  1. The article seems to suggest that philosophical views regarding existentialism and creationism have something to do with morality (the article mentioned “evil”), which I challenge on the basis of morality and theism/atheism being entirely mutually nonexclusive; they have nothing to do with one another.

    It also seems to imply that homosexuality is immoral, painting it as a sort of growing issue, but only provides a religious justification for that claim (from what I understand), which I will also challenge on the basis that sexual preference (when only involving consenting adults) has nothing to do with morality or ethical fitness.
    I’d also like to point out that there are not necessarily more homosexuals now than in the past, there are simply more homosexuals who are willing to admit to it because the shame and discrimination against them is fading out of society.

    1. Amanda, thank you for your engagement with my reposting of another persons blog. I’m not entirely sure what you are trying to get at in your first paragraph when you state that philosophical views of existentialism and creationism are not supposed to have anything to do with morality. You challenge it as being mutually non-exclusive, I’m wondering if you meant mutually exclusive. For example the existence of war and peace at the same time would be mutually exclusive given the definition that their relation between one another makes the other impossible to exist. So war can’t exist during peace time and vice versa.

      Also, when you “challenge on the basis of morality” to what worldview’s morality are you referring too? I will assume atheism given the rest of your post, but I could be wrong and clarification is welcome.

      I think at this point I will only reply to your first paragraph because I think if I can first understand your fundamental views about reality, then I can BETTER address other statements below, but once again—I’m so grateful to engage with you on these issues and look forward to your reply.
