Karl Mugele replied to JP Prater's discussion 'When YOU Became Atheist...'
"Not sure what you meant by "full-on Atheist".  Do you mean you went through a period of doubt and are now certain of the lack of existence of any god? If atheism is simply a natural lack of belief in any deity, then surely it is not…"

"Good point Tom - "devout" religion exactly was a cloak showing how good an ex-girlfriend's son was to the world...even though he was as bad if not worse than anyone else."

"Why act like a sheep Richard.  You seem to be saying that a fictional book of tribal myths, no more real that the myths in the Illiad or Beowulf; this book having been translated from multiple languages not contemporaneously by…"

Karl Mugele replied to Unseen's discussion 'Affirmative Action: Does It Do More Harm Than Good?'
"someone from ZA told me some jobs were held by hereditary Africans but that an additional consultant had to be employed to help them do their job. True/False? ... I ask because they were fairly racist in respect of ideas they were prepared to take…"

"Typing on a Galaxy does nit work on TA...grrrr...just lost a long post on the chicken and egg. Suffice it to say that this is a riddle that proves a lack of precision in natural language, not soeciation, which has been proven, e.g. domestic sheep…"

"@Richard Bohn All gods can be disproven satisfactorily fir a law court. All gods are inherently impossible. Logic dictates that a negative cannot be proved...how would you prove absence? How could you prove missing DNA. In law we have the concept…"

"Very funny Richard!  I really don't believe that anyone could possibly be so blind and unintelligent so I can only assume you are taking the mickey. It's not helpful."

Karl Mugele commented on Carol Foley's blog post 'Am I Intolerant?'
"Firstly - no assumption is required to be atheist.  This is the entire point.  You need assumption to believe, not to disbelieve.  Disbelief is (or should be) the default position. Do children come out of the womb with a pre-installed…"
