"I agree that the only way to minimize cognitive dissonance is to constantly critically question our beliefs, to test that they are rational, ethical and based (as much as possible) on rigorous scientific results (i.e. as empirical as possible). That…"

Allen J. Thoma replied to Doone's discussion People do Change over Time - Examples

Allen J. Thoma replied to Sydni Moser's discussion Has Obama Waged A War On Religion?
"I agree, I read this article this morning on the NPR website and wondered what universe these conservatives inhabit (probably the Bush universe?).  If anything Obama has been more than charitable to religion than they deserve, after…"

Allen J. Thoma commented on Neal's blog post The GOP is the Greatest Threat to Humanity.
"Great post, I couldn't agree more, the Rethuglicans are a bane on all thinking individuals. For an interesting read try David Michael Green,  http://www.regressiveantidote.net/index.htm.  I like him as a counterpoint to all the drivel…"

Allen J. Thoma replied to Ava Wilson's discussion NDAA 2012 - Suspending Habeas Corpus
"I disagree in that I don't think Obama did the best with what he had.  I am not the first to be of the opinion that he uses the tools of rhetoric poorly.  He should be up there on the bully pulpit pushing his themes again and again…"

Allen J. Thoma replied to Adriana's discussion The 50 top atheists in the world today
"I'm disappointed in the list, and the ordering.  My take is that Hitchens and Dawkins have done more to promote rational thought and atheism (maybe including Randi & Dennett) than any living humans.  I must be ignorant too, as I…"
