They cynic might point out that the vast majority of human discourse is "meaningless blather."

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

Well, first of all, did you notice I said "might"?


Second of all, yes.

A cynic might very well point that out. But I am not a cynic.

Anyone familiar enough with the history of science will know just how risky a business it is invoking the god-of-the gaps argument.

What does not exist cannot be banished.


It is however possible that in the not TOO distant future we may be able to erase from human consciousness the idea of supernatural religion. If accomplished it will mark as important a step as the discovery of fire. Childhood's End will have arrived and we will be on the path to a mature and reason based existence - free from these hateful mythologies and the violence they inspire.

Religion is the longest running most successful con game in history. It works because the victims never realize they have been taken. They die first.

Although certain modern catholics are beginning to see the light.
