Re: LamarckNewAge
We may be too late for any of us to conduct an intervention program on LNA. He has left the building of reason & objective evidence and all he does now is regurgitate bizarre fantasies of what has happened since - oh, i dunno - the Dark Days of Joe McCarthy in the world of US politics. We keep checking the bottoms of our shoes to see if we stepped in it.

EvC should just return to shunning his posts.

Sad.

irrational
Tangle agrees, saying:
There just seems to be a proportion of people that reject the rational, actively preferring the irrational.

It's like the human brain is preferably deceived. You can begin to understand what us non-believers go through. The US was measured at 90% religious/believing in some God. We have a LOT of work to do.

Or maybe not....it's getting too hard to really care about the Lost.
