I got an e-mail from someone stating that I missed the point of Abbie and PZ’s posts, but no, I fully gathered that it was directed at the notion we get more pissed off about Maher’s blatant ignorance of the science and anti-vaccine stance than his blatant sexism. Well, this kind of misses the point in that quite a few of the atheists I know don’t pay much attention to Maher. He’s more or less like the kid that says a few occasional things which are either incredibly profound or incredibly shallow. In the context of the rest of his statements, though, it’s probably shallow.
*note: anyone that has read the posts which inspire me to write something should know that I will rarely cover something previously discussed. I may go off on tangents and discuss areas which are poorly covered by the article or blog or comment or video. I may also bitch about the inaccurate parts of these sources of inspiration. Rarely will I repeat the same thing, it’s already been stated, why repeat it?
