Martin Brannan replied to Jeremy Jenkins's discussion '(re)Explosion of this on facebook is kind of annoying'
"Ah, good ol' Snopes.  http://www.snopes.com/religion/einstein.asp A story so full of bullshit that it relies on a lie to make it seem meaningful is nevertheless a story full of bullshit."

Martin Brannan replied to Angela Bradbury's discussion 'Which version of Christian Bible to read???'
"Right?  Something has to make the smiting and meat and magic incense burning and ark building tolerable.  "How big was that ark again?" "Dude, I've told you like 15 times already. What, are you stupid?  Just start…"

Martin Brannan replied to Angela Bradbury's discussion 'Which version of Christian Bible to read???'
"Finding the fundie who refers to the KJF as the inspired word of god is always fun, because so few have read it that they are unaware of the multiple appearances the unicorn makes. It's fun to see their expressions after they say something like…"

Martin Brannan commented on Angela Bradbury's blog post 'Please open your bible to page...'
"Hope you weren't too tied into the entertaining part. It's unbelievably repetitive. By the time you get to the end of the pentateuch, you will have read about the odors Yahweh finds pleasing about 200,000 times, give or take a thousand."

Martin Brannan replied to Angela Bradbury's discussion 'Which version of Christian Bible to read???'
"I, personally, think the KJV is the worst possible choice. It is written in archaic English and not well researched. On the plus side, it does have Unicorns. I would recommend the NSRV, probably in the Oxford study version. It is well researched and…"

Martin Brannan commented on Citizen Atheist's blog post 'Intelligent Design Fails'
"I was taught in church that God made me unique like a snowflake. I should have known something was up when they also taught me that God is as strong as a unicorn.  I would have thought stronger."

"Does this mean I'm not a snowflake?"

Martin Brannan commented on Michael Merritt's blog post 'Response to: Which is Worse? Islam v. Christianity'
"Instantly or historically?  I think however you slice it, they are equally bad.  Historically, Christians have probable caused more mayhem and disaster than Muslims, but as Yahweh's third child, Islam had a delayed start.  The…"

Martin Brannan replied to Stuart Leader's discussion 'Interpreting Dreams...'
"Sounds like you had a waking dream.  As a PTSD sufferer, I have them all the time.  That would be why you felt paralyzed and unable to move - although your mind was partially awake, your body was suffering from a self-imposed paralysis…"

Martin Brannan replied to Elisha K.'s discussion 'What do I do?'
"Maybe this was an anti-placebo effect.  "Gee, I didn't realize it was so bad, but if people I don't even know find it necessary to pray for me, I must really be boned.""
Jan 6, 2012
Martin Brannan replied to Elisha K.'s discussion 'What do I do?'
"I am willing to waste three seconds to say "thank you" even if just to make someone else feel better.  Just because I don't believe in gods doesn't mean I don't believe in civility. To me, saying that you'll pray…"

Martin Brannan replied to Elisha K.'s discussion 'What do I do?'
"Why not just politely thank them?  Prayer may not work but it doesn't hurt and I see no need to be confrontational when someone is trying to be helpful and what they're doing won't make things worse. Why should it grate your…"

The Bible is Anti-American

"I've yet to reconcile a religion with a fundamental commandment against covetousness and an economy based on capitalism."

Martin Brannan replied to Sarah Casing's discussion 'Reading the Bible'
"I agree, but there's something so satisfying about telling someone to "knoweth thyself" and wait 45 minutes for the light to turn on."

Martin Brannan commented on Robert Karp's blog post '7 simple, common-sense evidences that blow the literal Bible out of the water'
"Most fundamentalists I have tried talking reason to about the likelihood that everything in the bible being literally true counter that apparently pre-biblical evidence was planted by god as a test of faith."
