Go to: Is Richard Dawkins an ape?

Peter White's Avatar Jump to comment 14 by Peter White

The idiot changed the subject. Dawkins didn't claim to be a gorilla or a chimp, he claimed, and claims, to be an ape. In effect, Kohlmayer then goes on to argue that Dawkins isn't a non-human ape. Well, good for Kohlmayer! Dawkins also didn't claim to be a straw man.

Go to: Scientists Last Supper

None of the people in that other painting ever existed. So it's very safe to say that I, and virtually all of the people reading this blog, have accomplished more for humanity than any of them.

Go to: Violinists can’t tell the difference between Stradivarius violins and new ones

Many recorded music listeners are similarly fooled by expensive speaker wire and other cons. There are companies selling speaker wire and cables between CD player and amplifier for thousands of dollars per foot, making all sorts of absurd claims about superior sound quality. Of course many double-blind tests have been performed which demonstrate that there's no difference between zip cord of the correct gauge and the megabucks speaker wire, but the true believers never accept the results.

It's sort of like, oh, I dunno, religion?

Go to: The Best Reason to Oppose Ron Paul

Peter White's Avatar Jump to comment 10 by Peter White

So because some people will have to depend on state law for civil rights protection, you'd have the US continue its murderous wars, keep its almost 1,000 military bases in over 130 countries around the world, and keep on propping up vicious dictators, all for the benefit of banks and oil companies.

If you could please name one citizen of Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Panama, Guatemala, Korea or the dozens of other places where the US has slaughtered people in the last 65 years, just ONE, who ever attacked the US, or even presented a credible threat to the US, even so much as came here and was accused of jaywalking, I'll be happy to consider supporting one of the filthy dirtbag politicians running for president against Ron Paul.

Please just name one. Just one. That's not asking too much, right?

Just one. Please.

Break out the Johnnie Walker Black Label and give a toast to Hitch.
