    Many thanks Alan.

    I want to develop 3 thoughts, and put them down in more detailed form, if I am permitted.

    It fits in with the terms of reference and behaviour with this site. Rather late at night in Sydney, Australia, but I’ll get back with some common sense propositions.

    Ah, many thanks Alan…

    As I say, I just wish to make few points – without being rude to anybody – I suggest that science, and not faith in inexplicable positions, is the proper path of inquiry.

    David, Sydney, Oz! I have 2, maybe 3 points, to enter the debate about rationality and proper reasoning. I hope for the moderators and Richard that I…[Read more]

    To the Moderator….
    How do I open up a discussion point without being part of a squabble with others?
    It is intended to be “on point”, no intention to offend or be rude, but is aimed at making a ‘structured’ argument in favour of common sense and reality. To be clear, where or how on this web site do I start a fresh discussion point without…[Read more]

    • There’s no facility to do that, David. Sorry. Articles are selected for posting, and are then open for discussion (though not “squabbling”, we hope).

      The mods.

    Gulp! I’ll get back in my chair – only for the moment – but I am trying to keep on the rails.

    Apart from Richard’s books and others like his, there are some fascinating (well obvious) books about the origin of bible ‘stories’ and their evolution. If Darwin’s Origin of Species (I have a copy of course) doesn’t make people think, then these very…[Read more]

    Erk Alan – okay, I have made a mistake – but I am new to this program.

    Which is the best chat forum to put down some points? As a just retired lawyer at 56 with years work in the Australian Federal Ct and High Court, I deal with facts and realities.

    I cannot stand ‘sloppy’ reasoning. I have a few points to make in support of rational thinking…[Read more]

    • Hi David

      Welcome to RichardDawkins.net.

      We don’t have a forum as such, but you’re welcome to post relevant comments on any of the articles posted. We do ask that all comments be broadly on the topic of the original article, though we normally take a more relaxed view of what constitutes “on topic” after a certain point in the thread. It’s hard…[Read more]

    Which deity do you believe in?

    You have many choices – tick a box! A measured and careful understanding of the origin of the universe and the evolution of life demolishes religious ‘faiths’ outright! The King James Bible is the greatest joke book ever written!

    If you are serious, you should study the idiotic and manipulated origins of your bible…[Read more]

    I think Derek above may have hit the nail on the head. I dislike the term “atheist”! I carries a suggestion that one is against a position that might be true. On one level, there’s nothing to argue about. Produce your deity, otherwise, it’s no contest!

    I’d prefer the term “realist”! And anybody who can’t accept reality should be described as…[Read more]
