Re: American Cancer Society refuses Atheist donation

Unbelievable because it wasn't really true. The ACA didn't turn down the money because it came from an atheist group. They had changed how they organised their national partnership scheme, and thus what status the atheist group would receive for the donation and didn't explain that properly to the a...

Re: Congrats on the convention!

Amazing weekend! Met great people, speakers and attendees alike. Thanks to all the organisers and every one who made it such an experience. Even Hamza the islamist and his gang added to it. What he added was glibness but still...

Re: Listowel writers week with Richard Dawkins June2011

Myers just rambled on not letting Dawkins talk and only asked even slightly challenging questions in the last five minutes. Dawkins said he only read Myers woeful article on evolution (below) after the interview which is a shame. I suppose at least Myers wasn't barracking him... http://www.independe...

Re: Listowel writers week with Richard Dawkins June2011

It'll degenerate into Dawkins' last Late Late appearance if Myers starts that "evolution is faith" bull he was rambling on about a few months ago. Show of hands, who believes in Darwin?

Re: If it turns outGod exists, what will you say when you meet ?

I think there is a lot of anger there. In a sense, yes. If god does exist, what the fuck is it up to?! What if your god turns out to not exist but a different, equally judgemental god exists, what would you say? Scania, you started this thread with a question, which I answered. I'd very much apprec...

Re: jury duty

JD, I'd really appreciate it if you could give us a rundown on your experiences with this. We've been looking at the whole issue of court oaths and I'd be interested to see how it works out for you.

Re: If it turns outGod exists, what will you say when you meet ?

I think there is a lot of anger there. In a sense, yes. If god does exist, what the fuck is it up to?! There is a little irritation at the question too though. The "what if you're wrong" type question is a pretty old one to all but the newest atheists and isn't much more than a source of humour now...

Re: Your views on a possible Atheist Ireland event.

what were the original two sides of the poll question do people here see scientific and (rational ) ethical arguments as equally valid? There weren't really two sides to it. It was more just a canvas of thoughts, leanings and feelings on the issue of having the meeting. It cetainly wouldn't be a po...

I'd have to ask Ganesha for my banannas back. I got eff all for that donation.
