I would say that RDF should support this guy in his efforts to combat "The Narative" and Islamic Violence, but it would have to be done covertly if at all lest his Islamic audience catch wind that he has support from atheists.

How wonderful to sign off with a Douglas Adam's tribute!

Go to: [UPDATED] What should science do? Sam Harris v. Philip Ball

I loved this exchange. Sam, as he usually does knocked the Ball out of the park. (I'm so sorry for that)

I've been having an exchange recently with one of my Christian, creationist, fundamentalist cousins through Facebook. I'd like to show him this exchange just so he could see how degenerate and small-minded his arguments are in light of how the conversation is elevated long after each participant recognizes how incredibly stupid Christian doctrine is. Perhaps it could give him some perspective. But I doubt it.

Go to: Debate: Christopher Hitchens and Dinesh D'Souza

The anthropic principal is just so stupid to me, and it's D'souza's best argument. Why propose a "tuning" of the physical constants? There is no tuning of them. Yes, they are very precisely what they are, but that is what they must be for there to be anything at all. The constants and the value of them is simply what we find in our language of mathematics. Just because we can easily imagine other numbers for them means nothing. The universe just simply is what it is and we interpret it with our language as we see it. Why do turdburglars like D'souza think this argument gets them anywhere?

Obviously Shermer is a witch and he must undergo a trial to prove he isn't. I prefer the method of binding the arms and legs a tossing him into a lake or pond to see if he levitates to save himself. If he does, we can burn him at the stake. If he doesn't, it's a good method for disposing of witches who can't levitate in water.
