Elderly Members Of Atheist Group Face Jeers, Fears From Peers


Pure poppycock. If you're doing any research on atheism, it's badly flawed and hopelessly prejudiced. Go on any atheist forum on the internet and you'll find people raising money for people in need, people standing up for the Constitution of the United States (particularly, the First Amendment) and in some cases, people exposing instances of religiously-motivated cruelty to fellow humans. Hement Mehta's "Friendly Atheist" site routinely launches donation campaigns to help disaster victims - campaigns which often collect more than their "religious" counterparts. My prediction - your book will flop miserably (except perhaps, in Christian book stores, where the patrons readily accept assertions unsupported by evidence).

Military Moms Breastfeeding In Uniform Create Controversy

I haven't seen a single argument against breast feeding in uniform that doesn't boil down to "it makes me feel icky!" Lindsie, (hippy parents, huh?), boobs are only a "private body part" because we condition ourselves to think so. Army-Retired, once again "professionalism" is a concept that is unique to humans and WE decide what it mean or what it doesn't mean. It's simply another human bias that we've arbitrarily created for ourselves. I'm sorry you were raised in such a repressive community, but that's simply no reason to carry such immature beliefs into the future. We're trying get past those trivial, anti-human attitudes about a perfectly natural, human function - not pander to them. Instead of having the rest of the world acquiesce to your old-fashioned "feelings", how about you just try to get over them?

Escondido Police Under Fire

Since when are bigoted, unethical police officers a surprise, instead of the norm?
