1) There are no godsWell, actually, being an atheist (in one common definition) only means number 1. An atheist believes there not to be a god. You can qualify this as much as you want (I do not believe in the existence of the god of the Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912, for example). The other things we believe are not contingent upon the unbelief of this or that god.
2) Theists are IDiots
3) Catholic priests molest children.
But still, I don't mind at all sharing what I believe. And I emphasize that these are beliefs, though not on faith. They are both informed by and amenable to evidence.
Oh, and there are rules:
The rules:1) Why is there anything?
1) Answers can't be limited to the shortcomings of theism (e.g. 'So who caused God?'). I'm looking for an exposition of New Atheist belief, not a criticism of theist belief. Mutual criticism will come once all beliefs are on the table. If New Atheist belief can only be expressed by negation of the beliefs of others, just say so.
2) Myers' "Courtier's Reply" gambit is fine. If you think that a question is nonsense, say so.
3) No changing the subject. New questions are welcome, once the old questions are addressed.
4) The Law of Snark Conservation applies; thoughtful courteous answers get thoughtful courteous replies.
Because 'nothing' is unstable. There are many more ways for there to be something than nothing, so it's the more likely outcome.
2) What caused the Universe?
Nothing did. It was not caused at all. Perhaps a spontaneous reaction.
3) Why is there regularity (Law) in nature?
Good one. I can't come up with an answer that doesn't lead to a new question ad infinitum. Let me rephrase that question: When two particles interact (say, two electrons) in one way in our galaxy, then why do they interact the same way in the Andromeda galaxy? I don't know.
4) Of the Four Causes in nature proposed by Aristotle (material, formal, efficient, and final), which of them are real? Do final causes exist?
I can understand 'material causes', but I have no clue what the other means. Must I now believe in God of Egnor?
5) Why do we have subjective experience, and not merely objective existence?
We experience things with our brain, and we have our own, rather than sharing with the rest. We call that subjective.
6) Why is the human mind intentional, in the technical philosophical sense of aboutness, which is the referral to something besides itself? How can mental states be about something?
Aboutness?! My spellchecker does not compute. The brain is made such that it can think about what we experience. What's the question again?
7) Does Moral Law exist in itself, or is it an artifact of nature (natural selection, etc.)
There is no Moral Law. That we are moral is an artifact of nature.
8) Why is there evil?
There are actions that are deemed evil, because they cause harm. When people harm others (including animals), we call that evil. People harm others for a number of reasons. Because it benefits themselves, because they don't know any better, because they see no other way out of a situation, for examples.
Hey, that was fun!
