    The teleological argument used to convince me. It doesn't anymore.

    The teleological argument used to convince me. It doesn't anymore.

    Of all the apologetics I hear, the teleological argument, or the argument from design, was the one that used to convince me the most.  I would look at the universe and be in awe of its size, majesty, and wonder.  It really is an amazing universe!


    I used to think this was so impressive.  This universe must have been designed.  Look at all the things that look like they've been designed!  And even though we know my thoughts on this eventually changed, why did this flimsy argument hold my attention for so long?

    I want to talk about why apologetics work, and why I used to be convinced.  Spoiler:  I know realize it is nonsense.

    But, religion makes me so happy. Why would I give it up?

    But, religion makes me so happy. Why would I give it up?

    Ever heard this, "But my religion makes me happy.  Trying to be more like jesus makes me a better person.  Why would I want to give that up?"  I know you have.  I'll not deny any of this.  Religion CAN make you happy.  People who get better by trying to emulate jesus often DO get better.  How could something do this much good, and still be bad?


    Let's look at why religion makes people happy.  Can trying to be more like Harry Potter be just as effective?  Is religion doing this, or is it something else?


    Religion trys to be awesome, but it can't beat the awesomeness of this show!

    A bit of this and a bit of that.

    I don't have a topic, but when has that stopped a show.  Let's hang out together and just talk about whatever comes to mind. 

    This is a stream of conscience show, and tonight, it will be even more off the cuff than normal.

    When I broke up with god.

    When I broke up with god.

    It's not a religion, it's a relationship.  We've heard that before.  Does that mean that when we leave religion behind, we have to break up with god?  And when our parents, friends, and relatives still want to hang out with the ex, that can make for a very weird holiday weekend.  


    Let's compare breaking up and losing god.


    It will be more awesome than getting dumped.

    If there is no heaven, is there no hope? Guess my answer.

    If there is no heaven, is there no hope? Guess my answer.

    I think some of the most difficult beliefs we apostates have to leave behind are those concerning the afterlife.  Hell terrifies people for decades after one becomes an atheist.  The loss of heaven can be mourned like the loss of a close relative.  


    So what's the atheist to do with this?  If heaven leaves us, are we without hope?  I think NOT!  I think the only heaven worth wanting is the one we have been charged to create here, in the real world.  Now.


    Let's make the awesomesauce we want to see.

Andrew Garber presents an interesting podcast sharing his thoughts on atheism and welcomes input from other people whether they agree with him or not. Clearly he enjoys what he does and it shows in his positive attitude and fun personality. I look forward to all his new podcasts and enjoy his company in my car on my travels.
