    Do the things modern theists say, sound primitive and crazy?

      The moon does...hence the name 'lunacy'. Really? Incorporating Einsteinian physics in our proof-set primitive? Crazy. It is said that atheists know more about religion than religious people. Good thing, cause they don't know squat about science.

      Do you think people get these two words mixed up?  Science and "séance"

        It's possible that dooky means something other than feces, but we have not heard a likely alternative as of yet.

        They claim to be intelligent, yet they don't see the error in their mental processes. Can you build a cell phone with the bible? No... Yet they seem to think that their bible invalidates science. How ignorant does the church wish for it's followers to remain?

        To the question, "Do the things modern theists say, sound primitive and crazy?" you wrote "Yes."

        If you had said, "Yes, to me they do,"  would that have been unquestionable?

    Only because they started down the path of private interpretation centuries ago, and the farther we go down that path, the thicker the underbrush..

      Listen...there is a voice! Calling in the wilderness! Prepare you, oh, man, for the advent of the flesh. When Rock and Roll started getting really complicated in the mid to late seventies, there was a movement to get back to the roots of the form...and grunge was born. This is an analogy.

        I think I get it?  at least in my own way.  I had already fallen away from that "NEW" music in the early 70's.   heck  I remember before the rolling stones came out. They were new to me..  great to shake your boody to.

        Why not make something new of an old way of thinking, it's only staying true to progress.

          True but what good is a new concept of dirt , or rain, ...  by any other name, mud is still mud.

            I'm not talking about spirituality or religion, just an agreement of a moral nature. One that would aleviate the necessity to one up one another.

        Johnny. Do you think that someone who wears a costume becomes the character of the costume? Neither do I. Don't let my mystic overtones fool you. I call myself Druid Dude to keep people like you off balance. It works.

          The bible didn't create Caligula, or Nero, although the latter tried to blame christians for the fire that devasted Rome. There were probably other madmen who weren't influenced by the bible.

            There most likely were, yet none quite as motivated by the prospect of riches.

    To the same degree that oxygen creates fire

      Oxygen is necessary to create fire.  So, is lunacy possible without religion?

        The term is archaic. Schizophrenia is possible without religion. Atheists can also be socio-paths. Psychoses don't always present with a religious overtone. That is just Hollywood. Mental illness can be found where no bibles can. On another note, helping to cure mental illness, religion has often been used to re-connect the mentally ill to a social framework.

          I think you are right, on all points.

          It can, but all frames of mind and all of men's ways are flawed. So any information one sees as correct, is jus another personal observation and only has the meanings the individual is conditioned to accept. Everything is the individual, in the sense that the ellectro chemical patterns of the brain and the expression there of, are unique to the brain percieving the event, sensation, experience. So if one has experienced a moment with God/god, then another has had an enlightenment.
