D2 replied to Joan Denoo's discussion The cost of masculine crime
"I definitely agree about violence being heavily influenced by your environment. I think that the problem is beyond just government help (although it could assist some). Boys aren't generally taught how to handle their feelings. And in…"

D2 replied to Joan Denoo's discussion The cost of masculine crime
"A couple of things. It's definitely beliefs and culture, probably mildly exacerbated by testosterone. But without the culture and beliefs, it'd just be a bunch of guys that are way too into board games. Second, if your testosterone is so…"

D2 replied to Bertold Brautigan's discussion Should Five-Year-Olds Be Taught That They're Hellbound Sinners?

D2 replied to Bertold Brautigan's discussion Should Five-Year-Olds Be Taught That They're Hellbound Sinners?
"The minister can probably call himself moral because he believes what he is saying 100%. He is backward, to be sure, and those who recognize that he is trapped in a fantasyland know it is a terrible thing that he is doing. But not likely than not,…"

"Oh, I know. It always seemed silly to me that dice were gambling but another device that delivered a more or less random result was ok. It's just another example of the complete lack of critical thinking."

D2 replied to Bertold Brautigan's discussion Should Five-Year-Olds Be Taught That They're Hellbound Sinners?
"We have to break the cycle of brainwashing and give people a safe place to speak and think freely. As isolated as I feel, I know that a great many people think similar thoughts and are afraid to talk about it here. I, for one, will be teaching my…"

D2 replied to Kalista Whitney's discussion Was there a particular event in your life that contributed to you becoming atheist?
"My parents explained the truth of Santa Claus to me by saying that we did things in the spirit of Santa. That is, he is a metaphor for joy, giving, and love (and apparently police state surveillance and behavioural intervention using fear). When I…"
