Anyway, faith is a belief held through lack of evidence. I suppose your separation of faith and blind faith would be lack of evidence and no evidence? Either way, if there isn't enough evidence to support a belief, than it's not warranted to hold it. Saying it takes faith is just silly. That's another way of saying you really want to believe something, despite not having a good reason to. In other words, an excuse to indulge your desire. If your reason can't overcome your desires, don't cry to me about that and call me a hypocrite.
As for my arguments being incapable of convincing you or anyone else who has forsaken their reason, well yeah, no shit. As Thomas Paine said, "to argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead."
Were I to return to this blog more regularly, I'd probably switch to a premade design. There are also some affordable people out there who'll customize a theme for you.
The saddest is seeing grown men not only try and justify that, but justify the Star Wars prequels. Pathetic. Never underestimate the lengths people will take to rationalize their indulgences.
Perhaps the Pope should do like Lucas and just sell the franchise to Disney. When you start editing out donkeys from the Nativity, you're no better than Lucas monkeying with the original Star Wars. Just let it go and leave it to people who can better manage the franchise.
(Let's see if this appears)
My name is on the infamous blog Nick keeps referring to, so the accusation that I'm not showing backbone and hiding behind an anonymous tag is demonstrably false.
What he actually was trying to do was see what contributions to CG I've made, as if that was relevant to the discussion. It wasn't, and still isn't. Nick was uncomfortable with my questions, so he needed to an excuse to delete me.
I'm assuming this won't appear, but you'll see it, Nick. Oh, and anyone going to my blog will see it as well. :)
Ultimately yes, it's insecurity. An indulger who doesn't give a shit what others say or do is secure and comfortable with himself and his indulgences.
