    Jesus was nothing more than a seditious charlatan. He should have been nailed to the cross much earlier in those days. He had a good run but like all cult leaders his luck ran out. It’s time to grow up America.

    Cigarettes SHOULD be illegal.

    Hi, HI.

    “Living in Zambia, where the latest Demographic Health Survey (DHS) shows that 390 women die in childbirth for every 100,000 births, Mofya’s death was sad yet was nothing new.”

    “In the United States alone, 16.7 childbirth deaths occur per 100,000 births.”

    “Experts have attributed the rising number of American women dying in childbirth to the C-section rates”

    I would like to see c-section death rates compared to c-section death rates and natural birth death rates compared to natural birth death rates. It would change the numbers a little, don’t ya think? Your crooked comparison aside, all you have to do is look at the 2005 World Health Report to see that ninety percent of women who died during child birth did so in a developing country.

    It’s interesting how 90 percent of women who die during labor are from less developed countries where there’s plenty of prayer but no modern medical facilities. Science beats prayer nine times out of ten.

    Islam inhibits learning. So does Christianity to a lesser extent. It isn’t about race; it’s about the greatest con in history — religion.

    You would lose your paycheck; some of those women can leave a club with several thousand dollars a night.

    That’s the difference between atheists and creationists. Unlike creationists, atheists don’t pretend to have all the answers. We don’t pretend to be the center of the universe. We completely understand that humans are beyond miniscule when compared to a universe with 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars — and that’s only our observable universe — words can’t describe how insignificant we are.

    The ONLY true understanding humans have of how we got here has been obtained through science and mathematics. We atheists understand that we’ve evolved to pick coconuts and run from predators, not postulate the origins of the universe and therefore it’s no surprise to us that we can’t and don’t understand everything. But we’re not going to blindly jump on the bandwagon of some ape contrived “explanation” from thousands of years ago — before we even knew that the earth was round and orbited the sun.

    Creationists are pretentious know-it-alls. And they know nothing of true marvel because their eyes are closed.

    Several of those scientists, given all we’ve learned, most likely wouldn’t be believers today. Only nine percent of elite scientists in the United States believe in god; that’s near consensus.

    @BLARMAN40

    Who says that you have to live your life in apathy because you don’t believe in god? Sixty five percent of Japan doesn’t believe in god; are they all apathetic? Just because your belief system makes you feel better, doesn’t make it true. You’ve made several untrue assertions and all you’ve managed to do is display your ignorance. Realize that those are your views perceived through your religious perspective.

    All that we humans know is that we’re an ape species spinning on a rock that’s 4.5 billion years old in an obscure sub-section of an expanding universe that’s 13.8 billion years old. If a book or anyone else tells you that they know more than that, they’re lying to you. As an atheist, I can tell you that I love my family, nature, music and a good meal — no apathy here. Additionally, I feel a poetic sense of joy when I look out into the night sky and know that every atom in my body was created from stars that exploded billions of years ago; I don’t have to believe in fairy tales contrived by apes to appreciate my place in the universe. Maybe you do, but that’s your issue.

    Antonw, don’t forget Steven Weinberg, Albert Einstein, Francis Crick and James Watson.

    You can tell people to take responsibility for their actions until your blue in the face but it’s not going to change genetics or the environment in which people are raised — it’s just not — it’s been tried. Any person, whilst relaxing in their cushy arm chair, could dream up the perfect world but unfortunately, it’s not that simple and humanity is not that black and white. Until earth is inhabited only by perfect humans who can perfectly control themselves, abortion is necessary.

  • July 15, 2013 at 9:57am

    You don’t have to support abortion in a political sense to understand that they’re necessary. Murder, war, famine, plague, abortion — all things I don’t particularly like, however, biologically, they’re all necessary to stymie population growth and help maintain the overall health of our species.

    You don’t have to like it but abortion is necessary.

    She has been a great judge. She hasn’t allowed the defense to railroad her — tough and fair — great job.

    Or carpenters.

    None of you have any proof that any war since WW2 has had any effect in keeping the united states and its freedoms safe — 0. So, I’m not jumping on the nationalist band wagon, thanking every service member for my freedom because quite frankly most of the vets who actually are responsible for my freedom are dead. If you want to know the truth, I pity service members and I certainly don’t hold them in higher regard than doctors or scientists or engineers.

  • July 11, 2013 at 11:02am

    Who cares if he’s a vet. The article should read “The graphic death of a homeless person” instead. Nobody would write “The graphic death of an ex-carpenter.”

    @ MODEM

    Great point.

    @RETIREDUSMC

    First off, the man is a buddhist so he doesn’t believe in god — why would he say under god if he doesn’t believe in god? Secondly, how did he wipe his rear with the flag when he just pledged allegiance to it? Too tolerant? What then would america be protecting? It certainly wouldn’t be his freedom of speech.

    The country that was “protecting” him placed he and his family in an internment camp in 1942 — and he still loves his country, the country he was born in — that speaks volumes.

    Soooo, why is he a punk? Because he doesn’t believe in god? Get over yourself.

    It’s ironic how critical the right wing media is of the “main stream media” for “race baiting” whilst their publishing the same garbage on their own websites. They know very well that their white and/or racist readers are going to racially react to this story. It’s pathetic.
