Re: Compromise.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A BELIEVER AND A STRONG CRITICAL THINKER?
IMHO no, as there is no basis for belief (i.e. no evidence). Believe what you want but without evidence there can be no critical thinking about it.

Re: Compromise.
Well I did say there was no evidence "for" belief. Lots of evidence (i.e. the lack of evidence for belief) for the existence of god(s).

Re: How I feel about religion
He is a fucking asshole with no redeeming factors. It appears you would defend Hitlter or Stalin at this point.

Re: Politics and Secular Emotionalism
You are obviously not "pro-thinking" otherwise you wouldn't have typed the lie that "Biden attacks a whole half of the country as being fascist". He only referred to the MAGAs which don't even include most republicans. Also, Biden is not an authoritarian, that is the current republican forte. Look at Trump and several Republican governors (Florida, Texas, ...) for examples of authoritarians. How can you possibly think that Biden is an authoritarian? It boggles the mind. Most of us here aren't too concerned with the traditional conservatives, though we might not agree with they, they didn't seem intent on destroying the country. It's the extreme right that concerns us as they are harming this country.

Re: Politics and Secular Emotionalism
The extremists on either end are loonies, but at least the left loonies aren't trying to take rights away from anyone or steal elections or ban books. So I'm not worried at all about them.
