1. Looks interesting.
I will have to delve more into it. My problem with religious folk is their adherence to absolute truth. When one party has absolute truth, compromises cannot be made for any compromise negates the absoluteness of the held truth. Without compromise, there can be no peaceful coexistence for accommodations allowing both to exist cannot be reached. This is why we are currently having "culture wars".

2. But is it religion?
I've believed most of that stuff for years. But I'm not a virion (as they put it). It's all a little too po-faced for me. No sense of humour, no fun, and probably no fun in bed.

Trying to view semiotics, semantics, and linguistic sociology as religion seems, basically, to be missing the point. Turning a tool into a belief system? Well, I'll go out and found The High Holy Order Of The Screwdriver as soon as I've finished typing this.

Either it's a complicated joke (by some nerds who wanna make fools of all the other nerds who take 'em seriously) or these guys need a hobby (preferably something squishy involving lingerie and lube).

Khash.

4. Religious beliefs
Beliefs are concepts without foundation whereas religious beliefs are beliefs despite all evidence to the contrary.

3. a little help for the widow's son...suggest you edit your subject line...
Church of Virus is a much more attractive bait than "religious debate topic"...

and yes, the site (and the idea) is interesting, plenty interesting enough to call the attention of DUers...

and no, I'm not...

5. Very interesting. I will go back. No flat world people their.
The problem seems to be we have to many people in this country that think we a really the masters of the world and they are going to take over the rule by not thinking and going with what ever their so called ruler wants. We others are just evil doers. I may join the evil doers site it looks good.
