Liar, Lunatic, Atheist Argument

Christians sometimes argue that everyone “knows” there is a God. I always find this line of argument comical for so many reasons.

First, it is sort of childish. I could just as easily declare that the Christian knows there isn’t a God. It is an assertion which needs no justification. The argument can’t go anyway. It just dead ends. I think it really is a poor form of argument to assert to know what someone else believes especially when they are claiming that it is not what they believe.

This leads to my variation on the old, Lord, Liar, Lunatic Argument. I call it the Liar, Lunatic, Atheist Argument. When a Christian claims that I really know that God exists, there are only three possibilities (not really, but go with me on this).

The first possibility is that the professed atheist (me) is lying. I don’t think I am lying. I am pretty sure that I am doing my best to be honest when I say that I lack the belief in deities and outright don’t believe in the Abrahamic deity.

The second possibility is that I am a lunatic. Perhaps I am crazy and don’t know when I am telling the truth or lying. This would mean that reality and fantasy are jumbled together in my mind and I am just nuts. This is certainly possible, but I am fairly confident that I am relatively sane.

And that brings us to the final possibility, that I must be an atheist just as I profess to be. I really must not believe in a deity.

Of course there are more possibilities, but we won’t talk about them because that is not how the Lord, Liar, Lunatic Argument works. ;-) So next time a Christian tells you that you secretly believe, try the Liar, Lunatic, Atheist Argument on them and let them argue against their own Lord, Liar, Lunatic Argument for you. It’s fun.

    A cross-cultural examination of sexual beliefs, the book traces sexual practices with gender honesty, the unusual and the transcendent, throughout the worlds’ cultures. A deep look at world religions and their control of sex, the book explores and exposes complex relationships between spirituality, sexuality, and the treatment of women and boys throughout history. The book revamps previous historical interpretations of gender fluidity in worldwide cultures.

    While women were exalted as leaders and priestesses in many cultures, they suffered a drastic loss of power and prestige over time. The supremacy of the Mother Goddess throughout most of human existence, and her relatively recent fall, is detailed.

    Other themes are; the undeniable existence of bisexuality in the majority of human cultures, the influence and abuses of the Church, the history of sexual slavery including World War II, child brides and forced marriages, historical perspectives on homosexuality, the origins of the LGBTQ and Feminist movements..

    Included are works of mythology, erotic artwork, and literary excerpts. These weave together a multicultural and historical tapestry which we can now see reflected in our contemporary world. It offers in very readable form an encyclopedic tour of the sexuality of humankind!
