65. Moderators, as the originator of this most popular thread on this forum, Let's LOCK this thread!!
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 02:59 PM by MarkCharles
It has proved, beyond my wildest imagining, that my somewhat provocative statements, my somewhat foolish statements, provoke more emotional responses than actual logical thought. Comparing true religious believers to Republican believers in the mythology of tax-less American good fortune was a silly and pointless (albeit reasonable) comparison.

Far be it from me to encourage lack of logical thought, but I seem to have stepped into a hornet's nest here. A nest where the emotions are aimed to sting at fellow DU members, who, for whatever reasons, or lack thereof, believe one way or another.

Fine with me if you moderators lock this thread away.

I'd rather discuss religion from a "rational" perspective, or simply allow believers their own opportunity to invent accusations against people who don't believe as they do. Religions versus atheism, a bad idea, I admit.
