RE: [atheists-8] Christian Fundamentalism & The Current State of the Union?

In my experience, someone who is truly intelligent also has decent spelling
and punctuation.  They've encountered situations where it's important to
communicate clearly, without misunderstandings.  And they've generally used
the internet enough to know what "trolling" means, and to avoid behavior
that gets them labeled as a troll.

But that's just my experience.

I'm sorry it has come down to this. I used to have a pretty critical
attitude about spelling and grammar, 'til I figured out that it didn't have
anything to do with intelligence or whatever. I still haven't figured it out
to my satisfaction, but suffice it to say that we are all different, we are
all good or bad at different things, and when I saw myself deriding people
to whom grammar and spelling aren't so important, I started noticing that
they were "better" about other things, things which they very well may be
deriding me for (and yes, I do know that last is not proper English).

Whatever the argument was here (I am completely ignoring it for the moment),
it has nothing to do with spelling and grammar.

Now if Rush Limbaugh is a bad speller, I would just add that to my invective
;+)

I wasn't even counting your incorrect use of 'your' and misspelling of

unintelligent when you take a group of people whose moral behavior can't be
generalized--doctors­--and not only try to assert that they all act according
to some arbitrary standard of behavior (which you alone decided without
presenting any evidence), but you can't even express yourself accurately. ?
To me, your inattention to spelling and grammar only emphasizes your lazy
thinking.? 

And it's "atheist".? 

Remember the "burden of proof" idea should extend to all logical ideas and
allowing excessive emotion or former slights enter your analysis tend cloud
your judgment.

After all, that's how best to milk every last buck. Way to uphold the
hypocratical oath.

I wouldn't worry about it (religious affiliated hospitals); I have a couple

occasionally some doctor's may use religion when talking to a relative about
someone who's just passed, i.e. "He/She is in a better place now, but
sometimes even non-religious doctors do this if they think it will make

I doubt it really effects the quality of care you get in Austin though.

Now would I go to a Mormon hospital in Utah and admit I was agnostic....
No... ?but in Austin I am not really concerned....
