as it is getting late where I am, and I've lost the vinegar to carry on this admittedly unproductive exchange.
Ironic that your second example was almsot exactly like the first one. Giving religion credit for ultimately undoing a dispicable wrong that it was largely if not solely responsible for in the first place... are they not merciful.
I'll leave it at that, since you obviously do not wish to be questioned, or asked to explain anything. Religion is a topic that does not stand up to peer review and in fact, historically doesn't tolerate it. If you would prefer to go back to posting nothing with the rest of the cadre, we can go back to patting ourselves on the back over how clever we are.
Good night, and have a lovely new year as I shall not see any of you until it is 2012!
