Link is broken in the article. Oh well.

It has been a bit yuck. Some of the comments. I'm really loathe to post any of them. It's upsetting to me, I can't imagine how it would be for women.

any chance we can get him off the case? what a lousy article. starting with the title ... I mean, does he know for fact that all these assholes on the AFA page are atheists? by the same logic, anyone who commented on his article is a journalist. we have enough issues to deal with and he is not helping.

Nope. No FB for me: I see no value in it.
Smart move.

Thankyou. I appreciate all that you AFA Facebook mods do. It's a jungle out there.

Clearly the god question is something of a no-brainer. Obviously atheism is the only defensible stance.

Yet there is much more to confront if you seek go down that track. The AFA Forum is getting me to confront it on a continuing basis. I'm not alone.

Most excellent.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

I just noticed this novelty phone case in the shape of a carton containing "100% Boys Tears" and it reminded me of this thread.

I think it's going to die out now.

The issues will continue, but the thread appears to have a few people taking a good hard look at exactly who is supporting and cheering on what, and there's a lot of blatant MRA and even a few sockpuppets.

But honestly. If you're going to write endlessly about how much you hate Clementine Ford and how much you hate Facebook posts about her and how much you hate conventions... just don't go. Get a life elsewhere. Plenty of great community causes you could get behind instead.

Speaking of which, new Pokemon Go gyms are a bit too much effort to maintain, might have to rethink my gaming there.
