Started this discussion. Last reply by TJ Feb 16. 10 Replies

"Wow, looking at this again I'm surprised how long ago it was posted. Anyway, those who make this critique seem to assume people become atheists, rather than having never been theists at all. Of course, even assuming that their supposed…"

"Re: Why do atheists believe what they believe? Apparently it's due to a breakdown of the family, and desire not to be restricted by Judeo-Christian morality. Yet the author complains of stereotypical explanations for theism by the New Atheists.…"

"How could it not be the reverse in this case? If you have the love of a God, it has to exist, or you're mistaken about that. As for gods, few people now believe in gods which aren't loving. It seems rather pointless, even if one did, to…"

"I knew he was in uniform. The question was whether it was prohibited or fell under the protection of religious expression. From my reading it isn't clear. The military authorities will decide I'm sure."

"Well, according to the link the regulations also protect the right of personnel to religious expression and practice. I think context matters here. So far as I can tell his statements were made in a private gathering his subordinates did not have to…"

Michael replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
"Rousseau's view can be summed up as: "Humans are born good, and made evil by society." Anyone who accepts biological factors in rape must disagree on that score, as Paglia does."

Michael replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
"@Freek: I find a pervasive false dichotomy of rape being "either" an act of violence "or" sex. To me it's obviously both-hence the term "sexual violence", no? It's also not the case that all behavior has to be…"

Michael replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
" "The levels of violence and force involved in rape typically stop at the level needed for the goal of sexual access. Gratuitous violence is not typical of rape." There saying usually only the violence necessary to achieve the rape is…"
