Simply Brilliant! [#438]

To Whom it May Concern:
    I wanted to write and say how impressed I am with your Web site,
http://www.whywontgodhealamputees.com. You make a strong case for reason,
both for the logic and clarity your arguments convey.
    For too long, religious superstition has held sway. In ancient times,
humanity lacked the level of knowledge to understand, but in the 21st
century, there is no excuse to continue to believe these disproven ideas.
   Unfortunately, people seem to prefer their religious delusions that tell
them what they want to hear, rather than the bedrock of scientific
principles. We've all had debates with believers and it's like talking to
the wall. They totally disregard the evidence.
   Thank you for saying what needs to be said and for having the courage to
take a stand, despite the unpopularity of these views. You are simply
brilliant!


Sincerely,
[Name]

I didn't make the videos, but they are good ... aren't they?

If you haven't seen them yet, we made a list of other folks to consider taking a look at on YouTube;

...also, if you want to join the forums consider doing so.  We'd like to have more rational people here!  (I'm assuming you aren't one of those new-age quantum soul people. [plants toung firmly in cheek and then prays to Zeus])

Short, sweet, and to the point... I love it.

Come by forums and join up. We would love to have some more rational people here.
