Since when is Atheism a religion?
I would argue that a more accurate definition of religion is the collection of random-ass superstitions that a person holds to be true without any supporting evidence or logic. Under that definition atheism would be the religion in which the collection is empty.

Re: Four things they did differently that made real conversation possible

Bill, none of that is in the Constitution. That the Framers did not abide by the agreement that was struck doesn't change the meaning of the words that are actually in the agreement.

Re: Four things they did differently that made real conversation possible

Though corrupt modern judges no doubt disagree with me, I don't think there even is an establishment clause, and if there is it has nothing to do with giving you the right to(EDIT: appear at their get together and)- what, pray?

Re: Four things they did differently that made real conversation possible

Competent judges wouldn't agree with you Bill because on that statement you are incorrect: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. It is in the constitution in rather plain, clear, language. How the framers got from "all men are c...

Re: Four things they did differently that made real conversation possible

Your point "my problem with modern political discourse is that a lot of people think that shouting down opposing views is acceptable/appropriate." is right on. But so far at least, it seems that 90% of that problem comes from the left. Whether from Antifa, or the average university profs and studen...

I was thinking it would be a good weekend for the LSHT. It never occurred to me that it might be closed. It's deer hunting season after all.

Re: Harvey

I remained dry and comfortable through the storm. I had a trip scheduled and rescheduled my flights to fly into/outof San Antonio. At the moment I'm in Montana. From record breaking rain to record breaking drought.

Re: Harvey

Yah; its mandatory now. Last year during the Tax Day flood we were high and dry with the Brazos at 55'-0", but we couldn't get out of the subdivision after it got to about 50'-0. Up until about three hours ago, the forecast crest was 55'-6", something we figured we could tough out. But now the late...
