    I guess I've just always felt that if you have something to say, say it. Anything else is a distraction.

    But academics aren't any different than others. Their lives are as messy as everybody else's, and they aren't immune to dumbthink (or anything else) either.

    P.S. Glad you see you around!
    Thinking about this, yeah, I don't want to be irrational. In a very real sense, our brains are all we have and if they don't work ...

    Maybe this man is to blame and not religion itself. Gotta think on that.

    This is funny. Do you think God ignores your hatred if you don't name names?
    “It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass."

    Whatever God is, I'm pretty sure it ignores all of us.

    I'm going to live to regret this, but how did you come to that conclusion?

    Beyond the mere words and opinions of humans, there is nothing whatsoever to suggest otherwise.

    "However, the inspired word clearly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired statements and teachings of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, whose conscience is seared as with a branding iron." 1 Timothy 4:1,2

    God is a concept. Concepts don't ignore us, we talk about them. Concepts are not sentient, they are subject matter for people to talk about, study, etc.

    Jesus assures us that Jehovah God does indeed pay attention to us to the point of knowing intimated details about us...

    "Two sparrows sell for a coin of small value, do they not? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. So have no fear; you are worth more than many sparrows." Matthew 10:29-31

    An angel assured Cornelius that Jehovah God pays attention and remembers us...

    "He said to him: “Your prayers and gifts of mercy have ascended as a remembrance before God." Acts 10:4

    ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been favorably heard, and your gifts of mercy have been remembered before God." Acts 10:31
    "However, the inspired word clearly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired statements and teachings of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, whose conscience is seared as with a branding iron." 1 Timothy 4:1,2

    If you didn't hate religion before Trump, you'll probably rethink that after seeing the Evangelical Right kiss Satan's ass on a daily basis. That, or you'll be one of the fools doing it.
