"I doubt that there is a happy medium. You never know when a believer will flip out over an innocuous comment. I taught college English for 27 years, 20 years of that at an historically black college in the deep South, where the vast majority of…"
"I replied to someone earlier today on a similar topic. I told him that we Atheists have a responsibility to dismantle the stigma that the label Atheist holds that has been given to us by religious nuts. We must show ourselves as good humans, not…"
"No, I find no happy median. I'm in a situation due to my hobbies (sewing and embroidery). I belong to several Facebook groups and, for the most part, the people there are very nice and I've learned to ignore much of the…"

"A year ago my wife bought me a Barns & Noble nook - love it! She checked it out - I had to buy HER one if I was ever going to get mine back. Since, we've bought one for our son (35) and my mother. I have the B&W with WiFi and 3G - my…"
"Bruce - I'm sorry, but it is not really all that different an argument. "Big pharma makes money and uses it to hide the truth" is just a variation since the claim is that they make money off the thing they want to hide the truth…"
"The trouble with this "somebody made money on this, therefore it is suspect" argument is that it is a logical fallacy, attacking the motive. Let us say that you had it in mind to make a vaccine? Would you do it for free? How much time…"
