Kenneth Low replied to Monica McGee (Monicks)'s discussion 'So, what do atheists believe?'
"I believe in rationality. Specifically, important words need definitions. Otherwise public discussion reduces to expressions of bias and emotionality. I also believe it isn't rational to dismiss written history. I don't doubt the Old…"

Kenneth Low commented on Robert Karp's blog post 'Edit the Pledge of Allegiance to Remove "Under God"'
"Here is practical atheism: In stead of "In God we trust" why isn't the slogan "In our government we trust"? I mean, it doesn't inspire me with confidence when the authority printing money has to drag God into it. More…"

Kenneth Low replied to matt.clerke's discussion 'Interesting Math problem for Christians and Atheists alike'
"Granted, much of Genesis is fanciful invention. However, the Law of Moses established the basis for the most robust form of governance in all of human history. It lasted some fifteen hundred years. Of necessity, in America and elsewhere, the…"
