"I don't like being brief because I don't want to share a belief without explaining why I hold it. Brevity is overrated by our society, which has been programmed to have an attention deficit for anything meaningful. You can't fast…"

Brad Williams replied to Sam K's discussion Thoughts on atheism in the group The Great Debate
"Most of us? Don't you mean a significant fraction of us? You're missing the entire point. We universally don't believe things like that are moral because of animalistic necessity to survive. Of course no human culture condones those…"
