Greg Leavitt replied to A Former Member's discussion 'Ignorance Today' in the group Skeptics of Think Atheist

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"It doesn't have to be a predominantly male activity.  That's the historical bias, but that's mostly caused by a theistic patriarchal system.  I actually doubt you're supporting that.  Additionally, I don't…"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"I think that by any rational examination of the monogamy community you'll find a void of problems.  Rampant cheating, divorce is running about 50% (Although, I think that's probably a solution to problems rather than a problem in…"

"Tow bones to pick; What's considered a violent crime?  Sure homicide, but what about rape?  I'm thinking that rape isn't reported by the list above very often.  By that I mean that it's not a crime that's…"

Greg Leavitt replied to Wesley's discussion 'The problem with the God Proposals'
"Frankly, most theists "assume" believe like the acceptance of software EULA.  They just scroll down to the bottom and click "I accept".   I'll offer an argument, but I'll bend it to a specific.  You ask…"

"I think that the IRS and government in general would love your ideas.  Then they could tax more, limit freedoms and increase their control of just about everything.   Most of these thing aren't "entitlements" as you seem to…"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"Asset distribution, custody, power of attorney, healthcare decisions, end of life decisions, financial pooling of resources. Dissolution protections (think divorce vs. a roommate moving out),  Immigration and residency rights conferred with…"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"Seriously?  What advantages are there.  I'll just list a few.  I shouldn't really assume this is for the whole world, as there are plenty of other models out there, but for the U.S. Healthcare is shared for incorporated…"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"I wasn't even thinking of tax breaks of being married.  My wife and I don't have children, so there goes so many deductions that are the oft touted tax breaks.   Simply having someone to share financial burdens with is a…"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"What advantage do you think that would have?  Couples who choose to raise children should both be obliged to the financial responsibilities of raising them.  Additionally, getting married to someone you love is a great thing to do. …"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"Monogamy is a trait that arose out of a evolutionary process?  I really hope you're borrowing some terms from biology to reference something you mean in sociology.  Otherwise I think you're in troubled territory.  Numerous…"

Greg Leavitt replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"The issue isn't "what's wrong with polygamy?", as you've outlined it.  The issue is how an open set of rules can and will be interpreted by the theists and misogynists.   The open set of rules, such as " Why…"
