Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)

That a particular human organ or capacity was adaptive, within the evolutionary environment, does not demonstrate that it places any moral obligation on the individual.

Here's what you said:

You err, sir: Abortion is the removal of a collection of cells. (It may or may not be something else, too--though it certainly is the removal of a collection of cells.)

Abortion should remain safe and legal. Our government should promote free access to family planning internationally--including access to safe abortion, in which the woman is the sole voting...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Rebecca Watson's vlogpost (http://skepchick.org/2011/06/about-mythbusters-robot-eyes-feminism-and-jokes/) [skip to 4:30] was published on June 20 and would have generated enormous comments/discussion...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Okay, I acknowledge the Muslima posting was Richard at his petulent worst. Like Dawkins, I feel unsympathetic to Rebecca Watson's position, in elevatorgate, though I've never momentarily felt the...

Richard Dawkins has not suggested that the healthy human psyche be made up of reason alone; we all acknowledge the area of the irrational, variously defined. A paragraph isn't required for us to...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Is it fair to characterize Dr. Dawkins' central position as I'm rational; you're idiots?

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

I looked at your link, Sapeye--and it doesn't boil down to 'I'm rational; you're idiots.' Dawkins puts forward an evidence-based criticism of theists; that's very different from idle name-calling.

concerning Richard Dawkins

Rothenberg's criticism of Dr. Dawkins (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/39823?in=49:46&out=50:15) is unfair; I was saddened to observe John seconding it. Dawkins takes on his critics courageously...
