Reed Byers replied to Dan Ashton Lloyd's discussion ''Google Killed God''
"The internet promotes vast amounts of information sharing -- but that information is not necessarily the truth. I suspect that what the internet does is introduce people to CONSENSUS. And what's the consensus on religion? I think the consensus…"

Reed Byers replied to Yeddie Jones's discussion 'What has the Christian Church done to you?'
"Just to be another voice in the chorus... ;) The church did nothing to me that is doesn't do to everyone: bore me to tears once a week with a big Jesus Pep Rally.  Yay Jesus.  You're great.  See ya next week to tell you how…"

Reed Byers replied to Unseen's discussion 'Would the Connecticut elementary school toll have been smaller if...'
"Tell ya what, Unseen. YOU convince the country to spend the money to do it PROPERLY -- well-trained currently-active policemen acting as security guards, *NOT* minimum-wage bus drivers looking for extra cash (and fer chrissakes, not teachers in…"

Reed Byers replied to dizzyduckie's discussion 'Random little question for ex-religious people.'
"For what it's worth, one of MY favorite songs is "The Little Drummer Boy". Can't help it.  I just love that song. Obviously, I don't believe the lyrics tell a true story.  But then again, "Santa Claus is…"

Reed Byers replied to Josh Leach's discussion 'What do you think of attack baptism?'
"Water?  You miss the point.  This guy needs to be forcibly baptized into the Flying Spaghetti Monster religion by throwing a plate of spaghetti in his face..."

Reed Byers commented on Carol Foley's blog post 'So angry I'm shaking...'
"For what it's worth, I'm 44.  And my mom (who I moved halfway across the country to avoid, for mental health reasons) *STILL* treats me like a child.  Especially on the topic of religion. What's ironic is, SHE turned ME onto…"

Reed Byers replied to Sophie's discussion 'Who are you going to vote for?'
"Yes, the two party system is a large part of the problem.   But "rejecting" it doesn't change anything.   Until there is major political reform, third party votes are wasted.  Worse -- they are effectively votes for the…"

Reed Byers replied to Southern Skeptic's discussion 'Best state in the US to move to?'
"I can attest that Oregon IS both beautiful, and liberal. Oregon's central Willamette Valley (the Corvallis/Albany area) is an hour from the Coast, an hour from the mountains, an hour from Portland, an hour from Eugene, and only half an hour…"

Reed Byers replied to Sophie's discussion '(NSFW) Do you find this girl attractive? Why or why not?'
"1) Turn-ons: Lots of bare skin.  Skin is always nice. 2) Turn-offs: Too much makeup, "trying too hard".  I don't like "sultry". 3) Why (would) she be considered beautiful? I guess American society likes artificial…"

Reed Byers replied to Mike Glickman's discussion 'To Kindle or Not to Kindle' in the group Read Atheist
"To Kindle.   Definitely, to Kindle.   Houses are simply not built large enough to hold physical copies of all the books I want access to at a moment's notice.  :)   But remember: you don't have to BUY a Kindle, to…"

Reed Byers replied to Gaytor's discussion 'Why Obama Needs to be a One Term President'
"Hmmm...  In general, you're right.  But sometimes "non-swing" states surprise us.   I would personally hate myself if I was in a state that was EXPECTED to be safe for Repubs, but come election day, actually had a…"

Reed Byers replied to Gaytor's discussion 'Why Obama Needs to be a One Term President'
"It's your vote.  Use it (or not) as you see fit.   As long as you realize that once again, you're giving the Republican candidate what they want.   There's no "None of the above" vote.  Nobody is going to…"

Reed Byers replied to Gaytor's discussion 'Why Obama Needs to be a One Term President'
"The point is, how are we going to tell him he's WRONG by electing Sarah Palin or her ilk?   Do you think ANYONE will look at a Sarah Palin win and say "gee, the country is leaning more liberal"?   We need to elect Obama --…"

Reed Byers replied to Gaytor's discussion 'Why Obama Needs to be a One Term President'
"You vote for Obama in 2008 and so you are obligated to vote for him in 2012 no matter what he has done? Is that really the system that you want?   No, that's not what I want.  What I want is a TRUE, multi-party system with…"
