[Fallacies] What If Your Premise Is Wrong?

Posted by Lex Fear on February 8, 2009

HT to Purify Your Bride for this YouTube clip:

Rather than answer the question, Dawkins makes the presumption that the young lady in question is “brought up” in a Christian home and then turns the question back on her.

I’d love to see how Dawkins addresses someone like me who was brought up without beliefs, dabbled in the occult, rejecting the faith of Jehova’s Witnesses, going from atheist to agnostic and opened myself up to whatever kind of higher power or beings were out there before becoming a Christian.

I don’t know why supposed intellectual people cheer for someone who so obviously doesn’t want to accept the possibility of being wrong.

However it appears that Dawkins has softened his stance on the existence of a higher power himself more recently, as Mattghg writes.

It seems Dawkins, though tirelessly never to admit he is wrong, considers there may be something “grander and more mysterious” than God out there after all. Of course by suggesting this we get in to all sort of ad infinitum arguments, and I’m surprised he would take it upon himself to answer the the old atheist chesnut “Who created God?”.

Maybe if Dawkins’ only personal objection to God is that the idea of ‘God’ for him is… boring.

[Torture Works] End of The War Against Terror?

Posted by Lex Fear on March 15, 2007

The man behind it all has confessed – to EVERYTHING – from plotting to assassinate Pope JP II to 9/11 – proving torture works. Can we all now get back on with our lives?

Terrorism is dead, long live King George (and poodle, Tony)!

Adding a new sidekick: Mattghg, utilises the power of words and draws from deep knowledge and understanding.

Not sure how this sidekick thing is going to pan out, since I already has a links page and referrer list…
