An impossible task. May I suggest you use one of your standard tools of inquiry and perform the witch test on me. If I drown, I'm telling the truth.

This is how stupid people really are....

A guy wanted a job at our hospital, but during the interview he was informed that he failed the urine drug test (marijuana).

So what did he do?

He checked into the hospital's ER and insisted that the doctor give him "something" to "neutralize" the marijuana in his urine so that he could take the urine drug test again, and pass it this time.

I wonder if his parents had any children who weren't retarded?

One can only hope, but don't hold your breath. Religion has such emotional content people will suspend their disbelief in order to experience the instant relief they can get from not having to confront difficult subjects like mortality.
Hell...the Mormans even offer you your own planet where you can play your harp without interruption.

Good article, corn fructose. Athiests have been persecuted throughout history, by people who are manipulated by fear. I dont trust anyone who claims to have special knowledge about ultimate truths from God. Threatening people with eternal damnation if they don't accept some primitive religion. What a load of sh#t. Can you imagine what it's like to be the Pope, and actually believe you're God's representative to humanity? (could this be ... arrogant perhaps?) The guy used to be a Nazi, too, he fought in Hitler's army, while German peace activists were being arrested and executed.

Did someone say Morwomans?

Warning, adult blasphemy... being born and raise in Utah, this song has special meaning to me.

This has been cited here before. It's also cited in the aforementioned article:

The Dalai Lama,
“All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.

No worries, Dalai Lama. We hear you, and we are on it! :)

.....

re: On the power of science and the internet for Jim Gilliam, a cancer and organ transplant patient, who wrote "The Internet is My Religion."

"I owed every moment of my life to countless people I would never meet. Tomorrow, that interconnectedness would be represented in my own physical body. Three different DNAs. Individually they were useless, but together they would equal one functioning human. What an incredible debt to repay. I didn’t even know where to start. And that’s when I truly found God. God is just what happens when humanity is connected. Humanity connected is God."

When people use the word "God," what do they mean by it when they do? I think the answer is changing, evolving. A good thing.

Flu? What flu? Chiropractors buck the trend by warning against flu shots


“We recommend the approach that was so successful during the pandemic [OF 1917-1918]; routine preventative care and if symptomatic, an intensive course of care with supportive nutrition, homeopathics, herbs and or other types of therapies,” Rossell said in an email.

DUDE: "Successful approach"??? The flu killed 1-3% of the population!
There is more than 60% chance the flu shot will protect you.
