You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

My friend Adam Lee has just moved his blog Daylight Atheism to Patheos (from Big Think), so update your book and say hello
Hemant Mehta is the editor of Friendly Atheist, appears on the Atheist Voice channel on YouTube, and co-hosts the uniquely-named Friendly Atheist Podcast. You can read much more about him here.
Adam Lee is one of the poorest excuses for a human and one of the worst things to happen to atheists since A+ reared its ugly, hypocritical and misandrist head.
Sorry, I will not welcome Adam anywhere. In fact, Adam should do us all a favor and go away.
I don’t know anything about Adam, but from the comments I’ve seen from Cecelia so far, I’m looking forward to checking him out.
Atta boy, line up and remain manipulated.
You mean line up in the “check for yourself” queue rather than the “just do what Cecelia says” queue?
Your Streisand effect is working better and better. Now I’m really intrigued to see what you don’t think I should see.
Exactly, Adam manipulates the sheeple because they never heard of him. That’s how he accomplishes both his plans AND his schemes!!!!
It all makes perfect sense.
I suspect Cecilia might be an old troll who keeps having to change his name as he keeps getting banned.
I had the same thought. And I know it sounds like “damned if you do damned if you don’t” but when s/he ignored my feeler on it, it didn’t help. If he is a sock puppet, he went to a little more work to create a back story this time. And he’s trying really hard to keep down his ragegasms, but they still keep popping out.
What makes you think that way?
“In fact, Adam should do us all a favor and go away.”
Funny, I was thinking the same about you.
Whatever happened to “citation please”? Why would someone named “Cecelia” complain about misandry? Could you be more specific? Rich Wilson is right, you’re only making me curious.
Thanks for the ranty nutty MRA endorsement of Adam
“Adam Lee is one of the poorest excuses for a human…”
Adam is a personal friend of mine and nothing could be further from the truth. Disagree with his views by all means but cut out the slander
Tell us what you really think, Cecelia! lol With an awesome review like that, I have to check it out now!
Are statistics available as to how many people read the various Patheos Blogs? Or is that “confidential”?
I used to read Adam when at his previous site, but stopped when he moved to Big Think. I didn’t like the format of the pages. So, I’m glad he’s here now. He offers very thoughtful pieces and I don’t understand where Cecelia is coming from.
I didn’t stop reading him when he moved, but I stopped reading most of the comments. I still like his old site’s format much better.
Adam Lee is an ideologue who argues for purity. He puts up petitions to demand otherwise decent folks comply with his wishes for public expressions of adherence to his views. That behavior of Adam’s is at odds with reason (which balances factors and derives conclusions from the evidence on hand). That he is a purist for feminism doesn’t diminish the fact that he is an anti-rational purist.
I’ve mixed feelings about my complaint. I’ll now get called names and otherwise get negged on my comments by his adherents. They are a tribe. On the other hand, I somewhat welcome the idea that the usually smart and reasonable commentors here at FA will read his stuff and notice Adam’s lack of nuance.
Well maybe you can back up your assertions with a link or two.
I’m sure you’re familiar with google but ok.
I would have walked out on this speech: http://bigthink.com/daylight-atheism/video-my-speech-at-the-2012-secular-student-alliance-convention
His petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/the-leaders-of-atheist-skeptical-and-secular-groups-support-feminism-and-diversity-in-the-secular-community?utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=url_share&utm_campaign=url_share_before_sign
Further comments on the petition: http://freethoughtblogs.com/dispatches/2013/01/11/please-sign-adam-lees-petition/
I’m sure that having played the “citation please” card that you’ll not also play the “go back to 101″ card.
As I’m open to revising my view, my ask for you is this; find me evidence of Adam showing sympathy or empathy or asking for moderate replies to anyone with whom he disagrees.
Were he Greta Christina, I’d need only look back 2-3 days. I read Adam for months (I don’t think I form my views on one-off events and seek out folks I disagree with to broaden my exposure to different arguments) and never saw it. He may have changed in the last 5 months but given the petition, I doubt it.
I’d argue for my conclusions but am interested in folks drawing their own conclusions.
Thank for the links. I had no idea. Imagine, a petition requesting people to respect feminism and diversity. Unbelievable and frightening, that’s how Stalin got started. Thank god we have people like Thunderfoot with his bilious lunatic lie and hate filled rants to balance him out.
I watched his SSA speech last night at the urging of Cecelia, so I’m working on memory here, but I’m struggling to remember anything walk-out-worthy in it. It ended a bit glib and trite IMO, but certainly nothing I’d walk out on. I don’t mean to make you go back and watch something you disliked that much, but if you happen to recall, at what moment did you turn the video off in disgust?
