"It's not just trump. http://observer.com/2016/04/panama-papers-reveal-clintons-kremlin-connection/ [BTW though there is quite likely some truth there, look for other sources. Talkingpointsmemo is just a shill for the Democratic party.]"

jay H replied to Russell Pangborn's discussion When will I ever hear about the power of the Atheist Voting Block?
"Probably not. Partly because atheists are not a unified block. Even things like 'promote equality' are nice platitudes, but the implementation of these abstract goals is widely subject to debate. For example lots of people across the…"

jay H replied to AIystem's discussion I'm kinda worried now
"This is one reason to avoid ever using your actual name (and hence not posting on things like Facebook). Stuff remains for a long time. Ideally it's good to use different screen names on different sites, or at lease a very generic one (i.e.…"

jay H replied to tom sarbeck's discussion How-to Books Paved the Way for Science and Secularism -- An Essay by William Eamon at Aeon

jay H replied to Atheists read the bible.'s discussion Is the reason people are religious because they can get away with anything they want?
"Funny because religious people often say that atheists 'feel they can do anything they want' because we have no fear of hell or fear that God is watching. People can be ethical, people can be criminal whether they are religious or atheists."

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

We live in a society of generalities: not all cyclists are rednecks and vice versa. No offense intended.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
