Richard Dean Barnes replied to allie grace's discussion 'Do you think atheism is a religion in itself?'
"For me personally, my atheism is a result of what I believe, not the source of it. Yes, I make what I believe into a personal religion that happens not to include belief in an alleged "supernatural" or any of what I call the nonsense of…"

Richard Dean Barnes commented on Fadi Qassis's blog post 'when to decide it is time to divorce?'
"I think only you can really answer this question because only you know if there is any value left in the relationship. For me personally, when the love is gone, so is the marriage. Simple. I marry for love. Without it, there is nothing that I define…"

Good News Everyone!

"I suppose the sign is true - there is no hell, thus, no atheists in hell. They quite likely WILL become the dominant species here, so, yeah ... good news all around."

Richard Dean Barnes replied to Bryan B's discussion 'Dealing with a close friend who now dislikes me based on my beliefs alone.'
"I suppose the short of it is this: of what value is it to you to remain true to who you are and wish to be, and of what value is it to let some or most of that go to hold onto a relationship where you are not the only decisionmaker? If the…"

Richard Dean Barnes commented on Misty: Baytheist Living!'s blog post 'Facebook Drama Stuff'
"I say many times that individuals in many cultures seem continually busy being a good this or that, a good Christian, a good Muslim, a good Jew or Buddhist, a good communist, a good American, a good soldier, a good feminist, a good or…"

Richard Dean Barnes replied to David Ross Mann's discussion 'How should Atheists swear?'
"As a professional linguist, I have to disagree with the statement "one cannot understand English without a basic knowledge of Christianity". That's a rather unsupportable assertion. Sure, there is much in English with what seems to be…"

Richard Dean Barnes commented on Scarlette Blues's blog post 'Oh no! don't abort your baby! [facebook rambling]'
"Well, of course, a belief system does factor into it - your belief it is right to abort a fetus and belief that a doctor who is willing to assist you with that has a right to do so, among many other associated beliefs involved in your decision.…"

Richard Dean Barnes replied to Michael Andrews's discussion 'Any opinions about May 21, 2011?'
"Opinion on May 21, 2011? Sure, it comes just before May 22, 2011. I will be 51 this year ... in August."

Richard Dean Barnes commented on Morgan Matthew's blog post 'Bill Nye Boo'd In Texas For Saying The Moon Reflects The Sun'
"Yes, Bill Nye is correct - you really can't know. That makes you wonder why so many people claim to know and believe anyway. "You really can't know" is what makes me an atheist. There is no fact or reason to believe. Second, Bill…"

Richard Dean Barnes replied to Arcus's discussion 'Possible argument [for] not against theism?'
"One mustn't treat everything one can possibly imagine as equal to the real until it can be, in fact, demonstrated to be equal to the real. There is much each of us can imagine, but very little of what we imagine can be reasonably demonstrated…"
