"I did watch the clip, and appreciated the link, but if I had first seen the URL for a transcript I would have taken that.  I wonder if our group tends that way more than, say, normal people.  Anyway, thanks for the information."
Jerry Wesner replied to Dyslexic's DOG's discussion Atheists are more special than they realize.
"I question one statement made here -- and only one.  I don't think we who question dogma, and eventually can't believe it, are overall more intelligent than all believers.  People pigeonhole their beliefs; it's how we can…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Asa Watcher's discussion Do you suffer from hopolophobia?
"I checked "atheophobia" in, a multiple dictionary, and found it only in Wiktionary and Urban Dictionary.  I guess the more traditional sources were waiting for Loren to become better recognized as a source.…"

Jerry Wesner replied to jlaz's discussion Not a big fan of time travel plots in fiction
"When used as a literary technique, I can enjoy time travel.  I've read a number of fairly light-hearted science fiction stories like that.  But considering it as a real possibility doesn't work for me, so I ignore it and go on to…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Matt Gabe's discussion Atheists who preach religion and theists who preach atheism
"Matt, you might try thinking more and saying less.  When you write something, go through and edit until it's simple and clear.  If you can't achieve that, maybe it didn't need saying."

Jerry Wesner replied to eric stone's discussion Anyone know when and where Teddy Roosevelt called Tom Paine dirty (or filthy) little atheist?
"Before the Big Bang theory it was almost impossible to support the position of atheist, because there had to be some force to initiate the universe.  So deists said that god started it and went on an extended vacation.  For all practical…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Shashwat Singh Pokharel's discussion Why is cigarette not banned by the FDA even though strong link between COPD and smoking has already been attributed with evidence?

Jerry Wesner replied to Atheist in FundyLand's discussion Proselytizing duo ignore sign posted on my front door
"Atheist in Fundyland, I wish I lived near enough to be a friend.  You sound like a delightful person plagued with an awful condition, and a plague on anybody who would disturb your much-needed rest.  Your sign couldn't be clearer or…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Daniel W's discussion Barking up the Wrong Tree
"Golly, Daniel.  How could you pass up an opportunity like this?  Unless, of course, you need to wash your hair or trim your toenails.  I mean, how could you doubt that this presentation has all the answers?  Where is your faith?…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Shashwat Singh Pokharel's discussion Does Richard Dawkins overstate in his book The God Delusion that "Religion is the sole cause of conflict in the world"? What are your opinions?

Hi to Jerry Mesner in Albuquerque. Welcome to this great meeting place with its rational people who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

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

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
