"There's really nothing to clarify, @Gallup.  God is a postulate in the same way that Euclid's axioms are postulates.  They are a starting point that defines an intellectual system or worldview, not an ending point.  …"

"Must be a different Dr. Bob.  I don't know how to block anybody on this site.  I wouldn't in any event, since I'm just an occasional visitor. Your claymation reminds me of the old SNL "Mr. Bill". "

"Yes, Bob - few cult devotees recognize that they are even members of a cult, let alone practitioners of religion."

"Ah, @Gallup, back to the adolescent name calling I see. I think this thread is about the definition of religion. Perhaps you would like to contribute to that conversation?"

"Ummm... I honestly don't know, @Heather. The language you are using is very different from the language we would use, but it may be that our concepts are close. I'm not sure what a "Catholic pantheon" is, but it would be true…"
