Yes, you say you don't think it's justified. Then you go on to try to justify it by saying things about society, being too busy to ask God if it's OK, etc. That's what prompts the questions.

I could compare that sort of inconsistency with the people that say "Now, I ain't racist, but all them blacks don't do nothin but get a check first of the month and blow it on gold teeth and baggy pants". The "have it both ways" message, not the racism.

do whut wrote, "<quoted text>Missourians slaughtering men, women, and children because they were Mormon.
I see the predjudice correlation"

Then you get it, I guess? Except for the part where I didn't ask a question about that. I asked a question and simply used that to point out how your group was a victim of the same thing. The question was, basically, how a group that was so persecuted could persecute so easily, and for so long.

do whut wrote, "<quoted text>
Who are you talking to?"

I dunno... maybe the person I quoted?
I didn't see the quote at the top.

No, I'm not trying to justify anything. I'm giving you my best guess based on the time period and location. It isn't my job to justify anyone's actions but mine, and my kids.

Actually looking back, you didn't quote anyone at all. But your tone was duly noted.

You really could have stopped after this and not posted a full page. If you are going to speak of logic and reason, you need to actually know what they are. Nobody that understands logic would state that faith is logical. It is not. They are mutually exclusive. The application of faith requires committing multiple logical fallacies (false cause, personal incredulity, begging the question, black or white, etc.).
To answer your question:
To improve mankind's understanding of the universe and therefore improve lives.
Please do consider changing the name you post under until you actually learn what truth is.
How about you study your own faults...and the MANY LOGS of ignorance that lay with in yourself.

I'll post to whatever length I chose to.

And I find YOUR MERE opinion-to be NOTHING-but yet more abhorrence.

Don't like MY opinion and perspective on things- DON'T READ it.

Some things are -just THAT simple.

Do you follow people around and judge their posts out the same spite and JUDGEMENTALness as what you are projecting in your post?

Are you "Yiago" posting under another name?

If not, I asked NO question of you, in which case, you should ot be asnwering for someone else.

If you are Yiago, and are answering the question on a favorite quote- why don't YOU start with learning some truth, and apply some logic, and post under the same name, if you're going to answer a question?

And just so you HAVE to look at your OWN flawed irrationality and ILLogic-

LOGIC: A person would have logical FAITH in something that is proven to be WORTHY of it...such as surgical abilities.

ILLOGICAL: To blindly follow some lame lemming herd pack of HATRED, that knows NOTHING of what they speak of...with NO ability other than to insylt others WITH ability.

is a bogus statement. You cannot help but "compare to each other" and you cannot help but to judge.
Beyond that, to be consistent with the tenets of most theology it is beyond man's place to assign the parameters and responsibilities of "God" or any other deity - even if you read it in a Book.

Con artists and those who hold themselves to be anything that they are NOT, are not worthy of "faith", while the well intentioned and proven worthy are.

Well then maybe I'm an oddball. I don't take the effort to judge because I don't care enough about that. It doesn't matter. I have my own issues and faults to deal with without trying to rank myself against anyone.

Faith? That just means that you blindly follow. No reason or logic because those require thought and thought and faith do not work.
Hey, if you do not like what people post than do not read them, it is that simple

The problem is that they would force it on the children. The christian cult is dying and they are desperate to brainwash innocent children.
The teachers who are jesus freaks would bully students in to studying the bible and there would be preachers in the schools going around trying to con children
Plus, with such high numbers of christians raping children they should not be allowed in schools period

HAHAHA
I asked him a question"Like trying to kill a fish by drowning it in an empty water bucket."
"I am sure that makes sense to you.."
And it should have,I provided him with all the necessary information needed to drown a fish.
Any one with half a brain would understand that,if you keep a fish out of water long enough,it would suffocate.It is not rocket Science. You ever hear of "flopping around like a fish out the water.
Now,you can drown a human by submerging him in water for a certain period of time.If you keep him submerged long enough,he will drown,,,,Common sense
Obviously,Skeptikal Spektakal did not catch on to what was very obvious.
In order to prove me wrong,he filled the bucket and held the fish underwater for well over an hour..The fish did not drown and in a fit of anger he got a double barreled shotgun and shot in then head...LOL
Again, your logic and knowledge are far more limited than your anger. Depending on the size and type of fish, it is likely that it will drown in a bucket of water. Certain fishes such as goldfish and labyrinth fishes can take oxygen from air, but most other fish will suffocate in a bucket of water unless it is aerated.
Your story about another poster is obviously fabricated. It seems that being clueless about live wells and the 9th commandment can be added to the list.

Yeah, that's how it works.
If you don't like the definition of the words being used, make up new ones.
But I do find it quite hilarious that you probably don't think your "illogical" definition applies to you.

You make judgments all the time. You automatically take risk assessments of situations and people. While that may not equal your personal definition of being "judgmental", it is a reaction you cannot avoid. Accepting or denying that fact doesn't change the fact, so no - that practice doesn't make you an oddball. What makes one an oddball is realizing it and attempting to overcome the shortcoming.
