Loren Miller commented on Eric Tyler Powell's blog post Hitchens Takes on Fox News on Jerry Falwell
"Bare-knuckle commentary.  Hitch never believed in kid gloves as it comes to religion or religious hacks like Falwell, and I for one am glad of it.  If the idiot children from Fox were stupid enough to drop their left (which they did), they…"

Hitchens Takes on Fox News on Jerry Falwell

I've transcribed this segment from Fox News after the death of Jerry Falwell for your reading enjoyment. It has become a Hitchens youtube classic, with over a million views. It is obvious why this is the case: Hitchens is at his best here, and his concluding jab at Falwell is perhaps the greatest thing that has ever been said on the mainstream media. Without further ado:Dramatis Personae: Alan Colmes, former host of Fox News show Hannity & Colmes. Sean Hannity, former host of Fox News show…See More

"I am always peeved at english Canada for valuing 'multi-culturalism' ABOVE other values. Good point. In Europe multi-culturalism is often seen as a threat to social integration anyway, even among the Left. Cultural diversity is good,…"

Wallace Stevens: Most Eloquent of American Atheists? (Part I)

Wallace Stevens is now firmly regarded by the community of poets, professional critics, and—I think—the poetry reading public (sadly dwindling every day to not much more that poets and critics) as the greatestAmerican poet of the last century. I will say right now that I share this opinion: indeed I will go furtherand say that, considered on merely poetic grounds, I believe that Stevens isthe greatest poet America has produced—and, unlike his contemporaries such asAiken, Eliot, and Pound, who…See More

"The best way? A good secular education, in the long term. Simple and obvious, but much easier said than done. Training (and paying) teachers requires money and commitment, for no short term benefit. Plus, children don't plow the fields while…"

Left Wing Atheists

A forum for meaningful dialogue between people affiliated to or supportive of left wing politics....communism/socialism/anarchism/syndicalism etc. It's essentially meant to be an anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist forum.

Hi Eric Tyler Powell and welcome to this great meeting place
where we recognise gods as nothing but fictions inside people's heads, that religion is a fraudulent superstition for controlling people, and that it is tragic and inexcusable that women have been oppressed these last 2000 years.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.
