Go to: Workers' Religious Freedom vs. Patients' Rights

"...and because it would... define abortion in a federal regulation as anything that affects a fertilized egg..."

Sounds like the old life begins at conception argument to me. I would always like to tell the religious that you don't want to use this argument. Since this means that every miscarriage or, for that matter, every fertilized egg that failed to implant is an abortion. Therefore you worship the greatest abortionist and murderer in the universe since the amount of pregnancies that fail to come to term are far greater than all the abortions humans perform.

And before someone brings out the argument well if god didn't terminate those pregnancies think of the horrible malformed babies that would be born. Now you have just laid every birth defect at the feet of god.

I wonder how that works for a point.

Go to: Questions Delay Creationist Master's Degrees

Cycik's Avatar Jump to comment 31 by Cycik

In terms of degrees, I was talking with Pastor Deacon Fred of the Landover Baptist church http://landoverbaptist.org/ some years ago at the Atheist Alliance question. He had been going to school at Liberty University and was thrown out some time shortly before graduation. He was worried in that he had about 3 years of creation science. "How am I going to get that to transfer to a real school?" Well, he did get an English degree and got all of the creation science to transfer as American Mythology.

Go to: Richard Dawkins on The Late Edition with Marcus Brigstocke

Cycik's Avatar Jump to comment 99 by Cycik

I met Richard Dawkins at the Atheist Alliance Convention in 2003. A bunch from the convention went on the Titanic dinner cruise around Tampa Bay (There is stuff you just can't make up.) In any event he was dancing with Margaret Downey on the top deck of the ship and is quite a good dancer.

I was waiting for him to get up and start dancing with Marcus at the end of the show. Now that would have been hysterical. I wonder if he would have done it if it weren't for the cold.

Go to: Submission, 'Part 1'

Many times I am not sure how seriously on-line petitions are taken. I just looked at the petition. I thought this signer was particularly amusing:

Dec 31, 2007, Teddy Bear , Sudan
My owner named me Muhammad and she got in trouble for it. A lot of people in my area wanted her dead. Please remove the pictures or else the Islamofascist will kill these people.

I think someone on this site may have found a picture for a new avatar.
