I only trust atheists in positions requiring scientific understanding.

Why not trust people who have scientific understanding in positions requiring scientific understanding?

So, you wouldn't have hired Einstein if you were running the Princeton Advanced Studies institute back in the day?

Faith and reason is not as simple as this.

Einstein was an atheist. Anyone who argues otherwise is like those Republicans that argue evolution is only a theory.

Childish superstition: Einstein's letter makes view of religion relatively clear

...while they believe in an invisible being or some non theistic supernatural belief with no proof like reincarnation or karma? That means they are bad scientists. No thanks.

So you wouldn't trust Isaac Newton or Gregor Mendel, therefore you must reject everything based on calculus or genetic biology.

Fuck no. Just like I would not trust Hypocrites. Science moves on. Newton had no clue about the theory of relativity for example and Mendel knew nothing about DNA and Hypocrites had no idea about the germ theory of medicine.

That is what you religious people don't get. These were men of their eras and thus adopted to their eras.

If Newton and Mendel were born in post WW2 Europe they would in probability be just as non-religious or atheistic as any other European.

My dad is a Presbyterian and a scientist for the FDA so I am sure he appreciates your comments...

I can't see where the video "condones premarital sex" so much as "acknowledges that people are going to do it anyway, so they should still take safety precautions."

And I find it highly amusing that snotty atheists are just as stupid as bigoted fundies WRT insisting that religion & science are mutually exclusive.

Religion is proof by no proof.

Back Story of Yasiel Puig’s Journey to America Should Concern Dodgers

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.

Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

When Evangelicals Were Pro-Choice - GOPlifer
Jamelle Bouie had a great piece at Slate last week explaining the long strange journey of Protestant Evangelicals from pressing for the expansion of abortion rights to vehement opposition to nearly every aspect of women's reproductive choices. Bouie correctly identifies the trend, but he misses an important pivot point that calls the rest of his analysis into question. Bouie correctly points out that ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
