    What is Religion?

    The simplest explanation I could find is "the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods." Notice that it says "a superhuman controlling power" so...

    It definitely made the POA into a prayer. You...

    I don't think adding 'under god' made it a prayer. It's not addressed to a deity, nor does it require any deity perform some act of patronage over the nation.

    I think it does resemble a prayer in...

    These Christians contributed quite considerably, and made way for quite a bit of the science, that is not at all ignored- that bit you (plural) ignored lol.

    And it's not only about maintaining muscle. Bones need to work or they weaken and atrophy. Picking up weight, lifting, pushing, any type of resistance training is good for the bones as well as the...

    There would still be a GOP--there are areas that vote very, very red and even fixing the voting situation won't make them blue. There would be a lot more blue in the statehouses, though.[/QUOTE]I...

    excellent, though the Pledge isn't a prayer. Hopefully they weren't doing prayers in the first place.[/QUOTE]

    It was not a prayer until it was given the words under god. Then it became a prayer.

    It really doesn't get much clearer than that

    Someone who is using the word theory for scientific theory is probably scientifically illiterate. If not, then willfully ignorant.
  17. These gods are unlike other alleged Santa-like...

    These gods are unlike other alleged Santa-like creatures in that they are so undefined. If one doesn't like one aspect of the story you can ignore it and invent some other attribute more agreeable. ...
