You should ask for the levels of programming as that is not REAL learning beyond the training of animals and such that can do the tricks for rewards, BUT they haven't a CLUE much beyond that of any LARGER picture or REALITY.

I find it interesting that the so called grown up educated people can't manage their finances any better then the uneducated and immature.

I AM the monsters that many fear and try and deny as I get in the way of the make believe and pretend realities that most prefer in ignorance with their very own personal choices.

You are trying to measure and weigh illusion mostly as the HONEST and factual evidence would show,

that most try and pretend that they are something that they are not with the delusions of them becoming what they wish for like magic. Just say the words, do the dance and get a gold star on a fancy piece of paper.

You can BUY most anything in a world filled with deceptions and lies called good.
Life is what YOU make it,
Most just try and fake it...

Atheism ('apatheism' might be more accurate): I see religion mainly through a historical and sociological lens, and am by no means an 'anti-theist'. I actually think that organized religion is, overall, probably a good thing.

I don't know, I guess the only thing I didn't fail was agricultural science, but the teacher literally let us smoke pot in class.

I'm atheist. I don't think there is enough evidence to support a belief in God.

Yeah, I want to hear that one, too, especially considering Sarra appears to have placed here entire faith in it. I would wonder though, if that if her math can be refuted, will she choose to believe otherwise?

What's interesting about that is the fact you use reason and rationale in your thinking process. I've looked a several profiles of believers and have found many of them purporting academic degrees, yet their posts look like their written by sophomores in high school.

Well done, sir.

Might be, but if there is, we haven't stumbled across it yet.
