I am 100% in charge of what I think and believe. If I think something's silly, then it is. That's how opinions work.

I was trying to come up with an equally absurd thing to believe in. That's the...

Then you must feel the same way about the Roman, Greek and Norse gods? The Australian Aboriginal mythology holds that the world was born of the rainbow serpent. We dismiss that as them not...

So all those religious wars, the subjugation of women and other races, slavery and anti-gay laws would have existed? Many of the dickheads in the world use the bible to justify their actions. If they...

I didn't say that all religious people are nutjobs. But we all know of a few that are. And we know that (most of) the bible isn't real. Why do people perpetuate that which they know not to be real?

I would suggest that all the regulars have had a laugh at WBC, George Bush dovotees, the NRA or some other mock-worthy groups at one time or another.

That's only because the library is scared of offending religious nutjobs.
