My final thoughts on a recent blog.

There is no one on VH that I consider an enemy or even have any dislike for them.

I thought Cindy's blog was really great and enjoyed the discussion even up to the point when I left.

I certainly had strong views on the issue but I do not recall making any personal insults against anyone I disageed with. I focused my energy on attacking the argument rather than the person.

I know as the hour gets late and towards the time I normally go to bed I have been told my arguments…

Bigotry vs. Disagreement

In PB's video, he made a good point about the distinction between criticizing an idea or a group of people...  If you were to

A) say that the Republicans are mistaken in their ideas of how corporate taxes should be lowered,

then okay, that's debate - you're challenging an idea.  If, however, you say

B) Republicans are stupid or ugly, that's just a bigoted attack.

However, then in the comments of BM's latest video, he seems to…

How can you hope...

 

I have a few questions for some parties engaged in recent religious debates:

 

How can you hope to inform, educate, or reasonably debate your stance whilst acting like a smug steaming asspot about it?  Is it done just for the narrow objective of exchanging high-fives with similarly smug like-minded people as you mutually masturbate each other in the comments section?  Would anyone you are hoping to enlighten with your efforts escape from being disinclined to hear you…

Atheist Discussion on blogtv right now

i.e., what I've had playing in the background this afternoon...

 

The man running the show, in the upper left hand corner, is known as dprjones on Youtube. Top middle is thunderf00t, yes, THE "thunderf00t" :-)

The man in the top right is a Christian countering them. The man directly below him is the current caller, known as Proportional Response on YT, and the man in the far left bottom I…

Being Logical

Following the argument between Pizza Boy and Inmendham has reminded me of the importance of understanding logic, because neither side of the debate is using much logic. Frankly, I don't know as much as I should about formal logic and debating but it is an important topic because much of the debate in our society is based on poor logic. Everyone is out to influence public opinion. Politicians, experts, journalists and opinionated idiots are exerting a great deal of effort to manipulate you. So… Continue

The War Of The Religious

It is funny to see those with faith debate those that have no faith. In any form or place be it internet or in person. DOes these people have nothing better to do than debate each other when no amount of arguing or evidence will change the others perspective. In some cases that might work, but for the most part when you confront someone's beliefs they only become more ardent. That is on both sides of this debate atheist and theists alike. Say your peace on the subject and let it be. The… Continue

All Vlogers great and small. (A long entry)

Hello Vlogospehre,

I have noticed a huge issue in our community here recently has been the inclusion of adult material versus the inclusion of children on the site. This is a difficult debate, on one hand I believe the nature of vlogging and the creation of a great cummunity, would be absolutely enriched by the presence of younger vloggers and their fresh views of the world. On the other hand I also believe, without strict moderation this could lead to a change in content toward's a less… Continue

Politics or religion, anyone?

I recently had a conversation with a friend about the media and the buttons it pushed, which somehow led our conversation to how it has often been noted that one should never discuss politics and religion (especially when you don't know the other people's leanings). My friend said that her boyfriend recently bemoaned the dwindling opportunity for people to do just that without practically coming to blows, and I agree with him. I was raised in a loud Italian family that argued and debated ideas… Continue

Are both VP candidates EVIL? Both deny the right of gay marriage...

Atm I just want to take out one aspect of the VP-debate: The VH topic of perception of gays.



I was confuzzled that BOTH agreed totally that they are against same-sex-marriage.

Didn´t expect that Palin will accept/tolerate gay couples as she did in the debate.

But I was more surprised that Biden also spoke against gay marriage!

(Of course he is for equal rights for gays, but not in a marriage)



So that means, that the democrats also want to go for the… Continue
