Obfuskation replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Men raising kids'
"I think you'd have to apply specific criteria against a specific method of parenting.  I'm guessing it would involve a lot of trade offs depending upon what criteria are valued more.  For example, a parent who is more focused on…"

Obfuskation commented on IkeArrumba's blog post 'Book Report for "New Proofs For The Existence of God"'
"How much of it is "new" proofs, and how much is just a repackaging of the same tired "old" proofs.  I get the impression that the more educated theists just wrap arguments from ignorance, watchmaker, and other debunked…"

Obfuskation replied to Jesus Christ's discussion 'The need for knife control'

Obfuskation replied to Jesus Christ's discussion 'The need for knife control'
" I don't think that is clear at all.  Knives are extremely common, and would be very difficult to control.  Also, once they are controlled, people will simply discover how much more lethal things like roofing hammers are. "

Obfuskation replied to Renee's discussion 'Isolating Potential Allies'
