Go to: Atheists Get Their "Brokeback Mountain" Moment in the New Sundance Film, "The Ledge"

Looks interesting. I'll give it a chance. I know that once it's out one of the first things I'll hear is "He had a right to kill his wife or the guy! They were adulterers!"
If that's the case, lets put Newt Gingrich at the front of the firing line.

Go to: Chris Mooney - Accommodationism and the Psychology of Belief

remijdio's Avatar Jump to comment 8 by remijdio

Is there a transcribed version anywhere? Seems a bit ironic that he's involved with the templeton foundation even though he's written a book entitled "The Republican War on Science" To me, Mooney's accommodationism seems like he's saying "Don't question the masses, because it offends them." but the masses blatantly offend and threaten us all the time.

Go to: My Spiritual Journey

This seems to be an article in saw-tooth format. He went out of his way to represent his faith and then define it as a way to find truth. Truth obviously means something different in his book and if it weren't for the fact that he seems to cherish secularism I would probably just not vote at all.

Go to: Lord Patten attacks 'intolerant' secularists

"Their books would be a lot shorter if they couldn't refer to the Spanish Inquisition, but it is them who tend to have a level of Castillian intolerance about them."

He's right you know. The God Delusion would be a lot shorter without the paragraph reading:

"In this book, I have deliberately refrained from detailing the horrors of the Crusades, the conquistadores or Spanish Inquisition. Cruel and evil people can be found in every century and of every persuasion."

A whole two sentences shorter to be exact.
