JustNorrik commented on Anna Silva's blog post 'So who or what created the universe?'
"We know humans created unicorns, fairies, and all kinds of other fictitious characters for fiction based literature throughout the ages. Yet we know those beings or entities do not exist outside of literature and with great confidence. If…"

""So I think theists have one of two options, stop forcing their beliefs on others or accept that I have the right to force my beliefs on them. I'd rather them take the former option as I'm uncomfortable with forcing a belief. I'd…"

"So next time you're in an argument with a theist, ask them if they believe that they have the  right or any person has a right to their own beliefs, thoughts and opinions. And when they answer a resounding "yes", ask them why…"

The Deception of Belief

Recently I was in a debate on religion with ex-family members. And as always the theists were unable to argue away their inconsistencies or contradictions that are in the bible that shows it was written by men. The ending result like most debates on religion I've gotten into ended with this line "I'll believe what I want and you can believe what you want..." This "right to belief" continued to bug me, but why?I got to thinking, why does that not only bother me, but sounds odd. Now I realize…See More

"@Just Norrick You're right, the Democrats and liberals have to own up to some of the blame. The Bush administration's unforgiveable guilt has to do with underregulation of the banks and ignoring the warnings of Brooksley Born, head of the…"

Romney's running mate energizes both sides... I bet it did.

Posted on August 11, 2012 at 7:36pm 16 Comments

This morning, Romney has introduced a unique stimulus package, where as selecting his running mate will create a wider sector for comedians, and thus generate more money for them, which will generate more tax revenue... 

It's called "Trickle Out Laughter Economics", where the steady pace of jokes will boost the economy...



As Romney and Obama, are pretty much identical in polices I didn't give a flying turd about who would win, short of not…

Freedom of Speech

Posted on August 8, 2012 at 4:29pm 0 Comments

I've seen so many groups get all upset over different issues ranging from the Occupy Wall Street movement to anti-war protesters to Creationist propaganda.  I also see from time to time the hate spewed by the Westboro Baptist Church and I cringe each time. I've seen people accuse and believe political propaganda and spout off repeated twists of the truth to serve their own agenda knowing its a lie. I've seen people con others into scams, political ideology and all around social nonsense. But…

Posted on August 8, 2012 at 1:30pm 2 Comments

I’ve seen and heard the new breed of skeptics, where any idea or hypothesis is presented with little to no evidence, backed with a statement about how the government is hiding something or the “evidence” is top-secret. Or somebody posts a well made video on Youtube that explains some claim, with the caption “I was skeptical, but here’s proof!!” For a while now my first response was seriously!?! All you need is a video or a claim?

I’ve seen many people use the “skeptic” label to…
