/* Atheist über-boogeymensch */: The blog post doesn't actually imply that[edit]

Owlman, why did you revert my edit? (talk) 00:28, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Use "{{fact}}" instead of "[[citation needed]]". (Template creates link automatically.) I don't believe I've seen the use of "[[dubious]]" on RationalWiki. Read-Write (talk) 06:22, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Wow, not a terrible article, a suggested addition.[edit]

The part on his notable work "The Genealogy of Morality" should address that he thinks the etymological root of good can be traced to what was considered noble and uncommon. I think he also has some excellent statements in reference to atheism and some of the pitfalls he saw atheists falling into (which might be good to show that, though he was an atheist, he was not above criticizing them too). I can find the necessary quotes if these additions would be useful. (talk) 23:28, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Interesting! Please provide your suggestions (with sources) here on the talkpage whenever you feel like it, and we'll take a look and discuss them! Appreciated. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:31, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

I'm thinking[edit]

of writing a book entitled The Gay Science: How Darwinism Created Homosexuality, aimed squarely at the fundie market. Wish me luck? --Scherben (talk) 15:26, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Bertrand Russell's quote[edit]

"Thou goest to woman? Do not forget thy whip!" This bit of silliness supposedly led Bertrand Russell to quip "Nine women out of ten would have got the whip away from him, and he knew it, so he kept away from women."

I don't know how literal the quote is (I don't have the book in English), but if anyone wants to check it, it comes from Russell's "A History of Western Philosophy" (1945).

Get yourself to page 693 (isn't amazon preview great?). --Scherben (talk) 19:49, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
