Ad Hominem attacks, straw men, red herrings, circular reasoning, this really is the way it goes.

Far too often, this is how my conversations with atheists go.

I don’t think additional commentary is necessary.

Atheist: There is no such thing as objective morality.

Me: You know that people who have that belief usually only do so because absolute morality offers proof that God exists, right?

Atheist: That’s stupid.
God has nothing to do with morality.

But since you mentioned it, I don’t believe in God, no reasonble person believes in anything without evidence.

Me: I believe in God and that morality comes from God.

Atheist: Of course.

It’s nice to know I’m talking to…

Devastating Arguments Against Christianity (Courtesy of the Internet)

An interesting article with some things to think about. Definitely worth the read.

I’m writing this post primarily for my own convenience. During my online journeys to r/atheism, “freethought” blogs, and beyond, I encounter the following arguments so frequently that it seems sensible to fact-check them all at once.

The Claim: “Religion has been the primary cause of war and oppression throughout the history of mankind.”

The Truth: In their comprehensive Encyclopedia of Wars, Phillips and Axelrod document the recorded history of warfare. Of the 1,763 wars presented, a mere 7% involved a religious cause. When Islam is subtracted from the equation, that number drops to 3.2%.

In terms of casualties, religious wars account for only 2% of all people killed by warfare. This pales in comparison to the number of people who have been killed by secular dictators in the 20th century alone.

Criminalizing Innocent Christian Behavior

Where are all the atheist freedom lovers we always hear about? It’s time for them to start standing up for religious liberty.

The left and militant gay movement are getting bolder and bolder, and too many Christians are stewing in their apathy.

It seems that with each passing month, this senseless tyranny advances. The latest is that two Christian ministers in Idaho, Donald and Evelyn Knapp, have allegedly been ordered to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies at their chapel or face fines or jail sentences.

This nightmare began Oct. 7, when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals invalidated Idaho’s marriage laws and legalized same-sex marriage in that state, which allowed Idaho county clerks to begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses a week later. On Oct. 17, the Knapps declined a request to perform a same-sex wedding ceremony.

According to a lawsuit filed by the Knapps, the…

Canadian shooting underscores who the real terrorists are

After murdering an unarmed Canadian soldier on Wednesday, an Islamic terrorist drove to the Canadian Parliament and ran inside.

Armed with a rifle, he intended to commit even more damage, but was thankfully brought down by the Sergeant at Arms.

Anti-gun activists have already pounced on this shooting to call for more stringent gun control laws in Canada. But one author contrasted the Parliament attack with another Canadian terrorist attack using a car:

Situational Awareness and Positioning (part III)

A previous post discussed The Tueller Principle, or as Dennis put it originally “How Close Is Too Close?” In light of the above incident, The Tueller Principle and two related concepts bear further clarification and quantification.

A concept that is seldom discussed in the personal protection community, among either instructors or practitioners, is proxemics. The term proxemics was originated by a cultural anthropologist, Edward Hall, in his book The Hidden Dimension.  Its meaning is how we, as humans, interpret and manage the physical space around us. This should be an integral part of planning for personal protection, but usually is not.

Professor Hall’s work breaks out several spatial zones that we perceive around us. Most important to us regarding…

There are so many times in a day when you have to let people into your space. I think we have to accept it. My tolerance changes radically when I’m in transitional areas like parking lots etc.

It’s important to take context into account when speaking about SAP. There’s been some commentary about my post that I must not live in a big city or ever take the subway. Since I grew up in Chicargo and live in Atlanta, that’s not true. I ride public transportation quite often, even when I don’t have to.

The comment about transitional areas is on point. Rarely are we concerned about being robbed or beaten up in line at Starbucks. The video of the dude getting mugged in NOLA recently is more our concern and representative of the positioning I’m getting at.
