    That is a rather useful lesson. Keeping one's head quite often can be the difference behaving rationally and running around like a silly goose.

    Man, sometimes I wonder if doing drugs might be a bad idea.

    Why is tact important? It's not important in any other kind of debate. I'm not interested in candy coating things to obfuscate the truth of my words so someone isn't offended.

    Not as much as I used to. When I go down to Oregon, I make a point of going to a rave and indulging, but it's been nearly two years since.

    I like differentiating between atheists who are skeptics from people who merely hold the belief "God does not exist", but a) technically speaking, both are atheists -- atheist does not mean "Smartest dude in the room", and b) adeist would be a stupid term, both because it makes no sense what distinguishes an atheist from an adeist, and also because an alpha primitive is greek, so it would be stupid to use it on a latinate term.

    It's pretty obvious that when Dawkins/Harris/et. al. are referred to as atheists, the word 'atheism' is being used as shorthand for a specific brand of physicalist humanist skepticism. You can be an "atheist" without being a physicalist, or a humanist, or a skeptic.

    Which ties in to my problem with atheism as an ideological movement - it conflates what is being argued for with what is being argued against. If you argue for skepticism, or physicalism, then atheism will naturally logically follow. If you argue for humanism, atheism does not necessarily logically follow, but it makes atheism a lot easier to swallow. If you start out arguing against God, you're going to alienate your potential arguments. This is not a moral argument, it is a practical one. I'm not sitting here going "augh, atheists are so offensive!" I'm sitting here going, "augh, atheists are so bad at propaganda!"

    I'm fairly convinced that The God Delusion convinced very, very few people who weren't already atheists. It didn't create converts. But a book called "Humanism is Great!" probably wouldn't have made it to the NYT bestseller list. So while Loren Michael says that the title probably wasn't beneficial for Dawkins personally, I have to disagree. It sold some books, and guarantees that Dawkins is going to be remembered as an ideological crusader and not just a brilliant scientist.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch, man" fallacy.
