jay H commented on Hiram's blog post Reasonings About Sam Harris’ The Moral Landscape
"Morality is an interesting thing. Most of us are born with moral sense, though it can be modified by culture. Among other things it is not, it cannot be fully logical. It may be easy to argue logically that murder is wrong, that torture is wrong,…"

jay H replied to Matt Gabe's discussion Why some atheists are depressed
"To me, aging is far more frightening than death. To be less healthy and in more pain, to lose the ability to support oneself and eventually the ability to care for yourself. Eventually you become (physically and sometimes mentally) like a clock…"

"The word Islamophobia is used to shut down debate.But, though there are plenty of relatively peaceful Muslims, there is a huge number of obscene atrocities actively associated with Muslim factions, not just ISIS, not just Hamas, not just Saudi…"

"France may not have blasphemy laws, but they DO have a bunch of 'hate speech' rules which amount to much the same thing (depending on the mood of the government)."

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.

We live in a society of generalities: not all cyclists are rednecks and vice versa. No offense intended.

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.
