Go to: Unsung Heroes, Obscure Scientists

Random Jerk's Avatar Jump to comment 24 by Random Jerk

This really has to deal with the history of Science. I suggest folks here to watch the BBC documentaries Chemistry A Volatile History, BBC Electricity Shock and Awe(not sure of the exact name) and The History of Science. You get to know lots of unsung scientific heroes.

Go to: Living in a very religious country

Random Jerk's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by Random Jerk

I understand your pain living in a backward country like Philipines and have to go through all the religious flak. Also heard that the Philipino constitution is also loosely based on the Catholic doctrine and contraception is illegal. Is that true ? I only hope you can find more liked minded people out there and spend time with them. I'm not sure what you can do with respect to making an impact on public policy when the Secularists numbers are so low.

Anyways, I appreciate your boldness in coming out as an Atheist in such a religious nation.

Evolve: the other fish don't have a leg to stand on - Sarcastic comedy.

Religion stops a thinking mind - Not surely hateful.

Separation of church and hate - Sarcastic comedy.

Religion is myth-information - A factual claim

Blind faith: because thinking is hard - A factual claim

Test your faith: drive with your eyes closed- Good social experiment to validate faith

Silly Christian: myths are for kids - Sarcastic comedy

Liar! Liar! Bible's on fire! - Maybe hateful

Religion is a mental illness - Maybe hateful

The Christian Right is neither- Funny

Born Ok the first time - Brilliantly funny

Faith means not wanting to know what is true - A factual claim

Most of them can't be classified as hate. Compare that with the ridicule, physical abuse, social rejection by family and friends, loss of livelihood Atheists face due to the fools called Christians and their bigotry. I guess you have a basic issue with comparator operations. You just don't seem to realize which side has the greater 'hate' towards the others.

Go to: Richard Dawkins: 2 live TV appearances later today

On the whole Richard - Fraser incident, I think Richard shouldn't have decided to bite the bait by saying 'Yes I know the whole subtitle of the Origin' and then realize that he couldn't get it right, and ultimately ended up looking shabby at that moment. He could have as well said that he doesn't remember exactly the whole specific subtitle . The argument should have been made that remembering such a big subtitle shouldn't have mattered, as the key is to understand the ideas/concepts and then accept it.
