"It's not about saying who is allowed to, it's just about making your genes healthier before they begin the baby-making process so your child is healthier than it otherwise would be. And many people here agree it should be a choice, not a…"

"I agree. I have said so as much :) this statement is true in every way. I agree the disease has magnified his perceived brilliance and popularised science. He was on South Park and the Simpson's - the great social indicators of social…"

"I think though, there is a great difference between types of suffering. I have not suffered any great physical problems, but I have suffered abuse by others and abuse by myself. I believe this kind of suffering is far more important in defining my…"

"I don't mean to be underhanded. I mean this - if it is possible to remove a limit, what is the value in not doing so? And what is the value in not attempting to do so, if we can not? Why should human lifespan have a limit? This is what I mean…"

"Oh very true :) he became science's poster boy, and was over-glorified. It doesn't affect the brilliance of his work, but certainly blows his importance out of proportion. His importance is, vastly, to the public."

"The fact that he thinks dimensionally is, once again, irrelevant to his medical condition, I believe. Many famous physicists think very graphically. A la Dirac, for example - he was obsessed with hyper-spatial geometry, and applied it over many…"

"The social obsession for avoiding suffering has been going on since the dawn of life. It is one of the most fundamental things to all organisms, and absolutely requisite as a behavioural tool in natural selection. We can choose to suffer when it is…"

"His work on black holes and their entropy was significant. He has improved humanity - not so much as Einstein, Dirac or Feynman, but his mark is there. He is/was a good theoretical physicist."

Thanks.  My opponent there is #2 on my list of 3 irritating 'opponents'.  I've learned a great deal from him, though, and I think most of that lesson will really strengthen by debate skills in ways that apply to engaging theists.

BTW, with Sassan, be prepared for repetitive dogmatic assertions of misguided beliefs as fact.  Engage if you find it entertaining, but know before hand that he will not take part in a meaningful exchange of ideas.

Welcom to TA, OOB! Glad you jumped into a discussion without being shy about expressing an opinion. I share that opinion, although I think Robert's words got taken out of context - there was plenty of other 'dickishness' though. Robert is actually a very level headed guy with great insight, so I hope you two can share some positives.
