    IMO, animism is a natural outgrowth of basic animal cognition, and not just something that evolved in humans. Brains evolved in nervous systems as a mechanism for recording experiences and using...

    Since virgin births caused by randy gods (see Miraculous Births) was a common theme in Greek and Roman mythology, not to mention other contemporary religions, why would this be a bizarre claim? It...

    The idea that morality derives from authority starts in childhood, and perhaps it remains the dominant idea for most people throughout their lives. So religious authorities then stand in loco...

    This is a nonsensical argument. Unemployment skyrocketed at the end of Bush's term, when the US economy tanked and dragged the rest of the world down with it. Obama reversed that, with the peak...

    The prosecutors wanted him locked up immediately, which, IMO, would have been appropriate, given all his antics during the trial. However, the judge treated him like the first time offender that he...
