I might stop going on BBC News' comments because they're just a cesspool of racism and xenophobia I honestly think that with people like these, there will soon be a new far-right party in Britain. Imagine Tommy Robinson is in charge of a borderline fascist party... Might be a bit hyperbolic but I'm...

I suppose my ideology is some sort of paternalistic technocratic progressivism. Nothing is sacred, tear down traditions, unceasing technological and societal progress, and everyone shut the fuck up while qualified experts are talking.

Ad Astra.

I can see why critics loved it, because it's the sort of snooze-fest character study that critics always love. All I saw was a tedious mess of plot holes and bad science that ultimately didn't have anything particularly interesting to say.

Life and intelligent life are two different things, and like I said the factors that lead to selecting for intelligent life seem to not be common. Nevertheless, supposing that there exist intelligent lifeforms that are common as you imply, you still can't develop past the laws of physics. an alien ...

The problem with the free will apologetic is the necessary underlying condition that it was God that created us to have the ability to be/choose evil to begin with. Thus, we end up with a God that punishes us for being what God made us to be to begin with. This seems unfair, if not sociopathic, at ...

Why is God responsible for human actions? Because, if he exists (which he does not), God created the entire context in which it is possible for evil actions to be committed. Evil was not possible until God created it. He must bear the responsibility for the cruelty of the existence which he has cho...

And now I see abortion-rights activists and gay-rights activists act a little too sure of themselves about what's motivating the opposition, and I'm wondering if I'm on the wrong side of those issues as well. How about forming an opinion on the issues themselves instead of basing your political vie...

This is massively consequential if it goes through. This could potentially mean the end of conflict in Afghanistan since the Soviet invasion decades ago. Of course, any potential peace would be very tense and terrorism would still exist, but actual armies fighting it out would hopefully end, and th...

I don't think it's the job of atheism to make the world a better place. Also, even if you could prove a correlation between belief in deities and positive social outcomes, they still don't exist.

In regards to the poll; kinda sad. I'm pro-EU but I've became so tired of the drama and rhetoric that I just want to get on with it and hope that Britain can make the most out of being outside the EU. It's been a tad disappointing to see all the racists and xenophobes crawl out of the sewer where w...

Many trains in the UK still have toilets ("hopper toilets") that flush straight onto the tracks, hence the toilet paper and shit that can be spotted on the tracks at train stations. There are usually signs in the toilets telling people not to flush in stations, but clearly they do. Must o...

If there is no welfare, people might die. However, it's not the fault of 'society' that they do, it's on them for not getting work to pay the bills. The welfare of its members is literally the only purpose of society. Ironically, as a model for human survival, it has been so successful that the res...
