The Difference Between Philosophy And Religion

 
The Difference Between Philosophy And Religion



I am calling myself atheistic as a part of being apistic.  But there are many people, who call themselves atheists in spite of being religious.  They do not consider this as a contradiction, as long as their preferred religion does not include personalized deities.

Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age: The Darkness Strikes Back
