"Some would also make comparison to the civil rights era, where outspoken people like Malcom X seemed to actually make MLK more acceptable to the public."

"Jerry Coyne talks about this from time to time http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/accommodatheism-i-lets-all-stop-going-after-the-low-hanging-believers/ I basically never attack believers unless they harass me, but I'm not…"

"I find this nutso, even though it's a common thread in some political circles. Jealousy is 100% in the mind of the jealous, it's not up to others to hide their wealth so people 'wont' feel bad'. Seriously, though I am…"

"While this is better than most apologetic arguments for God(s), you still have a problem with (2). It's merely an assumption that a being cannot exist outside time and space. (All the 'logical' arguments for God(s) always have at…"

"Democracy and freedom are not the same thing.  Often democracy can be anti-freedom as the dominant group (left or right) attempts to push their values onto others. Real freedom results only with strong restrictions on what the government (even…"

"It's sort of disturbing that two of the biggest ever vulnerabilities recently have come from the open source side. In theory more eyes looking at it should be good... how the hell did these go for so long?"

jay H replied to Freethinker31's discussion Family Values
"That's rape. that's a separate issue. The point is: even AFTER sex, a woman has a time frame to change her mind, and this is protected by law as well as feminism. A man gets no such opt out. Here's a bizarre but true incident. A…"

jay H replied to Travis Hedglin's discussion Whats the deal with feminism?
"There is some wackaloonery in feminism (or call themselves feminists), though I suspect  these are the outliers. One area that this is common is to confuse equal rights with the belief that men and women are essentially identical. (This may be…"

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.
