Jul 30 Transient Gadfly commented on Why I'm Done With the Democrats: The Blood Is Too Much.
Charles, whenever I go to the ballot now, I have the option of choosing between a moderate conservative candidate on one hand and a right-wing fringe conservative wacko on the other. The reason this is my choice is because when liberals get disgusted with politics, they stop voting. When conservatives get disgusted with politics, they vote ever more conservative.

Please. Not voting may make you feel better, but it is selfish. It is hurting everyone else.

"So here is my love song, not fancy or fine..."

"Lida Rose" from The Music Man. Gets me every damn time.

I would say that's John Roderick, but he's not going to be in Seattle on Friday (at least not that I'm aware of).
Dec 3, 2012 Transient Gadfly commented on On Purpose In the Universe.
@dwightmoody--correct, he did disclaim, but his disclaimer is based on an antropo-centric answer to that question. Here, for instance, is somebody answering the question quite differently:

I don't think even Tyson would argue these folks aren't going about finding an answer to the question scientifically.
Dec 3, 2012 Transient Gadfly commented on On Purpose In the Universe.
In fact he didn't answer that question. He answered the question "Does the universe have a purpose vis a vis humanity?" To which, indeed, the answer is almost certainly no. On the other hand, the universe may well have a purpose of which we are just some odd side-effect.
