My post contained above acceptable levels of truthiness for this board, and was subsequently removed :snooty:

Because it's wrong and immoral to fill people's heads with false beliefs, that's why. It also stagnates human progress/philosophy. And as long as Judeo-Christianity and Islam exists, these religious wars will never end. Granted, humans usually find other things to go to war over, but who knows, maybe we can find peace one of these days. But as long as the two major conflicting religions exist, there can never be peace. These religions must be eradicated from our society, however long it takes.

Talk about doublespeak. This is textbook of rational human reasoning. The ultimate expression of man's logic and reason.

Religious wars are a bad thing......but..........

Granted, humans usually find other things to go to war over, but who knows, maybe we can find peace one of these days.

Anyone out here catch the bad nonsense that this line of reason and logic makes?? The double standard?? Anyone here catch the false belief????

I will say it again...since the French Revolution...and the wars which were to follow.....in the time of reason..the fruit of the age of reasonable men...men of logic and reason...wise men...more people have been killed and slaughtered across this globe..and at a faster rate than in the years before.

And these are the heydays of science...logic and reason...Astonishing

Once again...you have to go to public school to become this ignorant and think no one will notice it.

I am the kind of fellow who will ask.......if more people have been killed and slaughtered across this globe since the French Revolution....what kind of religion is in play here?? What kind of devout religion is going on here that even the wise educated peoples don' seem to recognize it for what it is??? A religion undefined to most people being taught history or even with the ability to think for themselves??

Hope this gets some of you to think outside the box.

Interesting. That exact same 2 verses were read on the radio last night on a radio station I was listening to on my way home.

Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man. - Albert Einstein

Interesting indeed. What are the odds that some random bloke off the street (me) invokes the same passages as the person on the radio?
Did I tell you the story of how I came to know these words?

(Btw, I prefer the "and he will direct thy paths" version better)

I was living in Berkeley, CA. This was about 10 years ago now (phew--time flies). I got a bug up my butt to attend church and there I was sitting in the back with nothing but extremely well dressed black people in the pews around me. The sermon was on the Proverbs passage.

What probably made it stick in my mind (as I have a tendency to forget important things) was that someone in the new church was suddenly saying my name!

Turns out, someone in the choir was a former student of mine. She was giving me thanks and praise and then after the ceremony, a few people came up to me to say hello, including the singer. Anywho, that's how I remember Proverbs 3:5-6.
