You aren't a real cavebear?!

All i know is lies.

That is the nature of human psychology ... the futility of knowing.  Either you don't know, or what you know isn't so ... or if what you know is so, you wish you didn't know ;-)

What are you doing?
Are you taking any medications?
Don't do that.

How do you know that?

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

At least I can always trust that you are a giant, man-killing praying mantis. I don't know how I would cope if even that was a lie...

Your dad or my dad?  Dad-dad (someplace in Iraq I hear)?

No, I would choose a person, preferably historical.  Spinoza is a better choice than Einstein or Darwin.

I agree completely.  Indeed, I was apologizing for MY failure to understand your choice of avatar.  You can't even take an APOLOGY?  Wow...
Atheist born, atheist bred.  And when I die, atheist dead!
