My All-Time Favorite Posts on Common Sense Atheism

by Luke Muehlhauser on February 4, 2010 in General Atheism,Indexes,News

This page will be updated to list my own favorite posts that I have written for Common Sense Atheism.

  1. My Fondest Memories of God and My Story
    These are my most personal posts on this site. They tell the story of my best times with my best friend, Jesus, and how I later came to believe that he did not exist – perhaps the happiest and saddest moments of my life, respectively.
  2. Do Atheists Have Less Purpose and Hope?
    The simplest explanation of what it’s like for me to be an atheist.
  3. The Enchanted Naturalist’s Guide to Reality
    Some people think the world is empty and sad and meaningless without God. This posts explains why I’m so enchanted by the amazing, natural world I was born into.
  4. Sean McDowell and Theistic Morality
    My one-post take down of the moral argument for God’s existence. Probably the most important thing I’ve written here.
  5. Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman (review)
    Wherein I criticize one of the most popular atheistic books of the first decade of this century.
  6. Who Designed the Designer?
    Wherein I criticize one of the most popular atheist arguments of all time.
  7. Atheism and the New Sincerity
    An absurd universe need not lead us to cynicism and irony. This is a call to embrace life enthusiastically, in all sincerity.

“I demolish..” isn’t very philosophical. You make your case, and others consider it. Hopefully strong cases are well received and accepted. Don’t be a cyber-warrior! Self-proclaimed winners seldom are.

I was surprised when I read your criticism of ‘Who Designed the Designer’.

You took a very careful approach to deconstruct an argument that’s more of a dismissal than a real argument. When I’ve heard people use that phrase, its used as a dismissal of any god of the gaps explanation. I’ve never heard anyone use it as a serious argument against a gods existence.

Its an atheist talking point.

Revyloution, don’t bother. Such points were made frequently in that thread, I made the same point as early as comment #2, but lukeprog prefers to ignore such comments because he’s too busy patting himself on the back.
