    [QUOTE=Paschendale;1064770084No, the remarkable thing is that you and others cite that as a negative. You don't seem to have a problem with how quickly this country bucked the idea of having a king, pretty much just on the determination of George Washington. That's an "extreme velocity of change". But it's one that didn't happen in your lifetime, so it doesn't make you uncomfortable.[/QUOTE]

    You may want to lose the unwarranted (and laughably mock-heroic) assumptions. I have been a supporter of SSM for a long time.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    When one asks for evidence, evidence should be provided to prove the point, not silly links that require questioning. Clearly you have no evidence, and are merely mucking all around the point to try to hide the fact that you have ZERO to back your claims. You kinda act like that capt whoever guy.

    Now that's funny. I think many have proved that wrong over the years. I still chuckle when I see that line.

    Think of it as aspirational.

    I'm sorry. I thought that maybe it would be a nice change if people actually used their brains to think instead of just using talking points. And if you actually read up to that post that you quoted you would see that evidence was given. Even if you don't accept it.

    That's a really poor deflection from the reality that you have yet to back your claims.

    He's desperately trying to make people forget that he doesn't have a clue what he's talking about.
