Those guys I knew in high school who were pounding Mickey's Big-Mouths until they threw up, maybe they were on a spiritual quest?

Why is there freedom of religion but little or no freedom in religion?

All I want is for Freedom From Religion to carry as much weight as Freedom of Religion.

This thread is not - or at least, was not intended to be :) – about religion.

Hard to decouple God from religion. Not orderly enough for some.

It'd be interesting to talk about mystery, transcendence, mortality, being, the quest for meaning and all of that without the tyranny of reductionism. But hey...some kids need their blanket.

I believe they offer great comfort to the lame and simple-minded.
