I don't fault people who have issues with their brains. I am not perfect, either; no one is.
Guess my stepson was autistic as a teenager then.
Johanne, I was interested in your answer to Brewer about all the Craig threads. I don't think you have an infatuation/crush sort of thing obviously. But it seems like quite an intense focus on the guy. True, he is all over the place in debates with regular people but it has seemed to me there might be more behind it. When you were young were you religious and were you made to proselytize to others? (That was my hunch.) Regardless, obviously there is a lot that deserves bashing where that joker is concerned.
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes.
Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.
