  • I put it down to bullying, narcissistic parents. So how do adults have more empathy than children?

    I have to say from my own personal experience, in the western developed world…especially in anglo-saxon countries, there is an enormous amount of cruelty when we are young at the playground, between brothers and…[Read more]

  • Very nice Sunday school Reg

  • And if my clueless democratic party equates every allegation with automatic guilt we are done for and liberals should hang our heads in shame

    Oh God not you too. First of all per your claim that women go for assholes, and by the way that is a ludicrous argument usually made by misogynistic pick up artists…where is your evidence…[Read more]

  • I think we need to stop this idea that “men are all assholes and women are all victims” because it’s creating a huge divide between men and women.

    Jesus Christ who let this cliché mysogenist onto our website? Asianne you perfectly typify the “men are the victim” stereotype. Just spot on. When women fight back…it’s the oh no…po…[Read more]

    usefulness and the history of belief

    All I’m saying is, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is not a good analogy because it bears no relation to everyday life, whereas the God of Christianity and Islam is intimately connected with everyday life. So, we cannot compare the two.

    Any my response is that it is nonsense, a…[Read more]

  • All these rich bitches complaining is making it more dangerous for those of us who have serious shit happening and now we really have nowhere to turn

    Are you trying to say that the experience of rich women who were sexually assaulted is more trivial than poor women who were sexually assaulted? Are you proposing that rich women who…[Read more]

  • Women have been ignored, not believed or punished for being the victim of abuse, in numbers most of us wouldn’t possibly believe were true if it weren’t for witnesses and the sheer number of people who can attest to a persons sexual sleaziness and assault. A movement has started to stop avoiding the police who often ignore you, fear not the crowd…[Read more]

    Has the Flying Spaghetti Monster caused a book with genuine wisdom in it, to be written? Does the Flying Spaghetti Monster help people in their everyday lives?

    Would you please stop appealing to usefulness and the history of belief of something as somehow relevant to the existance of Gods?. As many of us have been over this…[Read more]

    Simon you are failing to distinguish between two things. One being the ability to have absolute certainty. The other one being default skepticism vs. Cultural-motional-conditioning. In no system ever used could you prove anything absolutely is as you say so. Its an annoying yet true thing. We don’t and so at cannot know everything. A tiny sliver…[Read more]

    What does a religious person mean, when they say that atheism is like a religion?

    They mean that religious knowledge, scientific knowledge and critical thinking are equal in terms that they all require a belief in that which lacks at least some certainty.

    This is wrong for several reasons. The clearest being that religious…[Read more]

    Some people respond to the “drastic punishment by God” if he…say…destroys the world per evil… with the argument that, as children our parents may restrict us and even spank us because they lovingly know that it is for our protection, education and development as a person. And yes…it really does come from love. We should note that  many…[Read more]

    Jade.. extremely nice method for opening up the eyes of those who don’t know about fear and abuse…nor see, experience but are prone to deny, underestimate or downplay the abuse. Thanks for sharing.

    Its not just women. Men within the lgtbq+ community often face sexual harassment, assault, stalking, domestic violence and general objectification from other lgrbq+
    The worst response to this is to deny it happens. The second worst response is “you are attacking me and accusing me of being a rapist when you point out its prevalence amongst l…[Read more]

  • Yes. An undeniable yes. It is the most perfect description of the monster and mobster of the old testament.

    A more interesting question is: Was Jesus a predator? Is he now in whatever bizarre form he has in heaven…a predator?

     

  • Simon, Its not group selection, it can’t be I should have put camp selection! The individuals in the paper are highly mobile and move between camps. But each camp has a variation in the amount of sharing. When the individual moved to a new camp. They adopt the new level of sharing. You can see in the original paper, the g…

    What happens if you drive past an evangelical university at the speed of light???

  • Davis posted a new activity comment 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Because so many of it have it in your mind that the whole reason to be good is from fear of punishment or not getting rewards. This is, viewed through all non totalitarian morality or spoon-fed-morality…and extremely non-constructive if not toxic way at looking at morality and decision making.

    However if a good christian who is baffled why…[Read more]

    • Yep,

      Interesting points there, when I was reading that article about Bayle The Huguenot Philosopher and how he was able to conclude

      Atheist can be moral and there are immoral believers also.

      I was thinking what is he doing mentally which is different to others around him? Which allowed him to reach that conclusion?

      One way in which I think he…[Read more]
