Les Jones BS: Blind Faith ? (16) RE: BS: Blind Faith ? 16 Mar 02

It seems to me that anybody can create or declare a religion. Isn't that what L Ron Hubbard did? Isn't that what individuals and collections of individuals have done across the ages. Some seem to help people do somethings sometime. Relgions don't need to be coherent to survive.

Science is based on our experience of natural phenomena and what we think it means. Over time a concensus is arrived at that is the best bet at that time. All systems of accademic understanding work pretty well like this. Religion seems not to.

If I want a phone number I go to the phone book. If I want to study rocks or natural history I choose other books. People who choose the bible to understand natural history don't look in the bible for phone numbers. Now, why is that?

Some teachers in Gateshead, England and various states of America, are telling lies to children and they will be burning books if we do nothing
