"At heart Hitchens was an unrelieved misanthrope. He exhibited a deeper familiarity with human depravity than any of other anti-religionist authors, whose faith in the perfectibility of mankind is almost comically touching. The question, given his…"

"Sidney, the first Sidney I met was a boy I knew while in grade school. Years passed before I met another; she was a young woman about 20. You are perhaps the fourth in my 82 years. I'm curious. Why the friend request?"

"Joan, why should anyone care about other people’s illusions? And what method does Dennett use to determine that complete strangers, people he, you and me, don’t know have dedicated their lives to an illusion; an illusion about what?"

A Tale of Two Friendly Enemies

During the “Cold War” between The United States and the Soviet Union, which went on roughly for 45 years (from 1945 to 1989), they were not technically enemies. Not in the military sense.

Sidney, the first Sidney I met was a boy I knew while in grade school. Years passed before I met another; she was a young woman about 20. You are perhaps the fourth in my 82 years.

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Atheist TeachersLINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANSPhilosophy (we have lots of philosophy groups), Music LoversSound Advice and Classical Masters.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.
