Did I do bad?

No, you done good. We love this thread. Really we do.

I'm out of energy to keep it on the frontpage - someone help me revive it quick! Paul?

But the whole argument is based on the erroneous assumption that all faith is religious faith and that there is no difference between 'faith' and 'a faith'. Which seems rather tenuous to me.

The thing that put me off not even halfway through was the suggestion that a paedophile majority could legalise paedophilia. Quite an absurd proposition (much like the notion that Sharia law will ever be democratically passed), especially coming from people who prefer to protect child beaters instead of child lovers.

I must have avoided the first round.

WTF? Belief=religion? Agonsticism if faith-based because it's based on arguments?

Actually, the thing I have the biggest issue with is "Download winmail.dat". What? Offering a file the uselessness of which is symbolic of everything that's wrong with microsoft and that exists only to plague people who don't use outlook?

Speakign of TBR threads, though, I was reading someone asserted that the moral text of 19th century Europe was actually the Iliad - which seems credible at least from appearances. Not that she thought this was a good thing.
