Lets be fair and reasoned on Pat Robertson

Yes, he made what could be considered one of the dumbest, most poorly timed statements yet. But those are just words, honestly. What is Pat Robertson doing about Haiti's recent disaster:



"Dr. Robertson’s compassion for the people of Haiti is clear. He called for prayer for them. His humanitarian arm has been working to help thousands of people in Haiti over the last year, and they are currently launching a major relief and recovery effort to help the victims of this disaster. They… Continue

Fundamentalist christians want us to burn. Be burned alive.

For "rejecting the free gift of Jesus" they want us burned alive forever. How scary is that? Does that not qualify as a hate crime, and why are pastors not called out for hate speech?

Pastoral spiritual guidance is like taking health advice from the CEO of a tobacco company.

A blog post about the incredibly strong motivation so called "spiritual leaders" have to sell you the goods.

"love me or go to hell"

In this blog post, I propose that its actually impossible to love someone if there is an external threat that exists to compel you to love the person (IE they will kill you, or you will die, or your kids will die, or you wont get the 5 million dollar prize at the end of the show etc.)

Ray comfort "apologizes" then thanks atheists for his fame ? Did I read that right?

The latest Ray Comfort video here seems like Ray Comfort and his idiot sidekick Kirk Cameron are basically telling atheists that his obvious lie and pretend apology about the banana thing and subsequent attention from Atheists debunking it has made them rich and famous. Seriously, is that supposed to be a "gotcha, atheists! We used trickery and managed to fool you into making our book a number 1 best seller, outselling even your hero Dawkins book all thanks to lying, then watching you all… Continue

My story that gives an idea how it all started, and how its going to end for us.

Transhumanism kind of to an extreme, an incredible reduction in footprint, and extreme efficiency. Its an idea anyway, and incidentally explains dark matter.

Hyperbole is the enemy of effective communication

If our goal is to achieve peace and prosperity for all humans, to eliminate poverty and advance science and health for all, advancing our species to higher plains of understanding...



One of our greatest enemies is our own tendency towards hyperbole. "Cheney is Satan" is equally as unhelpful as "Obama is Hitler" to the cause of either the "left" or the "right".



I need to avoid it myself, I tend to make idiotic, emotionally charged statements like "religious people love to… Continue

Bore holes and the skin of an apple.

http://secondskeleton.com/2009/11/deepest-bore-hole-and-skin-of-apple.html

My blog on the ridiculously unimaginable scales of things, and how ridiculous it is to believe our tiny gods had anything to do with anything much less creating it all.
