Re: you have perhaps led a sheltered life... (DA Morgan)
1. If you don't agree with them you are an atheist.
2. Science is only valid when it doesn't challenge their interpretation of scripture.
wrong...but valid science doesn't challenge my view of scripture :-)
3. The scientific method is waffling.
nope...some scienTISTS waffle, though
4. Anything that is not black and white is evil.
so would it be a sin for me to say gray :-)
5. That they, and only they, are the arbiters of what is Christian.
wrong...the book is the sole arbiter of what is christian
6. Lutherans, Episcopalians, Methodists, etc. are not really Christians because they occassionally use their gray matter to think.
if they would use the grey matter to think more than occassionally they might recognize the error of their ways :-)
7. Were it not for freedom of religion and freedom of speech DA Morgan should be burned at the stake.
would never do such a thing, wouldn't even think of it -- not even for you, dano...but could almost imagine one as fanatic as you are staging a self-immolation just so that you could blame someone else for it :-)
one psych word for it is matyr syndrome
do you ever get tired of being wrong:-)
