How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
JSMG

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO,...

Human dominance on Planet Earth, will soon be superseded by sentient, electromechanical devices.

JP1016

Human dominance is waning. Younger generations are already slaves to electronic devices. How long before we no longer call the shots. Fear not though. This is not stuff of horror movies or nightmares. This is simply evolution in progress. Rules: 5 open rounds. Use your own brain power. No referencing other peoples work/theories. 100 words max, per round. (Not 8000 characters) Enjoy!...

Yes, I think he will be a good president for many reasons like he knows how to run things! Donald Trump is a successful business man and he will make us successful as well. He isn't in office and he has done so much already like saving jobs from going to Mexico and creating jobs in United States. He has talked to many foreign country which will make our alliances stronger so countries have our backs. He has a great plan to lower taxes which will decrease the price of everything and also raise mi...

KthulhuHimself

The rules are simple. My opponent accepts the challenge in round one, and presents ONE of his strongest arguments in favour of the flat earth.

In round three, I will present my rebuttal for my opponent's strongest argument, and my opponent presents him counter-rebuttal for my refutation. Round four is where I present my counter-rebuttal for my opponent's refutation, and since round one is more or les...

And yes, I am aware that this debate has been done hundreds of times.I am going to argue that God, the almighty creator depicted in the Holy Bible, is not benevolent, or...

Should we be allowed to clone

21frykahla
SavvyShafe

No, we shouldn't be able to clone because it devalues human lives. If you clone yourself then you are just a copy there is nothing special about you. The success rate of cloning is very low and it is very expensive. If I was to have a pet that died then why would I spend $100,000 to get an exact clone of the dog when I can buy like 4 dogs for that price? We might even develop a new disease from forming new genes. People who are cloned maybe viewed differently or viewed as a lesser citizen then a...
