I take it your childhood friend finds reality disturbing and gets insulted by facts.

Give that person a sugar pill and tell them it's a highly addictive drug that makes you feel high for hours.

Religious people will believe anything.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Sorry, but I'm having trouble putting this complicated little dialogue together—must be my incipient senility? Blink

Are you saying that your childhood friend is [1.] an atheist, or, [2.] a theist? Is she M or J? And who did the insulting of whom? Was it M insulting J, or was J insulting M?

And presumably, you're S—who read M's comments, or was it J's comments? Was it M or J who was "insulted" by a complete stranger on the street, and how, exactly, does that sort of thing happen?

—Whatever, the purported claims about scientists, their own religion or lack thereof, and their views about religion are total bullshit.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Scientists are not always right and God is never wrong.

That's because the scientific method is self correcting in that it seeks to discover the flaws and limitations of the current level of understanding. And God cannot be wrong because God does not exist.

It would be a very weird atheist who would go around saying stuff like that. More likely they have reduced what was said to this ridiculous strawman.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Two.

There may have been a third.

Hey, it was the 80's and I would sleep with anyone.

Did I ever tell you about the Roman dinner party, complete with slaves, I once held?

No?

Oh well.

Hey, is this on topic?

Yes, Banjo, it is very much on topic. Tell me, were there didgeridoos involved? Please tell me there were didgeridoo involved.

#sigh

Once, in band camp...

Oh never mind.
