I am scientifically pointing out drastic ethical inconsistencies not "bagging".If these bizarre inconsistencies didn't exist there would be no ethical basis to criticize them. Unfortunately their inconsistencies exist.
Source please if it's a scientific study.
You took great pains to point out New Atheism in such a way, though. Hindu etc much 'softer' way. Not saying it's not true, just saying it's true of everyone, even if 1 thinks 1 doesn't do it. me inclu
Nice try and completely pop psychology debunked. A world view according to one. No proof and no evidence to back this up. Just a thought by an atheist,
Eric - GM has offered an opinion, you have offered yours. No one is proving anything - yet if you want proof, it may pay to provide your own (to the debunking) as well. Please, I wanted opinions, not people getting at each other.
