"1) By big, I mean invasively large. Far beyond providing the structure for a system of law, but instead through literally tens of thousands of laws endeavoring to control thousands of details, including thousands of aspects of people's private…"

jay H replied to Adam's discussion Political Ideology
"At least in the US, the terms 'conservative' and 'liberal' have become so bastardized that it's wildly meaningless to associate with either one. I'm a 'classic liberal' (what liberals were in the late 19th…"

jay H replied to roland707's discussion Are known atheists more likely to be convicted of violent crimes?
"There is a difference between what a person might put down on a survey ('atheist') and what they would say about themselves when admitted to prison (many would be much more likely to claim some religion). That in itself could skew the…"

"Apparently God was not interested in helping the Spanish priest, or the hundreds of black people. Maybe God does not like black people."

"Interesting thought. Though costly to implement, and maintain (someone has to pay the electric bill), it would be interesting in good weather. Alas the 'EMF is evil' luddites would be torn (hehehehe)"

"I'd come up with a tagline NOT specifically targeted at this Jesus stuff. Something you believe as a humanist, as a person. Perhaps a personal philosophy. You're not confronting their silly belief, nor dragging theism/atheism into it, but…"

jay H commented on Amanda Ashcraft's blog post What's Atheism Got To Do With It? Why Automatically Tagging Philosophy To Atheism Is A Bad Idea.
"Your point, as I see it is that atheism is just one component of a person. There is no automatic set of other political or social beliefs that atheist automatically have. I agree with that. I know of atheists who are opposed to abortion (except for…"

"It was this 1991 version http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102722/ Actually it contained more naked people than most any other film, but was not at all sexual. The nudity superbly was woven in to create an unearthly, magical aura to the setting. It was…"

jay H commented on Rick Springfield's blog post Why satan have influence in religions
"Monotheism has a major flaw, as you point out, because you can't just blame other gods for bad things happening. The Satan character developed very slowly over the course of the Bible, many feel he was the voice of the serpent (though Genesis…"

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
