Urgent and important to all. Please see the link below. This is an event organized by the international scientific community to demonstrate against and resist the Trumph administration's blatantly…Continue
"What they all said! We'd miss you!
Thanks to Daniel for explaining how to change settings (including your screen name and profile URL, if necessary). Maybe some of that will be helpful.
In any case, I wish you well, whatever you do."
"John, you are a dear friend to me and I am sorry you will be leaving. You offer good ideas and clarify confusions. I often turn to your post when I want to understand ideas. My best wishes to you and whatever you do. "
"John, I would hate to see you go. You are one of the most well-reasoned people here and I always welcome reading your posts.
If you are getting notices and they annoy you, go to your page (MY PAGES) tab, then to Settings (upper right corner…"
"John, you can go to "SETTINGS," scroll down a bit, and to the right of the "SAVE" button there is a link labeled, "Leave Atheist Nexus." I believe there are a couple options regarding whether to remove all your…"
"With all due respect Ruth the phrase was :"This whack job of quack science " referring to the pseudoscience, not the man. It was no more disrespectful than anything said by others constantly about those of us who disagree with…"
" John and Idaho Spud: I second the above motion! This whack job of quack science has gone on far too long on the Nexus and never once has a single bit of data or evidence been presented in support of it. Only ad hominim attacks under the guise…"
"I agree with Loren, and applaud your loss of temper. I , for one, think science has been far too tolerant and accommodating towards theistic beliefs. If we were debating these issues within the scientific community we would never be so polite and…"
"Also, BenGee, as we have talked before, being a scientist is really about adopting a realistic world view that provides an acceptance of realistic rules about "how we know what we know"and how we evaluate what constitutes acceptable…"
"Right again BenGee.
When people track our origins around the planet using our genetics they are not really tracking our "racial" origins. Many people misunderstand that what they actually are tracking are some few genetic markers that…"
I and several others have been through all this with you before and found it pointless. I have no intent of arguing with you. As I said, it's hopeless and degenerates into only attacks. Proof is in this pudding.
I am not…"
"Amazing, isn't it? Same old tactics that earmark all psueudoscience. Attack the scientist instead of dealing with reality. To reuse an Asimov quote previously cited on the Nexus: "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and…"
"John, You are wasting your time on this EU pseudoscience garbage. This argument has been had for years by many on the Nexus and any real science brought to the discussion was and will be simply fanatically shouted down. Eventually the argument…"

John, you can go to "SETTINGS," scroll down a bit, and to the right of the "SAVE" button there is a link labeled, "Leave Atheist Nexus." I believe there are a couple options regarding whether to remove all your posts and comments or not ... but personally, I wish you'd hang around.
