    Is everyone supposed to give up their individuality so that they can more like you and your buddies?"
    Are you guys part of the "Borg Collective"?
    Are you guys going to rampage throughout this forum screaming out "Resistance is Futile!You will all be Assimulated!"?

    Perhaps even more interesting is that it is precisely the inability of dogs and cats to form theological concepts of any sort that allows them this perception.

    The price we paid for eating from the Tree of Knowledge was that a veil was thrown over own such perception. Now, most of us have to take it on faith that G-d exists.
    Owning a dog and having been owned by several cats, I'm inclined to think you might just be correct. I doubt many religious leaders would agree, but it does make sense.

    If you disagree with Navy pride on anything, including how Socialist Healthcare known as TRICARE needs to be less Socialist, you're a leftist. I'll let you ponder just how insane that is.
    Anything more conservative than him is venuring into fascist territory.

    Who asked the question? Hmmm? NP right? Which God do you think he means? Anyone who needs to analyze that is being willfully ignorant.

    If Congress as a whole wants to indulge in fantasies then at least that one is more constructive than most of their fantasies. When we start paying bureaucrats by the hour to indulge in such games that's where I draw the line.

    The Ten Commandments are there as laws, not as Christian laws - or aren't you aware that Moses was not a Christian.

    I don't say 'Under God' when I pledge. I once heard someone recite it 'Under Satan'. Does that make you mad?


    As for it being on our money, I think that's a mistake because it's a major violation of church and state to continue printing it that way - but the Fed might do it for another reason. They've talked about changing the color and the world-wide polls always come back to keep the Greenback. Maybe 'In God We Trust' is the same kind of issue.
    In passing: There is no conflict to what I personally believe about God. I sometimes do trust in what I call 'God'.

    Navy Pride is not Conservative. Navy Pride is a Republican. Two very different things.

    I think what he's trying to bring up is what has been brought up about this poll many times over the past 38 pages. The question is asking if you believe in god, simply put. However, NP turns around and uses the "yes" answers as "those who believe in the christian god". It was an ambiguously phrased question that he is using to his specific definition.

    And if the poll goes against him, he finds some way to rationalize it so that hie own preconceived notions are not unduly shaken. He knows what he's shooting for before he posts and damn it, he's going to get it whether it exists or not!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Well that seems to be an underlying theme with christianity, doesn't it?

    With the more fanatical elements thereof, yes. There are plenty of good people out there who are Christians, most of the liberal variety, but there are a lot of fanatical wingnuts as well who are right whether they are right or wrong.
