Secular Right | Reality & Reason



12 Questions for Derb (cont.)

Hoo-ee, the commentators at are even more rude and moronic than P.Z. Myers’, which I would not have thought possible. Is it naïve of me to be surprised?

Though at least screens out the f-word.

    “Is it naïve of me to be surprised?”

    Of course. Polemicists and curmudgeons should never be surprised.

    Even I, who think you’re the bee’s knees, wondered if you should have used the word “skepticism” rather than pessimism.

    Re Mr. Derb’s 12 answers: Hmm, I didn’t notice all that many religious types commenting here. Seems that most are fervent atheists.

    If secular conservatives are people who “who hate the ever-growing federal power and the sight of our liberties withering away,” then don’t they already have a home without Secular Right? They’ve got the Libertarian Party and Ron Paul. Unless being conservative means something different.

    The beatdown from the idiot commentators is nothing compared to the ass-kicking Bruce gave you.

    If you think PZ Myers is an ass, just look up his discussion of HBD. He’s written about it in regards to Larry Summers and Sailer’s Katrina piece. This guy spends so much of his life advocating for evolution, yet he thinks it magically stopped 100,000 the second we left Africa. Hilarious that a professional scientist, and active anti-creationist voice, is actually one of them himself.

    And his liberalism in general is just loony.

    Great interview Derb! Can’t wait for the book to come out. It’s a shame The Economist won’t interview the people behind

    But can’t wait for your book!

    Are you going to comment on the Skip Gates arrest?
