David Layton replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Academic papers generated by computer programs widespread in the group Atheists who love Science!
"The phenomenon is a call for better peer-review processes. It also exposes a phenomenon of the last 10 years or so involving unscrupulous conference organizers and journal publishers taking advantage of the publish or perish imperative. It does not…"

David Layton replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion New love interest in the group The Tardis Page
"Were they ever married? After all, she "married" a robot facsimile."

David Layton commented on Donald R Barbera's blog post Free Will?
"Donald is right about the "trick question" nature of free will. The problem is that in the popular imagination, free will is confused with ideas of "rights" that people supposedly have, and takes the form "I have the will to…"

Is a new Cold War brewing?

"I do not think so. The problem is that Russia never reconciled itself to being a second-rate empire, not ever and not now. Putin is trying hard to maintain the illusion of Russian superiority by appeals to nationalistic and ethnic stupidity. All of…"

David Layton commented on Anthony Jordan's blog post Proving the Existence of a God
"Tony - Yes, atheists have done some bad things. That's just being human. However, no atheist that I know of has done it in the name of atheism. Theists like to point to Mao or Stalin, but they did their bad deeds in the name of communism, not…"

"My book "The Humanism of Doctor Who" received a positive review in the SFRA Review journal (Science Fiction Research Association)."

David Layton replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Univ of CA sells out research in the group Atheists who love Science!
"It is legal because most of the regents are business people, having nothing to do with education, and business people are emboldened by the current political climate allowing privatization of almost everything. The corporations are in almost…"

David Layton replied to James Kz's discussion Wyoming Teen Ousted from Science Fair
"Where does one get enough deuterium?"

David Layton replied to James Kz's discussion Wyoming Teen Ousted from Science Fair
"It probably has something to do with Microwave ovens and non-dairy creamer, the properties of both being deep mysteries (filed under Things I Learned from Pinky and the Brain)."
Jun 8, 2013
David Layton commented on American Humanist Association's group American Humanist Association (AHA)
"I will be giving a talk related to my book "The Humanism of Doctor Who" at the July Bookclub Lecture of the Humanist Fellowship of San Diego. The event will be Sunday, July 31, 1:30 pm at the Rancho Bernardo Branch of the San Diego Public…"

David Layton replied to Leslee Love's discussion What do YOU think the Doctor's greatest secret is? in the group The Tardis Page
"And now we'll have to wait until November to find out how John Hurt is as "The Doctor." I hope he gets some serious time. We were cheated when got only 5 minutes of Derek Jacobi as The Master. Oh, what a Master he could have been."

David Layton replied to James M. Martin's discussion Breitbart Group Claims "New Evidence" Hitler Was Gay
"No surprise here. Few conservative commentators lied so proficiently as Breitbart. His legacy carries on."
May 14, 2013
David Layton replied to John "Jack" Kolinski's discussion Responding to Believers' "Difficult" Questions About Atheism
"Your answers are very good. I doubt Dr. Saunders will actually take time to consider them. These questions are really just tired theological justifications, the same ones trotted out by half-scholars like William Lane Craig, formulated into…"
May 7, 2013
David Layton replied to Leslee Love's discussion What do YOU think the Doctor's greatest secret is? in the group The Tardis Page
"Doctor's greatest secret: He got a mail-order degree."
May 5, 2013
David Layton replied to A Former Member's discussion Frans de Waal's Bottom-Up Morality: We're Not Good Because Of God in the group Atheist Morality
"An increasing number of animal studies are trending in this direction, that nature provides the environment for an evolutionary development of basic ethics. This is beginning to tie into brain studies showing that some behaviors thought…"
Apr 22, 2013
David Layton replied to A Former Member's discussion 18 obsolete words, which should never have gone out of style in the group LINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANS
"Some of these look like single-use words recorded in only one source and likely made up for that one time, such as "snoutfair." Actually that sounds like a Scot protesting: "It's snoutfair.""

Hi David, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise--as freethinking atheists do--that gods are phoney and religion is used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.

Terry Meaden (retired academic)
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 260 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
