    I don’t agree of most of Dawkin’s opinions. He’s a cold Atheist, but an honest one. He doesn’t back down, he defends his views, and refrains from the accusations and threats so many other celebrity Atheists resort to when they can’t argue their point.

    No, I don’t agree with his views on Israel. It’s bad that insinuates that Israel shouldn’t exist as a nation; but lying about his views is far worse. Over all, however, I would prefer that he stick to his area of expertise, which (if my understanding is correct) is not global or religious history

    He’s just saying he approves of neither. Right or wrong, at least he is honest about where he stands on the issue, unlike another celebrity who is fond of spewing lies and mixed messages (cough cough, Obama, cough, sniffle)

    This is one of those rare cases where I can see Dawkins logic. The only thing I really admire about him is that he is not lukewarm. He is hot or cold (mostly cold), he makes it clear where he stands.

    I was repeatedly raped as a child. The teenager who did it didn’t inflict injury or give me a disease (thank G-d). He could have, and it most definitely would have made it much worse; but I would rather have had the third option that he simply have left me alone. I still don’t trust myself to not attempt to kill him should I see him again. Mild rape is bad, hard rape is worse; I would rather not experience either because they are both hideous and scarring.

    Dawkin’s logic can be understood once in while.

    It is well within the realm of possibility that the government is detaining cartel members, terrorists, or Guantanamo Bay prisoners in this “empty” prison. However, I’m going to err on the side of boring and say that most likely it is unionized corrections officers finishing out their contracts and securing the facility during the final inspections, inventory, and audit. Our government may have a history of corruption, underhanded policies, and shady secrets, but it has a much bigger reputation for bureaucracy.

    I thought part of the reason for publishing in scientific journals was to give other qualified scientists the knowlege and opportunity to either validate or disprove the first’s findings.

    It’s probably because their cheese is mostly oil and has almost no milk or moisture in it.

    It’s not the air content. The reason Wally’s “ice cream” sandwiches, and a number of other low end frozen treats don’t melt is that they have stabilizers in them so they will hold their shape even if they get somewhat warm for a while. It’s not new. Chocolate chips, and Hershey’s chocolate Kisses are also held together with stabilizers. Yeah. It’s gross.

    Excuse me. Idiots, not jerks. Join me in the Idiot club.

    I just “thumbs downed” your statements because you brought up Glenn Beck for no apparent reason, and because you think people who “thumbs down” your statements are jerks.

    Anyone else want to join the Jerk Club?

    Thank you Margrt Sanger for that less than enlightening diatribe against the virtues of humanity and compassion. If only everone was a much of a ludite as you, then we would all have equally miserable, butal, and short lives.

    If I, as a parent, spoke to my own minor children about sex, the way she spoke to that girl, I could be prosecuted for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    I think I’ll keep my KJV. I’ve read it all my life and I just can’t wrap my head around other translations. It feels like I’m being spoken down too or that I am reading someone else’ take on the scriptures.

    I suspect it was that Mr. Obama simply had no planned speech and wanted it to be a relatively private event. Of course, seeing as how his administration has repeatedly violated American trust, it has become next to impossible to give the Obamas he benefit of the doubt.

    I’m taking a shot in the dark here, but what i think has been going on is not the Blaze, and by extension, Glenn Beck, fearing and silencing dissent. With regard to border relief, there have been some good arguments both for and against whether illegal aliens should be the recipients of private charity. Some of the related commentary was downright enlightening. Sadly, however, most of the comments were people vomiting insults and accusations, straying off the topic, or the same people recycling the same arguments over and over and over. By and large, the conversation was not moving forward. It had become polarized and moderation was needed faster than the moderators could moderate.

    I was disappointed at the shutdown of the comments section, but I blame the commenters, not the moderators this time.

    Can you elaborate on what gaps the home school kids have in science, and what they are coming with. If their gals are in evolutionary theory and man made climate change, that’s actually understandable. If they are coming to you with hard sciences: physics and chemistry, that would make sense too. Most homeschooling families prefer to stick with science that is provable, solid, and pertinent to thir own fields of study.

    I suppose it could be construed that the Blaze, and by extension, Glenn Beck, would silence dissent on the matter of border relief. At first I felt disappointed that the comments were shut off, but i suspect it has something to do with the fact that the discussion had dissolved into mostly hurling insults, accusations, and generally getting off the topic, instead of a constructive and civilized debate on whether illegal immigrants should be the recipients of private charity or not. A number of science websites tend to shut down the commentary when it comes to evolutionary science for similar reasons.

    Off the subject, interesting screen name. A character whose actions tends to be in line with his words. Generally interested in freedom, completely devoted to his lover and friends. Prone to excessive monologue-ing.

    Interestingly enough, that retoric doesn’t scare me anymore. Call it exposure therapy, but I’ve been hearing Islamist threats so long, that while I am certain they are a threat, it’s like car accidents in the news. Barely news worthy and so common that we just accept the risk as part of our every day life. Take reasonable precautions, but get on with life. There is only so much that can be done to stop bad people from doing bad things.

    I find the fastest lines and easiest checkout when I am not in a hurry. No, really. Litererally, when I am concerned and afraid of getting held up, that’s when the crazy coupon ladies show up. The force is with the crazies, when I am on the clock; but when I am relaxed and not in particular hurry to get somewhere, when I am not afraid of being late, the lines just open up. I try very hard to only shop when there is nothing else on the schedule.

    Take a pill? They call that caution?

    It feels like “take a pill” is the answer to everything these days. In pain? Take a pill. Have trouble in school? Take a pill. Feel sad? Take a pill. Want to avoid disease? Take a pill. What happend good judgment, making healthy choices, and exersizing self restraint? I know sometimes a pill is genuinly needed, but we are taking too many pills and not standing back to think about why we take the pills and what we could change so that drugs don’t have to be the answer.

    While we are conditioned to expect excessive force from law enforcement, this is over the top even for what we are expected to expect. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say there is more than a child pornagraphy charge going on here. They are lying for some reason, probably to prevent too much questioning from civilians and new agencies. We are expected to believe that all this is for a pervert, but they may be factoring in potential problems from a crime syndicate in the area.
