Gods R Delusions<quoted text>
Simple. I make my conclusions based on what you write.
But when you fail to stand by your own words, you are more than "just another fool."
As for your comment about other Christians who have "faith without reason," once again you place yourself at a higher spiritual place than others.
You simply can not stop being judgmental.
If you were indeed a person of BOTH reason and faith (as you seem to imply), then your reason would tell you that your faith is not fact, and certainly not something on which to judge others.
Self-righteousness is the bane of all religion.
I agree with all of what you write.
Yet there is a tension or a border between people of faith, and those of faith and reason. I agree that I struggle with being judgmental. If someone does not, then I suppose that person is perfect.
Blind faith, and informed faith produce different results in a persons life. At some point if a person does not seek being informed, they are led into darkness and confusion. And to seek, requires a certain discipline and obedience.
Perhaps also, the bane of religion is to be accustomed to someone, and their responses. So with respect to June, I shall in the future not consider them....As I have a tendency to respond to her as a child continually yelling, "Wolf". Yet to ignore her is more aligned with malice. I will have to give that some thought.
I will take your advice and be more humble, seek humility, and praise it.
