I'm ok, you on the other hand are crazy.

My Science Fiction club was meeting the other night, and the subject of weird religions came up (most members are christians) and everybody started trashing mormonism and scientology as particularly unbelieveable, when I said: "When you realize why you don't believe in those, you will know why I don't believe yours!  This earned a nervous laugh among the "saved" crowd.  But it did recall to mind all the group therapy sessions I ran at the transitional home.  Everybody realized and agreed with the other members of the group as to why each member was there, except for themselves whom they always thought had been inappropriately and wrongly committed to the facility.  I guess a diseased (or religious) mind is just incapable of accurate and rational self evaluation.

They are unable to comprehend just how ironic is their hypocrisy .

I am occasionally asked about my opinion of Mormonism, especially in the context of the recent election.  My answer is always, “Exactly the same as my opinion of ALL religions.”  That usually gets the point across without any need for further elaboration.

Honesty, like mathematics and music are skills that demand some degree of self awareness and an ongoing desire for mastery. It is unclear if or how many are up to the task. Optimistic evaluations of our 'certainty', can be premature..

"What does a science fiction club do (besides ka-thunk atheists on the head)?"

I thought that was 'little bunny fufu'?  LOL

I want my own planet...with oxygen, please.  : )

People willing to believe without evidence see each other as having the right answer when they all share the same cup of crazy.

Sci-Fi club primarily discusses science fiction writing and its authors, but tend to stray into diverse topics.  (Really, its just an excuse for a bunch of middle aged friends to get together.)

Then there are the sci-fi based cocktails....  I like the sound of Beam Me Up Scotchie, myself :)

I understand there is something called a Vulcan Mind Probe... everclear cut with vodka.

There is something strange about christians at a science fiction club meeting. Wait a minute, that does make sense!
