Candide Schmyles replied to Ed's discussion 'Atheist 'Mega-churches' Taking Root Across America ???'
"I am in broad agreement with the majority here in finding such groups inherently suspicious and cult-like. Even its two leaders make my skin crawl as any cult leaders would. Yet on the other side there is the "congregation" most of whom I…"

Candide Schmyles replied to John Burrows's discussion 'The entheogen theory of religion'
"It would be naive or obtusely narrow-minded to think that any single factor gave rise to religion in the Human animal. It seems there are almost more theories than there are anthropologists and many of them can call on some aspect of mans use of…"
