    Jeez, how do I respond to that zzzzzinger? "Scientifically illiterate," I s'pose.

    But really, look up "-ism" in a suffix dictionary. It refers to a belief system or ideology. And science is...

    I'd argue that the term "scientism" itself is an effort by, for the most part, religious apologists, to falsely portray science as a dogmatic ideology rather than what it actually is, which is a...

    He's a phenomenal player but a bigtime douchebag. But it's not as if his dickishness wasn't already well known, so this isn't really anything new.

    Insinuation is not critical thinking. Posing hypotheticals as thought experiments is not only fine, it's great. But if you only raise a question and leave it dangling there, without actually...

    Self employed, so no paid time off. The good: I can take time off whenever I want or need to. The bad: Whenever I take time off, I'm not only spending more money than usual (generally), but I'm also...

    Then why the **** did you reply to my post?

    I don't know. (And anyone who claims to know is lying). But all of the scientific evidence available points to the extreme likelihood that life is material, and that when death occurs, that's just...

    Whatever state you live in should have a medical board to which you can file complaints about doctors, hospitals, etc. If I were in your shoes, I certainly would in this case. That is WAY out of...

    It should also be noted that while a lot of people use the terms "natural," "alternative," "holistic" and "homeopathic" interchangeably, the first three are very vague and don't mean much in and of...

    The term "homeopathic medicine" is an oxymoron....

    The term "homeopathic medicine" is an oxymoron. Homeopathic substances, by definition, literally water down any potential active ingredients to so few molecules as to amount to nothing.

    Case in...

    As an atheist myself, as much as I wish you were right, I think you're being overly optimistic. Throughout human history, a $#!+ton of people have always believed, and likely will always believe, in...

    Just a guess, but probably not until after white cops stop killing unarmed black kids.

    Well, I have two things to say about that:

    Firstly, I apologize for lumping you in with the right. But in fairness, I hope you are aware that there has been, over the last 12-14 years or so, a...

    That's completely fine. You don't have to care about it. That's the entire point. These billboards are not for you, they're for nonbelievers.

    Seems safe to say that you probably don't give a crap about people being ostracized over their lack of religious belief, based on your dismissiveness. But it's a very real thing, and it truly is...
