shame it's my niece and she's generally nice with a doctorate nogal in homeopathy but her mind is totally loopy with woo...so's her mother's.
my response took family feelings into account I think so I tread softly:

Ek glo nie in die spirit nie..ok nie in die sg. god waarvan jy praat nie. snaaks jy praat van spectacles (dis deur die scientists ontwikkel) om woo te sien. LOL. Wat ek gevind het is totalle verlossing van al die nonsens. dankie tog! Soos jy se it's about choices....[\quote]

[Goodness me, “e-motions” must be what only scientologists can detect.
Why is it that the barely literate are almost always among the first in leaping to the defence of the indefensible?  Or would that be a rhetorical question?

I love that e-meter  Evil ...but think about it...it is exactly the barely literate or illiterate (aka naive)who are the most vocal and loyal supporters of woo...when churches established schools they realised this and took control of children's education ensuring that virgin minds are not cluttered with reason and logic.

At the risk of being accused of quote mining here are some nice one's by Luther as well:

Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has.

At the risk of not know the context of the quotes and resorting to ad hominem ....Martin Luther was a prat.

No argument...if you followed the thread it had to do with semi-illiterate comment by Mefiante and why churches take control of education.

You know that it’s time to quit when the fans of various editions of god begin confronting one another over whose god gets the credit for an alleged miracle that, really, no god had any hand in.  And to think that such inordinate fruitcakes are vested with any kind of authority beyond their barely adequate potty training.

I picked up an article of an atheist defending xtianity on opposing views. In my view she is fake and trying to get into the limelight...she certainly has a very poor understanding of atheism.click http://www.opposingviews.com/i/s-e-cupp-the-right-wing-atheist-who-defends-christianity
