    Reading comprehension, give it a shot.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You made an equivocal statement of fact, not an opinion. A fact for which you have yet to provide substantiation.

    Personally, I make every effort to check such things out before I make my "memories" public, but that's just me.

    Minding your own business, give it a shot.

    I think you do not understand the meaning of the word fact.

    I think I remember jackalope saying "he's" a "she".

    Which, just like jackalope's claim, is an assertion of fact--a claim, if you will, that it is true.

    Reading comprehension is so very helpful, is it not?

    Interesting we don't have a single "no" vote despite the significant number of birthers here. You'd think they'd vote "no" based on their beliefs.

    There are many things to challenge and criticize the President over. The amount of effort they put into this futile and illogical snipe hunt certainly makes them look unreasonable and unhinged.

    A point of order. When you are asked a question such as "is Rush Limbaugh a brither?", and you start your answer off with "yes" then you have given a definitive answer in the affirmative. The rest of your sentence is merely a vague reference as to how you came to your conclusion.

    A definitive answer like that indicates you believe this to be fact, otherwise you would have simply said "I'm not sure" or "I'm uncertain," something other than "yes." I'm not trying to bust balls here or be nasty, I just think you should choose your words a bit more carefully. Lightning rod statement will attract lightning strikes you know?
