Re: Musing on hotels

Most downtown hotels charge market rates for parking.

Re: Atheist's 10 commandments

What about Rationalist?

Being a devout rationalist is highly over rated (and boring).

Re: Atheist's 10 commandments

Like not collecting baseball cards?

Exackly so.

The word shouldn't even be necessary.

It would be a long long list if we were labeled or defined by things we don't believe in and don't do.

Re: Atheist's 10 commandments

It is odd we have a name for what we are.

But an atheist is not who I am. It merely describes something I don't do.

Re: Atheist's 10 commandments

Maybe I would feel better about such things as these ten commandments if they came under a different label, such as humanist.

Maybe. Avoid labels lest you want to be labeled.

Re: Guns are safe, guns don't kill people...

Why wasn't this on the news?

Probably not on the news because accidental shootings are so common they would inundate the news... and gun accidents are such a common occurrence that it's no more newsworthy than car accidents.

Re: Dinner sized turtles?

Baby turtles are small, but some of them grow to dinner plate size.

Is that dinner size?

Re: The Daily Show Mocks Freedom From Religion F

OK...so could the restaurant require me to arch my arm up and touch the tip of my finger to the top of my head and do a pirouette to get a discount? We're talking about a not-necessarily-religious action, right?

Re: The atheist's bible study

For me atheism is more than just rejecting the fairy tales/ nightmares of religion. It's also the other side of the coin - finding a better explanation.
