Travis Hedglin commented on Dave Godfrey's blog post When is an atheist not an atheist?
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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.…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Bible Museum coming to DC
"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 The bible does belong in a museum, but as another outdated and impotent load of crap from our ancestors, right beside all the other ancient writings full of superstitions…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Is it racist to call a football team the Washington Redskins?
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"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.…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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…"

"True, it would still be an egregious violation of the infants will."

"I doubt they had that much pull, however, since the release of the study the number of neonatal circumcisions went from over 37,000 to barely over 13,000."

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"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…"

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"Show a single instance, in this entire interaction, where someone specifically disparages Jews. If you can't, put your damned persecution complex away, we don't need it for the game we are playing."

Travis Hedglin replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"In that case, you aren't a Muslim, so you have no right to judge them. You aren't a Nazi, so you have no right to judge them. Your logic is appalling."

Yeah man, if declared atheist here in Brazil is the same thing as living in "hell" (laughs).

Welcome, Travis! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Loners and Introverts.

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

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. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me

Hi Travis
Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where pure common sense is enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers like you and us.
We invite you to join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3600+ members.
