"I haven't seen the image on stained glass. However, Hitchens's visage did appear on a grilled cheese sandwich I made yesterday, and in a water stain down in my recently flooded basement. Miracles, of course."

LaPlace replied to Hugh Kramer's discussion "God blocked the bullet" says Florida School Superintendant
"If God can and will intervene to mitigate the damage done by the actions of sick humans, why isn't He doing more? The blame for every maniac's bullet that doesn't miss should be on His head."

Atheist Recovery From Alcohol And Drug Addiction

Anyone who's ever had occasion to attend a 12-step meeting (polite invitation from the local magistrate, polite eviction notice from local spouse, etc.) will have run face first into "the God thing" there. It is possible to take advantage of 12-step principles without the God concept or any other mystical belief system. There is an essay on one atheist addict's experience here: …See More

LaPlace commented on Ajita Kamal's group Naturalism

LaPlace replied to Christine Vyrnon's discussion What are YOU going to do about the Neo-Theocracy movement?
"I won't try to define Truth, but I'll say this about it. The Truth doesn't give a crap what you believe. And the people who appear to be obsessed with what you believe? Clearly they haven't been hanging out much with the Truth."

LaPlace commented on David S.'s blog post Atheist Zen?
"Siddhartha was a man who was, no doubt, like all others in that he was in some ways of his time. He appears to have had trouble with the idea of female monks, for example. But he was a radical empiricist, and he seems to have championed this as much…"
