ATHESIM – MORAL AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS blog

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 ›

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.

The Argument Against Atheism

Free will is the notion that we independently undertake our actions and choices, and therefore are responsible for them. But at some point during our stay on the planet, we come upon the question of whether we are the true authors of our own actions. Is free will only an illusion? Are we unwitting pawns in a world of determinism” — a world where we take action not because of our own volition but because of all of the circumstances that led to that moment?

The Argument for Atheism

God is only a social safety net, which makes us feel secure, given that we live in a cold, nasty universe. Evolution demonstrates that things developed randomly, and we slowly mutated over millions and billions of years to be the intelligent species we are today

ATHESIM-Is Morality Self Supporting

There remains one last objection to the moral argument for God, which has been made by some theistic philosophers as well as by atheists. The objectors claim that moral truths are necessary truths.

ATHESIM-Are moral values brute facts?

A second attempt to reject God as the basis of morality is to view objective moral values as brute facts in a godless universe. There are objective moral values, but they are not related to God, because there is no God.

ATHEISM

Atheism is not a new concept. Even the Bible speaks of the one who tells himself in his heart,“There is no God.” The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”    They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds;    there is none who does good. Psalm 14:1 (ESV) Atheism became an organized and publicly recognized worldview… Read More ›

ATHESIM-The God-Haunted Conscience

Our consciences reveal both a transcendent goodness and our own violation of this goodness through our pettiness, theft, cruelty, dishonesty, lust and a hundred other minor and major infractions.
