atheism
I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God. George Herbert Walker Bush Article IX, Sec. 2, of the Tennessee constitution ("No Atheist shall hold a civil office") states: " No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments shall hold any office in the civil department of this state." Arkansas , Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas have similar laws. An Atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.

Atheism and Agnosticism
First published Tue Mar 9, 2004
1. Atheism
Scientific Thought (Broad 1923) held that the chemical properties of common salt could not even in principle be deduced from those of sodium and chlorine separately, at the very time at which the quantum theory of the chemical bond was beginning to be developed. Though the mind has seemed to some to be strongly emergent from its physical basis, it can be argued that developments in the philosophy of mind, cognitive science and neuroscience favour weak emergence only.
2. An Adequate Concept of God
Foundations of Arithmetic One thing that will not differentiate the theist from the atheist is to say that God, if he exists, is necessary in the sense of not being dependent on anything else for his existence. The atheist will say that the universe fits this bill because the universe contains everything that there is and so is not caused by anything else. It is indeed hard to see what an adequate conception of God and his necessary existence could be. For the purposes of this article, let us explore what the relations and lack of relations between atheism and agnosticism could be. Here we shall neglect the requirement of necessary existence and in a later section we shall consider the case of a posteriori a posteriori argument in which the hypothesis of a purposive creator is put forward and claimed to be justified much in the manner of any scientific hypothesis.

Atheism - Definition
For information about the band, see Atheist (band)
Atheism is the condition of being without theistic beliefs and alternatively the disbelief in the existence of deities . In antiquity , atheism was represented by Epicureanism . It disappeared from European philosophy when Christianity became dominant. During the Age of Enlightenment , atheism re-emerged as an accusation against those who questioned the religious status quo, but by the late 18th century it had become the avowed position of a growing minority. By the 20th century , atheism had become the state-supported position of countries governed by communism , as well as the dominant position amongst scientists, rationalists , and humanists Contents showTocToggle("show","hide") 1 Etymology

Etymology
In early Ancient Greek , the adjective atheos (from privative a- theos "god") meant "without God, godforsaken, abandoned by the gods". The word acquired an additional meaning in the 5th century BC , expressing total lack of relations with the gods, that is, "denying the gods, godless, ungodly", with more actively atheistic connotations than "impious". Modern translations of classical texts sometimes translate

This is a draft article , under development and not meant to be cited; you can help to improve it. These unapproved articles are subject to edit intro Atheism entails the absence of belief in the existence of God or other deities It is contrasted with theism , the belief in one or more gods . Definitions of atheism vary in range (from disbelief in specific conceptions of God to disbelief in anything supernatural in degree (from a mere absence of belief to a positive belief that gods do not exist), and in recognition (from the implicit unbelief of an infant to an explicit statement of non-belief). The term originated as a pejorative applied to anyone thought to be "godless" or believe in false gods; this included those having opinions that stood in conflict with the established religions. Monotheistic views were deemed atheistic by polytheistic believers; early Christians, for example, were persecuted as atheists by authorities of the Roman Empire . Today, the term "atheist" is used less disparagingly and with a more limited scope.

Agnostics say that there is no way to know whether gods exist or not. but they may (or may not) still believe in one or more gods. A person may believe in God by faith , but still accept the philosophical position of agnosticism. The theologian Kierkegaard is an example.

State promotion of atheism as a public norm was first practised during a brief period in Revolutionary France . Only socialist states have done so since. State atheism may include active opposition to religion, and persecution of religious institutions, leaders and believers. The Soviet Union had a long history of state atheism, in which social success largely required individuals to profess atheism and stay away from churches; this attitude was especially militant under

Concerning individuals adopting an atheistic worldview, atheism has a number of causal factors that influence its origination in individuals which will be addressed. In addition, critiques of atheism will be offered and some of the historical events relating to atheism will also be covered (for example, since World War II a majority of the most prominent and vocal defenders of the theory of evolution which employs methodological naturalism have been atheists).

Atheism Atheism is the system of views denying the existence of God and usually other religious ideas such as life after death. Inasmuch as the concept of God generally represents the dominant forms of consciousness of an age, atheism is historically associated with political radicalism.

(See also Monotheism Theism Deism Agnosticism and Pantheism The ancient philosophers listed above speculated that phenomena had natural causes, in opposition to animist or other religious or teleological beliefs. This kind of atheism was necessarily nave and speculative as they did not have a sufficient basis of empirical knowledge to develop a consistently atheistic view. The Middle Ages in Europe were dominated by the Church and atheism made little progress, while in China atheism experienced a series of setbacks and forward steps, where no church ever gained a serious foothold. Progressive social currents tended to attack the legitimacy of the Church in Europe or to restrict the relevance of Church doctrine, unable to reject the existence of God outright. Meanwhile, in the Middle East, the golden age of Islam embraced questioning and all forms of scientific pursuit, thus Islam never faced a direct philosophical assault. The European assault against Christian Theism : Saint Augustine for example, was the first Christian to question the literal interpretation of the Bible, opening the way for

Quotations about Atheism:
Woody Allen (attributed): "To you, I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition"
Anon: " Almost every American denies the existence of Artemis, Baal, Cybele, Fergus, Thor, Wotan, Zeus, and thousands of other gods and goddesses. The difference between a Christian and an Atheist is that an Atheist either actively denies the existence of the Trinity or has no belief in the Trinity. The difference is truly insignificant. It is only one part in many thousands."

Secularism and atheism: a discussion at the Institute for Advanced Study
posted by Charles Gelman Stefanos Geroulanos’s An Atheism that Is Not Humanist Emerges in French Thought —the subject of an ongoing forum here at The Immanent Frame—was taken up for discussion last week by participants in the yearlong seminar on secularism being held at the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton, NJ. The seminar, conceived and directed by Joan Wallach Scott —who, having completed The Politics of the Veil felt the problematic of secularism to be too compelling to leave behind —brings together scholars from a plethora of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, and with a wide range of cultural and chronological focal points, so as to advance inquiry into how, by whom, and to what ends the secular has been defined (and its definition, deployed) historically and today. Tomoko Masuzawa —the first of three commentators to address Geroulanos Similarly historiographical concerns were also at the fore of Judith Surkis’s subsequent commentary.

For first-time visitors Be sure to visit this site's official weblog, Daylight Atheism! Foundational Essays The core of Ebon Musings , these essays refute theistic belief, justify atheism from the ground up, and lay out the foundation for an atheistic worldview.
  • All Possible Worlds
    The problem of evil - the question of why pain and suffering exist in a world supposedly ruled by a morally good god - is the oldest and most enduring argument against many varieties of theism. This essay presents a concise formulation of the problem from evil and argues that theists have failed to provide a satisfactory answer to it. A Ghost in the Machine
    An enduring theistic dogma is that each of us is inhabited by an immaterial soul that confers on us our consciousness and survives the death of our bodies. This essay powerfully refutes that notion, drawing on the evidence of science to establish that our minds arise from nowhere but our physical brains. The Ineffable Carrot and the Infinite Stick
    Some theists claim that atheism offers no standard for moral behavior, even encourages immorality. This essay falsifies that claim by establishing the source of an atheist's ethics, and then turns the argument on its head by exposing the problems with the theist system of reward and punishment. Life of Wonder
    One of the most ingrained societal prejudices about atheism is that it necessarily implies a bleak, purposeless life without hope or meaning. This essay confronts that prejudice head-on and demonstrates that atheism is fully compatible with all the things that make life worth living.
