Brian Spears replied to Professor Tanhauser's discussion 'Reluctantly supporting Dr. Laura.'
"I have to defer to people much more expert on this subject than I am for my response who said--on the day it happened--when Dr. Laura's use of the n-word is the least offensive thing she said, that's impressive. There are plenty of times…"

Keith Johnston replied to Brian Spears's discussion 'Unsurprising. Still Depressing'
"Don't forget that the US only has a 50% literacy rate. If half the population can not even read and write they probably do not even know what geography is! Basically you have a 50/50 chance of picking a dumb ass for the show! The depressing…"

Keith Johnston replied to Brian Spears's discussion 'Unsurprising. Still Depressing'
"Quite frankly I am amazed that you are surprised by all this. I thought that any person with an education could see that the USA is a country who's rulers are dedicated to the continued enslavement of the working classes (and by that I mean…"

Brian Spears replied to Reggie's discussion 'Religion Not a Delusion?'
"I hadn't picked up on the "yet," but the path you're describing is an interesting one. She reminded me a good deal of a slightly less-strident Ann Coulter, which would explain Maher's apparent fascination with her. She also…"

Brian Spears replied to Reggie's discussion 'Religion Not a Delusion?'
"It all depends on which definition of delusional you're using. If you're using the most basic definition--belief in something that is demonstrably false--then the charge is a legitimate one. But frankly, that's not how most people use…"

"When I was in 5th Grade I didn't know that Budapest was the capital of Hungary. I do now and I always knew, definitely even in 5th grade, that Hungary and France WERE countries. But capitals were not something I EVER had to memorize nor learn.…"

"I know my 10th Grade Biology teacher was Catholic... but he also knew evolution was the only truth and had NO PATIENCE for creationists and he tried to argue that he was still Catholic yet accepted evolution so get over your creationism, he said he…"

Brian Spears replied to Fancy Nancy's discussion 'Has Richard Dawkins latest Analogy Misfired?'
"And how unwilling they are to look at and accept evidence. Is it over-the-top? Maybe a little bit. But it's apt, too."

Jean Marie replied to Brian Spears's discussion 'Unsurprising. Still Depressing'
"Mario, why do you feel Obama is a muslim? Where do you get that idea? I'm wondering if you watch ClusterFox 'news', which both complained about the christian preacher of the christian church Obama attended, (Rev…"

Mario Rodgers replied to Brian Spears's discussion 'Unsurprising. Still Depressing'
"No. Obama is not an atheist. No person in their right mind would vote for an atheist president except for atheists themselves. Obama has me confused on whether he's a Christian or a Muslim."

"The leader of one of the most powerful countries is an atheist? Go Obama! He's a welcome change from the previous establishment of BUSHIT! Bush was the definition of ignorance! Him, his buddies, and his Weapons of Mass Distraction! Very true…"

Jean Marie replied to Brian Spears's discussion 'Unsurprising. Still Depressing'
"One can strongly believe in evolution and still be a deist. some theists also believe in evolution, not realizing their religion's book can reeeally be adjusted to accomodate evolution. Or, like most theists from all around the globe, they…"

"Wow. Just wow. There are no words for the story. I mean, even if they somehow did not know that New Mexico is a state, how could they not have looked it up real quick? Granted, in 1996 internet access was nowhere near as univeral as it is now, but…"

David Brown replied to Brian Spears's discussion 'Unsurprising. Still Depressing'
"Sadly, this problem is mostly an American dilemma. I am amazed by it myself. Are we living in 2010 ?? I think Obama would like to do something about this, but I feel he is hesitant in coming out of the closet as an atheist."
