"Most people would not know what this means. The humming and clacking sounds might get a few quizzical looks, though."

"Jo, dressing for a wedding is easy. You just cut the blue wire, not the red wire. Oh, wait, that's defusing bombs. Um, put on clean clothes and comb your hair? There's probably more to it than that, isn't there?"

"Well, drinking buddy calculations aside, one thing society is super bad at is matching people to the job they are best suited to. I'd guess something like 90% of us are square pegs in round holes. If we spent a little more collective effort…"

"Although people will likely give you stares if you dare to say "I think in solenoids" in public. :-)"

Jo Jerome replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"There are even a few atheists that understand asperger's is not an intellectual retardation disability. Go figure. Yes, thank you. Social Retardation does not equal Mental Retardation. I can reverse-engineer my starter switch and repair it…"

Jo Jerome replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"Also being Aspie, I wouldn't say 'flawed' either way. Like you say Jason, I can see an obvious evolutionary advantage to instinctively assuming an actor behind every strange sight, sound, rumble of the trees. Fast forward to today…"

Jason Spicer replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"Hmm. I see your point, but I still don't think "flawed" applies to the neurotypical case. When you say "results", you're loading that with a particular meaning--scientific accuracy. But clearly, the typical hyperactive…"

Denis Robert replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"Whether the socially-skewed causality engine of NTs created an evolutionary advantage for the human species has no relevance as to whether or not it is flawed. The NT causality engine IS flawed, in that it produces nearly as many false positives and…"

Jared Lardo replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"How I read it, it was clearly written by someone thoroughly biased but still got to the point without covering it in the thick slathering of opinion that I'm accustomed to having to dig through. That point--that people see gods in things…"

"I'm just replacing the previous quote of yours with the new one. I guess it's really the 'profile quote'."

"Well, that doesn't sound very permanent, Glenn. But I'm flattered."

Glenn Sogge replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
""Why" is the single most damaging word in human discourse because of its unnoticed implications. "How" is always applicable. I think I will have to change my FB permanent saying again, Jason. Maybe put it out as a…"

Jason Spicer replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"Denis, I wouldn't look at the non-Aspberger's brain as having a flawed causality engine. There is an evolutionary advantage to seeing intent behind phenomena, because there very well could be, and where there's intent, there's a…"

Denis Robert replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"What I took from the article is that NTs (neurotypicals) have a flawed causality engine, which is distorted by their need to socially interact. Aspies have a better causality engine, one that is shared by Atheists. NT Atheists come to their…"

Jason Spicer replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"That's the standard NOMA dodge. It's an incorrect classification because of the above-mentioned confusion inherent in the word "why". Scientists have no problem examining questions of "why" when there is, in fact, an…"

Jim DePaulo replied to Zellain's discussion Article on Scientific American website about Asperger's manages to attack atheists. in the group Atheist News
"I heard a comment (can't remember who or where) to the effect. It's sciences task to answer the question "how", theologians and metaphysicians can muddle about with the "why"."

Greetings, Meghan! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since June 2010. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
