    There is no such thing as a nominative 'Christian', or a nominative 'Muslum'...there are just a whole bunch of people who all choose to be stupid and/or ignorant in their own individual way because they think it makes them happier than the alternative. And maybe it does... My mom gets a certain gleam in her eye when she tells me how she believes certain people are in fact actually angels (I don't know whom in particular she means...), and my pop finds a certain meaning for his existence in the knowledge that one day the End-times will arrive (Israel and nukes). My point is that all religious people choose their own particular blind-spots---it is not assigned by the church. Even within the rigid walls of dogma constructed in the Vatican City, I'm sure the Pope and all of his cardinals have different beliefs about this aspect or that aspect of the material world. How do I know this? Because they are all individual human beings regardless of their wacky beliefs.

    But I'm a human too...I wonder where I refuse to look?

    Determinism. It's ugly. I don't like it. I don't want it to be true. I like having a free-will. I'm not going to be happy if it turns out that I do not. But it won't matter, since I won't have a choice in the matter regardless. That stinks. I like choices....I'm an American dammit.
