That is one of my current favorite quotes.  Thanks for the message!
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

Are you an atheist, or a muslim who prayed for something like that to happen?
I've left WWGHA now, so do everyone else a favour and don't bother replying to my old posts and necromancing my threads.
