The Atheist Literature Club

Since it has been a desire of mine to write more atheist friendly material, I decided to create a blog where I would contribute such material. But then I decided that I wanted a place where I could see other material from other atheists. So, I named my blog the Atheist Literature Club. It's basically a place where atheists can submit their unholy creativity for everyone to see. *Sincere apologies for anybody for copying off their idea, a quick search through google showed nothing like this, but I may have missed something. But anywho, check it out if you'd like. It's my first blog, so keep that in mind.

Just a quick question:

Just a quick question:

Quote:
1: Please do not be hateful or rude in your works.

How do you define "hateful" and "rude"? I'm afraid that's going to need a lot clearer delineation. Just about anything can be considered rude, depending on the person reading it. I'm reminded of:

Perhaps I should just say

Perhaps I should just say "don't be write anything that encourages intolerance" or something to that effect?

Personally, here's where I

Personally, here's where I would draw the line: Nothing illegal, especially no advocacy of violence or threats of violence, or basically advocacy of harming any individual people or group of people in any way. Why I state it in terms of 'harm': I don't consider merely causing someone offence as harming them, as long as it's not harassment or some such. Anyone can get offended about anything, quite literally. But there are usually pretty clear guidelines as to what constitutes 'harm' vs. 'not harm' in law and ethics.

And after that, you can just rely on your own aesthetic judgment as to whether the stories are interesting enough as stories (or poetry or whatever) to qualify as something worth posting. So, basically, a story that's nothing but insults and crap like that you can just reject because it's not a good story.

Honestly, I guess I'm making too big a deal out of it, but I guess if I were to submit something, I'd rather have it rejected because it wasn't a good story, rather than because of some vague accusation that it was 'too offensive' to post.

Just one more bit of

Just one more bit of advertising here and I'll shut up about it, but if anybody has any interest, I'll be putting up essays of my thoughts with accordance to religion on the blog. I still encourage people, if they so chose, to contribute.

Alright, I'll shut up now.

Hi Weston - that dialogue reads just like some conversations I've had with my family - to wit - "Have you ever witnessed an evolutionary event??? No? Well then!"

I think you should develop something in which a teenager gets buttonholed by their parents...

HEYYYY!!!!i

I love the  idea. I will read your story.

I am a short story writer and alot of my material is Atheist friendly (hint: no ultimate purposes, humanity solving it's own problems by looking within and overcoming itself, ) that sort of thing. Alot of my stuff is post-apocalyptic. Good work Weston. Maybe I'll send you some material.

I like your idea of dialogue as a teaching mechanism - just the way you've written your piece would translate very well to another scenario - say a kitchen table discussion between a family as parents trying to convert some kid who has to fend off their arguments. The way Religitics reads certainly sounds similar to conversations I've had with family members over the years but your dialogue format makes your points far more digestible than a slab of text, I think. For younger folk who visit, I think something like that would be very useful.

Well, thank you, Extremist.

 

I do hope that people use what I write as a simple way to question some of the beliefs that religious people use. I'll try to get another episode of Religitics up soon.

Thank you, sir.

 

I hope you enjoy them. I'm debating whether or not I should put some essay I've been working on against religion on there. I might, but, because of my lack of any professional standards and little training in philosophy, I don't know if it is really that good...

Well, if you'd like to hash

Well, if you'd like to hash out some of the ideas you put forth in the essay, you could always try testing them out with us in the Freethinking Anonymous forum. If they pass the gauntlet to your satisfaction, they're probably decent ideas worthy of an essay. If not, you'll probably learn something new along the way. Just a thought.

Hi Weston,I was once part of

Hi Weston,

I was once part of a writing club, and we often used to do complete critiques of each others' writing, trying to point out things that could help the other person get a short story published.

I'm starting my proper reading of Religitics right now, and when I spotted a typo/grammar issue, my instinct was to start doing one of my critiques. I don't only focus on mini details like grammar. I also do more high-level critique as well. But I thought I should ask if that's something you would like before I actually go ahead with it.

I could do: a) proof-reading, word flow, paragraph structure, etc., b) higher-level stuff like characters, theme, story, plot, dialogue, etc., or c) all of the above.

It would actually not take me much effort to do, and I would probably enjoy it, so just ask yourself if you're interested in receiving that kind of feedback, and let me know, Yea or Nay. I won't take it personal either way. Also, if you do want that kind of feedback, let me know how you would want to receive it. I could post them as comments on your threads, or could send you a PM (if you have PMing available), or we could figure out an email thing. Totally up to you.

I wouldn't have a problem

I wouldn't have a problem with any of that. I just ask that you direct all comments to the blog, rather than here. Also, since you were a part of a club, perhaps you could join the Atheist Literature Club? Help me get it going? I'd really appreciate it.

Sure I'll join. What do I

Sure I'll join. What do I have to do?

I just want to warn you ahead of time that I'm unreliable as fuck. Sometimes I'm on, sometimes I'm off. Fortunately, I recently found out what the underlying problem was, which happened to be undiagnosed ADHD. I'm getting treated for it now, which is why I've been posting around here more frequently as of the past few months, but I'm not completely over the unreliability thing.

So, as long as there's no requirement to write something every week or something like that, I should be okay. I'm only telling you this because I'm quite interested to join, but I feel super guilty when people expect me to follow through on something and I end up disappointing them. If you need members to make regular commitments, I'm almost certainly not your guy.

Hmm, not sure. Might want to ask Weston. Another problem I had was the way the story configured, the paragraphs were a little off base and that was not the way I typed it.

You shouldn't need to subscribe. It should be there. I'm not sure why the paragraphs were off like that. When I went in to edit it they were fine...

Hi OPIE

It's impossible for a consistent atheist to know how to read. lol. wow. Since knowledge is not objective, and reading is objective via universals, then a consistent atheist must be illiterate. However, if he isn't, that he's a acting more like a christian.

People, be consistent in your weirdo religion of atheism. I mean, eat a pickle or something and get consistent. A true atheist cannot read according to the rules of atheism. Of course consistent atheists are hard to come buy. Mao, the murderer of millions of people, he was very consistent.

Respectfully,

Jean Chauvin (Jude 3).

A Rational Christian of Intelligence (rare)with a valid and sound justification for my epistemology and a logical refutation for those with logical fallacies and false worldviews upon their normative of thinking in retrospect to objective normative(s). This is only understood via the imago dei in which we all are.

People, be consistent in your weirdo religion of atheism. I mean, eat a pickle or something and get consistent. A true atheist cannot read according to the rules of atheism. Of course consistent atheists are hard to come buy. Mao, the murderer of millions of people, he was very consistent.

Stop trolling my thread.

Our job on this Earth, is to take care of each other. Something that we have ultimately failed at doing, hence why we are so miserable.

Hi

Hi,

I wrote that because you read my post. Just by reading my post means you're inconsistent atheists. lol. I'm not a troll opie, you've just fallen and can't get up. Since you can read, then you are more on my side of Christianity.

Helping Atheists becoming consistent in there worldview like Mao and thus being murderers and freakos.

Respectfully,

Jean Chauvin (Jude 3).

A Rational Christian of Intelligence (rare)with a valid and sound justification for my epistemology and a logical refutation for those with logical fallacies and false worldviews upon their normative of thinking in retrospect to objective normative(s). This is only understood via the imago dei in which we all are.

Respectfully,

So let me get this right. According to your logic:

1. Mao is a consistent atheist.

2. Consistent atheists cannot read or write.

3. Therefore Mao could not read or write.

 

A question that immediately springs to mind, then, is who the f*ck wrote the Little Red Book?

 

It appears to me that a "Rational Christian of Intelligence" is indeed very rare, and that every time you type something you further demonstrate just how rare it is.

Your conclusion being that Mao couldn't read?  What's more relative and empirical than subjectively interpreting symbols, literally?  Reading epitomizes empirical epistemology.  Your conclusion shows how relying on logic alone, without any empirical verification can lead to absurd conclusions.

 

Edit: I have just read HumanVuvuzela's post. I should really scroll to the end before posting.

I have read it, good story.  The text formatting was awkward though, I think you should run in through a plain text editor before pasting it on the website.  Copy/Paste the block of text in Windows Notepad, then copy it again to paste on the website, it gets rid of the Word tags.  The way the lines break take away from the pace of the story.  The story is quite thought provoking, however, and well worth the formatting pain. Smiling

Yeah. I don't know what the hell happened to he format, that certainly was not the way that I intended for it to come out. I tried copying and pasting from my Word and it would not let me do it. Oh well. Maybe I'll have better luck next time with the format.

Glad that to hear that you liked the story though.
