thank god i found this website [#945]
« on: January 18, 2009, 08:43:03 PM »
Pun intended. Thank you for a extremely well written and rational site with
humor and insight. I have always referred to myself as normal (when
discussing religion) and am very happy to see I am not alone. (Scary that I
sometimes feel alone when discussing religion). One point I did not see on
the website; the 'that is because of the devil and his influence in the
world' argument I get from those that have no other rational arguments left.
Any thoughts?

thanks
not an atheist, just normal, [name]

Yes, you must have a bad guy when the story has a good guy.  If not you cannot blame bad stuff on him.  Damn talking snake! ;)
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Well, if the Christian deity is not credible then the Christian demons aren't either.
Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons. --Michael Shermer

The history of religion is a long attempt to reconcile old custom with new reason, to find a sound theory for an absurd practice.  --Sir James George Frazer
