    That's just a stupid derp.

    I've been atheist all my life and I've never once believed anything supernatural. But I know what metaphysics means.

    Transubstantiation is just a big metaphysical wank they want the rubes to believe. Reductio ad Absurdium would show that FSM is a good example of the silliness of it all.

    For something to be metaphysical does not mean it has evidence. I really don't think you know what the word means.

    Scientology may be the one religion that should really be investigated in this country and probably should lose its religious status (as far as being tax exempt at least). No religion should be allowed to sell their material and require essentially NDAs yet still get tax exemption status. And the numerous reports of harassment and abuse by them is far too much to not seriously investigate.

    As ridiculous as the church of the FSM is, who is to say that if we allow people to dictate what is and isn't a valid religion, that they won't go after other religions. I think there are aspects of just about every religion to be ridiculous. I'm sure that most believers on this board view aspects of religions that they don't believe in as being ridiculous. Would it really be in their best interest to have another person's beliefs be called, "Not theology"? Couldn't the same happen to their religion?

    I don't know...just something to think about.
    Plus who is to say that one or multiple people wont start to believe it. There are people who believe in the Matrix, that we are all inside an elaborate computer program.

    Of course not!
    May the force be with you, especially on May the fourth.
