Axiological atheism

Axiological atheism: is a constructive Value centered ethics driven atheism which rejects the existence of gods in favor of a “higher absolute,” such as humanity and society. This form of atheism favors humanity as the absolute source of ethics and values, and permits individuals to resolve moral problems without resorting to faith or god myths. Axiological or constructive atheism conveys messages of liberation, full-development, and unfettered happiness. Axiological or constructive atheism life meaning in humanity, ethics and values surpasses one of the most common criticisms of atheism that denying the existence of a god leads to moral relativism, leaving one with no moral or ethical foundation or renders life meaningless and miserable. Axiological Atheism can be thought to involve ethical/value theory reasoned and moral argument driven atheism, anti-theism, anti-religionism, ignosticism, apatheism, secularism, and humanism. Axiological Atheist, can be understood as a value theory or value science Atheist. As such axiological atheism’s ethically reasoning is constructive and pro-humanity. We who believe we are thinking rational, leading to opposition or hate of religion may that be limited to the nonfactual or oppressive ideology and not the people. Beyond just not being something lets be something, rational thinking should challenge myths but also prove our love for humanity and care for all living beings. In most cases, Axiological atheism would assert the traditional concept of “Atheism” answers only a single question: Is there a creator god or not? That is an important question, but if your answer is “no”, it is only a starting point and not a way of life. You may have reached that viewpoint based on your respect for logic,...

David’s Punishment for Rape? God’s “Forgiveness and Baby Killing ” (2 Samuel 12:11-14)

David’s Punishment for Rape? god’s “Forgiveness and Baby Killing ” (2 Samuel 12:11-14)   “god says: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.’ Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against god.” Nathan answered David: “god on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned god by this deed, the child born to you must surely die.” [The child dies seven days later.] This is evidence of one of many sick and vile unethical quotes in the bible. The claimed bible god himself brings the completely innocent rape victims to the rapist. What kind of pathetic loser would do something so evil? And then he kills a child! This is unethical to the extreme, really sick and vile! http://www.evilbible.com/evil-bible-home-page/rape-in-the-bible/   So, when bible believers say homosuality is wrong do to the wishes of the bible god or that not believing is such a horrific god myth is wrong, because their bible thinks so. This shows that claimed bible god, if real, is a truly immoral and horrific unethical monster not worth getting advice on ethics from, ever. Sexism in the BIBLE: chapter and verse! Rape, Sexism and Religion? The only thing that causes rape, is a rapist. Religious Trauma...

I reject that even the term god has any valid coherent meaning outside myths.

As a Ignostic Atheist I reject that even the term god has any valid coherent meaning outside myths. Ignosticism, or igtheism is a theological position that is similar to theological non-cognitivism which views religious language as not cognitively meaningful or connected to atheological thinking in general which is opposed to theology; thus is atheistic by default. If followed to its logical end Ignostic thinking concludes that the entire question about God’s existence is a non-question and that feeling a requirement to take a yes, no or even ambivalent position is absurd. Ignostic thinking is based on an expectation of strong critical rational analysis of any proposition including the existence of the god concept. As with any topic, and especially in the realm of the supernatural and woo, the subject of any debate should be coherently defined. If one offers a clear definition of an entity, then in order to take a position whether it exists or not the definition of the entity must be one in which its existence can be falsified (there is a rational and logical method by which we can test the existence of the subject as it has been defined). Few if any theists ever offer a clear definition of their god concept other than faith in myths. The few who do offer a definition of what a god concept could involve almost never offer one in which the existence of that such a god concept could be tested. The rare if ever falsifiable definition offered regarding some believed god’s existence is easily falsified. And so as with any subject (such as the existence of almost...

Empiricism-Denier

Empiricism-Denier: “Empiricism is self-refuting. Empiricism is nothing more than a philosophical faith. Empiricism is an idea that is not able to be tested by the scientific method.”  What such a “Empiricism-Denier” seem to not get is Empiricism is part of the scientific method (to me the scientific method has these presuppositions, it employs some expression of Methodological Naturalism and Scientific Realism. Then to me the scientific method is roughly broken down philosophically as a process of rationalism, empiricism, and methodological skepticism. Beyond the internal philosophies, experiments are basically the most important part of the scientific method arranged to test a hypostasis which are a conjecture, based on information obtained while formulating the question to test, because the scientific method employs a null-hypothesis standard as the general default position that all offered hypothesis are false. Thus, for a offered hypothesis to be seen as true it must prove itself by disproving the null hypothesis and showing grounds, warrant, and justification for believing that offered hypothesis reality accurate.” The philosophic processes being used for the scientific method in its experiments are presuppositionally using a correspondence theory of truth mindset, 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). A presupposition in general is an implicit assumption or an implied though often not plainly expressed agreement about the world or some background thinking/rationalisation(s)/belief(s) relating to propositions, claims, beliefs, statements or assertions that expresses a judgment or opinion. If one can understand how to see and expose hidden but agreed to presupposition a supernaturalist holds we can then use...

Questioning an Energy Afterlife?

Questioning an Energy Afterlife?   “Damien, physics says energy and matter never disappears, it just changes form. An example is water, steam and ice. Our hearts and brains use electrical energy. This is demonstrated by EEGs n EKGs. What us your opinion of what happens to this body energy upon death. I have opinions but I would love to hear yours.” – Challenger   My response, we know what happens energy leaves the body through loss of heat and it dissipates into the environment. The energy you speak of has no mind nor is it still you, its just background mindless energy like all other mindless thoughtless energy nothing special and no longer you. Energy no matter where it comes from simply has no mind with which to even stay you if it wanted to, as it is brainless.   “Mr. Damien AtHope, Energy exists even if someone doesn’t believe it does.” – Challenger   My response, Well, energy doesn’t have a mind nor intentionality outside of psychics so its only something natural no added magic.   “Dead is Dead” no ghosts, spirits or souls…...
