Another "game". Rate the previous user's signature.

Seppuku's sig is poignant for rational people, but for the irrationals it is patently wrong. Superstitious people know more about things that not cannot be studied because they don't exist, than rational people know about the rest of the world.

We have hundreds of times more Priests, preachers and rabbis than scientists ---UNFORTUNATELY---

6/10, although I agree with the sentiment.
Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.

^^^That is a solid eight out of ten.  One of our classic arguments we get in to against the religious that always first resort to "Well, what about Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mao?  They were all atheists!

Since the one before mine has already been rated I'll do the one before that one...

4/10 - diagnosing religious belief as a mental illness is many, many years away.
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

^^^That was the whole point in writing it.  It is intended to be condescending sarcasm because the DSM-V is due to be released in May of 2013 and we all certainly know that even though most scientific professionals are either atheistic or agnostic, they won't want to piss in a Christian's Cheerios by telling them that they've been confirmed stupid on the medicinal level.

Are you saying that mentally ill people are stupid?

To be honest, I don't understand it. The J.C. seems to indicate Jesus Christ but one thing that Christ never mentions is any technology beyond his own time on earth.

Mooby, are your initials "JC"? In which case, I suppose it is fair enough as a signature.

Science is not technology.

Anyways, it's a multi-level sig.

J.C. does partially refer to Jesus Christ, alluding to the notion of science as the study of God's creation and Jesus being "still alive" after the resurrection.

J.C. also refers to Jonathan Coulton, who wrote the song "Still Alive" containing that quote for the video game Portal.

Science is not technology.

No, but technology is the appliance of science, and I don't recall any advancement of science in the Bible but there is some technology.

9/10 or higher when the criterion is "out of all signatures on all internet forums".

Perhaps 8/10 or still attaining a rounded 9/10 on this forum. The competition is simply tougher here than elsewhere.



Reading the definition alone could plant the seed that eventually leads to the entire removal of the reader's previously undetected delusion.
Enough with your bullshit.
