    top 10 signs you are a fundie whackjob:

    10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of your god.

    9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from lesser life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

    8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Trinity god.

    7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" -- including women, children, and trees!

    6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

    5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loop-holes in the scientifically established age of the Earth (4.55 billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by pre-historic tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that the Earth is a couple of generations old.

    4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects -- will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet you consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving".

    3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to prove Christianity.

    2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

    1 - You actually know a lot less than many Atheists and Agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history -- but still call yourself a Christian
     
  2. This is because the belief in gods allays human fear of powerlessness. That is the only purpose of religion, to give people who have, and will never have, control over any aspect of their lives, the illusion of control.

    This is why people pray before football games, etc.

    That fact that life is largely random is too much for most people to bear. Stories and myths have to be constructed to explain away death, rape, murder, disease, hunger, war, etc.

    Trading is much the same way, thousand of pages have been written to explain away that no one really knows which way price is going to move.

    No one really knows anything, but a lot of people try to convince others and themselves with volume, either of words,of voice, or information.

  8. Bob Jones U. used to be pretty dogmatic. I do not know whether they still are or not.

    Fella I went to college with got into witchcraft and his parents sent him to Bob Jones to straighten him out. Still looked pretty messed up to me after he got out.

    Tresor

    There are hunderds if not thousands religions worldwide. Each religion claims to be the only true and the only one that can help you get into heaven.

    Odds of making a good trade are higher than odds you are currently believing the right god.

    I made the right choice to trade :D
