Here are my rambling thoughts as I think back on my journey to being atheist, naturalist, whatever label fits for argument's sake. I've been agnostic (at least) since I was about 10-12 years old,…Continue

David Fruits replied to Merlin Mercer's discussion 'Arguments for evolution'
"His mind is made up. All you will do is harm friendship. You can nudge him to science all you want, but admitting his entire belief system is a sham, is not an easy sell. Tread lightly."

David Fruits replied to Alexander Vranas's discussion 'Is Google censoring their autocomplete to avoid offending the religious?'
"That is how I've understood it. Just means that there are quite a few religious folk out there who follow a narrow line of thinking. And, why if you type "do midg" you get the following do midgets have night vision do midgets have…"
