Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
This is my first EvC message, all the way back in 2001!!!

I'm pretty happy with it. I've become a bit more concise and interesting as a writer, but basically am still saying the same things to Creationists a decade later.


'Explanations like "God won't be tested by scientific studies" but local yokels can figure it out just by staying aware of what's going on have no rational basis whatsoever.' -Percy

"What we need is not the will to believe but the will to find out." - Bertrand Russell

"Man's greatest asset is the unsettled mind." - Isaac Asimov

"We not only believe what we see, to some extent we see what we believe
...The implications of our beliefs are frightening." - Richard Gregory

OK, I have been back to EVC for only a few hours and already I'm finding myself needing to call out the sexist language.

dick/prick = jerk, or forceful

pussy = weak/cowardly

Any heterosexual man who uses pussy as a synonym for "weak" or "cowardly" clearly has no familiarity with the things.

Re: Scaredy cats.
but the association of the cat with its tail between its legs with cowardice goes back much further than that.

Frightened cats don't put their tails between their legs; dogs do.

Frightened cats slink low to the ground, and put their tails straight behind them.
