Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

You're so fond of pointing out "philosophical reasons" as if having reasons for a belief makes it less harmful. I pointed out the harm a belief causes and you say there is reason for it. I hate to...

Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

You keep saying, "But that isn't Mormon crazy." I just need to point out how disturbing this is. Your example was that they at some point in the past didn't accept black people as full members. What...

Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

Apple wanted crazy beliefs. I gave them. I'm not sure what this "comparability" is about. Either your belief has some sort of evidence to support it or it is unfounded and hence crazy. All the ones I...

Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

Transubstantiation (how is this not cannibalism?), condom use, the possibility of someone being "fully human and fully God" at the same time, a God needed to sacrifice himself to himself to atone for...

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

I hesitate to ask, but why do you consider Paleo or low carb a "fad diet" but not the Mediterranean diet? That just seems silly.

Just for good balance:...

Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

Hmm...it seems you have called Jesus a child molester. I'm not sure you meant to do that, because if you ask a Mormon who they worship (or who the best man who ever lived was) they will definitely...

Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

As was pointed out, I was addressing the "morality" issue rather than the doctrinal issue. On the other hand, I fail to see how "doctrine" can actually be separated from people in positions of power...

Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

You have got to be kidding. Catholicism still engages in horrifying practices. Forget 30 years ago. What about its obsession with contraception perpetuating the rampant spread of HIV in potions of...

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

Alright, I'll agree with everything you say. All I wanted to see was a few words about why it might be overly simplistic to say "my total cholesterol is bad." The reason is that there are many...

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

Being an "expert" doesn't make you infallible. "My response was in great part due to the way that Labarthe's opinion and authority in the topic was dismissed." You realize that this is one of the...

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

Thanks! I completely forgot to mention the absurdity of the salt part of the conversation in my last post.

Re: Positive Cardiovascular Health (Robert Wright & Darwin Labarthe)

I've bit my tongue on several Bloggingheads discussions when supposed experts either perpetuate myths or at least don't correct them. This one went too far and I had to create an account to post...
