    Do you agree?

    Please provide the reasons.

      I don't agree. I may not be an atheist, but I find that all paths are true and right. There is no one faith that can dictate what the rest of the world must think. There is also no religious path that can prove it's more effective or correct than any other path.

    Hey paar. You're really grasping at imaginary straws now. Common sense might have told you this was a ridiculous idea for a thread. Or not. I've asked some silly questions myself.

    So. What's the end game? Conversions of atheists to Islam? If that's your goal, you might try a different tack. Not sure this is working in your favor. smile

      The fact is he is not even a Muslim. The Muslims consider his sect a blasphemy. May be he is desperate to get some followers!!

        Well, that doesn't make him not a muslim any more than Mormons or JWs aren't christian. He's just got a different take on things.

    The majority of the world who have common sense reject atheism agnosticism skepticism; so at the most the atheists agnostics skeptics subscribe to a little of common sense being a reasonable share they are entitled to.

      You think this world is abundant with common sense? Take a look at todays news, listen to the extremists muslims and christians on talk radio then tell me about all this common sense that religion possesses.

        There is a lack of common sense everywhere in all people of all religions and atheists alike.

        Where us the sense in burning a Quran? Where us the sense in beating women for not wearing Islamic dress? Where is the sense in atheists trotting out all the anti-religion rhetoric?

        It's because of a lack of common sense that bankers gave us a recession and the UK gov spent all our money. No religion or atheists to blame here.

          The sense is in helping people to actualize as people not sheeple. smile
          I'm ok with the rest of it, the shot was a cheap one.

            Ernest it's one thing for the atheist to put together a well thought out argument but what we see here on this forum is often something far from that.

            The ridicule and belittling that we see from some atheists gets tiresome. Though some of the statements from fundies are so outlandish and ill thought out, I imagine it is hard to restrain from making sport.

            My last comment wasn't intended as a cheap shot. It's born out of frustration. sad

              Fair enough. Why don't we try to investigate using what we do know to throw light on the subject. I have tried in the past, so have many others. Like yourself, we find it frustrating.
              I have never, not even once in over 2 years had a sensible or logical debunk of any of the peer reviewed information I have provided in the past, just another quote from someone's version of someone else's reconstruction of what someone else was said to have said from a 2,000 year old book of myths and psychological archetypes. smile
              I find many passages in both bible and quoran to be psychotic.

                May be psychosis is a disease more related to the atheists skeptics agnostics.

                If it is non-existent in them; they may prove taht none of them is ever afflicted with it.

                They don't have a code of life; they are incapacitated to write one if they all combine.

                Science does not belong to them; it is part of Religion.

                  Science lives in a real world.
                  The fact that it has little or nothing to say about myths, and no interest in them is quite natural.

                  or maybe you haven't a clue about psychology.

                    Religion is based on deep psyche of man developed under evolution set by the Creator-God.

                    Psychology is the science of mind and behavior; psychologists don't create anything; they only discover at a given time what is hidden in the psyche of man. Psychology is truthful only to the extent it gets ratification by the psyche of man; not the other way round.

              It is long time they, the atheists skeptics, used to say something reasonable; now courtesy Richard Dawkins ( and hiding behind Stephen Hawking) they have only left with ridicule and derision.

              It is appropriate if they, the atheists skeptics become sober; they may entertain the people as a pastime however; never mind.

            They the atheists skeptics do have a little one of sense sometimes; if they stuck to arguments and reason; they seldom do it however.

            Courtesy Richard Dawkins (and hiding behind Stephen Hawking) they have opted to derision and ridicule.

            I don' mind if they entertain the people as a pastime.

    The Atheists Agnostics Skeptics are just mediocre people like others; so they can only have a proportionate share of the common sense; some atheist here claimed of , not more.

      Any portion of common sense would eliminate most religions in 10 minutes study if one started without indoctrination.
      Try it. Point your student at the hate passages in your religious tome and their own morality will save them a ship load of time studying the rest of the patches built on later to disguise it so it has to be seen "in context"
      I do not need context to know what is right or wrong.

    I heard a saying in a movie once that really stuck with me... "The person is smart, but people are stupid".
    So I am going with... "the few" actually having common sense, while the majority have what they believe is "common sense"
