Comment 12 and 13 and 14 and 15.

Wow - all for me?

Thanks Galactor.

Comment 12. Religion subdues ppl? Wait! Wut? I thought one of New Atheism's principle complaints against religion was based on the opposite of this claim - that religious people arent subdued ENOUGH!

Why I am not surprised at Lion IRC's comprehension skills?

I comment on what he says god does by saying a belief in god subdues people. He responds from the position of non-belief as though that follows in any way at all.

LION IRC: god gives people freedom from shit

GALACTOR: no he doesn't; he just dumbs them to reality

LION IRC: but atheists think that religious people aren't dumbed down enough!

His responses really are that incongruous.
