    Link: Conflict: Choice And Reason - A beautifully made video. Perhaps not made for the election, but definitely applicable.

    Beautiful video. The farther we, as a society, get from religion the better we get.

    A beautifully produced presentation of false distinctions, applicable to nothing.

    False distinctions only if you ignore the current American political landscape randomxnp. I don`t think it`s liberals claiming that rape pregnancies are God`s will (or that "legitimate rapes" don`t lead to pregnancy), that Jesus has called them to run for office, that Mormons are no longer a cult, and that this election has everything to do with the moral questions of being a good Christian.

    But, to be sure, I don`t see it as a choice between religion and reason, because religion can be quite reasoned. I see it as a choice between ill reasoned religious fundamentalism and reason. I think the difference is significant.

    I choose - to get back to work. These posts are f`ing killing me. I`m now bored of being bored. Truly motivational.

    The world is neither black nor white, and believing that it is will lead us to ruin.

    I don`t necessarily think its as black and white as the video makes it, but leaving religious views towards science in the past would be a great thing.

    It definitely is pretty black and white here. But that is, unfortunately, how loads of people think. This has a good idea, but the interpretation of the idea isn`t as it should be. At least that is what I think

    We mock the tribes that worships the tree God or the God of the mountain. But my God with a white beard or your God with a black beard makes any more sense?
