Physics is a scientific belief and is based on truth, which is religion.

Well, that's great, you're surrounded here on the board by people who also don't believe in religions, or religion.

Oddly enough, not believing in religion doesn't extend to not believing in human psychology. Really mull that over for a minute. There's something about human psychology that offends you so much...absent any argument against it's truth as an observation, you hope to equate it with some untrue thing and so, render it powerless in your life.

Recently get an unkind diagnosis? Maybe - and I'm just spitballing here, work on resolving whatever issue was addressed, rather than pretending it isn't an issue in your life?

That's a hell of a commitment.......

Is that statement...well...true? Do you religiously believe that the thing you just said isn't full of shit?

When Scientologists come to power.

David Miscavige 2024!
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Psychology has real material to work with. Decades of statistics, tests and work with human mind on how it works and how to cure it, at least partially. No big mysteries there.
