Artor replied to Unseen's discussion 'We'll probably never colonize Mars or deep space - and here's why'
"I think there's little economic reason for a permanent base on Mars. Why take a long expensive trip through space just to land on another planet, one that isn't even habitable? However, there are plenty economic reasons for permanent space…"

Artor replied to Michael's discussion 'Is Atheism Predicated Partially on the Belief in Evolution?'
"Dude, really? You've been active on TA for how long? And you still don't know the answer to that? I'll give you a hint; Socrates was an atheist, and he didn't know shit about evolution. Also, you're confusing abiogenesis…"

Artor replied to Bobby's discussion 'Self-authenticating Scripture Advice'
"Good point about the aliens. There are plenty of people today, with access to the internet, modern science & education who can't tell true stories from false, and can be misled by the wildest claims by con-men, frauds & hucksters, or…"

Artor replied to John Kelly's discussion 'There has to be an absolute morality'
"Nope. I'm still not buying it. You make alot of statements about what things are, but I don't share your definitions or conclusions. "Disorder is the conceptual name given to the realization that prior bonds have been severed."…"

Artor replied to John Kelly's discussion 'There has to be an absolute morality'
"All right then. I can categorically reject your allegations then. While there may be a Platonic Ideal of perfect morality, the fact is that there are 7 billion humans on this planet in a myriad of different cultures. As those cultures change…"

Artor replied to John Kelly's discussion 'There has to be an absolute morality'
"Your statement that the Universe is absolute means nothing without more explanation. Saying that there must be absolute morality because the Universe is absolute is a non-sequitur, even if we take the universe as absolute as a given. In one…"

Artor replied to Unseen's discussion 'What would be a suitable punishment for the boys who bullied their bus monitor?'
"I'm a strong believer in direct consequences. First off, these kids get to walk to school from here on. Until they can show that they can behave as part of a civil society, they don't get to reap the benefits of that society."

Artor replied to Robert Karp's discussion 'What Do You Dislike About Obama?'
"Um, I think JvdR has a pretty strong point. Bin Laden wasn't Obama's baby, but rather a tool of George Bush senior, the CIA director who financed his operations against the Soviets and supplied him with weapons and...all the best training…"

Artor replied to Rich's discussion 'Teaching the difference between evolution and intelligent design to 10 year olds.'
"If you want to avoid the shitstorm, don't focus on evolution vs ID. Teach the kids about the scientific method, the meaning of theory, hypothesis & unsupported assertion. Once you have that drilled in, then you can simply present the (reams…"

"Except in those tribes where it's the respectful way to treat your beloved family members, in which case it's still moral."

Artor commented on Jessica Frame's blog post '...But I'm a Heathen'
"I think you're being misled by the Xtian version of Satanism. I've known a few Satanists before, and I agree that they're usually immature posers, but I think this is the basic insight; If you read the Bible, it's clear that…"

Artor replied to krystal ellis's discussion 'The connection between the Creator and the Extraterrestrials'
"I think a likely outcome is that godbots would declare aliens to be demonic. They already try to demonize "the other," over trivial differences like skin color, ethnic heritage or social status. How much easier would it be for someone who…"

"Actually, that's the reason I stopped watching Scooby Doo as a kid. It was always Old Man Jenkins in a ghost disguise...except when it was actually a ghost. I got frustrated that you couldn't consistently apply logic to the show."

What censorship means

Posted on December 10, 2011 at 10:35am 0 Comments

I made an offhand reply to an ignorant comment I came across on a science blog, and this is what it turned into. Read on, and shake your head in disbelief...

Black holes are God's way of saying "I take it back". If we don't clean up our acts of war and greed, we're on the list.


Please keep your fairy tales out of my science.

Just a thought

Posted on September 11, 2011 at 6:31pm 13 Comments

Just a thought; wouldn't it be nice if we had a Presidential candidate that had a background in science or education? One that promised to end our wars of corporate sponsorship overseas, as well as the drug war here. That actually understood the Constitution and took steps to preserve it, to the point of rolling back things like the Patriot Act. That was dedicated to bringing to justice the people involved in looting our economy, abusing our own citizens in the name of "security," and making…
