Religion substitutes cognition with belief.

Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved."

Re: Bolton = the very best!
atheism is a cognitive disability

You’ll be able to provide some evidence for that statement then ?

Or is it another WAA (Wild Ass Assertion).

[Quite liking the WAA acronym - if you read it as a word, it has an appropriate ring to it].


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Christians lie. Christians are evil. If there were to truly be a devil named Satan he would be a devout Christian with a MAGA hat waving the stars-and-bars.

a Servant of Christ writes:

the president is supposed to represent all voters, not the ones that voted for him alone.


That's what I said.

a Servant of Christ writes:

trump appeals to the religious right. that's who he caters to.


That's where he goes wrong. As you said yourself, he SHOULD be representing ALL of the voters. Instead, he only serves his own interests (re-election).

Re: Bolton = the very best!
I got a cheer from our long lost Tanypteryx. This is good,

Welcome back, Tany. You've been missed.

It's like old home week around here. First Straggler jumps back in with both feet then Tany shows up spreading cheers around.

Life is good.

Re: Bolton = the very best!
Are Atheists Genetically Damaged?

You didn't read the article did you. The answer was no.

Interesting, though, there are links in that article to real scientific studies showing atheists to be much more intelligent than religionists which your own submissions here appear to bear out.

You do realise that the article is taking the piss out of the paper, don’t you ?

Re: Gosharootie, I'm surprised
There is another crack in that cranial pot.

He tampered with witnesses. He lied under oath. He lead the republican dirty tricks squad spreading lies and disinformation, He published a picture of a federal judge with crosshairs on her,

Is there an evil you do not support?

Re: Gosharootie, I'm surprised
This is an interesting quotation from Churchill:

Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…

I have no doubt that the US and the UK democratic systems play host to a level of corruption and venality which is repugnant. And candidates get selected by vested interests more than by the people.

But you make the mistake of thinking that because Trump exists outside this system, he is amazing. And that means you have to stick your fingers in your ears, shout "lalalalalala" and pretend that all of the evil, the lies, the hatred, the incompetence and the sheer stupidity that vomits out of his mouth are "false news".

Just because democracy is not perfect, does not mean that evil dictatorship is better.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

That right there alone is the most heinous crime ever committed against the United States of America.

He should be hung and drawn and quartered, and whipped and boiled until he’d had enough. And then it should be done again. And when it was finished we should take all the little bits and jump on them.**
