That is NOT where the alleged interlopers are from though, they are mostly from WINLAC.

Here's a nice place to illustrate the difference between religious faith and evidence based trust.

Consider simplyput's proud mantra, "you could not begin to turn any of us Christians into atheist or to make us turn from our FAITH." With that attitude, nothing could possibly make him stop believing that his government would be there for him when he needed it. But the evidence suggests otherwise.

The willingness to believe only as much as the evidence supports, and the willingness to increase or decrease that level of trust as new evidence comes along, is what characterizes rational skepticism.

Yes, you could say that I have lost faith in that government, and that is technically correct. But if I want somebody to understand that I don't just pick my preferred reality and rigidly claim certitude that it is true so much so that I refuse to evaluate conflicting evidence, I'll use a less ambiguous term. I might say that I no longer trust the government to look out for my interests instead.

Consider this: "you could not begin to turn any of us Americans into skeptics concerning our government, or to make us turn from our FAITH in it."

If you take that attitude, you might be in for a cold, hungry retirement. Obviously, blind faith - rigid certitude uninterested in evidence - can be a costly mistake.

To a (religious) faith based thinker, there is still such a thing as social security, whereas to a reality and evidence based thinker who might have been counting on that money, it is social insecurity. That's the difference between faith based thought and evidence based thought.

Hi Lawest100,

Thank you for that. Hope that you are keeping well.
The unbelievers come in all shapes and sizes, some with attitude and some that want to perhaps become believers. I am not judging anyone. All I did was mention that the person had an answer for everything and I liked their sense of humour. The fact that they are unbelievers or believers, is besides the point.

Take care Lawest100

Agreed. IMHO it is a disgrace to the very thing they claim is sacred.
They might as well uses the pages for toilet paper, it would be less of an insult.
Yes but not all do it and it isn't 'taught' to the ones who do.

Agreed with the first part, not the last part though, many churches DO teach people to use the Bible as an excuse for hatred and deceit.

There are only 10 types of people.

Yep. Just like the ones from here that went on WINLAC.

Nothing new. Many have been on both threads for years.

The back and forth has been going on for years as well.

The idea of this thread EVER being a "Golden Room" are just nostalgic fantasies.

Why does it seem so difficult for some of you to articulate a simple idea clearly? You have never seen Catcher, including never having seen him post. But you have seen and read his posts.

Try again.

I am well Cheriann, been awhile since we communicated and hope that all is well with you, I understand what you are saying about those who do not believe, and there is nothing wrong with a sense of humor when it is not aimed at disrespecting anyone's beliefs or aimed at them for any other derogatory purpose.

But it's good to see you again, and don't be a stranger as they say.

Blessings.
