Re: What Rules Out Fiction?
You may claim that dogmatic propoganda is harmful, but I would claim the same for its atheistic counterpart.

Oh, right, truth and reality. Yah, that can really hurt if you're not expecting it.

Re: What Rules Out Fiction?
So you are essentially saying that secular humanist perspectives are all truth and reality while all beliefs throughout time have been wrong.

No. What I am saying is that the light of reality destroys religious dogma at every turn.

BTW, secular humanist perspectives vary by the person espousing them and must also be dispassionately examined in the light of reality.

Reality sucks. It just refuses to let bullshit dogmas continue to deceive unchallenged. It is mean and hurtful that way.

Re: What Rules Out Fiction?
Churches were never formed based on evidence-based science or logic, however. And if so, it was based on a common subjective experience which led to the common dogma experienced and accepted.

Sorry, can't help you here, Phat. Reality trumps dogma six ways to Sunday no matter if the dogma was achieved by common experience or, as is known in most cases, was force-fed to a gullible subjugated populus by the priests.

So has EvC now become a scandal rag?

Edited by AZPaul3, : No reason given.


Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.
