The Disenchanted Naturalist

The Disenchanted Naturalist's Guide to Reality


  1. The comments are interesting. What kind of an article is it that has the purpose to muse about the lack of purpose in the universe followed by comments with the purpose of somewhat debunking this proposition where if naturalism is true then all this is merely a result of physical determinism anyway? There's no point in all these naturalists talking about it at all except to reassure themselves that they are yet justified in denying God. Why would they need such assurance? If any are predisposed to believe in God, according to naturalist presuppositions, even if they themselves are predisposed to believe, then why wouldn't they simply accept this as a matter of natural selection and let it go? They are blind to their true motives.

  2. "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."

    (2 Cor. 10:5)

    Cite that verse on the Disenchanted Naturalist thread, and then wait for the inevitable derision and mockery.

    I feel sorry for the reflective atheists, agnostics, materialists, and adherents to scientism because it really does boil down to nihilism and despair. And then they receive hell for eternity.

    Not wise, but foolish.
