Reviewing: ‘Criticism of Atheism & Proving the Validity of Islam | E2 How did atheism begin’ – SciPhi

Reviews From time to time Dave and I do reviews, be it of sites, situations, podcasts, books, or videos. We find it a nice change of pace and a way to gain a different perspective and test our knowledge. Sometimes the person/people we review communicate with us and we strike up a great dialogue and learn from each other, which is always our hope. Our Review of ‘Criticism of Atheism & Proving the Validity of Islam | E2 How did…

God is Dead – SciPhi

‘God is Dead…’ “God is dead, and we have killed him”. Or so Nietzsche’s madman proclaimed. As atheism becomes more popular, Nietzsche’s madman becomes more relevant. We discuss the madman’s words, and how they relate to atheism in the modern-day. Many people misunderstand what Nietzche was trying to say with his ‘God is Dead’ statement, so we hope to clear this up as well as addressing a number of issues, good works, or lack of, being done by theistic and…

It’s a Load of CAC (Reviewing the ‘Official Definition of Atheism’) – SciPhi: 034

Is there an ‘Official Definition’ of atheism? Atheism is polysemous, so anyone telling you they have the ONLY definition of atheism or those other definitions of atheism are WRONG is completely off the mark. With how language works, any definition of atheism, or any word for that matter, is perfectly valid. There are terms that are contextually correct, and there are more useful ways to define terms. There are some definitions that allow us to accurately infer ontological positions, and…
