    Mark Hamill and others coming back in Star wars 7...NOOOOOOOO!!!!

    Anytime some atheist does something that some religious group does not agree with it becomes "those atheists." As if we have meetings and stuff. It's christian way of painting us with one brush when really they are the huge monolith. Some guy puts up an anti-religion billboard, has nothing...

    What exactly is atheism? (offshoot of same sex thread)

    I'm an atheist. - I don't belive in god or gods - I don't belong to any atheist group or club or church. It's always funny when you hear people railing against atheist, they speak of us as if we are a club who has meetings every Sunday. I don't hang out with atheist and talk about atheist...

    Well since KM is cobbled together from bits of lots of other styles you could just find out what those are. or pretty much any Combativs program, I really don't see what makes KM so much more special than any other MA Frankenstein other than good marketing and overweight, overconfident housewives.

    Wrestling dropped from 2020 Olympics.

    Ayn Rand's Gospel of Selfishness and Billionaire Empowerment Is Plaguing America

    Too many people name check Ayn with only a nebulous idea of what her philosophy is. She's often turned into a pariah by people who have never read her work who are observing people thinking they are acting in an objective manner.
