Re: "Atheists" discussion (#774)

You are probably right on a lot of your points, but factual accuracy is not the sole purpose of discussion. At some point, the unpleasantness of my treatment by someone outweighs the knowledge I might gain by listening to them. (a whole bunch of stuff) . . . and we've reached that point. Have a nic...

Re: "Atheists" discussion (#774)

Just what is the objectionable "manner" in which a "new atheist" holds her beliefs? Can you describe it? I can. They are unpleasant people to converse with. Well, perhaps you can, but what you've given is not a description of the objectionable manner in which a "new atheist...

Also, the alt text is amazing. Probably the best quote I've heard so far this year... nay, it's the best quote I've heard this entire decade!

Re: "Trimester" discussion

The title to me suggests she just asked why abortions after the first trimester are frowned upon (an arbitrary date). I suspect nobody brought it up because we don't need a "pro-life vs. pro-choice" debate in this thread. I was a little confused by the "title/alt" text. Wouldn't...

Lewton - not a good way to react. If someone is upset by a theme, accept it. You don't know what motivates people's personal feelings, so make no assumptions. 9-11 caused trauma to many Americans, who had never really looked at real life outside US borders. Over a century, US governments followed s...
