Go to: Philippe Starck: Why design?

"God is the answer when we don't know the answer."

Very simple but profound. If this man coined the phrase then he is well on his way to historical remembrance...

Reread the title and that was mighty funny.

Go to: Soldier Sues Army, Saying His Atheism Led to Threats

Lionspoint's Avatar Jump to comment 25 by Lionspoint

Mordacious1's comment brought me straight back to the early days of my basic training. Clean the barracks or go to church? Um, gee, let me think...

As for this soldier being harassed, that is rediculous. If a person is deployed to Iraq and the best thing they can think of to spend their time is to harass another person's views, then why not join Al-Sadr. He suppresses differing views, too. I was an outspoken atheist while deployed to Iraq and I didn't get crap from anyone. Of course I was a sergeant, too, and would have taken anyone down that thought to scrap...

Being an atheist he was likely in intelligence and they aren't well known to be good scrappers...

Go to: Beware the Believers

Why, in the name of Darwin, is this video getting so much attention? For those of us 34 (I am 34) and under this is funny just because we truly respect Dawkins and Dennett and Harris and the lot. I truly respect you guys far more than you could possibly realize. And to see your remarks "satirized" is, to me, solidification as to you being right. You guys are copied because people like me want to emulate you.

Dr. Dawkins, you really should feel a sense of humility because soooooooooooooo many people admire you. You all by yourself make me sad I will not get to know you in the next life...Which is very unlikely...

Go to: Happy Birthday, Richard Dawkins!

totaleclipse put it best (at least for me) in comment 15 of this thread.

You have done an immeasurable amount of good and I am very thankful for your profound desire to spread truth and understanding. It is unlikely that you fully understand how good you really are and how many people you have helped in your work. Thanks... it isn't a big enough word...but it'll have to do.

Happy birthday. Elated.
