RE: Why was today a good day thread
I got to tell two JW ladies who came to the door that I was an atheist and I thought their religion was one of the sillier ones.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Why was today a good day thread
Isn't it great to be an atheist and not have to waste sundays? I slept in until 8am, made the kids french toast, then we spent the day at Water Country (water park) and then I came home, made them spaghetti, sat down and took HBL to the woodshed a few times for a good laugh, and now it is time to go to bed, great day.

I don't know sometimes it's sheer drudgery, but today it's a pleasure.

Well where the hell were you an hour ago? I wasn't getting a damn bit of pleasure out of laundry. Your's must be special. Dodgy

It does have a nice spin cycle. Ohmy

@Chas, good work with JW's...priceless!

I think I did well on my test today!

RE: Why was today a good day thread
A teacher approved my course paper, a media discourse analysis about legalizing child adoption by homosexual couples.
I discovered in the analysis, that the culture and status quo has no arguments and basically consists of people who meddle with other people's private business and call it politics. If cultural conventions get into public discussion against people's personal needs and common sense logic (religion does not equal morality), they always lose.
Traditionalists are always dewy-eyed about present values, not about 200 years old values, which are actually traditional. So that's how you know they're full of shit.
Liberty is about seeing what isn't your business. If gay couples adopt children, that doesn't take children away from hetero couples, so STFU and let progress go on.

Thanks for the thesis. I have no objections, it's great.

Good job, bro.

I don't think I would have used that line in a course paper but it's a very good executive summary.

Thumbsup

Oh, it's a translation. I wrote it in academic language (add some Georg Simmel and let it simmer) and also in an altered state of consciousness.
Sure enough, I keep going back to Molyneux-grade philosophy. Mass media can't address target audiences, like spokesmen on the square of Athens.
So mass media must generalize their arguments. Generalization works by logic.

Culture has no arguments. When it starts arguing, it starts losing. First they ignore you (no arguments), then they laugh at you (still no arguments), then they fiercely oppose you (reveal lack of arguments) and then you win. The no argument phase is the worst, it was obvious that blacks are meant to be slaves and women aren't fit to vote and that children need beating.
