    Wow! I had been following the neo-atheist implosion after the elevator incident and was highly amused. Now I'm laughing uproariously! Their community handled that situation -- as well as the overall issue behind it -- very, very poorly and they are now paying the price. Women are starting to avoid their gatherings like the plague. Even their own female superstars!

    Ironically, had this incident happened to a Christian woman at a Christian convention, the neo-atheists would've been all over it in a heartbeat and condemning Christians left and right.

    Yes you're right, the accusations of hypocrisy would have abounded! ...which is weird because atheists tell us that you don't need a higher power to be moral. Life is so confusing.

    Yeah, your apology virtually drips with realism. I tried to get you to see the error of your post but you failed. I suggest a real and heartfelt apology is in order. Perhaps a large slice of humble pie to boot.

    My apology virtually drips with realism, huh? Well it was real. I re-read it and got the lines mixed up. Forgive me I am only human.

    And I can't speak for everyone, but it is possible to have a moral code without having religious beliefs.

    It's possible, yes. Possible vs probable is how a great city grew up in the middle of a desert.
