So to paraphrase AngleRho If you are not a christian, and no one stops you from personally obeying a religious tennet so long as you do not force anyone else to do the same, then you are free. If you are a christian and no one stops you obeying a religion tennet, but you cannot use the law to force ...

Overwhelming... Indeed... AND YET there is no good, falsifiable origin of life theory whatsoever that can once and for all put to rest creation. Which is irrelevant to the theory of evolution and whether or not evolution is true, as has been pointed out to you repeatedly. There are many creationist...

It really is ironic how people can turn these things on their head. If gay people getting married is forcing their views on you, then you are forcing your views on Muslims by not requiring all women to wear a burka. Religious freedom entails the right to not be constrained from practicing your relig...

Oh, I can understand it fine. However, as I've said before, there is similar evidence in favor of creationism. Saying it and repeating it do not actually make it any more true though. The fact is that there is a standard of evidence that you routinely accept without question as constituting "proven...

Which has pushed less quiet groups off the radar. I know of no evidence indicating that this is the case and the evidence I am aware of does not support your wider conclusion but rather undermines it. Its not like most Aspies have the numbers or the inclination to be as vocal, is it? Our inclinatio...

So to paraphrase, some people have questions which may or may not be answerable (for instance "what was the colour of the invisible unicorn who caused the fall of Rome" or "what is the 'greater purpose' or 'meaning' of existence). Since science is not answering these questions which may not actually...

Oh I am not arguing directly against gay rights - I have no direct objection to most of it. What I object to is how their rights have become ahead of our rights, as disabled (or "disabled") people. Their difficulties are a property of their own choices (someone does not have to announce that they a...

AngelRho, would you not construe someone was being silly if you suggested that the toothfairy was just a playgame parents play with children and they suggested that this is not proven and it is equally sensible to believe there is an unseen toothfairy mind-controlling parents to take the teeth and r...

I just did a quick bit of research about this Sorkin chap. He defended what many are describing as a homophobic review by a theatre critic by claiming the problem is that the media and public now expect and pay too much heed to personal information about public figures. He has one paragraph in which...

Just a few weeks ago....I couldn't remember how many sides a cube has because I couldn't visualize them in my head. Haha. Ok I feel a bit less stupid now because I have done a similar thing. One time when I wanted to work out how many sides a cube has using a dice, I tried to put fingers on sides o...

People with Aspergers Syndrome can make good victims for those with pathological narcissism who receive narcissistic satisfaction from subjugating or harming others, particularly when the narcissist is in a position of power or authority in respect of the individual characterized by Aspergers Syndro...

For example, consider a situation in which a father and his son are driving down the road. The car collides with a tree and the father is killed. The boy is rushed to the nearest hospital where he is prepared for emergency surgery. On entering the surgery suite, the surgeon says, "I can't operate o...

At my school it was
Yum, yum, bubblegum,
Stick it up your teacher's bum"

Presumably modern children who might attempt the same harmless chant would find themselves charged with the sexual harrassment of their teacher and possibly a child-porn based objectional materials charge to boot.

You know, Tony Attwood had a good insight into people like this. He said you can draw a bell curve for social intelligence, just like the one for traditional IQ. We Aspergians are down there on the left bottom. We get along well with our own kind, on the bottom left. We can also get along really we...

Darwin suggests that creatures transformed into other creatures over successive generations. No he does not, although if you construe that your parents transformed into you then you might interpret his meaning as being such. What Darwin suggested can be summed up as "change in the inherited traits ...
