Go to: Bill O'Reilly vs. Atheist Richard Dawkins

mdowe's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by mdowe

I don't know why Prof. Dawkins would concede to sit in the same (virtual) room with Mr. O'Reilly once, much less twice, but Richard always manages to make clear points in short sound-bites, even as his interviewer fills up most of the time with the sound of his own voice. The clips come across as heavily edited, and I find myself wondering what Prof. Dawkins said that Fox cut out (if anything).

... atheism is one of the fastest-growing movements in the 18-25 age group ...


It is heartening to see that sometimes kids really can turn out to be much smarter than their parents.

Go to: A committee against Islamophobia

This is pretty much the same kind of intimidation a disturbing percentage of Muslims threaten to inflict on everyone else (albeit with slightly different motivations). It is sad to see, but it was predictable.

Go to: Counting Coup - PZ Myers at the Secular Student Alliance Conference 2009

I was just about to send off an email this morning when I received the forumadmin@ spam, and then thought about it for second, and refrained. The nasty thing about feature-packed websites is that they are extremely difficult to secure (actually, probably impossible to secure with the tools that out there right now).

Love PZ's talk. I notice he is always very careful not to incite the godless hordes to behave in a 'less than moral' way. Good show PZ.
