Also, thinking futher about it... I have a theory... I think that The Socratic method may be part of that too.

Agreed, that and I kind of have a liking for... well... evidence.

Careful... For it is written: "Thou shalt tailor thy arguments to thy audience, for they are in league with the political correctness police."

Look, I've seen secularists on forums who think theists are crazy, and I've seen theists who think secularists are crazy. Honestly, I think it all depends on how the person expresses themselves. People like Jae, J7, Achilles, etc, etc- they're the kind of people who are evidence to the fact that woo does not stem from their personal perspective of things.

However, woo is very fun. Irrationality can be hilarious if you do it in good humor, and are laughing with a person being irrational, not at them.

Please feed the trolls. XD
