Today, a two-pack a day smoker patient of mine said that she only eats organic food, because, you know, "all those chemicals they add in processed food are bad for you." Such breathtaking cluelessness forced me to re-think my position that cluelessness is a defining feature of the religious. I have therefore decided to reword my first law of religiosity to the more succinct "Idiocy abounds". More pithy, I think, what?

Maybe she smokes all-natural cigarettes made from pesticide-free, organic, free-range tobacco. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Doc's first law of religiosity now states that "The total lack of irony (also called cluelessness) is a defining feature of the religious".

See, for example, Moses writing of himself in Numbers 12:3: "Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth."

Doc

"I'm a million times as humble as thou art"




I didn't know Moses was Amish. Funny, he doesn't look Amish.
