Can you sell us all some mail order Simon?
Will we all become born again Christians as a result?

Narrow and harsh atheistic world view? I suspect some theists get their feelings hurt because they are being referred to as delusional, gullible, intellectually lazy, intolerant, judgemental, unloving and moralistic in spite of their holy texts commanding them to be loving and non-judgemental of all people which includes atheists. I suppose the hypocrisy of it gets up some atheists noses. I suppose to atheists, theists appear to be heavily sedated with Thorazine and go through life with that dopey look in their eyes.

Harsh perhaps as reality is prone to be, but narrow? Hardly.

I think its much more of a narrow view to steadfastly refuse to take in realities about the world in favour of something that has far less evidence so perhaps you have this mixed up.

Still I guess your statement neatly sums up most of belief; the word we are looking for is assumption, good luck with that you will need it.

Hugging might help? I don't know Simon im not sure this helps to dispel peoples illusions, I hug my kids all the time but even so they can and do have some odd ideas about the world, that's why I suppose they go to school.

Simon: you have posted a number of posts asking about the effect of Oxytocin in everyone from Fascists to Creationists. Is it the ideology you wish to deride or do you have a curiosity about bio-chemicals? If the latter, log onto the science forum.

Which branch of philosophy do you follow Simon, or have you made up your own?

Hi K,

I love this kind of thinking; it finds an effect and then justifies the cause with reason that is tainted and prejudiced by belief of the individual making the claim.

Yes you do, you are clearly trying to imply a causal relationship with atheists and a perceived lack of oxytocin.

It's very clear.

Sorry.

Maybe next time it would be better to phrase your question differently if you wish others to believe you.

Really? I guess you cant see the difference, it's in what you don't say and what is implied in "may"

Yes you do, but you are making certain assumptions that lead to bad conclusions by colouring them with your viewpoint.

I can tell you for a fact if I was full of this particular substance as long as it didn't stop me thinking I would still hold atheist views.

The word for today is: Objective.
