“When are women going to get it through their heads that you DO NOT marry a good looking man. Date good looking guys, have lots of fun with them, party with them, sex them up but don't marry them. When you are ready for a SERIOUS commitment, you need to lower those standards and marry an average looking guy. Sorry ladies, I know it hurts to hear that, but it's just the way it is.”
“This judgment made news because it was rendered against a branch of the Tea Party (a very high profile political organization) for a substantial amount of money. Were you not so intellectually deficient and more tuned-in as to how the world works you would have never posted such a ridiculous statement. Save the desperate conspiracy theories and whining for those who don't know better!”
“Christianity remains a religion that promotes and encourages bigotry and intolerance. So according to you, just because Christian tenets don't mandate the beating of women who are not virgins then I should simply ignore it and tip toe around it?? You ever consider a career in comedy because you are a really funny guy, you know that!”
“And to save a few jobs we should simply look away, keep quiet, and let intolerance, and bigotry continue unchecked?? In order to make a difference, in order to initiate change for the better sacrifices must sometimes be made, read your history!! This is an opportunity with far more at stake than just a few minimum wage jobs!”
“You do realize that there is a BIG difference between trying to drive someone out of business and simply PROTESTING their business, right?? I would hardly characterize this as an all out effort to eliminate this particular business. LOL...that's some imagination you got there! And the comparison to Nazis burning books, wow, quite a stretch there. And since you brought it up, no Fred, I don't want to live in a country that goes to those extremes but It sure would be nice to live in one that recognizes and exposes bigotry and intolerance when it rears its ugly head, as it has here.”
“Amazing how many people flocked to these stores to stand in long lines, in the heat, just to advertise their bigotry and intolerance. And the real kicker is, they use an archaic book contrived by Middle Eastern Bedouin savages from CENTURIES past to justify these beliefs. These are truly sad pathetic people!”
“ Your statement does suggest that because some "credentialed" people agree that the missions were faked then this somehow lends more credibility, truth, and veracity to hoaxer claims. Therefore this statement remains logically fallacious. And please don't try to play some silly semantics game in an effort to deny this, your statement is quite clear, flawed, and dishonest.
And since when is inquiring why a panel of EXPERTS, assembled as a result of a majority consensus, based on peer review, has not come forward to back hoaxer claims considered a "logical fallacy??" Seriously, if you are going to invoke logic, and critique the use of said logic by others, you REALLY need to bone up on how to interpret and apply it first. ”
“I see this work as signifying the death of Christianity. I hope it comes to pass. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to see the belief system disappear entirely, I just want to see the number of adherents drop to the point where Christianity is no longer capable of influencing our government representatives. Perhaps not in my life time but in a hundred years, maybe. We can only hope.”

“Eventually this will come to pass. A hundred years ago almost everyone lived in fear and would never stand up to the church. In these modern times more and more people are waking up each day.”

“You can't blame Christianity for the actions of our elected officials. What if they're Jewish or Muslim or Buddhist or any other of the many different religions we have in this country. If you don't like what your elected official is doing then vote him/her out. That's YOUR job as a constituent.”

“You want to put an end to religions influencing our government representatives. Stop giving religions federal money for anything. most of Catholic Charities funding (60%) comes from the US government. They shouldn’t be getting any federal money period.
We also need to end religions free ride in this country. We should be taxing religions and end tax deductible deduction donations to religions, also end clergy tax free parsonage allowances and tightly regulate all religions. The moment one of them gets even slightly involved in politics or government business, the government should step in and confiscate all their property. Unlike you I very much want to see and end to Christianity and all organized religions, they are all nonsense and lies. Organized religions should be put on trial for the attempted assassination of common sense. All gods are myths that lying theist created.”
“EXACTLY! Those are the 3 major reasons major reasons we have't bothered going back. This is simple fact based deductive reasoning and critical thought. You get it! Too bad I can't say the same for the other guy. ”
“Please familiarize yourself with a term known as "peer review." In this context it would simply mean that a consensus of MANY (scientists, researchers, experts techs etc.) agree that something is true and they can provide evidence to support this claim. In the nearly 40 years since the last mission, NEVER has a panel of experts gathered at a news conference to announce, to the world, that "evidence" exists that proves the Apollo missions were faked, NEVER!! No worldwide news headlines, NOTHING! Surely if the so called evidence you hoaxers have presented, over the years, held any real weight or veracity, whatsoever, you would have won this silly thing long ago! And don't get me started on logical fallacies. You commit one right out of the gate when you claim that "there are many people with sterling credentials who believe the moon landings to be a hoax." This statement is a blatant "Appeal to Authority." So far you have ZERO credibility my friend so accusing others of ad hominem and straw manning only makes you look more the fool!”

“I didn't say that "the moon landings are a hoax because experts say so." I said, to non-believers, that "you are not alone; some credentialed folks agree with you." Not much of an appeal to authority. I'll plead guilty, though, rather than endure a trial.
However, your "NEVER has a panel of experts..." screed reeks of appeal to authority, doesn't it? Glass houses and stones.
Look at the pictures I've posted. Make your own judgement.”
“Please research WHY there appear to be shadow and light anomalies in the Apollo footage. Don't just rely on moon landing hoax articles and youtube videos but review the arguments that counter these hoax claims as well. Had you done this, and you are capable of some critical thought, you would have never been compelled to make this post.”

“I study moon photos. These are my observations. They may be the observations of others as well.
You can't explain away the photos. There is no flag shadow here.”
“The shadow argument is one of the first and oldest in the moon hoax arsenal and perhaps the weakest. It has been debunked time and again. And to ask "Why haven't we gone back?" and not be able to provide an honest answer PROVES just how ignorant and bias you are when it comes to this issue. Those of us who believe the landings did indeed happen can provide hundreds if not thousands of hours of film footage to support our claims. You hoaxers can only generate conjecture and 99.9% of all Apollo moon landing hoax claims have been cogently debunked!! It's like a ball game. You guys keep pitching these silly claims at us and we keep knocking them out of the park!”

“And of course, the obvious answer to "why haven't we gone back?" is (a) it's tremendously expensive, (b) it's dangerous, and (c) there's no compelling reason to do so.”
“Loyalty is exactly what Cheney is expressing when he criticizes Palin. She is inept and unqualified for any serious leadership role and would be a liability to any party whether democrat or republican. And this is not only an issue of "loyalty" but of simple "honesty."”
Oh, you mean the instilling of good moralistic ideals such as respect, compassion, and tolerance for your fellow man, at an early age. Well, I would rather have kids indoctrinated with these ideals vs the perverted, deluded, archaic, and absurd ideals I'm sure you adhere to.”
