David S replied to James's discussion Dawkins too "in your face"?
"It depends on your objective, temperament and character. If your inclined toward spleen venting and think that anyone who might not agree with you is stupid, and/or that your're some kind of revolutionary at the forefront of some grand social…"

David S replied to greyfoot's discussion "Independent Individualist" and Randian Objectivism: Good or Bad?
"My initial impression is that the site in not very representative of Ayn Rand. But, it's been so long since I read any of her work, I'm not sure. I do know that Ayn Rand was an atheist and would have no sympathy for religious based…"

David S replied to Joel Mensah's discussion Evolutionary stable strategies
"It might be useful for some purposes. But with regard to human behaviors it is better to think in terms of habits, not instincts. Genes and combinations of genes only establish an array of possible habits but do not strictly determine behaviors. In…"

David S replied to Athianarchist's discussion Is Obama a Closet Atheist?
"No. Not at all. Until he was elected, Obama went to a church, in Chicago, that preaches something called "liberation theology". Liberation theology is, more or less, extreme left-wing fundamentalism. When their doctrines are applied to…"

David S replied to Septic Sceptic's discussion Atheist opinions on the war on terror
""I personally would not have expected to find much support among the atheist community" Then your expectations are misguided. "Atheist" is a peculiar word because, unlike most terms ending in "ist", there is no…"

David S replied to Athianarchist's discussion Is Obama a Closet Atheist?
"Given his biographical background, to date, it appears that Obama's primary goal is to implement his religious beliefs as public policy to the extent practically possible. If presenting the appearance of secularism and not going to church…"

David S replied to Goz's discussion CNN refuses to air this video.
"Why do you call it a "video" instead of an "ad"?"
Sep 3, 2009
David S replied to Dawn K's discussion How we support our false beliefs.
""Motivated reasoning" is something that has been known and understood since the ancient Greeks and Logic, properly used, has always provided the analytical tools to expose it. I suppose it's good that some sociologists have confirmed…"

David S replied to Goz's discussion George Orwell rolls in his grave.
""You really need to watch this." Why? It is a prime example of the very thing it claims to expose. It's just preaching to the left-wing choir and a long winded lie to right right wingers. The only people who might need to watch this…"

David S replied to David Ivester's discussion Why our government calls upon us to pledge allegiance to the republic "under God"
"You don't owe the country any allegiance "just because you were born here". You have the right to leave. You're not six anymore; you get to decide. But if you choose not to leave, then you should honor the country that feeds you…"

David S replied to David Ivester's discussion Why our government calls upon us to pledge allegiance to the republic "under God"
""government calls on its citizens to recite", "forcing citizens to this choice": The government does neither of these. The pledge is entirely voluntary notwithstanding situations involving social pressure. Some citizens in some…"

David S replied to David Marino's discussion Prayer Alternative
"You don't need a substitute; just an understanding of what prayer is. Prayer, meditation, keeping journals, contemplation, etc. are forms of talking to one's self. So, do some form(s) of talking to yourself about whatever you need or want…"

David S replied to Chris Crenshaw's discussion 2012 IM SCARED....
"What's to be scared about? There have been "predictions" of apocalypse floating around since ancient times. Some gain some popularity; others don't. At any given time there are theories of The End being promoted by one group or…"

David S replied to Reality Activist's discussion Atheists of Unlike Minds
"No. It isn't "bigotry". You seem to be laboring under the illusion that atheism constitutes some kind of belief or value system or that being an atheist requires rejection of every damn thing that religious people think. Atheism just…"

David S replied to Jezzy's discussion This World is Ruled By Idiots
"I don't care one way or the other about gay "marriage". Contractual arrangements can serve the same purpose, just as well as far as the state is concerned. The desire that such arrangement be called "marriage" is some kind…"
