Ask them.

I never claimed to "wannabe scientific". I'm not a "wannabe" anything.
I'm the "am" I've always wanted to be. I'm just a computer geek like
Carl. Also like Carl, I find the physical universe an endless source of
fascination. That's about as "scientific" as I'll ever get.

Well, "this here religious thread" showed up in "", but
no matter. Anything posted to a public forum is fair game.

It's hard to argue with, "I Seems to me none of your business st all".
You seems to be not too bright to me, and that's about it.

As someone pointed out in another post, the methods and reasons people
create myths such as god is very much inside the realm of science, but
studying it seriously can get the religious zealots on your back in no
time. The experimental psych people have known about superstitious
behavior, and have demonstrated it in the laboratory even on lower animals,
for quite a few years. I personally believe that the mechanism for
creating religions, and the reasons for it, are already known. You don't
believe me? I won't lose any sleep or "rant" about it ...

You seem to lead the league in ranting here ...
