As the new forum categorizations conveniently, and arguably correctly, leave science unclassified, I have elected to form a group devoted to discussion of scientific issues.

About Me:
I have achieved seemingly irrevocable nerd status due to my obsession with modern physics and my often obfuscating penchant for supererogatory usage of hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian verbiage.

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Science/Math Nerd

(Absolute Insane Laughter as you pour toxic chemicals into a foaming tub of death!) Well, maybe you aren't this extreme, but you're in league with the crazy scientists/mathmeticians of today. Very few people have the talent of math and science is something takes a lot of brains as well. Thank whosever God you worship, or don't worship, so thank no deity whatsoever in your case, for you people! Most of us would have died off without your help.

My Sorts of Views

New Zealand's new Copyright Law presumes 'Guilt Upon Accusation' and will Cut Off Internet Connections without a trial. CreativeFreedom.org.nz is against this unjust law - help us
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. —Evelyn Beatrice Hall, but often attributed to Voltaire
[T]he true natural sciences lock together in theory and evidence to form the ineradicable technical base of modern civilization. The pseudosciences satisfy personal psychological needs… but lack the ideas or the means to contribute to the technical base. —Edward O. Wilson Sexually progressive cultures gave us mathematics, literature, philosophy, civilization and the rest, while sexually restrictive cultures gave us the Dark Ages and the Holocaust. Not that I’m trying to load my argument, of course. —Alan Moore
Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition.
—Adam Smith (1723-90) Scottish economist. The Wealth of Nations, 1776.

Just because homophobia is more socially acceptable than racism doesn't make it any better.
—TheAmazingAtheist

Full sexual consciousness and a natural regulation of sexual life mean the end of mystical feelings of any kind. In other words, natural sexuality is the deadly enemy of mystical religion. The church, by making the fight over sexuality the center of its dogmas and of its influence over the masses, confirms this concept.
—Wilhelm Reich

All rational action is in the first place individual action. Only the individual thinks. Only the individual reasons. Only the individual acts.
—Ludwig von Mises

To paraphrase Dick Cheney, the anti-gay insurgency is in its last throes (and this time, it happens to be true). That's why they're reacting with such zealous fervor, because the ideological hegemony their bigotry once enjoyed is on the way out. Once again, the promises of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are being extended where they were previously denied. And there's nothing they can do to stop it.
—Ed Brayton

Resistance to tyranny is mankind's highest ideal.
—Emma Goldman

Conservatism was always the philosophy of Nativism, Protectionism, Nationalism, Militarism, Altruism, Traditionalism, Mercantilism, Racism, Sexism, and Theocracy. The only reason why Conservatism became friendly with Individualism was to Combat Radicalism in the form of Communism, Political Correctness, and Forced Integration. Let us not forget that Political Conservatism is the enemy, not the friend of Libertarianism.
—Lysander Woods

I happen to find homophobia shocking and appalling. I think it is morally corrupt. I would like to see it removed. Where is my form?
—Maureen Johnson

Bad facts make bad law, and people who write bad laws are in my opinion more dangerous than songwriters who celebrate sexuality.
—Frank Zappa

All censorships exist to prevent anyone from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently the first condition of progress is the removal of censorship.
—George Bernard Shaw

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.
—John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

'Theocracy' has always been the synonym for a bleak and narrow, if not a fierce and blood-stained tyranny.
—William Archer (1667-1735)

If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.
—Noam Chomsky

Universal human rights exist, whether religion recognizes them or not, and we have to stand up for this.
—Christopher Hitchens

Democracy on the Ning?

This blog post by my friend Xaiylia prompted me to ask all of you the question of whether the current method for picking Ningmasters, an oligarchical appointment based system in which only Hank, John, and Tom really have a say, is suitable for the format of this site.



You see, the very reason they need Ningmasters is that they do not use this website with particular frequency. It does not… Continue

Honor Killings

I continue to be astonished by the depths of depraved violence to which people will sink to impose their "morality." Hideous violence masquerading as morality takes one of its most vivid and despicable forms in the hideous act known as the honor killing. Recently in Russia a Muslim father hired assassins to murder his own daughter, simply because he disapproved of her choice of apparel. At least in his relatively civilized nation, he… Continue

Thank you! I've kind of neglected it (the Thinking Liberally blog) since the elections - it was an exciting election season and there was so much to share I started it then. Of course, things are less "exciting" after the party's over - ha. I just recently thought I should try to update it... there is SO much that is going on, and it's so crazy out there... it's hard to get a handle on it at times. I do bookmark a lot of articles on Diigo, which shows up (at least my bookmarks tagged "politics") in the sidebar of my blog - so that's where the "real action" on that blog has been. I don't think it shows up on my Ning page, though - here's the actual site: http://liberalfriends.blogspot.com
