Thanks to www.doctorofdisbelief.com for awarding me an Honorary PhD in Heresy.  I am fueled today by the excellent write up that went along with the award.  Check it out at the site here.

Here's a snippet...

 

 

Brian Sapient is a self-described:

"Pacifist agnostic atheist non-cognitivist freethinking darwin loving scientific treehugger who loves Philly Sports. Proudly led thousands away from religion!"

Mr. Sapient is perhaps responsible for more motivated activist atheists than almost any other single individual in America.

Who among us can forget watching Brian and Kelly O'Connor prove that Ray "the Way of the Master" Comfort was just another ill-informed religious banana-peeling huckster on national broadcast TV? That was a first, and remains a classic. The religious sat up and took notice. Times had changed. Atheists were now well prepared, well spoken and well received by a previously hidden segment of society. 

This single action gave voice and hope to countless atheists that the time for change had arrived. We could be public, proud and assert our rights.

      Congrats Sapient !!! This is what we need more of,I to consider myself a treehugger and when I was young I would say, that for Environmentalist to get things done, they have to come together and be more of a presence in society,this is what the atheist community needs "Come Together"and make your voice heard.

Awesome! Congrats Dr.

Awesome! Congrats Dr. Sapient! That made my day. I love that site, they did such a good job of it. Totally love the idea.

I'm reminded of "Dr." Kent Hovind. This is such a slap in the face to those dime-a-dozen degree mills and the idiots who feed them.

I don't know what else to say. I just f'ing love that site.

Much apropos... you've

Much apropos... you've earned it.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

We'll see how happy he is

We'll see how happy he is after Monday Night.

(Note to self: Duck and cover, Vick is back. PS, Did I think this or type it?)

In all seriousness. Brian has done so much for the atheist community and I do not know how I could cope in my sea of theism where I live without this site. Thank you for everything you have done Brian. You deserve it.
