"I have not felt dizzy by indeterminancy.  Perhaps some are.  But as we are the products of our evolution in the particular reality we live in, we must be somewhat well-adapted. "

Marvin McConoughey replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Huckabee on the contraception issue
"Mr. Huckabee's views are of another generation.  Women today tend to make up their own minds, regardless of formal religious allegiances.  I doubt that he offers his party a winning formula."

"Ted, I've never watched Duck Dynasty, and even have no idea of what it is. Having no TV does that to one."

Marvin McConoughey replied to Sentient Biped's discussion Mosque office torched in Corvallis Oregon in the group Atheist News
"I have lived in and near Corvallis for many years. The mosque burning is an anomaly and not reflective of much except one young man and his hatred. The town is now strongly liberal but still very much a college town. The crime rate is generally low…"

Marvin McConoughey replied to Myke Sorrel's discussion Why believe in God? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"My understanding of the word "atheist" is that it is, as with many words, used for multiple meanings. Some distinguish atheists as having two sub-groups: Those who actively believe that there is no god, and those who believe that no…"

Hi Marvin. We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

This great place has thousands of bright people like yourself who recognise religion for the superstitious force and farce that it is---and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.
