Resource Repository

We frequently see requests from folks for suggestions on where they can find resources to either aid them in their journeys or assist them in debate skills. The purpose of this OP is to establish a spot for folks to link to those resources, suggest books, vids, etc.

Please feel free to respond with your suggestions.

I'll take this opportunity to link to a previous post I made about how to find sources with Google's search engine. Might be helpful.

For folks who want help

For folks who want help coming out about their atheism, I’d suggest a book by Greta Christina called “Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why”

Rhetological Fallcies

Here is something else I was working on before the great adventure.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/fiqjfthqe5pefxf/RhetologicalFallacies.zip?dl=0

The zipfile contains an ODP file for use with LibreOffice or OpenOffice, and a PDF version of the ODP file.

Enjoy

For Those New to Atheism, and

For Those New to Atheism, and Those Old Like Me

Here is a website I was working on before the adventure came up. Finally got it publishable and tenatively published.

Wild Tangents 3: A Compilation

Basically, this is a compilation of all the eBooks I have published. I have not gotten everything done into HTML files, but I'll keep working on it.

Although it may be for the new atheist, some old ones may find some of the things I have written fascinating, interesting, sad.

I decided to also put this on the web, since the eBooks I wrote are FREE, so those who are new to atheism could have a place to look at, study, perhaps memorize some of the arguments I have used against members of my Religious Absolutist family, blowing their arguments completely out of the water. Most of this information I typed up into LibreOffice Writer documents, print them, then hand them out to those family members who like to preach. These usually shut them up as they read the articles, allowing me to enjoy a little peace and quiet. These arguments are the main reason they will gang up on me at family get-togethers, tag teaming me so I cannot get any words in for my defense. They know if they let me get my thoughts together, I will completely destroy any argument they can think of.

And it still amazes me how a religion that is supposed to be all about love and compassion creates the most hateful and violent persons on the planet. Well, Islam does too.

Basically, for those of you who are new to atheism, I created this web site for you.

Enjoy, or curse.

On a further note, if anyone here wishes to write their own article for helping those new to Atheism, then simply contact me by PM here. Then we can get some email thing going.

*Place holder* to remind me

https://www.ted.com/playlists/482/talks_to_support_a_healthy_deb

One point in one of those videos that particularly jumps out to me that I try to keep in mind:
Do not try more than 3 times to convince someone of your viewpoint, if you cannot change their minds by the 3rd attempt, each subsequent attempt is more likely to harden the other person's viewpoint then to sway them. Pick a different angle of the debate or let someone else try to debate them. Something I find particularly relevant on these boards.

Also know, for the religious apologist that take the time to visit an atheist debate board to debate their side, it is highly likely. no matter what you say or do: these religious apologist will not change their minds based on what they read here. However a debate played out here on the atheist boards may sway a 3rd party reader of the debate. I seen many older threads that have key phrases that makes atheist republican debate board feature on the first page of a google search on that phrase, with some older threads getting 10's of thousands of views long after anyone posted a reply to them. Those readers, that may be "on the fence," is where a solid argument may reach them and help realize the lie/con that is god based religions.

Something in a Teal might be nice. Yellow is also in this year but orange is the new black.

Re: "...orange is the new

Re: "...orange is the new black."

Only if you are a resident of a women's penitentiary. Besides, Sugar, that was SO last year. For Talyyn I'm thinking more of something in a neon-chartreuse skin-tight leather, studded with rubies along all the seams, with day-glo yellow tassels on the cuffs and down the back of the legs. Of course, that would certainly not be complete without a peacock feather boa and blazing red platform shoes with fish bowls in the heels. Top it all off with a stunningly white Stetson cowboy hat with a turquoise hatband. Oh, and the piece de resistance.... A trained spider monkey named "Clarence" perched obediently on his left shoulder...... *Z-snap*....

I would pay to see that.

For those of you who use Tor

For those of you who use Tor here's a massive collection of scientific articles. The collective knowledge of humanity:

Http://scihub22266oqcxt.onion

You can't get there with a regular browser, but if you know your way around the deep web this is a great resource for scientific papers from all fields. It can be a bit tricky to access at different times, but if you can you will have access to an astronomical amount of information.
