Joan, thanks for the Big Think article.  I'm not familiar with that site, but have added it to my Bookmarks.

Joseph, I've not seen Idiocracy.  It has a very good premise, but sounds like it beats you over the head with it's moral.  What did you think of it?

Comment by Joseph P on January 23, 2013 at 6:06pm

Something similar to the premise of Idiocracy, in other words.

Science writer Matt Ridley and Douglas Kenrick, worry that reproductive patterns favor greater population growth among those “…who harness the human capacity for superstition and panic.” In essence, the dumb, who can’t reason as well, are outbreeding the smart, threatening “…the triumph of faith over reason.”

Madhukar, I have been reading your writings and I highly recommend them for a good solid background on atheism and its roots. Your quotes accurately reflect the authors' intent, and your organization makes reading flow ... indeed you are creating a "page turner".

No whining?  Well, OK, I'll try :)

I like the go team smilies :)

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 5, 2013 at 7:26pm

Go Team! One for the Atheist Brigade! Powered by good sense, refusing to be a victim, standing up for ourselves and each other, strong, decisive, clear, specific, a backbone of steel and arms of velvet, confident, competent, and compassionate!


NO blaming, accusing, criticizing, nit-picking, name calling, slandering, apologizing,  asking for permission or whining.

Just the facts.

I'll put my hands together for you also Joan.  And I will remember your story the next time I'm in a position like that and it will give me extra courage.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 3, 2013 at 1:38am

Oh Paula and Chris, I know you both are strong, wise and compassionate; this is just an unfamiliar process for you.
