Too bad you try so hard to excuse your own aberrant behavior within a twisted sense of reality. Keep twisting, maybe you'll torque something back into its correct position.

Unless you believe there can be no faith, and vice verse. Belief can produce real results in the real world. Deny it all you want.

<quoted text>YOU are the one who is ignorant.
The bible clearly states that "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live".
The message there is crystal clear.
But since you seem to think that there is NO clear meaning in ANY of the scriptures, just what do you believe in?
You are an IDIOT, RR- and while I haven't told you the following lately, it's as true as when I first told you and it was totally true then, and it's totally true now:
YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN.
Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. KJV

Sorcerers must not be allowed to live. Knox Bible

You will not let a witch live. Lexam Bible

Don’t let a sorceress live. The Message

Never let a witch live. Names of God Bible

You shall not allow a sorceress to live. New American Standard

Thou shalt not allow a mekhashefah (witch, sorceress) to live. Orthodox Jewish Bible

You shall not permit a sorceress to live. Revised Standard Version (Tell me that's not a funny name)

Thou shalt not suffer witches to live. Wycliffe Bible

A witch thou dost not keep alive. Young's Literal Translation

Don’t allow a female sorcerer to live. Common English Bible

Whoever has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death. Complete Jewish Bible.(Ain't that a departure?)

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. Darby Translation

Put to death any woman who does evil magic. Expanded Bible

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. 1599 Geneva Bible

Never let a witch live. God's word translation

Put to death any woman who practices magic. Good News Translation (Good News? Bwahahaha)

You must not allow a sorceress to live. Holman Christian Standard

Hmm, those are only the tip of the iceberg. Except for the beastiality-obsessed Jews, it seems pretty clear that these evil twits want you to kill women on speculation.

The manifestation of "faith" is a mental disorder. Science provides facts. "Faith" is simple heresay - a mental disorder, for which thousands of humans have been persecuted and murdered for centuries.

Yes, there is a proven placebo effect.

It can also be a source of comfort during difficult times--a crutch, if you will.

Some of us though, those who are critical thinkers and cannot accept anything without evidence, are unable to suspend our disbelief to take advantage of these benefits.

You see no difference between the sentient and non-sentient? Weird.

Here is an article that shoots down your bird assertion:

If it is normal for man to be that way then how is it abnormal. Religious belief is abnormal, too.

He says he "feels like a woman on the inside", even though he has no womanly *parts*; how's that for "understanding" reality? He can't know how femininity "feels" with no feminine bits and pieces. He spends far too much time in his imaginary world.

"The current scientific paradigm doesn't recognize this spiritual dimension of life. We're told we're just the activity of carbon and some proteins; we live awhile and die. And the universe? It too has no meaning. It has all been worked out in the equations – no need for a soul. But biocentrism – a new ‘theory of everything'– challenges this traditional, materialistic model of reality."
