Re: Muslims engage with PZ Myers and Dawkins at conference

Hi all, For those who missed the Atheists Conference last week, a group of Muslims attended the event... Wow. Why not just be honest and say who you are? Why lie about being an atheist?

Re: Congrats on the convention!

Oh - as far as "idiot" goes, my recollection is that Richard said he did not go around calling people idiotic morons, even if their ideas were idiotic. Later on Rebecca mentioned she would love that phrase as a ringtone for her phone, prompting Richard to repeat "idiotic moron" a few times for recor...

Re: Congrats on the convention!

I heard Rebecca and Richard called some Islamists idiots, or something of that sentiment. Can someone clarify what happened?

A Worthless and Dangerous Report

If you haven't read this yet, them you really should. Miranda Celeste Hale has written a detailed analysis of the “The Causes and Context of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Catholic Priests in the United States, 1950-2010” Report. It is pretty awful stuff. The report, funded substantially by - wait for it...

Re: Listowel writers week with Richard Dawkins June2011

Oh well, there goes a potentially interesting conversation. Myers isn't stupid by a long shot; but his column is all about generating calculated maximum controversy usually by being obnoxious or offensive or just plain ignorant. However, being controversial isn't the same as being interesting. He's ...
