"Dan, Dan, Dan, What an unhappy lad you are. I am so sorry life is not good for you - did you have such an unhappy childhood? My utmost felt sympathy goes out to you. I hope you are feeling better one day.  :D"

Dan commented on Rocky Oliver (LotusGeek)'s blog post 'Tough, somewhat embarrassing situation for me; time to share...'
"You, sir, are a hypocrite of the highest order.  You claim to have taught your children to be respectful of others' beliefs and "to ask questions, research, and explore different religions."  But what you really mean is that…"

Dan commented on dragotron's blog post 'How can we strengthen atheism in society?'
"I was so encouraged by your title.  So many atheism blogs are not about atheism at all, but rather are about anti-theism.  So your title jumped off the screen at me.  But then I read it...  So disappointing. More of the same old…"

Dan commented on Nick Lavalley's blog post 'Stephen Hawking Discusses the Origin of the Universe'
"Nope. Hawking still doesn't get it. The article says...   "...the universe likely "popped into existence without violating the known laws of Nature," he says. Nothing created the universe, so in his view there was no need…"

Dan commented on Nick Lavalley's blog post 'Stephen Hawking Discusses the Origin of the Universe'
"The link didn't go to the article you mentioned--at least for me. Regardless, we can only hope that Hawking has boned up on his philosophy/theology so he doesn't make a fool of himself like he did promoting his new book a few months ago."

Dan commented on Robert Karp's blog post 'Get Your Thinking Hats On! Scientist-Politician-Atheist Offers Own Money For Origin of Life Prize'
"$50,000 won't have any impact at all. That's peanuts. At most institutions, $50k will barely support one graduate student (stipend, tuition, benefits, fees) for a year, and that doesn't include any funds for supplies. Now $2 million…"

Dan commented on Ezra T. Klatt's blog post 'Socrates v. Jesus: Why Jesus' Historical Existence is more important than Socrates'
"@Ezra I've not heard that early Christians may have thought Jesus lived earlier. If you can find a reference for that I'd love to see it."
May 27, 2011
Dan commented on Ezra T. Klatt's blog post 'Socrates v. Jesus: Why Jesus' Historical Existence is more important than Socrates'
""This despite the fact that [Jesus] in no way lives up to the Jewish concept of the Messiah"   This is an important point. There's little doubt that Christianity started among Jews in the first century. So what caused these…"

Dan commented on Sassan K.'s blog post 'Stephen Hawking says Philosophy is Dead!'
"@Sassan K. "Those are questions to be discussed and debated; but philosophy as a subject and as a discipline  for all practical matters, is finished."   The ignorance of that self-contradictory statement is trumped only by…"

Dan commented on Cathy Cooper's blog post 'Atheists are uneducated according to Dr. William Lane Craig'
"@Cathy Cooper.   OK, I understand your position much better now because your excellent explanation and after having a couple days distance from the discussion (always a good thing, btw). There is still one thing that bothers me,…"

Dan commented on Cathy Cooper's blog post 'Atheists are uneducated according to Dr. William Lane Craig'
"@Cathy Cooper Let me try this again if I may.   First off, an ad hominem is when a person attacks another's character, etc. in an attempt to discredit the other's position. That's not what I did. Regardless, I resorted to name…"

Dan commented on Cathy Cooper's blog post 'Atheists are uneducated according to Dr. William Lane Craig'
"@Cathy Cooper   OK, I tried to be diplomatic about it. Again, you said "...when people are allowed to think and be reflective, and they have access to all the information, i.e. education, then you will have a rise in atheists and agnostics…"
Apr 12, 2011
Dan commented on Cathy Cooper's blog post 'Atheists are uneducated according to Dr. William Lane Craig'
"@Cathy Cooper   Given what I quoted above and the following sentence--"When people are able to apply deductive and inductive logic and the H-D method, they are more apt to come to better conclusions, and choose the best…"
Apr 12, 2011
Dan commented on Cathy Cooper's blog post 'Atheists are uneducated according to Dr. William Lane Craig'
"@Cathy Cooper   I find it ironic that you are offended by Craig and then make comments like this:   "Whether it be the Enlightenment of earlier times, or the modern Enlightenment, when people are allowed to think and be reflective,…"

Dan commented on Cathy Cooper's blog post 'Atheists are uneducated according to Dr. William Lane Craig'
""Mr. McGrath made the comment that the increased atheism in the West is due to the "Enlightenment" i.e. EDUCATION and knowledge."   Did McGrath explicitly equate the Enlightenment with education and knowledge? I ask because…"
