|Interested:||in Men and Women||Occupation:||Not Saying|
|About Me:||I love science and philosophy, and am mainly interested in biology and anthropology. I enjoy debating theists, deists, polytheists, spiritualists, etc. etc. (especially creationists, they are so much fun!)|
|Beliefs:||I am a philosophical naturalist, in other words, I believe there is a natural explanation for everything. I hold no religious or "spiritual" beliefs, however I do believe that humans are generally good, and we should derive our morals from rational thought and empathy rather than from 1000 year old mistranslations that advocate the murder of children.|
|Books:||Pretty much anything written by Tolkien, A Song Of Ice And Fire by George.R.R.Martin, Paul Stewart's kids books, Malcolm Gladwell's excellent books, Dawkins' books on religion and evolution, I could go on and on and on...|
|Movies:||LOTR, Labrinth, anything that makes me feel like a 7 year old.|
|Music:||The old cliche, I listen to "all types of music" although I mostly listen to folk music as it makes me feel like i'm in a big field.|
|Quotes:||"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof" - The Hitch|
"What can be asserted without evidence can be dissmissed without evidence" - Another Hitch line there.
"No amount of belief makes something a fact" - Neil Degrasse-Tyson (I think?)
|TV Shows:||Penn & Teller BULLSHIT, James Randi Psychic Investigator, Game Of Thrones, Horizon, Big Bang Theory|

I will be arguing from the position that the argument from morality, as used frequently by theists like William Lane Craig, is not a valid argument. The first round is for acceptance, but my opponent may post arguments if they so wish....
I will lose this debate. First round is for acceptance....
First Round is for acceptance of this only Understand that my approach is suppose to be scienctific or of a scientist not a philosopher like William Lane Craig and other debaters attempt to do. So its a little bit different with only one exception, I won't be using scientific terms. I expect you to debate and argue under this context: I am arguing that the God Hypothesis indeed qualifies as a scientific explanation as well as the best one for several reasons. It is a rationally conceived h...
First round is for acceptance. I propose that so called "faith schools" are wrong, and should be outlawed. I believe that religion belongs in RS lessons, not ingrained in the curriculum of a school, and I would like to see some convincing arguments that oppose my views. No rules, just don't let this turn into a flame war esque exchange....
