    The atheists at rationalskepticism.org are dumber than the Christians at Crosswalk, but the Christians at Crosswalk are more dishonest.

    (by and large)

    It looks like a pending coup or something like that.

    But that's nothing unusual, it's Thailand!

    I think I'm lactose intolerant now.

    Take Lactaid, or any of those dairy-intolerance pills. A friend of mine loves cheese but is extremely lactose intolerant, and the pills make it so he can have cheese.
    Over time, you can build up more of a tolerance if you don't take those pills.

    If you do take those pills, they just cause your body to produce less of the chemicals you need to digest dairy, which just makes you more intolerant.

    This is on shaky footing at best. Lactase production in the gut does not seem to be influenced by the presence or absence of lactose in the diet. The only thing you can do is condition your gut fauna to break down lactose more efficiently, but that's basically what lactose intolerance is anyway: you don't break it down, your gut fauna does and there's a temporary population explosion as they pig out on the surplus of food they're getting.

    EDIT: It also doesn't fit say, my experience, where I realized that the reason I was getting intestinal bloating and all the associated fun was because every morning I'd have cereal with a lot of milk. This is not an uncommon problem - it usually hits around age 18-19 for people.

    Of you could take the pills and skip the terrible "adjustment" phase. You know, unless society collapses.

    As of right now, nothing. She doesn't have time to during the week and I don't like working out alone.

    Last time I did this diet I lost 50 pounds and didn't work out at all. I'm not too worried this time, but I would like to work out.

    I'll think of something. Right now I'm focusing on eating better.

    Because when people talk about belief, they are not referring to the belief in anything other than something theistic. People don''t say "do you believe in homeopathy" unless they already know that you don't believe in god. So you use the word atheist, meaning that you don't believe in any theism and it thereby implies anything that has some sort of dogma attached to it.

    Do you know people who don't believe in god but do believe in astrology, homeopathy and other woo? If so then they are not really atheists they are merely "a-deists." Unfortunately the word isn't accepted or found in any dictionaries but it ought to be there because a non-belief in gods but a belief in other woo doesn't make you an atheist, because all the other woo carries its own forms of theism. Well in my opinion anyway, and I'm sure a lot of people will agree with me on that.

    About 4 1/2 months. Went from 240 - 190. And now since I got a girlfriend and engaged, I stopped eating healthy cause you can't date someone and eat healthy, and I gained it all back. :(

    Kudos on changing your diet, but you'll really get much better results if you can take 20 minutes out of your day 3-4 times a week for exercise.

    And really a diet isn't something you should do temporarily and then return to your gluttonous ways. Find a way of eating that's sustainable.
