    OK, Toby, there are a lot of possibilities: If your religious code says that the earth is flat, it could help you out of geography. And if you have to wear obscure clothing all the time, it could free you from sports. If you insist on logic as being diabolical, you will get rid from math. But if you say, that the human body is abominable, you will not be allowed to participate in sex ed. Do you really want …. ?.

    A lot of people who claim to follow a specific religion may be hard pressed to explain or defend the doctrines they claim to believe in


    Faith itself is a good thing, but “religion” can suck all the good out of faith


    If you only believe what you believe because someone else said you should believe it, then you have no right to expect anyone else to respect your opinion – Dr. Toon

    That paragraph is exactly the kind of phrasing that I’ve been looking for. I may steal that on occasion :)

    You could become a member of the environmentalist wacko religion. Believe: “global warming”, not to recycle is a sin; that using resources is a sin, travel is a sin (although you can sin a bunch there if you are rich)…the list is long. Your Pope is Algore…oops, Al Gore, and your founder is Darwin (although Darwin was a Christian).

    Well said! I never understood why people believed in things they couldn’t explain. They don’t expect to get called on it.
    I was going to start my own personal religion when I worked. One that said I could not work on weekends or after dark. Then I got a day job and no weekends and now retired – so I’m religionless. (gee, spell checker doesn’t like that word).

    My son’s high school was really multicultural. They also didn’t allow the kids to wear hats (The school board stupidly claimed wearing of a hat of any kind indicated membership in a “gang” ) The only kids allowed to wear heads were those whose religion required it (Sikhs, some Islam, some Jewish kids)
    My son and most of his friends were non-conformist art and drama geeks. They all enjoyed pushing the envelope, and often showed up wearing top hats, bowlers, jester’s hats, baker’s hats, whatever they could find, the more outlandish the better.
    Only one managed to keep his hat on all the time. Norman wore a plain black watchcap. He claimed he wore it for religious reasons. When asked which religion, he told the school board “I practice Normanism.” They let him wear his hat.

    I and other Unitarian Universalists agree with Dr. Toon’s analysis, and that it’s up to the individual to find his or her own spiritual path.
    .
    Unfortunately, expressing that sort of opinion will only get you killed in most places in the world (including the U.S.).

    That ‘Sideshow Bob’ looking boy is my favourite out of Toby’s friends.

    The other one is pretty cute too but he needs a haircut.

    LOL xxx

    Seems intelligent to me to protect the planet we live on so we won’t die in our own waste. But some others think it is okay, that their god will save them. Nada to that destructive mind set.

    Are you still a non-smoking person? If you need any help, read The Flying McCoys today. Good luck!

    While you’re at it, insist that man evolved from monkeys and ridicule anyone who believes differently.
