"For me I am so aware of religion that this is the default thought that I have on a daily basis. When I look at someone, see a cross on someone's neck, a yarmulke on someone's head, I internally shake my head. But daily, I am so used to…"

Paul Reed commented on Matthew Walker's blog post 'Atheist Twilight Zone Phenomenon (tell me I'm not the only one)'
"I've had brief experiences like this, not always about religion. In fact, once, while still a believer, I remember looking at the people walking busily to and fro on the street and feeling a detachment. All these people, I felt, are so wrapped…"

Matthew Walker commented on Ryan E. Hoffman's blog post 'Bill O'Reilly - Oslo killer wasn't Christian because Christians don't kill people...'
""O'Reilly's a living, walking parody of the No True Scotsman fallacy." ^^This right here. I was almost knocked out of my chair by the deafening use of this particular fallacy.  Bill's words should be put into textbooks…"

"Dawkins put in succinctly.  We are surrounded by delusion, all religions.  When bombarded by dogma continuously, I think it does change the brain physically and Steven Pinker and others have suggested this.  "
