Myth as Fiction

yggdrasilWe don’t look for any truth other than that which can be proven through facts and experimentation. There is no physical evidence that God exists, so some take the approach that since it can’t be proven that He does, then he automatically doesn’t. Right or wrong in this illustration, even the theist views things in this same way.

Blame It On God

I am a frequent lurker over at Rainn Wilson‘s brainchild Soul Pancake.  I find the discussions thought provoking.  And I like that all religions are allowed to present their views and that, with a few exceptions, all of those views, even the views of the atheists, are respected and the discussions remain fairly civil…at least as far as internet discussions go.

If you don’t believe me, you can listen to the segment here (click the link entitled ‘McCain’s Pastor Problem”; the atheist caller is near the end). I sat there and listened as the caller was chided and then let go from the phone lines. I got out of the car before I could hear any commentary that may have followed. Continue reading
