    What are your thoughts on Cosby?

    Do you think it's possible that he's guilty of raping women?

    Or is he a victim of false allegations?

    Now I know there's the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing - but I'm asking what your gut feel is regarding this stuff.
    Anything is possible.He could be a rapist or he could be a victim of false allegations.Just because a group of people claim something doesn't make it true. As famous as Bill Cosby is I seriously doubt he would have a problem getting women, but then again a famous boxer went to prison for rape(but many people have doubts over whether or not is was rape or consensual sex). If these women are lying hopefully they are exposed for being liars and pay severely. If Cosby is guilty hopefully he gets the book thrown at him.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You're right. But you have to remember, it makes future accusers who may be lying say "Look! A pattern!", adding theoretical credibility to their (false) claims.

    I'm not saying he did or didn't rape these women but I'm also cautious about ruining a man's life based on no evidence, just because a handful of women claim it's so. Remember, this is the same country that made the Kardashians celebrities and where women write love letters to the Night Stalker in prison, and go for conjugal visits. There are a lot of crazies out there.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but he had an affair and had a child from that affair, and has said some pretty strange things in the past several yrs. I don't "want" to believe it but my gut screams he's guilty of more than flirtation.

    This thread reminds me of the old National Enquirer and Star message boards.

    I think he's probably a rapist. His accusers have given me no reason to doubt them and it seems like a somewhat well-known thing among some comics.

    People do not rape others because they have a hard time getting women. They rape because they desire something other than consensual sex.

    Bill Cosby? Bill Cosby? If this is true, then the only way you could top this is if you told me Mr. Rogers was the Zodiac Killer.

    I have to admit the accusers sound very credible.

    A piece of my inner child has died.

    Wow- this is the first I've heard of, or read about it, at all. I never knew about any earlier allegations. It comes as a huge surprise to me, and right now, I don't have a gut feeling about it either way. I'm still too surprised for it to have rolled around in my mind, or for any oddities to have occurred to me in my memory banks. I truly hope there is nothing to it, but crazier things have happened.

    They may or may not be true.

    There is not enough evidence either way.

    Another reason why fornication should be illegal.
