“It would be nice if you gave UNITS for the particulate matter measurements used in the article. The correct one would be micrograms per cubic meter.”

“Another saga that the Republicans will have to strike from their revisionist account of Reagan's presidency. One wonders if they remember anything about Reagan at all, or if they've made up everything they "know" about the man.”

“We have certainly made enormous strides towards equality this year, but you've got another think coming if you believe it's going to slow down. 15 states may have embraced equality, but civil rights activists aren't going to rest on their laurels until it's 50. You better believe there's a lot more good news heading your way.”

“Paul LePage is the gift that keeps on giving. My all-time favorite quote would have to be his reason for opposing a ban on using plastic containing the endocrine disruptor bisphenol-A in baby bottles:

"The only thing that I’ve heard is if you take a plastic bottle and put it in the microwave and you heat it up, it gives off a chemical similar to estrogen. So the worst case is some women may have little beards."

Well said, governor. Well said.”

“The younger generation is far more accepting than the older one, but even so, anti-LGBT bullying is a lasting problem. It is good that young people who are coming to understand their orientation have examples such as Ms Bello who illustrate that being gay is nothing to be ashamed of or to necessarily keep hidden. I certainly hope that we eventually reach a point where being gay is simply accepted and doesn't need an act of "coming out," but many of our gay brothers and sisters have been forced to hide for so long that the transition will take more time than has so far elapsed. We are getting there, but we're not there yet.”

“The overwhelming majority of atheists are "agnostic atheists," which means that while we recognize that disproving the existence of a god or gods is impossible, we find absolutely no reason to believe that they exist. Theists have defined god as invisible and immeasurable; hence, any hypothesis surrounding the existence of such a being is inherently untestable, and claiming knowledge either way is gravely unscientific.

It is not, however, unscientific to compare the likelihood of various scenarios, and personally, I find the idea that all creation was designed by a rational intellect and put here for the benefit of human beings to be preposterously unlikely. To illustrate what I mean, I might state that being simultaneously bit by a shark, mauled by a bear, and struck by lightning, all while holding a winning Powerball ticket during a full solar eclipse, is a practical certainty when compared to the prospect of a divine creator.”

Ontario Gull on Dec 5, 2013 at 10:20:14

“Empty, I appreciate your estimation of the percentage of "agnostic atheists". It certainly seems to correspond to the commenters who've responded to me.
I personally find the notion that things "just are" to be illogical and unconvincing. But we can agree to disagree. I'm not sure how one can calculate the odds of something like the existence of God; I think it comes down to what one finds persuasive.”

“Revealing one's orientation is hardly "making public one's most intimate sexual practices," so that's a pretty weak argument. Straight relationships are ubiquitous in society and the media, hardly in a sexually explicit way. Daley's revelations are in no way more prurient than any of those examples.

As for acceptance of same-sex relationships, it has positively skyrocketed in this country in the past two decades, and continues to grow, so your argument that peoples' attitudes can't be influenced by the visibility of homosexuality is similarly weak.”

“If you want to do that, then get some people together, form a political party, and start making your case for why society would be improved if that were allowed.

I'm never going to join you, and I'm never going to vote for your proposal, but if you can get the votes, then have at it. That's how democracy works. You have just as much right to the political process as anyone else. Go for it.

Personally, I think "two consenting adults" is a perfectly good definition of marriage, so I'm going to stick with that, thanks.”

“Given that gay people only have equal rights in 15 states, I'd say we're far from that "point in society." Being gay is still massively stigmatized and coming out is still a powerful act of challenging that stigma.

I work on a high school campus and the current generation takes it in stride and accepts all. However, I see your point in regards to the equal rights aspect and the fact that there are those in society/government who still wish to restrict/prevent them.”
