"I am unsurprised at the mental gymnastics this fellow went through to trivialize atheism, and it only shows what a threat it must be if it forced him to write such a piece. If logic and reason were a woman, she could take him to court for rape for…"
"I would defend to the death his right to hold an opinion contrary to my own, but would equally defend the right of the infant not to have circumcision thrust upon him unwillingly. The problem here isn't that he holds that opinion, but that…"
"While it is true that most conceptualizations of god are logically inconsistent, therefore impossible. I feel it impertinent to assume that every conceptualization of god, ever, is equally inconsistent. There are people to this day that worship the…"
"I would not consider this a barrage of insults, far from it in fact. As far as the tone of the piece, I can hardly be faulted for losing some patience with someone willfully choosing to wear the blinders of culture and refusing to listen to reason.…"
"We need another creationist museum about like we need cancerous anal seepage. The bible does belong in a museum, but as another outdated and impotent load of crap from our ancestors, right beside all the other ancient writings full of superstitions…"
"Yes, it is. It is only a debate because Native Americans are poorly represented in the population, and in civil rights groups. If it had been a team named the West Virginian Negroes instead, I seriously doubt this would even still be having this…"
"It isn't ridiculous at all. When someone, anyone, presents and idea; we choose whether to accept it or not based on evidence and logic. If you told me you had a cat, and presented evidence that you had one, I would be obliged to believe you.…"
"A: Yes, you certainly do have a name, and I was referring to you.
B: It sure is nice that you like the outcome of the unnecessary medical modification done to your penis, but realize that not everybody feels this way. MANY men wish the decision had…"
"Promising to hear, I tried to pick something that sounded similarly insane to me, but also semi-realistic. I could actually see some weird cult doing it. I would have brought up female genital mutilation, but I was afraid he might support it for the…"
"Yeah, I am noticing that now, I forgot to mention the shock. Everybody thinks it is ok because the babies don't cry, but that is because they can't. They are in shock, they feel every single bit of it because less than half are…"
"Perhaps a hypothetical scenario would help you to see our point more clearly.
Let us say a group of religious people decided to start cutting off boys nipples at birth, and every year a few died as a result of this practice. Further, you find out…"
"You are the one that implied that we could or should not judge what Jews do, because we are not Jews. I merely pointed out that the logic in question does not fly in any setting. The arguments thus far supplied have not been met with reasoned…"
After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account.
