It's that time again when Vicky and I take a stand against cancer. Please support our fund raising efforts (which we are getting our heads shaved again for the 5th straight year) in support of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center to help fight this terrible disease that affects so many. Thank you for your support. http://www.bald-is-beautiful.org/faf/search/searchTeamPart.asp?ievent=1111426&lis=1&kntae1111426=15614D597A2D4165AF0D19434B3C11CF&team=6281538

What do you tell gun fans when they say we need guns to protect ourselves? This. http://andrewriggio.com/2015/03/07/we-need-guns-to-protect-ourselves/
"We need guns to protect ourselves," is the reason gun enthusiasts most often cite when the subject of gun control comes up. They want protection from criminals, protection from the government, and...

7 things opponents of marriage equality need to know.
Andrew Riggio originally shared:
 
A federal judge struck down South Carolina’s ban one same-sex marriage today. I read about stuff like that and think, “Good! Why is this even still an issue any more?” The people who object to it strike me as bigots, hateful people so caught up in…

I get tired of explaining to people why "You can't prove there's no god" is an illogical and useless thing to say. I wrote a blog update so I can just refer people to it when I hear or see that statement to save myself time. Let me know what you think.
"You can't prove there's no God," is one of the many illogical rallying cries of the religious.  It's usually said right after a non-believer says something like, "There's no proof your god or godd...

I do enjoy being much smarter than average, yes, but there are still people standard deviations smarter than myself.

It gets frustrating when I try to explain what I think of as simple ideas to people, and I expect them to have the insight and honesty to admit they were wrong, and they just don't.

I find it pretty easy to accept when someone much more intelligent than me explains why I'm wrong on some question, its hard to empathize with people who don't, and who just start insulting people, repeating the same debunked arguments, attacking the same straw men and actually, sincerely believing they are holding their own in a debate.

My recent blog post on why mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients is bigotry. http://andrewriggio.com/2015/03/07/drug-testing-welfare-recipients-is-bigotry/
Drug testing welfare recipients is bigotry. If you listen to hard-core, right-wing pundits you might not think so but part of what those conservative mouthpieces do is hide the truth in favor of pr...
