Atheism vs. Agnosticism by Sisyphus on December 20th, 2009, 3:59 pm

Austin Cline wrote:Atheism vs. Agnosticism
What's the Difference? Are they Alternatives to Each Other?

Question:
If atheism is just disbelief in gods, then what is the difference between that and agnosticism?



Response:
Many people who adopt the label of agnostic reject the label of atheist — there is a common perception that agnosticism is a more “reasonable” position while atheism is more “dogmatic,” ultimately indistinguishable from theism except in the details. This is not a valid position to adopt because it misrepresents or misunderstands everything involved: atheism, theism, agnosticism, and the nature of belief itself. It also happens to reinforce popular prejudice against atheists.


Prejudice Against Atheism, Atheists

Agnostics may sincerely...

redacted extended retraction by Char0n on June 5th, 2014, 2:58 pm
*bleep*... thats all you get... ultimately... and universally... in the end... i mean this isn't caddyshack... and bill murry and on his deathbed... and enlightenment is a gift... either you know someone who knows how to grant it to you or you're doomed to repeat the cycle of samsara and reiterate the history that built in the odds that you will come back next as something less...
its like area 51 in here... jeez... i mean you hear about qoans that find you a way of high-fiving the g-host like sticking your tongue in a zippo... i mean you hear about qoans that do your homework for you and until the standardized tests proove otherwise... psalm 1 is right about those who are unworthy... then again i would only pay 6cents for a piece of buddah nature...
there is chair nature and there is table nature and there is nature's way and then there is all of the artiface of us... and where is the line between the artificial nature of the chair and the natural nature of the chair... but ultimately...

Poem I by Hendrick Laursen on August 22nd, 2014, 3:19 am
Why we do know not, what is the truth.

How much I regret that, very last day of you
That my philosophy of life, was then due to.
Yours eyes wide open, directed to Sun
A thin line of tears, of your eyes had run.
Orient was dying behind the mountains
Orange was the sky, bemoaning fountains.
Western sky bloody, horizons red
Eastern sky gloomy, like the death's bed.
The truth was naked, ahead of our sight
Just death didn't give you enough might.
Hence you didn't know the prime truth then.
This was why we do, not know the truth.

Summer plans. by Nick on June 9th, 2009, 11:07 am
Now that my undergrad degree is all but over (except for a fairly pointless poster day) I've finally got my plans for the summer sorted out. Basically I have three weeks off before moving over to Geneva for two months working on the Compact Muon Solenoid's (CMS) electromagnetic calorimeter. It's not entirely set in stone what I will be doing with it. Possibilities include analysing some test beam data or some newer cosmic ray data. There'll probably be some shifting thrown into the mix too. Whatever I end up doing it'll be fun being back over the summer while all the summer students are there. I'm also hoping some of the friends I made while I was a summer student last year will be back. (Of course I would recommend any physics/engineering/computer science undergrads apply for the summer studentship, it's probably the most fun (and best paid?)...
