Go to: Boys reach sexual maturity younger and younger

Sister Chromatid's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Sister Chromatid

Could it be that boys who reach sexual maturity younger have more children and thus pass on more of those quick maturation genes?

Go to: Why Dawkins disappoints

The truth isn't won or lost in a debate. What is there to debate? It would be akin to an astronomer debating an astrologer.

Go to: Why Religious Believers Are So Desperate for the Atheist Seal of Approval

Sister Chromatid's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by Sister Chromatid

I suspect many theists that show up at atheist/skeptic sites are trying to get atheist approval, even thought they don't say as much. What they appear to be doing is attempting to prove to themselves that their faith is more "true" than all those other faiths they dismiss. The anger they end up feeling towards atheists is a defense (I think) to keep them from realizing that they may be fooling themselves in the exact same manner as all those with conflicting faiths must be doing. It irks them to understand that the atheist finds their supernatural beliefs as unbelievable as they find all those other supernatural beliefs... and for the same reasons! Oftentimes, the atheist is the first person who has ever pointed out that faith and feelings are not a way of knowing anything true. We live in a culture where "faith" is considered a virtue (it's what their invisible savior wants most of all), but the atheist doesn't consider it such.

I doubt anyone has actually been "ostracized" anyhow. I think peoples' feelings might be hurt when they realize that most skeptics find religious woo as silly as the skeptic find other woo (and for good reason)... and some sensitive sorts are equating these "hurt feelings" with "being ostracized".
