[ I agree, this says nicely what I was saying before. It sums up what I feel about Dawkins' stance on atheism, in that he uses his public platform to inflame an already touchy subject, providing no solution but rather making glaring problems with religion even more apparent. He would prefer to hold...

Anyway, my point is that it's not difficult to pick holes in religion. So far he's only proven that he's able to make a career out of controversy, much like Lord Monkton. If he wants to investigate conceptions of creation and evolution, then - as a scientist - he should pick a worthy topic for inve...

I saw him on Q&A last night and was pretty disappointed. Admittedly I haven't read any of his books in full, but judging from his comments there he doesn't even acknowledge many people take religion as metaphor. Fair enough if he wants to attack the litteralists - but he also failed to give a de...

Feeling refreshed after shaking the desk out my shoulders at the Mother Nature party down in Canberra. Ready for another week of work- but I can only do this for so long, living life in my spare time. The culture of overtime is such a shame, but you can't legislate against it or price it out of exis...

In a cruel joke played by the universe, today I started work at 8:30am and finished at 7:30pm. I ate lunch at my desk. I am now absolutely rooted and not in the frame of mind to be thinking about this. Today I don't resent that, but only because I was enthusiastic about what I was working on. That's...

/\ Ha ha, totally agree. I knew that list would be difficult to defend. Let me take your question on notice. I'll try to argue a solid justification tonight. Half the reason I posted it was because this stuff is just worth thinking about. But not now, while I'm at work, slaving away! :wink:

Feed my ego, no. Uh huh I come in the hope that someone, anyone, will post something interesting, individual, different, amusing, challenging, intriguing, intelligent, or thought provoking. I also come for teh lulz but even they are pretty thin on the ground. And how's that all working out for you?

It's pretty easy to see a good idea when it is masked in poor language though. Just as it's pretty easy to see when someone has both shitty English and shitty ideas. True, but that's not the point of my post: It was that some people who might enrich this forum don't post because every decent thread...

^^ phew, glad I'm not the only one alive who gets it. When you can't communicate on a purely linguistic level, and body language is frozen behind a keyboard behind a screen behind 4 walls behind everyone else's barriers there are few options. Being a cunt is more often than not borne of sheer frust...

ps: And then there's being a cunt for the sake of it (or because you're in the mood to burn the fuckers to the ground) which is less than inspiring. Contrast that to say, for example, the way Raffi and Haig conduct themselves online...

Have you ever picked up a newspaper, or been watching the news, and been overcome with feelings of outrage, injustice, discrimination, or offense? Have you ever responded verbally to such news? Of course you have. Reading and writing on the Internet is much the same - you're not responding to someo...

Well, seeing as nobody else here has offered a decent criticism of this ridiculous claim, I'll do it myself... [Australia Day is] framed around the ethics of egalitarianism which - while worthy as far as that goes - is in my view a lowly star to which a nation should aim. ...because to suggest egali...

C.s. Lewis once suggested that "...idealists can be disguised as haters and totalitarians, and feel excused by their faith to be cruel to their evil opponents. That's why nice communists killed so many millions. For their own good." Nice quote. Very nice! Only problem... I really don't th...
