Not a big fan of no parking in front of church. I've seen countless times how those spots are empty and not used by the churches. What a waste.

Here's another one, I think it's time for a cap on halal carts. It was something of a novelty a few years ago but there are too many now!!

It wasn't meant to compare any groups. But if it seemed that way, I apologize for causing misunderstanding.
For what it's worth a lot of secular jews don't like Hassidim and don't want to be associated with them.

You wonder needlessly. I am a confirmed atheist since about age 12 and have no need to "cope" with my hatred of all religions. They are no more logical, advanced or good for man than the worship of Amun Ra so many millennia ago.

My favorite religion quote:
"Religion was invented the day the first con man met the first fool."

Religion was invented the first time uneducated ancient man looked up and saw things he couldn't understand. It has filled the same role ever since.

You've actually, inadvertently, given a good argument for the truth of theism.

Goedel's Incompleteness Theorems mean that any closed logical system is necessarily incomplete. That includes the mind of man, which is doomed to epistemic nihilism without some transcendent standard beyond and above it to justify and explain it.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but as far as academia is concerned, the new atheism is the new ignorant dogma. It's the mordant flourish of a bygone era, namely that of Verificationism. The highest tiers of post-graduate education are actually desecularizing right now.

Yeah. I think we've gone off-topic a bit. Send me a message if you change your mind.

New Yorkers are provincial and convinced they're "number one" when all you have to do is visit other so-called world class cities to see what a backwards dump NYC is.
