"This is why the order/disorder perspective doesn't work. It's distracting and confusing.
Unseen, appearances can be deceiving. So can the language we use,eh? anyways, there's order and disorder in most everything, but, as far as we…"
"Christian, I don't know if you're serious or not, but what the *&^%$ is the 'argument from queerness'?
Also, what do you mean by 'anti-realist' in regards to morality?
I really think the order/disorder…"
"Rhetorics is most useful in obfuscation. Case in point-William Lane Craig's debates.

"Your first sentence is incorrect. The 'value' of something isn't the product of its properties, it's a subjective opinion each of us places on that something based on how we percieve it, regardless of its innate…"
"Atlas Shrugged. For the morality (what else is there?). As with most things, read in context-as a product of it's author; her experiences and the times (1950's).
I suspect the more vocal detractors haven't read the book, and are only…"
"Maybe he was crazy. The fact that he called you xyz, instead of 'stupid f'ing atheist' would belie your theory. As an aside, I'm an unapologetic atheist in the buckle of the belt, and my nextdoor neighbor, a fairly famous…"
