Try the new website at www.christthinker.org. I have been working on this site for the past two months. I believe it is at least 1,000 times better than the current site! Also, it links to the Christ Thinker Flipboard page!
What was the original rationale for having separate restrooms for males and females?
I made a few “guesses” regarding the reason we have public toilets segregated by gender. Of course, the rationale that “it has always been that way” is insufficient and must be removed in order to make a bias-free assessment. Furthermore, religious arguments including “modesty” in showing the naked body should be discounted as I have noticed that most people look better with their clothes on, thus, “modesty” usually isn’t an issue. My guesses are as follows:
In 1980, the average CEO made about 50 times what the average worker did. See CEO Pay Graph. In 2012, the average CEO pay was 380 times that of the average worker according to this story from ABC News. Other sources show a higher gap. See the following link, which compares the income gap in the United States with that of other countries: Income Gap Comparison. This shows the gap of only 20-1 in Canada and 47-1 in Mexico. Frankly, I am fine with 50-1. My problem is when the number gets higher.

See this article for Time Magazine’s “science” regarding homosexuality. In the article, Time takes this position:
Why is gay conversion therapy illegal in California and New Jersey for minors, while sexual reassignment therapy legal for minors?
In essence, a therapy to resist a predisposition (homosexuality) is illegal. Gay conversion therapy is reversible. Sexual reassignment therapy that is irreversible and affects a child both physically and mentally is legal and protected. This doesn’t make any sense at all! See this California law that protects the rights of “transgendered” as early as kindergarten! I doubt most kindergarten age children even have a good idea what “gender” is!
I found this interesting article on sugar addiction. It seems that sugar has a reward and drop off effect similar to cigarettes. Sex has a similar effect in that the physical part reaches a climax and then quickly drops off – many go to sleep immediately after sex. Further evidence of the quick reward and burnout of sex is from a piece I watched on 60 Minutes a few years ago. 60 Minutes showed that hotel chains had huge revenues from in-room pornography. The average time watching a porn movie was shown to be about 14 minutes which comes to about a dollar a minute paid for the movie. So, we have three different activities that have some level of addiction involved.
The Atheist Pizza is quite simple; it has only one topping; tomato sauce. Any more toppings might cause disagreements, therefore, it is best to eliminate the choices.
Sorry KKK, you will not like this post.
See this study for evidence of our subconscious racism. From observations of my pet dogs and cats, I am convinced that racism is a very natural condition. The phrase, “bird of a feather flock together” is a good expression of my natural belief in racism.
