"Haha good course of action. Yeah "Darwin's bulldog" not Aldous Huxley. Thing is with that definition that you put yourself under is very much how an atheist would describe themselves. Dawkins, Dennet, Hitchens and Harris have all at…"
"I have to start here "I wonder just how many AIDS victims have died of treatment and not the rather illusive HIV virus?" Are you serious?? Really, were you dead set being serious with that comment? Show me cases where the treatment of the…"
"Yeah I agree but that is one of the dickhead arguments against it: "it's not natural" which is ridiculous. It was the first thing that came to mind in this discussion and definitely not my own opinion."
"I understand your point about consent, but what I can not fully agree with is that a whole people, if given the choice and education of what life would be like as both independent and as a surf, that they would all still chose to be servile to men.…"
"I have to completely disagree with you that morality is relative and this is part of what Sam talks about (which I totally agree). It's not ok in some countries to treat women as subordinate or sexual slaves when we can show that it causes…"
"Wow, talk about obsession.
I know you said often, but I take often as meaning more times than not which I said is a gross exaggeration. I have had my appendix removed, my older sister with Down Syndrome has had her oversized tongue surgically…"

"I wouldn't mind adding a twist to this question: What if a close friend of yours was critically ill but either (a) Was already religious and felt the only solution was faith healing; or (b) Wasn't religious but felt the only solution was…"
"Haha kind of an oxymoron as the only difference I can find when looking up the difference in the terms agnostic and atheist, is that some people label agnostic as feeling like the answer to whether there is a god/s is unknowable and not worth…"
"I can't help myself with some facebook posts; when they are bigoted enough or just not thought through, I have to make a witty (to the best of my non-comedic abilities) remark. Today there was one saying "Rely heavily upon the grace of God…"
"I had an experience that could kind of be along this line of thought. An ex of mine, with no religious background or understanding (parents thought she would learn it in her life n make a decision, though this just left her with no knowledge of the…"
"Yeah, I've noticed you saying this a few times after people's comments. What else would you call it except nothingness? You don't exist so your consciousness doesn't exist so there is nothing, hence nothingness. What seriously is…"
"Depends what you mean by death? The dying part still scares me somewhat, however I never really had a fear of nothing after death, rather it was a sadness at everything I may miss when I'm gone.
Losing my want of a heaven/afterlife came all of…"
