I don't think you realize how little credibility you have on SoL. You are not widely seen as reasonable, or impartial. Maybe it's not fair, maybe it's unjust, but it is what it is. Some of the other...

Many would hail the Global Freedom Agreement of 2123, which established democracy as the only form of government, as the beginning of a new era in peace and liberty. But no one was ready for the...

No one was saying that it was the primary cause, merely that militant atheism was an aspect of the French Revolution.

I'm surprised that this wasn't told to you. The church was associated with the monarchy, and you also had a lot of wealthy bishops and other religious figures. The pope sided against France in the...

Because of Internet marketing, it's a safe bet that a fair number of online reviews, including those on review aggregate sites, are faked. They could be positive fakes, or negative ones. You can't...

You literally just cited a study saying that religious people are fundamentally less altruistic. That certainly fits my definition of "othering".

That's what I was referring to. I don't think one's behavior in a game necessarily denotes their behavior in real life. A very conscientious and moral person might still enjoy booting up Postal 2.

I would question this bit, since I'm not sure if secularism could even be said to have existed at the time. While greed was undoubtedly the doge's prime motivation, the Sack of Constantinople also...

Civilization would not exist without religion. And all the offenses you ascribe to religion can just as easily be ascribed to other dogmas.
