Please could you write your retort in solid paragraphs? I'm trying to keep up, but it's hard when you guys respond to each sentence with a sentence of your own.

Don't tell me that others may come and go by saying "hay am catholic lulz". Yet you don't complain when that happens.

I hope we can agree that the purpose of religion is not to give an account of reality.

Either we're going to discuss the universe, or we're going to discuss a social construct known as religion....

The theory of the social contract is always meant as a hypothesis, not an actual account of history. Rousseau wasn't the one who came up with it, he just altered it so that it was compatible with his...

The only problem with divine law is that is was written down.

Anyone there?

Could you give an example of these? To my knowledge, a 100% of these claims have come about through quasi philosophy and pseudo science. Concerning ethical systems, most is derived simply from a...
