A former 40 year Atheist analyzes Atheism, without resorting to theism, deism, or fantasy. *** If You Don't Value Truth, Then What DO You Value? *** If we say that the sane can be coaxed and persuaded to rationality, and we say that rationality presupposes logic, then what can we say of those who actively reject logic? *** Atheists have an obligation to give reasons in the form of logic and evidence for rejecting Theist theories.

Embryonic Stem Cells to be Bailed Out By Adult Stem Cells?
Why not just use adult IPS cells, and forget the surgeries AND the pin pricks? The focus on embryonic stem cells is misguided. I think maybe the problem lies with the focus on cash: embryonic stem cells can be sold as a pre-packaged product, and for a good amount. Adult stem cells are created for each individual, and the process will likely become a cheaper, localized process which pays little or nothing to the pharmaceutical investors. As always, I vote for IPS; it's far ahead of embryonic stem cells, and the reasons are obvious.
