    I understand what you’re getting at, I always assumed atheism to be the more drastic measure of no God (my interpretation of not believing in a God). Perhaps because, while reading into the […]

    I didn’t say they believed both options, I said they believed in the possibility of either option being true. If they believed that there was no possibility of one of the sides being true then […]

    Regarding the coin flip, my point isn’t that a force cannot act on the coin before it lands on the ground, my point is that whatever force may act on it will not just appear out of random. The […]

    Someone took a pen and began to write a song,
    Written symbols brief yet somehow profoundly long,
    Breathless, abstract, but filled with life and rage,
    Will into words, as their heart filled up the […]

    You can also try Wattpad, which is a site specifically for literature. It’s a large community with regular contests and definitely a good starting stage to get noticed by publishers too (if you’re into that).

    One thing that I think is worth a mention is randomness. I can’t wrap my head around true randomness, because it isn’t something we’ve ever faced before. Nothing about our world is actually random, when you […]

    Part of your definition for atheism seems to coincide with that of agnosticism. A quick Google search (and just the knowledge I’ve been raised with) shows me that atheism (Greek root meaning […]

    Good topic :) . I don’t see how religion can definitively precede morality (I know you took this as an assumption but I’d like to touch on it), they’re different things. Whether it’s […]

    @hopefullylesspretentious I think this could be a good idea, you can always make a thread within a group since it’ll still show up in the “On The Forums” section and attract attention. It might be something I’m interested in doing too, this would ideally generate discussion and can be a good form of group learning (gathering insight from…[Read more]

    Why do you think that you have no motivation? Typically, people endure classes that they don’t like because they have to take them to get the degree they do like (so the end point is the motivation). You don’t like the degree that you’re studying? I don’t know your mother, but one possibility is that she might want you to stick with this for…[Read more]
