You could always start with this.

Rugrat, if ever any of us wanted to tell our stories I'd say chances are 99 to 100% that we'd want to write them ourselves, rather than entrust them to a person of such dubious credentials as yourself. A schmuck who spends an entire thread avoiding direct questions and pushing a religious agenda, while appearing not to give any thought to the objections raised. Why the fuck would any of us having seen your performance, then expect you to do anything except distort and manipulate any account to fit with your bullshit?

Randy, your "journalism" may possibly be unbiased but your authorship of books on matters of creation, evolution and belief are so biased, at least one is so full of misused out of context quotations, opinions presented as facts etc. that on this evidence I would be suspicious if you claimed 2+2=4.

I would suspect an ulterior motive for your use of the truth.

Is that a genetic belief?

I appreciate the correction. Thank you.

Really ? What made you change that up when you came to TTA to post this feedback question ?

I see you're as delusional about yourself as you are about your deities. Facepalm

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

The moment you think this, is the moment you're blind to seeing it and correcting it. There are few things more biased than someone convinced of their own lack of bias.

You have got to be joking.

In this thread so far, you have:

-called us broken, corrupted mutants.

-linked atheism to a mental illness.

-linked atheism to autism.

-lied about links between atheism and war/genocide

-shown a complete lack of understanding regarding infant mental development

-used cheap tabloids as reliable sources to back up science subjects

-lied about Galileo and his arrest

-lied about Christianity inventing all sciences

-repeatedly lied about science backing up your false claims

-repeatedly linked pattern-seeking behaviors to religious belief

-misquoted Darwin

-linked atheism to homosexuality.

Did I miss anything?

And now after all that you want to exploit personal stories for your financial gain?

No. After what you've posted so far, it's an insult that you are even asking.

And now you're going to judge us in regards to how exciting we are.

Everything you have posted here has exhibited extreme bias.

With a background in journalism you have no business writing a book critiquing evolution, or one on the neurological functions of our brains.

With your behavior here you have no business writing a book that exploits the extremely personal stories of people you have already insulted and denigrated.
