David Brown commented on Carol Foley's blog post 'Insert Witty Title Here- My Deconversion Story'
"Couldn't agree with you more Cara and if I may I would like to add that it's  not just the Christian version. All religions are fear based, cults of death. Like all controlling ideologies, they use fear of retribution to control the…"

David Brown commented on Sassan K.'s blog post 'The 53%: We are NOT Occupy Wall Street'
"Apparently irrational and ridiculous opinions and belief systems aren't the exclusive domain of religious believers. If  It isn't bad enough that the Uber-wealthy are gorging themselves at the trough, they also have apologists like…"

David Brown replied to Unseen's discussion 'Pitbulls - Threat or Menace? Our blind spot when it comes to this breed'
"Dangerous dogs? This site is supposedly Think Atheist, not some wanky social media site for intellectually shallow attention seekers to post trivial crap on. If you want to ask this sort of crap try facebook or youtube."

David Brown replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'Cherry-picking religion: Do some religious people just choose the bits they like?'
"Sarcasm Trevor, or inability to put forward a rational and logical reply? "

David Brown replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'Cherry-picking religion: Do some religious people just choose the bits they like?'
"Natasha- surely the only ones who don't "cherry pick" are those who are willing to fly aircraft into buildings or walk into cafes and obliterate unsuspecting and innocent human beings? Fundamentalist theists are in essence, the…"

David Brown replied to Morgana's discussion 'Hi Everyone!'
"Man, that is the longest short introduction I've ever seen! I'm scared to see you in full flight.......!!!!!! Good on you for having the courage of your convictions. I hope my kids show the same strength.There is nothing worse than an…"

David Brown replied to Suzanne Olson-Hyde's discussion 'Where We Live'
"Sorry to come across as pedantic Suzanne, but a "moslim" is not a "race"- it is a religious choice. I detest Islam but it doesn't make me a racist any more than detesting the Christian religion makes me a racist. Lets keep…"

David Brown replied to Darrell Mont's discussion 'What is your Atheist Prayer'
"Sorry Darrell, but this is a stupid question given the context of this site. Whilst I understand the sarcastic bent of your question, I think you'll find most, if not all of us here, aren't that interested in giving any time to writing to…"

David Brown replied to Ama Maduako's discussion 'Would you 'convert' someone to Atheism if it meant destroying their moral framework?'
"1.Read my statement again and you will see I called you a pseudo-christian, no-one else. 2.Just what "realities of the 21st century" am I ignoring? 3. read my statement again (slower this time time) and explain how Christians are…"

David Brown replied to Ama Maduako's discussion 'Would you 'convert' someone to Atheism if it meant destroying their moral framework?'
"You're not an Atheist, you're a pseudo christian. If you want to be realistic, read some history. You'll find your peace loving Christians have murdered in the the name of their God for the last two thousand years - the Crusades…"

David Brown replied to Moria Jackson's discussion 'New(er) religion'
"As Andre Gide, Nobel prize winning author stated - "The closer you get to religion, the further you get from reality".   (please everybody, stop replying to student of knowledge - you know it only encourages them!!!!) "
Oct 9, 2011
David Brown replied to Ama Maduako's discussion 'Would you 'convert' someone to Atheism if it meant destroying their moral framework?'
"Its a matter of historical record that both religions are intolerant and prepared to use violence to oppress differing opinions. If you want to argue that Christianity is somehow "better" than Islam because they are "less…"

David Brown replied to Ama Maduako's discussion 'Would you 'convert' someone to Atheism if it meant destroying their moral framework?'
"I'm certainly not going to defend either faith. Having just moments ago finished watching a documentary called "Jesus Camp" where evangelical Christians are indoctrinating children to be "soldiers of God" (sound familiar?),…"

Bill O'Reilly vs. Richard Dawkins on 'The Magic of Reality'

"O Reilly exposes his arrogance and ignorance every time he opens his mouth. When faced with a rational response he simply ignores it and moves on to another topic. What an intellectually weak and pompous man."

David Brown replied to Ama Maduako's discussion 'Would you 'convert' someone to Atheism if it meant destroying their moral framework?'
"Try arguing with them about the irrationality of their faith Sassan and see how quickly they get aggressive / violent. I think you'll find their veneer of calm and acceptance very thin.As Sam Harris said in his book, Letters to A Christian…"

David Brown replied to Ama Maduako's discussion 'Would you 'convert' someone to Atheism if it meant destroying their moral framework?'
"Ama, your question asks whether you should "convert" a persons belief system (Monotheism) to another belief system (Atheism), and many of the replies, whilst well meaning fall into the same muddy thinking. Atheism is not a belief system.…"
