Go to: Christopher Hitchens obituaries

ksskidude's Avatar Jump to comment 66 by ksskidude

Today I was awoken with such sad news. I have lost a hero today. It makes me want to cry because we all have lost an amazing man; a man that even though many of us did not know or meet, still felt like a friend. Christopher Hitchens along with Professor Dawkins and Sam Harris all have given me the courage to find my voice. It's hard for me as an atheist to know that he is dead, because this is it. But I am encouraged that I know his legacy will never die, because we won't allow it. It is up to all of us to keep his legacy strong and his voice heard by generations to come. Goodbye Christopher Hitchens.

Go to: How to teach evolution in middle school

I wish you would have at the very least told us the town and state in which you live. Maybe we could start some form of email campaign on behalf of evolution. There are all kinds of ways to present it to the school board and your name not ever be mentioned. We need to to start bringing this kind of stupidity to light. Everytime I read something like it just reinforces to me why I do stay informed. My friends ask me so often why do I care so much about religion? Well they don't ever see or read anything like this, and when and if they do, I don't know that they even care. Sometimes it is so depressing living in America. " I can just hear all of them now, "if you hate it so bad, why don't you leave." That statement is so stupid on so many levels. I understand why you are frustrated. I would be, and would have been fired by now.

Go to: God's soft white underbelly

The Following was written by a colleague of mine. I gave my response to him, but would love some other responses if you are willing to comment.

Mitch wrote: "In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was god. The same was in the beggining with God. All things were made by him and without him was not anything made that was made. John 1:1-3 God made Lucifer and he gave him free will to choose between obedience or disobedience the same as he has given us today. Because of Adams choice to eat the apple we are all born with a sin nature. The choice to hurt someone therefore is a result of our own free will. But with disobedience comes consequences. By God giving Lucifer a choice evil came into existence. This is too long an explanation to cover on FB but make no mistake about we need to study and learn about the divine nature of God and as we do this we will gain a better understanding about who God is and what he is all about."

Go to: School Board Official to Resign After Making Anti-Gay Comments

ksskidude's Avatar Jump to comment 52 by ksskidude

I don't believe for one second that this man is sorry at all! If you read what he wrote than there really can be no way he is actually sorry. Sure he is sorry that he has to resign, but this dude is a homophobe. I hope that someone takes him out to the woodshed, if you know what I mean!!

Go to: First Human Embryonic Stem Cell Trial Begins

ksskidude's Avatar Jump to comment 34 by ksskidude

As an individual with a SCI this is fantastic and exciting news. I knew it was only a matter of time before this was going to happen. Let's just hope that it shows improvements for the patient.

While I would not qualify for this treatment, it is however the first step of the process to one reaching an answer to the trauma the spinal cord endures. My injury occured nearly 26 yrs ago playing football on 9/11/84. Just knowing that maybe one day I might not hurt or suffer or have the muscle loss anymore would be extrodinary.

This is just another example of the brilliance of science!
