Ryan Goldblatt replied to RogAgainst's discussion Atheists and PZ's blog get stabbed in this LA times article in the group Pharyngula
"Well it's all so damn obvious - when in doubt play the man not the ball - that's all these people do. They know they can't argue with the logic so it's much easier to attach the person."

Ryan Goldblatt replied to Dr. Terence Meaden's discussion When is a scientist not a true scientist? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Well, I read a book by John Gribbon - "The fellowship." A brilliant, brilliant book. It was on the founding of the Royal. I'm not a scientist and my maths just plain sucks but he writes well so while it was all a tad above me I still…"

Ryan Goldblatt replied to Ariel's discussion Reccomended SFF Authors/Books? in the group Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists
"A few other authors worthy of mention: Really, really surprised no one has mentioned Zelazny. "Lord of light." arguably the best sci fi book ever written. Another good author though not in his class is David Brin who having worked for…"

Ryan Goldblatt replied to Jeffrey's discussion Favorite poem or poet in the group Nexus Book Club
"There are a few poets I really like but the one that resonates the most with me it is a poem in A.E Housmans "A Shropshire Lad." I don't think anyone has ever managed to put mortality quite so beautifully. Also my favourite author…"

Ryan Goldblatt replied to Brad Feaker's discussion An intersting idea from physicist Lee Smolin in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"It's difficult for me to respond not being a scientist. Some of the stuff that supposedly top notch scientists peddle nowadays sounds like bad fantasy or sci fi and they really have no proof. Seems they start with an idea now and then try and…"

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

"I, too, find that disconnect extremely disturbing. Theists regularly claim that their religions provide them with an objective moral base... but I've yet to see (or hear) any of them really describe, in detail, what that base entails and how it…"

Thoughts on the "Ryan" report in Ireland...

One thing that never fails to horrify me is the capacity for good Christian god fearing folk to excuse the abhorrent behavior of their own. We (in South Africa,) recently had a Sexpo, basically a collection of stalls selling sex toys... you get the idea.

Ryan Goldblatt replied to Stephen Goldin's discussion Great Lesser-Known Genre Movies in the group Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists
"I'd go with Gattaca - possibly the best sci fi movie I've seen, certainly the most intelligent and thought provoking. Brilliant. Blade Runner is the other one which is possibly my favourite movie. Awesome, dark, broody. Lovely stuff..."
