You are strawmanning again. Stupid habit you have.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Drivel should not be posted every time the impulse arises.

History is made up of sweeping generalizations, so pot calling kettle black.  If you have a nuanced view of what Churchill was doing in FDR's bathroom at Hyde Park ... share it ... but I don't see how you can justify knowing it to be so.  You are like an academic, who hates all other academics.  But they say philosophers are even more abusive than historians.  If you are trying to protect the British reputation, say so.

This statement seems equally unsupported by fact.  Just saying...

The only fact is ... you just posted that.  What it means, is arguable, not factual.  Even what you think your post means, because you could be delusional.  You might think you are a bear, instead of a 17th century philosopher.

You got me cold on this.  I am a 17th century ursus spelaeus.  Can't speak, can't think, dumb right out of hibernation.  I'm a dream of a thought of a dream.  I don't really exist.

Great ... if you are in a dream, and you are Brahman ... then don't wake up ... it ends the universe!  At least you aren't delusional breakfast cereal (Lucky Charms) .... then you are dumb right out of the box ;-))
