Neal commented on Carnun's blog post Explain That!
"Lolz. Not rambling at all. I agree, anecdotal evidence is fairly useless. Arguing with someone who believes in an unprovable event is fairly useless. Evidence is what it takes. And open minds should allow for a reasoned position on what they are…"

"You mentionned many things in that blog, Carnum;  the thing that rang the most bells with me was that we can never be in each other brain's..."

Marianne commented on Carnun's blog post Causing Offence
"I also believe that the institutions should be answerable to a secular government and home schooling abolished; if creationist schools ceased to exist, if religious schools allowed freedom of thought, meaning accepting different points of view, the…"

Neal commented on Carnun's blog post Causing Offence
"I agree with the thought that it is the institution that needs to be fought, not so much the follower. Cut off the head and the body will fall.  But like Michel says, every so often pissing off a theist does a body good. When they're mad,…"

Michel commented on Carnun's blog post Causing Offence
"Keyword: occasionally. In any case, some people's outrage threshold is so low that they'll be triggered into defensive labeling by your mere statement of atheism. So why abstain, if it does YOU good?"

Neal commented on Carnun's blog post I Call Bollocks: "Contraception: A Psychological Prostitution"
"It is a means of dominating another being, keep them barefoot and pregnant and out of your hair."

Michel commented on Carnun's blog post I Call Bollocks: "Contraception: A Psychological Prostitution"
"1- Anybody who "knows" anything about a divine plan needs to be interrogated thoroughly and screened for other mental issues.  2- This reeks of nostalgia for a time when women were indeed half-people."

Marianne commented on Carnun's blog post I Call Bollocks: "Contraception: A Psychological Prostitution"
"Women have always been second-rate to men.  Contraception has been an issue for so long... I                                          …"

Adriana commented on Carnun's blog post 'Atheism is for white people'
"For those of you interested in atheism in the black community in the US, reading Dr. Sikivu Hutchinson's blog or books is a must. She is a member of our site too!"

Michel commented on Carnun's blog post 'Atheism is for white people'
"@Neo - At the rate we are currently mating, those differences will sort of brown-out soon enough. Some countries are remarkable in that respect. In Cuba for instance, where you have incredibly rich demographics - Africans, Spaniards,…"

Onyango Makagutu commented on Carnun's blog post 'Atheism is for white people'
"Some friends have told philosophy is a pastime for the rich. Only one whose basic needs have been met can engage in philosophy. As to atheism being a white affair. Well anyone who says that has not met me :)"

"@Carnun, and hi! Ha-ha, try and explain it to the homophobic-by-default folks there, esp. using the word 'bedfellows', apart from being futile, it could also be downright dangerous. In informal speech,: when a group of…"

uldis ozolants commented on Carnun's blog post 'Atheism is for white people'
"In Central Europe where I happen to write from, owing to local traditions and background people would regrettably tend to associate atheism with 'gay rights', 'communist nostalgia' 'die-hard feminism' etc. and thus…"

Michel commented on Carnun's blog post 'Atheism is for white people'
"We are ALL Africans. White skin devolved from black because some of us chose a long time ago to travel to northern climes. That's about the only real difference between the so-called human 'races'. "

Marianne commented on Carnun's blog post Effective Altruism
"I wholeheartedly agree and find it a noble cause.  But, it should reach people who have the means to do so to get them to donate 1% of their income.  If you live on poverty level in your own area, you can't even afford that 1%."

Marianne commented on Carnun's blog post The Scriptural Illiteracy of Believers
"I didn't know of Pascal's wager and must admit I found it funny...  Moost christians, buddhists, muslims, haven't read the scriptures they supposedly follow,  they just follow  their leaders like sheeps..."

Explain That!

"So, you're an Atheist/Scientist/Rationalist/Skeptic, eh?"

"Yes... And?"

"I saw a ghost - EXPLAIN THAT!"

...

If something similar hasn't happened to you guys yet (assuming you're all 'Atheists/Scientists/Rationalists/Skeptics', which I hope isn't necessarily the…

What happened to all of the good miracles?

I mean, the interesting stuff, coincidentally, all happened long before video cameras - or the internet - were around and ready to at least semi-reliably record and distribute actual…

Putting 'Absolute Truth' into Context

Posted on July 27, 2013 at 10:18am 0 Comments

Slavery is wrong. Rape is wrong. Homophobia is wrong... The list goes on - and there aren't too many around in 'enlightened' society who'd disagree, because, generally speaking, people are better than their holy books (and their Gods).

This is obviously a very good thing. If it weren't the case, civilisation (if we could call it that) would be an immensely violent, fearful, unjust place. Your daughter gets raped? Marry her to the rapist. Someone steals a…
