, it uses other epistemologies to reach its conclusions about what we know about whether there is a god. Atheism does not, in and of itself, propose any system of ethics that arises necessarily out of the non-existence of god. It merely proposes that we must look somewhere other than to god for the basis of ethics.

Ayn Rand and Josef Stalin were both atheists. Beyond their agreement in the non-existence of any deity, what else do you think they have in common as far as beliefs? Pretty much nothing. And that is sufficient to disprove the existence of any supposed 'atheist philosophy'.

Isn't ironic that an xtian would accuse anyone of twisting or "leaping" things?
I mean, their whole religion is based on make believe.

That is why I prefer to say blind faith instead of just faith. These people will search for any loop holes to sprout their shyt.

Yes, "blind faith" is more descriptive, if a tad redundant.

:)

In Topix, on these atheist threads? I tend to ignore all the various definitions of faith, excepting for one: religious faith, or as you so aptly say, blind faith.

That simplifies my comments, but can lead to sometimes confusion, if ever we get a god-botherer who actually understands a bit, that the word "faith" can have more than one meaning.

These are rare-- most do not understand such subtleties, though.

And in their simple minds, they actually do confuse all the various meanings as being but one: blind faith.

Silly they-- failing to recognize that one can have faith that is based on evidence and fact.

This is likely because they've never considered anything beyond their own narrow mindset.

What a waste.
