Matt G replied to Lorraine's discussion 'Why should we respect others' beliefs?'
"It is an interesting question.   I would say it is certainly not an absolute given that we should respect the person but not the beliefs.   A non religious example, I refuse to respect a racist.  A religious example, I refuse to…"

"It doesn't matter what social religion your family was a part of -- it's your connection to the Divine that's important. Just because different languages and religions have different words for the same things doesn't mean…"

Capitalization of God/god

"" When i say "I see no proof for god" It includes then all. Xians get no special place on the list." But if we are sticking to accuracy, you should say 'I see no need for any god', then lower case is grammatically…"

Capitalization of God/god

"Yahweh, capital, god, not.  But it doesn't particularly bother me.  But if 'Dad' is capitalised, it is fair that 'god' is too, I just can't be arsed."

Matt G replied to Sean O' Byrne's discussion 'Do atheists convert to theists, esp. after someone dies?'
"I knew someone online who claimed to have been an ex theist and reconverted because 'I saw an angel'.   The gist of the story was, she was walking along and there was a man walking front of her, he turned a corner, she followed…"

Matt G commented on Frank Arnason's blog post 'I couldn't believe it.'
"'I've asked him multiple times to explain it (Spiritual Reasoning), but his answer is always just "You'd never get it, you need god to get it.''   You should point out he spelt Circular wrong.  Sure it SOUNDS…"

Matt G replied to Justin P.'s discussion 'Embracing GMOs as Atheists'
"That is just an abject failiure of law, not an argument to stop using GMOs."

Matt G replied to Justin P.'s discussion 'Embracing GMOs as Atheists'
"This article http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature11069.html appears to show that under best conditions, organic produces 5% less than conventional farming, but the difference can be up to 34%.   But on top of…"

Matt G replied to Justin P.'s discussion 'Embracing GMOs as Atheists'
"I like organictoo, but you simply have to face the fact that in order to have only organic food to comply with your principles, you need to eliminate (a guess) halfthe human population.  If you can achieve that by birth control, great, I'm…"

Matt G replied to mark martin's discussion 'Can a catholic school teacher be an atheist?'
"One's conviction could be, as was mentioned, ameliorating the unopposed indoctrination......as well as teach kids in an envirnment that is better than many other schools, due to the nature of the selection, at least in the UK."

Matt G replied to Justin P.'s discussion 'Embracing GMOs as Atheists'
"Hmm, it is a given that more people need more food, but is it definite that more food breeds more people past a certain point?  Obviously eliminating death from starvation would have a serious short term impact on population but does the…"

"? Who is we and who is infiltrating?  You asked if a catholic school teacher could be atheist and I said they already were.  I am not sure if any of them are 'out' about it."
