    While I consider the decline of religion to be a positive thing, in this case it seems to be because of political affiliation rather than because of critical thinking. I'd think that those who leave...

    No it does not.



    Might be true, but it is irrelevant.

    No, the definition of socialism is not "a mixed economy". Look up the basic definition of the term instead of abusing it.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that freethought is pretty much the same thing as skepticism in that it is about how we know, rather than what we know or believe. It is about...
  8. Getting skeptical about the concept of philosophical naturalism

    Internet Infidels, once in the distant past the mother-site of this forum, is dedicated to philosophical naturalism. They define it as:



    I can't help but feel that this has too many unwarranted...

    To re-connect to the OP, I think it has been discussed here before that quite a few atheists are into New Age or pseudoscience. Or at least you can't assume that an atheist will be scientifically...
  10. Then this Zoidberg guy is talking out of his ass.

    Just because it can be doesn't mean it is dominant. You are engaging in wishful thinking. Of the political parties in our parliament, only the Left Party has socialism as a declared ideology, and...

    I don't think that UBI is a good idea. Finland had a run with it to test it out, and it will not continue. They were dissatisfied.

    I never had much trust in the idea. But I don't mind testing...

    There was more to it than that even. Once we set up there 'to protect Saudi Arabia,' we never left, which was a complete insult to devout Muslims (really pissed off an unknown at the time by the...

    Marxism huge in Sweden? Since when? Newsflash for you, we never belonged to the East Bloc.

    And religion has not "completely collapsed" in Sweden. It is pretty fringe, but it has not collapsed....
  14. Yes, you were wrong.

    Yes, you were wrong.

    That might well be true. But to my mind, it doesn't justify the Iraqi annexation of Kuwait, or make the expulsion of them from Kuwait unjust.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah. And also, religion is often transmitted through culture and society, and religiousity can be vague. Neither is the case with the flat Earth movement.

    The Arabs swept much of the Middle East due to Islam. Without Christianity, I don't really see how Islam could have arisen.

    Magical thinking has always been with us, either in the form of traditional religion, or in the form of spirituality/New Age.

    I don't really understand why the Gulf War was so disliked. Iraq annexed another country, in clear violation of international law, and I don't know of any data that the Kuwaitis wanted to live under...

    I do not. But did they invade Crimea and throw Russia out?

    No?[/quote]

    Your argument was that the Iraqi annexation was not a threat to Americans, therefore it was wrong to bother. I pointed out...
