How this website still exists!

 Brings back memories the time I spent here long ago. 

I am still unconfortable with the Theist badge like before (I'm Agnostic), but looking back on my posts and things I said I dramatically changed my mind on one topic.

I now say that free will does not exist and doens't make logical sense. I changed my mind dramatically about Sam Harris and I follow his podcast "religiously".

This forum looks dead though. Sign of the times we are living I guess... and that we all got older

i'm happy it still exists,

i'm happy it still exists, if nothing else than as an archive of one of the most fruitful mass discussions in internet history. a very few still post here once in a great while. it's still a pipe dream of mine that more will come back here one day, as mainstream social media continually prove to be a stifling and corporately engineered form of discourse. if i were on twitter, i'd start #returntorrs.

 

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

 Brian Sapient has done far

 Brian Sapient has done far more for the skeptic community than anyone can know. He is not your Hitchens or Dawkins, but just like A Phillip Randolph was to MLK, Brian Sapiant is a pilliar of the atheist/skepitic community. 

For every shoulder you know the name of, there are far more that those you know stand on.

Saying this website is dead, is like saying that because the combustion engine existed before Ford, much less, the modern Lamborgini esists. Brian Sapient's efforts are not lost because times have changed. Brian has had a huge impact on skepticism, and society in general.

i mean, one of my old

i mean, one of my old friends still has her old geocities-type site from the early '00s up. this website still exists because brian pays the bills and hasn't taken it down. it's not like websites just disappear because no one visits them.

 The  argument for free

 

The  argument for free speech is upheld by the fact that an avatar dipicts 3 assholes who lead to Stalin. So yea, I am glad this site still exists and can expose galactic stupidity.
