Don’t Talk About Beliefs, Without Justifying They are True and How You Know This.

To me talking god is a failed proposition as if what is being claimed without evidence could involve real facts, when it is just make believe. How do you know if, where, how, why the term god entails and what valid method did you employ to establish such claimed knowledge, and is the method you have confirmed reliable in other non magical claims? If its believed to be a justified method, how are you confirming that you are property equipped to utilize it fully to trust what you think it could show?I follow the standard in philosophy Justified True Beliefs = knowledge and when such knowledge reaches a high or the highest epistemic standard it can be dubbed epistemically certain.To established justification I use the philosophy called Reliabilism. Reliabilism is a general approach to epistemology that emphasizes the truth-conduciveness of a belief-forming process, method, or other epistemologically relevant factor. The reliability theme appears both in theories of knowledge and theories of justification. For the true part I use the philosophy called The Correspondence Theory of Truth. The correspondence theory of truth states that the truth or falsity of a statement is determined only by how it relates to the world and whether it accurately describes (i.e., corresponds with) that world. For the beliefs part I use what philosophy calls The Ethics of Belief. The “ethics of belief” refers to a cluster of questions at the intersection of epistemology, philosophy of mind, psychology, and ethics. The central question in the debate is whether there are norms of some sort governing our habits of belief-formation, belief-maintenance, and belief-relinquishment. Is it ever...

The God Fallacy

The God Fallacy is that there is no epistemically warranted or justifiably reliable evidence for god(s) existence; most ideas offered are stretches of unreason promoting seemingly implausible knowledge or reality claims. Moreover, beyond this is the self-evident realization that there is no reliable and /or verifiable evidence that could be used to define what god term actually is or could be assured to involve. Because it is never good to just randomly conceptualize or fabricate from bias trying to force connections into existence. epistemically warranted or justifiably reliable evidence or even a preset of proofs that do not hold gaps a believer want to fill with an arbitrary beliefs things need a god explanation and yet again what does god even mean. One his furthered nothing with god talk until they offer clear links to understand what could rightly make up the empty term g. o. d. (Group Originated Delusion). Any reasonable thinker should conclude that clear links to any knowledge are required to comprehend what to ask, where to look, or what to state is involved. This would seem especially important since what is on the line is the actual truth or falsehood of the great believed “IT” of somethingism. Do you wish to just assemble or make up your god thinking as you go, greedily forcing anything that seems slow enough to not get away or is the actual truth in reality you seek even if godless as finding the true is the main pursuit, as your aim is what true right, taken with the deepest integrity? One should desire such intellectual rigor in order to even...

Religion and Science are Completely Different Epistemologies

Some try to say that science and religion ear not that different saying they both use faith. This is utter nonsense, not only does science not use faith as a method for anything, religion and science are completely different epistemologies. Scientists reason differently than most nonscientists because of a standardized focus on scientific based reasoning and scientific epistemology.   Basic outline of scientific epistemology:   Science: Hypotheses (Rationalism/Deductive, Inductive, or Abductive Reasoning etc.) + Testing (Empiricism/Systematic Observation) – Checking for errors (Skepticism/Fallibilism) + Interpret/Draw a Conclusion (Rationalism/Deductive, Inductive, or Abductive Reasoning etc.) *if valid* = Scientific Laws (describes observed phenomena) or Scientific Theory (substantiated and repeatedly tested explanation of phenomena) = Justified True Belief = Scientific Knowledge = Epistemic Certainty supportive of correctability   *being epistemic certainty is believing a truth has the highest epistemic status, often with warranted psychological certainty but it may not, neither is it a requirement*   Basic outline of religious epistemology:   Religion: Culture/Testimony/ Myths/Scriptures/Revelation/Prophecies (arbitrary and unjustified way of coming to ideas or Idealism) + Mysticism, Supernaturalism, Spirtualism, or Theology (arbitrary and unjustified to form explanations, Idealism or misuse of Rationalism; often self-justified or even believe they are beyond a need for justification) – Denial of Relevant Alternatives and Basis (Fideism/Dogmatic Foundationalism/Pseudo-Skepticism/Anti-Rationalism/Anti-Empiricism or Anti-Skepticism) + Superstition, Falsehood, Misconception, Fantasy, or Delusion (unsubstantiated ideas and unjustified way of coming to ideas or Idealism) = Religion Reality Theory = Unjustified Untrue Faith Belief = Religion Faith or Beliefs as Knowledge = Unwarranted Psychological Certainty supportive of incorrectability   *being psychologically certain believing a truth does not mean that something is not actually false* By Damien Marie AtHope   Science...

Near Death Experiences is Brain Activity, not Supernatural

More evidence that near death experiences are related to brain activity, not the supernatural. Many think they leave their body and up above their body can look down on things and thus say this is proof of life out side of death. But this is just more wishful thinking as always. To date, six studies have tried some form of this method, mostly on cardiac-arrest patients, and all have failed to find an ironclad case of veridical perception. All involved placing some stimulus—a picture or a symbol on, say, a piece of paper or an electronic display—in a high location, visible only if you were floating near the ceiling. The research designers did their best to make sure that nobody—not the doctors or nurses, not the patient, and not whoever interviewed the patient afterward—would know what the stimulus was until after the interviews were over. The Science of Near-Death-Experiences Evidence Near-Death-Experiences are not Supernatural Illustration from Anthropogenie showing “very early”, “somewhat later” and “still later” stages of embryos of fish (F), salamander (A), turtle (T), chick (H), pig (S), cow (R), rabbit (K), and human (M) We are evolution not some special creation. It is a flaw in reasoning to think that we evolved naturally and then somehow magically got some supernatural soul. When in the evolution of humans do you think magic happened to make humans have a soul to live after death anyway? Simply there is none, belief in souls or life after death is just wishful thinking. We are not magic filled nor are we that different than other primates…. In fact the chimpanzee and human...

I Blaspheme the Unreal Unholy Bible Spirit called gOD

I have blasphemed the holy spirit before but every once in a while I do it again to inform others. I will gladly do it again and again. I regect the holy spirit as a worthless vile myth spawning lies and intellectual dishonesty. I regards the holy spirit as magical thinking trash the lingering negative fantasy imposing fear on the misinformed or misguided. If I missed anything you think I need to say to complete or confirm for anyone that I have fully blasphemed the unholy unreal spirit you let me know so you can fully confirm for you. See I live to dispel the irrational beliefs connected to the nonexistent bible god. I do this wishing others see the real truth behind the lies I was one uninformed and superstitious as I was a Christian for 36 yeas then in college learned real truth and how to think removing invalid thinking like faith in gods or ghosts holy or otherwise. For those who don’t know I have just joyfully blasphemed the holy spirit as in mark 3:29; Matthew 12:32 “Whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven either in this age or in the age to come.” This verse as much of the bible is stupid and when viewed with critical thinking is superstition no different than a new age mystic saying if I discount spirit guides I will lose my aura. So scary, not. Mythology is good for fantasy movies but valueless as a way to manage reality.  I wish the need for doing Blasphemy wasn’t an issue, then we could focus on things that...
