ATHESIM – MORAL AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS blog

What is the ‘Cause’ of Being?

Many Thomists find great consolation in the thought that St.Thomas himself was an Aristotelian philosopher, or, if you prefer, that he was an Aristotelian insofar as he was a philosopher. It would be wrong to contradict them, for it seems as hard to refute this assertion as it is to prove… Read More ›

What is the Moral argument for the existence of God?

The moral argument begins with the fact that all people recognize some moral code (that some things are right, and some things are wrong). Every time we argue over right and wrong, we appeal to a higher law that we assume everyone is aware of, holds to, and is not free… Read More ›

PHILOSOPHY & RELIGION

Both philosophy and religion are widely used concepts, yet defining them accurately can be challenging due to the wide range of meanings that each has acquired over time. Because religion is a derivative of an ancient Latin phrase that referred to the relationship that existed between man and the gods, most… Read More ›

Agere Sequitur Esse – Action follows Being

Aquinas and other Scholastic philosophers frequently make use of the principle ‘agere sequitur esse’ (Latin for “action follows being” ), which means “action follows being.” The underlying concept is that what a thing does must necessarily reflect what it is in some way. Because their structures are different, the functions of… Read More ›

THE EVIDENCE OF REALITY

We do not wish to dissuade you from continuing to read this; yet, in the spirit of complete honesty, we should state that there is, in a sense, just one good reason to believe in God: it is true.There are numerous such evidences, but they all contribute to our understanding of… Read More ›

GOD’S RATIONAL CHOICE

In the philosophy of Leibniz, the ultimate logical decision was God’s choosing of the finest of all worlds. God is both a necessary entity and author of the universe in that he creates the world that he considers the finest of all worlds. (Possible Worlds in the Tahâfut al-Falâsifa: Al- Ghazâlî… Read More ›

Nietzsche – A VALUE REVALUATION

A recurring element in the thinking of Nietzsche is a fundamental reassessment of moral concepts. He makes a decisive contrast between two sorts of morality in ‘Humans, All Too Human.’  One of these theories is the development of governing groups and persons.  ‘Good and bad is for a long time the… Read More ›

Nietzsche Struggles!

In several cases, Nietzsche termed himself a ‘psychologist’ instead of a ‘philosopher.’ What he meant has nothing to do with any behavioral science in the physical sciences. In the first section, Human, All Too Human, he utilizes the metaphor of ‘sublimation’ derived from physical chemistry to depict the conversion of the… Read More ›

Nietzsche Within

It’s pointless to try to categorize Nietzsche’s ideas into standard philosophical categories like idealism or materialism, rationality or irrationalism. He is sometimes lumped in with the group of philosophers known as “existentialists.” This is an arbitrary and, in some ways, inaccurate category that has fallen out of favour as a result… Read More ›

THE IDEA OF GOD

It is what man will be bound to recognize when he looks at the Truth of the Idea of God, namely the Truth of God as being God’s, independent but not inclusive of the thinking of the person, and the Truth of the working in man by God as an integrative strength, but not in him, which he is working in, as the necessity of a process of spiritual integration.

Watch “Self Righteous” on YouTube

Atheist seem to live within a realm that defies the existence of others. Dictating self righteous pious condemnation against any sense of reference apart from their own.It is a world view that is incoherent and obscure and only exist within those whose own depraved existence is only for self and nothing… Read More ›

Was Bertrand Russell an Atheist or an Agnostic?

Agnosticism is hardly a novel position, as it can be traced in the 20th century to philosophers like Russell, known to the public at large as “that atheist philosopher.” Yet agnosticism rarely, if ever, has received a sustained philosophical defense.

Distinguishing Atheism, Theism, and Agnosticism

What if it can be shown that there is a reasonable alternative to traditional Christian theism (on the one hand) and atheism (on the other)? Among other things, this would suggest that the defeat of orthodox Christian theism does not necessarily and in itself spell doom for theism.
