Go to: Why Dawkins disappoints

Fuller's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Fuller

it is regularly claimed that "new atheists" such as Dawkins are not intellectually outstanding.

It kind of matters who claims this, wouldn't you say?

What nonsense.

Go to: In a Marine Worm’s Eyes, the Theory of Evolution

Fuller's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by Fuller

To me, the eye doesn't seem that tough to explain in evolutionary terms. Light sensitive cell - multiple light sensitive cells - multiple light sensitive cells in a concave structure - halfway there already.

But I guess it was tougher approaching it with fresh (ahem) eyes.

Go to: Tory chief Baroness Warsi attacks 'bigotry' against Muslims

Fuller's Avatar Jump to comment 253 by Fuller

There does seem to be a growing trend of accomodationism and 'Islamophobophobia', as RD cleverly put it, in not just the UK but around the western world. It makes me feel quite queasy, the possibility that it is going to become harder and harder to criticise Islam without being branded Islamophobic. Already I'm finding I need to couch my language in qualifiers and assurances and distinctions, which makes it quite difficult to express my point of view with proper effect. This, I think, is why our opponents like the word so much. It's a tremendously successful go-to line when they don't have a response to our actual arguments.

Serious problem.

Urgh. This sucks so much. I don't know what else to say except this really sucks.
