  1. MILLICAN ARGUMENT FROM HIS MORAL STANDARDS

    1.God can not set any moral standard in Ten Commandments
    2.Homosexuality is not a sin

    3.Therefore religion harm society

    4.Therefore God does not exist

  2. MILLICAN ARGUMENT FROM CREATION VS EVOLUTION

    1.If evolution is true, then creationism is false, and therefore God doesn’t exist.

    2.Creation can’t be true, since I lack the mental capacity to understand it and am not at all interested in studying it; moreover, to accept its truth would cause me to be uncomfortable

    ERGO: God doesn’t exist.

  3. This debate is about as informed as a today's brainwashed generations of school & university bred children.

  4. If you don't have religions then you end up with atheist society. Did Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba, etc. create paradise on Earth? No religion is not paradise on Earth it's HELL on Earth.

  5. Who is that rude, nasty, angry woman sitting in the front who interrupted him. She was so angry and rude. Ask the question politely you stupid woman

  6. Psychological Eclipse, a Shield with intent, one sided doctrine, deception, Templars KKK irrational mentality, commercialized wars, personally I'm so sick of this Idiotice subject, I wish we get rid this mental constipation.

  7. Evolution can't think and talk, its just not abstract and objective, just invented.
    At the judgement people will be judged by the books, and if you are not written in the book of life you will not make it in , the Bible says if your name is not written in the book of life you will not enter in, you repent and get save in this life Revelation 20:11-15

  8. Just before the first minute finishes I have a question. Do people have the same cognitive abilities to follow a religion? If they don't have than religion is neither good nor bad, it ultimately depends on those who justify their actions using the religion.

  9. Personally I think for the case of Christianity isn't inherently evil, just like a gun isn't evil. You put it in the hands of evil people however and it shoots. It could be used for protection or for destruction

  10. what a bad speech…

    I lost it at "think about the Crusades".. oh boy.. is that an argument in 2018 ? please…

    Let me argue that atheism harms society because of the gulag.. is that an argument ?

    no!

    Now if this guy was actually honest he would have looked into the Encyclopedia of war to read that religion is the cause of only 7% of wars throughout history, and 3% after removing Islam..
    And if we compare by death toll then religion is nothing on the scale of the 20th century massacres committed in the name of atheistic ideologies like National socialism and communism (two things that liberals today are condoning and want to go back to.. )

    All his speech is build on scenarios instead of actual data.

    exemple : Christians do not care about the environment or conflict because they welcome because it might be Jesus coming back

    In practice that it not representative of Christianity at all. Not at all.

    All his points are objections to religious doctrines but never actual data.

  11. Blasphemy laws don't allow liberal critical argument on the subject of islam as it offends muslim sensiblity. So the concept of blasphemy presupposes rabid dogma in favor of a retarded priesthood that wishes to control it's citizens and manipulate them into living In the bronze age past. This is not true of other religions in general. When a religon becomes a mafia, like islam Is, one risks death by leaving the fold. End of story. This is what the west is up against. The dark ages still eclipsing the middle east.

  12. The Crusades were defensive wars against Islamic invaders…Before The First Crusade had started Muslims had already sacked:Jerusalem,Alexandria,Rome and Antioch…4 of the Epicentres of the Christian world at the time and had the crusades not happened..The Muslims would sack Constantinople centuries before they did it in our timeline

  13. aa How can a scientist be an atheist? and additionally how can they build
    their arguments on that? (atheism) It seems to me they are building
    their arguments and compounding their potential error on unsubstantiated
    conclusions (atheism), i.e. they haven't proven there is NO God, yet
    atheism assumes as much….get it?

  14. Christianity and Science have both evolved. Belief in what/who God is , like our development to the discovery of quarks, has had corruption, violence and intractable arrogance in it's Bio. Atom bombs of mis-use, so to speak. But, we evolve. "Christianity" with out Christ was a primordial bloodbath. We evolve.
