    ^rFactor 2's mp was just like that in the past too. Just saying. I'm not a fan of AC too though. :)

    Wonderful explanation of what Dawkins is about. Really spot on. :)

    I love Matt Dillahunty's analogy for why atheism is not a belief.

    Imagine a glass jar with lots and lots of gum-balls inside it. If someone asked you to state whether you believed the number of gum-balls in the glass jar is even or odd, your default position should be the neutral position with the response "i don't know" because there is insufficient information to conclude either way. Now if some stranger comes along and claims to know that "the number of gum-balls is even", you can either accept and believe it's even or reject the belief that it's even. However since you're still in the neutral position and no closer to having sufficient evidence to justify a belief either way, the only honest thing you can do is to reject the belief/claim that it's even. Now if you reject the claim that "the number of gum-balls is even", does that imply that you've automatically accepted the claim/belief that the number of gum-balls is odd?

    Of course not.

    What makes this extra funny is that Stefano posted this in Twitter. I'm guessing the pinball fantasy is coming to its end, and I didnt even get to experience it :(.

    Comedian Andrew Maxwell takes five British creationists to the west coast of America to try to convince them that evolution rather than creationism explains how we all got here. Stuck on a bus across 2,000 miles of dustbowl roads with these passionate believers, Maxwell tackles some firmly held beliefs - could the Earth be only 6,000 years old, and did humans and T-Rex really live side by side? It's a bumpy ride as he's confronted with some lively debates along the way, but by the end could he possibly win over any of these believers with what he regards as hard scientific fact?

    Neat but not a competitor to OC. It's too early in development. OC biggest hurdle is the resolution problem and time will fix that hopefully in the next two years.
