Welcome to the 17th Carnival of the Godless. There were some server difficulties with the main COTG server, so it’s been moved to carnivalofthegodless.blogspot.com and so I imagine we lost a few posts as a result. So here we go:
Hank Fox talks about being an atheist.
Does Religion Diminish Our Humanity? Alun Salt asks if someone can claim to be ethical if the only thing that encourages them to do good is fear of frying in Hell.
At UTI Annex Brent Rasmussen, the man who put together the Carnival of the Godless shows the Archbishop of Portland, Oregon to be sliding on the slippery slope towards genocide.
Pixnap’s “Morality, Divinity, and Humanity” examines the moral implications of evolution vs. the literalist biblical account of creation as related in Genesis and Chris Hallquist at Uncredible HallQ offers up a rant.
PZ Myers has, in his own words: “a complaint about the awful NYT op-ed by a Catholic cardinal on evolution. (the obscure title is mocking Cristoph Cardinal Schönborn, whose name means “beautiful fount”…häßlicher Abfluß translates as “ugly drain”)”
Saint Nate offers us a post titled Inherently Wind and says about it “As the 80th Anniversary of the Scopes-Monkey trial draws near, I show how things really aren’t too different today and probably won’t be in another 80 years.”
On July 24th the next Carnival of the Godless will be hosted by Saint Nate, and you can email submissions to him or Brent Rasmussen at the COTG site. Thanks to all for their submitted links and thoughtful posts, and thanks to Brent Rasmussen for letting me host this latest COTG.
Enjoy your week, all.
