Fair enough, you have an opinion, but can you at least try to be respectful of others?
What's the problem with what he said?
Who did I disrespect? It is a book of fairytales. If someone quotes a passage from Little Red Riding Hood in order to make a point, I'm going to call them on it. I'm not going to sit here and sugarcoat what I say just because questioning religion is taboo. I respect logic and reason. I do not respect the belief that there is an all-powerful sugardaddy in the sky.
And do you really want to talk about disrespect? What you said about science is perhaps the most offensive, vacuous statement in the entire thread.
I'm gonna check on what he said now.
I agree wholeheartedly with you, mate.
Then you believe that human rationality is the only means to understand? Reason gives us the ability to understand, but it also forms the boundaries of human thought.
Yeah, it is.
Cogito, ergo sum.
We only evolved with the purpose of keeping our kind going. It's rather medieval of you, almost Biblical, to make humans the reference point to understand the universe.
No, it's not. Until there's proof of something more intelligent than us in the universe, we have the right to think of ourselves and the reference point.
It's annoying to discuss in this language for me.
If reason are the boundaries of human cognition, then I think there has to be "knowledge" outside our reason too, but were not evolved to grasp outside our senses.
That's bullshit. And you know it.
But you're a practising Catholic.
