What do you think about gay marriage? I think that there is something good to be said about committing to a relationship, no matter who you are. Anything beyond that is pretty much just vocabulary.

I agree with your 5 points completely. I learned #5 from Mr. Spock on Star Trek. The only reason I have a site is because I wanted people to think for themselves. Independent of popular belief or error. Then stand responsible for their choices. I had an unpleasant run-in with another atheist site today that […]

Hello .. um.. not sure what your name is so I’ll say, Hello There, if you don’t mind being called There! Found your site from NoBeliefs.com. I have been an atheist for quite some time but lately I have affirmed that position with some reading. Sam Harris got me started last year and now I’m […]

I had asked you where you find your “safe harbor”, and based on your response I feel almost compelled to wonder if you are somehow my ethical and moral twin — perhaps I am schizophrenic? Did I set up an Atheist forum in my sleep, so I might have at least one imaginary contemporary with […]

It is good to see you are back and posting all the great conversations. I was sorry to hear about your luck and hope things are going better now. I was wondering where you stand on the issue of morality. I’m speaking of the classic argument that goes on between absolutist and relativistic views of […]

“And God sat beside the fallen Cowboy, and He drank from the dry canteen.” The fun thing about blind faith is that it provides so much amusement. And since we are all blind, this life is going to be nothing but fun, right? After so many years of digging for a “truth” I knew I […]

I just wanted to thank you for your response. I do appreciate your insight and it is nice to hear these things from a stranger. Anyway, I just wanted to say that…Thank you. Now to turn to a completely different topic. I was wondering what your take is on the recent debates over federal funding […]

I have really enjoyed your site – thank you for the hard work that must be behind it. Your responses are genuine and well thought out. You provide an excellent behavioral model for intellectual discourse. I’d like to know your philosophical leanings. Is there a particular line of thought that you agree with, or a […]

Thank you for your response. I enjoyed reading it, and it certainly gave me some more things to think about. In particular, I enjoy discussing concepts with people that both have a strong opinion, and know why they have that opinion. I always enjoy talking to someone that can better increase my understanding of the […]

You really kind of like making up the minds of people for them like (am i an athiest no. Yes. Can i change my mind? NO.) why do you do this and please don’t give me an answer like christians haven’t thought for themselves without a preist all their lives. (some) Religious people think for […]
