Re: 14 Fundamentals of Falsifying the Prophet

Maybe we should spend the next 6 months combing the quotes archive for good responses when the lesson happens.

Re: 14 Fundamentals of Falsifying the Prophet

I had debated on whether the lesson in the new manual would be an appropriate one to skip or whether it was a can't miss lesson.

Re: Useful quote of the day...

Think this has been used, but to repeat: "I have said these things because I fear dictatorial dogmatism, rigidity of procedure and intolerance even more than I fear cigarettes, cards, and other devices the adversary may use to nullify faith and kill religion. Fanaticism and bigotry have been the dea...
