I don't plan to keep banging my head against someone else's ideological/dogmatic wall. "Feed only the hungry," I say.

A very large portion of the population in my neck of the woods espose some form of Christianity, and I have to interect with these people. It would make my life a whole lot more difficult if all of those people were to suddenly abandon the fruits of rationality of which they make partial use. I have no interest in prompting these folks to be completely consistent in their irrationality as it would make them consistently unbearable.

If a law were passed that mandated that folks be either completely rational or completely irrational I would be in constant violation of it, as would everyone else who wasn't in a vegatative state. If the guys with guns actually started devoting resources to the enforcement of that law then I think it would be time to emmigrate.

Take care.
