"Faith is not a good reason to believe in any one thing. It's a bad reason to believe in everything. Faith is not synonymous with any one idea; it is synonymous with any strongly held idea, true or not. But one thing faith is not synonymous with is a logically justified idea."

Don't Make Fun of Jesus!

Today I posted a picture on my Facebook page. It sparked two separate situations. First I learned that my girlfriend was deleted by a few of her friends for the very fact that the picture existed. It was quite clear to anyone with half a brain that she did not post the picture, but that someone else had. I guess when it comes to personal offense it doesn't matter if you aim your aggression in the right direction, so long as you can still feel vindicated in the end.

The Rational Reponse to Faith Based Reasoning

You only believe something because you think it's true, and you only think it's true because you think somewhere there is good reason to believe it. But as soon as all the reasons are dissected and shown to be nothing more than half truths and whole lies, you decide to resort to the "I have faith" argument. I call bullshit.

Political Philosophy

The systems of Communism and America's democracy lack a balance of both responsibility and authority.

In basic forms of Communism, everyone has responsibility, but no one has authority. In practice, it's actually that the majority has responsibilities, but all the authority rests in the hands of those who in relation to their subjects, have no responsibility. Or at least they feel no responsibility.

Animal Rights: Letter to an Ethical Vegan

There's not enough consistency in the moral vegan/vegetarian argument for animal rights. One minute it's that every living animals has inherent rights, but then it's that we understand rights and have a moral obligation to them, but if a lion eats me it's justified because he didn't understand and has no obligation to consider my inherent right to life.

Discussion with an Acupuncture Supporter

Acupuncture is only a Placebo.

Its not placebo...acupuncture works by triggering responses in the nervous system. For example, the use of acupuncture as a pain reliever involves affecting key nerve junctions that trigger the release of endorphins. The notion that all Eastern medicine and homeopathy is "placebo" or "faith based" is an errant one.
