    Best of luck with that.


    I draw strength from myself and the other real human beings in my life. I find real people much more responsive.

    But at any rate, I notice you have ignored the meat of the argument yet again, as you have nothing but your superstition and ignorance to defend yourself with.

    What's hate-filled about talking to real people? I don't get it.

    Are you commenting on my pointing out that you're not responding to anything I've said? That's not "hate" either. I'm just making sure you don't think you're getting away with all your nonsense distractions.

    Now who is on the school board ("the system") is a different question.
    Seriously, that's not what modern self-identified liberals are like. They are anything but tolerant of different views the more "liberal" they get. It's strictly their way or the highway. They also don't rely on facts or logic but on pure emotion. That's why so many liberal positions are based on feelings, not wanting people to feel bad, not wanting people to be unhappy, etc. That's where the silly "everyone gets a trophy just for showing up" nonsense and the overemphasis on self-esteem comes from. In my experience, modern liberals are nothing whatsoever like what you describe.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I don't know, but it's probably run by people who know that 'ran' is the past tense.

    You hate religion with a passion. Just wondering where they came from

    Because I have faith? Sorry I don't make apologies for that.

    Not really. I hate the promotion of anti-reality teaching, because it prevents children from growing up to do the things that have made your life so good, again, despite yourself.

    Some of those people who have done all that good work have remained religious. Admittedly, many don't -- gaining knowledge and understanding of the world tends to have that affect.

    Where'd it come from? Knowledge of history, and seeing how often dogmatism of all sorts has killed people and constrained humanity from growing.

    I think you just hate people who don't pat your head and pretend your superstition is just as valid as reality-based fact.
