Can any atheist, agnostic, exotheologist, or noogenesist explain the Richard Dawkins hate on Metafilter. This has been bugging me for ages. It happens every time his name is mentioned here. I obviously missed the memo.
I read the front page Derren Brown thread just then, and clicked my way to a ding dong Richard Dawkins argument from the past. I tried to work it out by myself, but just like an Australian trying to decipher the Conan-Leno bunfight, it seems one needs some requisent knowledge that I just don't possess. posted to MetaTalk by uncanny hengemanat 11:51 AM on July 7, 2011
Any MeFites check the member number of the people favoriting them – feeling chuffed if they have 4 digits, whereas your eyes might glaze over if they have 6 digits*? posted to MetaTalk by uncanny hengemanat 11:49 AM on June 19, 2011
Looking for a quote from Metafilter comments from less than a month ago. About calling a lawyer a jerk.
I paraphrase badly:
"If you think the defense is wrong then attack the defense. If you think the facts are wrong then argue the facts. If you've got nothing then call the other lawyer a jerk."
