One one thing at least we agree.

Socrates taught us that the wise man knows what he does not know; the idiot shoots off his mouth even though he is ignorant.

This beautifully illustrates the fact that Christians, by and large, are not only ignorant; they OWN their ignorance.  Their basic argument against science is that they are ignorant of it, and they are PROUD of it.  As my friend, Tarvin said, when he struggled unsuccessfully to come up with a single scientific basis for his Baptist dogma, simply ended the argument with "I have faith!"

@Unseen - RE:

"One one thing at least we agree."

Then as much as it pains me to say it, I can't possibly be correct.

I quess that goes for spelling also. As we decay to noise, surely there will be a point where the Tower of Bable will look like a better place...

Tower of Bable (Babble?). I love it!

* Babel * ( from the root word " Babylon " ) . I am in agreement with your statement . Only in religion is being profoundly and shockingly ignorant considered virtuous .

Mr Cox is a very clever fellow. His television programs are stimulating.
