Re: Brain function
Let's look at speaking in tongues.
I think the area of the brain that causes people to speak in tongues is the same one that is used when creationist compose incoherent word-salad rants. Writing in tongue if you will.
Now I will moderate myself....

Re: Support
I've been guilty of disagreeing with other theists here almost as much as I do with the atheists and evolutionists.
Nothing wrong with that, I consider it to be the sign that your mind is working.
That's going to change on my part. It's difficult debating 8 different people at a time.
So you are going to support other theist even if you DON'T agree with them? Brilliant!
I hope more theists/deists can start supporting eachother like the rest of the members here do. Im going too. Atleast we can try to find some common ground with one another.
I don't think you are going to find much common ground amongst all the different religions. Look at all the conflict and wars it has caused throughout history.
I would also like to see the theists support each other, though I doubt it will happen.

Only three days for calling a mod/member and more importantly a woman the C-Word? Three days?
Im thinking the dude should be banned from the site permanently. After being here so long and knowing the rules to actually take the time to think it out, type it an submit it and proceed to call a woman that on here looks bad for the site wheather he is an evolutionist or creationist.
Maybe Percy or Moose can adjust this accordingly.
{Content hidden - The "Public Record" forum and the "Suspensions and Bannings" topic are not places for discussion, even by admins (non-admins can't post in the "PR" topics). This discussion should go to the "Whine List" topic (public) or to a topic in the "Private Administration Forum" (which non-admins can't even see). And this is not a matter of if I agree or disagree with the hidden content. - Adminnemooseus
Some things are just better handled with a PM or two, Seeing a moderator being moderated for off-topic post probably makes a few of us wonder as to C77s ability to make a competent mod.
I hope he learns from this and goes on to do a fine job, but I have doubts.

I see no difference in whether the person getting cussed is a woman or a moderator or an elderly preacher, we are all equal. If anyone should be outraged, and put it out publicly, it should be PD.
