Michael Rosch commented on Reggie's blog post 'Examining the Examiners'
"Reggie, I appreciate hearing your feelings on this. I honestly nad no idea people would find this action objectionable. I personally don't really get how these actions can be described as lacking in integrity or responsibility. It certainly was…"

Skepticism 101: Will the world end in 2012?

Here's an excerpt from my latest Examiner article: "For thousands of years people have been predicting the end of the world, often even supplying specific dates near in the future that it would happen. And so far as I can tell, every single last one of them has been demonstrably proven 100% wrong." To read the rest, click here.

Reggie commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"Atheism is a rejection of beliefs. If we want to build something, we don't build by rejecting materials. The materials that religion bring to the job site are crap and we all agree on that. This is what binds us. But when it comes to accepting…"

Michael Rosch and D'Holbach are now friends

D'Holbach commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"I've just relocated this discussion to the "Open forum." It bears the title "Is the term 'atheist' inadequate?""

Michael Rosch commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"I like "atheist" because, as Reggie said, the term serves its purpose well. It concisely defines my position in that arena. However, because it only means non-belief in gods, it's but one of many flags or banners I proudly wave. I…"

D'Holbach commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"Hi Michael, I like the idea of flags instead of boxes. The problem, for me, is that the term "atheist" has started to seem more like a box than like a flag. It's very limiting: it means simply "disbelief in gods." It…"

Michael Rosch commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"I also agree with D'Holbach. While atheism only refers to non-belief in deities, I think of myself as more than just an atheist. I'm rationalist and a skeptic was well. I also like the term that Thunderf00t used when debating Ray Comfort,…"

D'Holbach commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"Thanks for your remarks, Dave! "Rational humanists"--that's pretty good."

Reggie commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"Standing against something is not, I would contend, a sound basis for a long-term, tightly knit community. Not sound but it can be effective. The common enemy will make even strange bedfellows. But I see your point and agree with it as I have come…"

D'Holbach commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"I completely understand your wariness about labels, Reggie. Many atheists' refusal to adopt a positive philosophy, however, seems to me to have several rather serious side effects. For one thing, it's very hard for atheists to form part of…"
Jul 25, 2009
Reggie commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"I think the term atheism serves it's purpose well. I don't think positive claims of any kind should be foisted upon it. There are a lot of terms out there that could apply to any positive claims that better describe me, but I don't…"
Jul 25, 2009
Dave G commented on Michael Rosch's blog post 'They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?'
"Rational humanists? And I agree, D'Holbach, 'atheist' is far too vague of a term, as all if means is an absence of a belief in gods. It may be an accurate description of what I am, but it is by no means a complete one. Rational,…"

They gave Bill Maher the Richard Dawkins Award?

Posted on July 24, 2009 at 4:13pm 19 Comments

Here's an excerpt from my latest Examiner article: "I wanted to believe that Maher was only a little wacky when it comes to modern medicine but I really had no idea how much of that Kool-Aid he drank. But Orac has opened my eyes to Maher’s beliefs when arguing why Maher should not receive the Richard Dawkins Award, an award that is intended to not only celebrate one’s promotion of atheism but one’s commitment to science and reason..."

The 40th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

Posted on July 22, 2009 at 4:14pm 0 Comments

Here's an excerpt from my latest Examiner article. "The moon landing remains arguably the greatest human achievement of all time. It's so sad that media coverage of its 40th anniversary has to inevitably cover the ramblings of insane deniers who insist that it didn't happen.



Moon Landing Deniers use the same faulty logic as any other denialst..." To read the rest, please… Continue

Psychics contact the ghost of Michael Jackson

Posted on July 21, 2009 at 2:43pm 1 Comment

This is my latest short Examiner article. Here's an excerpt: "'Psychics' claim to have contacted Michael Jackson’s ghost . . .who should have told them to Beat It! Should have seen this one coming. It was only a matter of time before the celebrity “psychics” exploited the death of such this major celebrity." To read the rest, click here.

Morristown UFO hoaxers speak in NYC

Posted on July 19, 2009 at 2:31pm 1 Comment

This is an excerpt from my latest Examiner piece: "Back in January of this year, New Jersey residents living near Morris Plains started seeing something strange in the night sky, a series of mysterious, unexplained lights. This left many to wonder if these lights might be a space craft from outer space. It wasn't long before the mainstream media picked up the story and started started speaking to UFO "experts" like those at the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), who repeated insisted that the sighting… Continue
