I apologize for getting a bit edgy. I'm in a bad mood.

I have picked up a lot of biomedical articles with English worst than mine. Yet, particularly when English is not their first language, I do not doubt their intelligence based on their knowledge of the language.

I am an American.

The out campaign website (at the checkout page if I am not mistaken) has a British flag on which you can click to have the page in English. Aside from it not being necessary (no other language is offered), it is slightly offensive since the audience for this site is, supposedly, an international one. If I was an American "on the fence", after seeing that this website is apparently filled anti-American non-Americans, seeing the British flag as a symbol for the English language could make me go nuts!!! (Sounds stupid but you'd be surprised.)

IF I HAD AN OUNCE OF GRAY MATTER, I WOULD REPLACE THE FLAG WITH THE WORD "ENGLISH", ON WHICH I COULD CLICK ON. Alternatively, if there are no plans to include other languages, I would remove the whole thing.

Also, I made a correction about my "earth around the earth" comment seconds after I submitted it. In any case, unless you were assuming that you were talking to a complete moron (which, for all I know, might be a bad habit of yours), it should not have been difficult to figure out that I meant to say something other than what I said.

Also, almost any educated person you ask will tell you that atoms exist and that the earth goes around the earth. With so many people converging on the same ideas, would that make educated people an unthinking heard?

This shit of atheists and herding cats is just that. Ideally, a compelling truth will attract a huge following.

This is not as big a deal as some of the other stuff you guys are saying but the use of the British flag as a symbol for the English language is slightly offensive.

Damn it!!!

I could've been the first one to write a comment on this page but I wasted that opportunity by watching Harris' talk.

There's always next time.

I hate the fact that whoever edited the clips decided for us that Hedge's view was, for the most part, not worth listening to.

I like to make that decision for my self.

I started reading the comments posted after this article but, to be honest, I got tired of reading after about 20 minutes. I also have a "life" as a grad student that I must get back to.

Bizarro, listen up. I do not believe thare is a god out there. I have not studied much philosophy or religion and "common sense" apparently can easily misguide people. I am an atheist but, given my limited knowledge, I believe that what is more important is an openness to evidence and reason.

I like to think that my atheism, my belief in evolution, and all my other thoughts are subjugated to my disire for truth.

I hope you treat truth the same way.
