Stephen J. Rush commented on Johnny's blog post I read a cute religious book today that tried to logically validate religion
"Some Christians do study philosophy. And formal logic. And propaganda. The most famous organized group of such are the Jesuits, AKA the Vatican Intelligence Agency. Don't get roped into a logic-match with a Jesuit priest unless you're damn…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Athianarchist's discussion Atheists are the Most Hated Minority in America
"In the United States, atheism is still associated with the last existential threat the country faced, the late, unlamented Soviet Union. Sorry GOP, but Islamofacism doesn't qualify. Yet. With the collapse of the USSR, there is less hate, but…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Kelsey's discussion Explaining evolution to a creationist.
"There's the peppered moth case. A species of moth in England was the same color as the bark of the treese thereabouts. In the nineteenth century, as coal smoke made the trees darker, the moths gradually turned black. The smoke wasn't…"

Stephen J. Rush commented on Tak G.'s blog post Vitamin G
"Railroad ties?? The railroad ties I've seen are eight-by-eight timbers about six feet long. I can't imagine a man strong enough to swing one as a weapon. Assholes like Beck get away with it because nontheists, defined by an absence,…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Gaz Sharman's discussion Purging society of the religious
"Nuclear weapons are expensive and they pollute the air if you use them. Dump the Christian fundies and the Muslim fundies on the same island, and make sure that every one of them has a sword. As for medical tech, let 'em pray."

Stephen J. Rush replied to FreeThinker's discussion Leviticus chapter 18 - abominations
"While adultery, incest and beastiality are generally frowned upon in Western society, Leviticus 18 also proscribes a bunch of "WTF?" items, like wearing mixed-fiber clothes, eating shellfish, working on the Sabbath, and keeping an animal…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Bob Stewart's discussion A challange for the 21st century and beyond
"A faith is a belief held without rational basis. Faith is, by definition, utterly impervious to reason. It's even strongly resistant to physical counterexamples ("We prayed around the clock for Daddy, but the cancer just ate him alive. God…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Andrew Mylko's discussion God 4 Nursing Students
"I haven't heard the "AIDS is Gawd's punishment" BS for a while, since the obvious counter got around: God must really like lesbians. Exclusively homosexual women contract STDs less frequently than heterosexual women (and much…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to dromedaryhump's discussion My three favorite fun questions to pose to fundie theists
"The Young Earth idiots have a standard reply to that: Light in transit from distant sources, fossils in the ground, flipped strata, radioisotope ratios... were all created by God to Test Our Faith. The reply to that is Last Tuesdayism (Why 6000…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to dromedaryhump's discussion My three favorite fun questions to pose to fundie theists
"The nearest thing to a standard fundiewhackazoid reply to 2 and 3 is that diseases, natural disasters and even death itself are all punishments for the Original Sin. You can then point out that pre-Fall Adam was an amoral psychopath. He didn't…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Doug's discussion 6,000 year old earth :-)
"My favorite answer to the YEC idiots is Last Tuesdayism. I don't think I've seen anyone take it a step farther: If God is lying to us to Test Our Faith, how do you know which is the lie: the sum of astronomy, geology, paleontology... or…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Jennifer E.'s discussion Losing my Confrontation Virginity
"I've encountered that "I can't believe you don't believe!" douchebaggery before. The easiest response is just to turn it around and throw it back in the religiot's face. Point out that if he's walking down a…"

Stephen J. Rush replied to Jennifer E.'s discussion Losing my Confrontation Virginity
"Less often quoted than the First Amendment, but actually written earlier, in Article VI:"The Senators ane Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the…"
