Re: What are you reading?

I haven't been reading too much lately. But John Varley's Slow Apocalypse grabbed my attention tonight and I read 80 pages during my daughter's dance lesson. It's intriguing so far.

Re: Say It Like It Is

The World Net Daily is unhinged. For example:

Re: Objective Deliciousness

Didn't make an argument. Just pointed out that the guy you are fawning over assumes what he's trying to prove.

He wasn't trying to prove anything other than that the argument from morality was bunk:

Re: Atheists in the Boy Scouts

Local troops can still ban gay members. The change is that local troops that don't ban gay members won't have their charters revoked like they used to.

Correction: This isn't true any more. The Jan 1, 2014 update improved on the [more]

Re: Atheists in the Boy Scouts

There were probably many that said the same thing about gay boy scouts, yet that prohibition has gone away too.

It's been lessened but it has not gone away. Gay leaders are still banned. Local troops can still ban gay members. The [more]

Re: Atheists in the Boy Scouts

A bit extreme don't you think in light of the fact that the money you spend every day states "In God We Trust?"

Re: Atheists in the Boy Scouts

Holding a 45 yr grudge is not very humanistic of you. ;P

True. I tend to get bitter. The article annoyed me enough that I had trouble sleeping last night - especially the quoting Baden-Powell in approval from 1908:

Re: Atheists in the Boy Scouts

If they reform I'm willing to forgive them. Maybe they yet will. It would be nice.

I no longer am. They've been doing this too long. They can try and convince my kids they're a worthwhile organization but they can't convince me very [more]

Re: Objective Deliciousness

That was horrible. "Let's assume morality is purely physical, like our sense of taste. See, nothing outside of the material reality needed!"

So you're arguing that deliciousness has its roots outside of material reality [more]

Re: I'm starting to get that sinking feeling

Not like that they didn't.

Yes, they did. Two right off the top of my head - the non-call on the Detroit player running into the Dallas punter and the b.s. pass interference call on Terrance Williams when he got pushed by a Detroit [more]

The Cowboys got hosed on some calls before that, too.

Re: Choke

It ain't over yet, the Cowboys pass defense could easily give up the lead.

Re: Suddenly it's 1991 again

Lions-Cowboys — but with the home field reversed.

Hopefully the home team still wins 38-6. (I think that was the score.)

Re: Religion without God

I thought atheists trusted evidence-based reason, not superstition.

Many do. But the label 'atheist' refers only to lack of belief, not the method used to arrive at that point. Raelians are atheists too.

Re: Thank you, 'skins!

I remember that game. The Cowboys had lived dangerously all year with a lousy pass defense and the Lions (smartly) opened the game passing and not featuring Barry Sanders.

Go Cowboys!

Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

The comparison to the present budget is not really valid or relevant. If the new program is brought on-line so would whatever taxes (revenues) are needed to pay for it. So, yes, the state budget MUST increase. That's obvious. As long as the cost [more]
